When i bought the Asus one i bought a second Samsung just to give it a second try to the brand:

SH-224DB/BEBE - OEM



SLOW SLOW SLOW as the first one i bought last year.

I don't know if you guys burn double layer dvd's, but those 2 models fail miserably doing that.


What should i do know? Maybe a new Lite on perhaps? Sony i really miss you.

I don't know where you get your gear from Smiths but I get the impression Newegg is the place of choice in your part of the world - I am only guessing but these area few choices for DL burners
ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Asus DRW-24B1STA 24X Internal DVD-RW Drive (Black) Bulk - Newegg.com

Lenovo Super Multi-Burner Drive SATA Model 0A65618 - Newegg.com

New Panasonic UJ262 UJ-262 9.5mm SATA Super Slim Ultrathin 6X 3D Blu-ray Burner BD-RE Dual Layer Recorder 8X DVD-RAM Writer Tray Loading Optical Drive - Newegg.com
to name but three - a bit more expensive than your usual drive but I suppose that is par for the course.

he he because of my comments i might give the impression i buy at the Jawa's disposal store lol!

But no i bought these units at the same place i have bought for the last 15 years, same place where i bought my reliable and fast sony drivers, to be sincere i was expecting these results with Asus and Samsung.

* The Asus unit can read dvd's and burn 4.7 GB dvd's without issue, problem happens when i try to burn a double layer Sony DVD. These Sony discs were the BEST on the market.

* The Samsung unit pretty much works, it can burn double layer discs without any issue, problem is if i want to intall windows 7 pretty much will take me, perhaps 40 minutes instead of 20, lame... It verifies burned dvd's at 6.5 x LOL

I'm not in the States so i can't buy at the new egg sadly, both units have a LOT of bad reviews but more positive than negative however who burns double layer dvd's nowadays? i bet we are just a few..

It's pretty sad to say goodby to Sony, i didn't even rip all my music collection yet... i guess i never will now.

I could still try an LG or a Lite on, don't know the models but know where to find one of each...

Ok so you are in Canada? as your public profile comes up as band of territory that takes in the US Canada and a bit of central America - it threw me

I am just curious as to why you want to burn to DL disks cos usually one uses them for films etc Mind you installing Windows over 40 mins is pretty ordinary and I am assuming you mean just the base system stuff not the updates etc .

As a general rule the slower one burns to and loads from a disk is better even though it is tedious because the data has less chance of being corrupted or altered missed etc ie burning say an ISO of a sytem at 8x is better than at 24x.

Now the Lite on I have had a few and they are really good and in fact I only swapped out the one in my Ivy Bridge build to a Samsung because the Samsung was a Blu ray and in my tiny mind because the laser uses a blue spectrum light it is more precise a beam than say the usual red spectrum ie it is narrower so more data / info can be put on the disk. Well that is as far as I know the principle for Blu ray films being a better picture / graphics because more data is and can be used to make up the graphics for example. But I stand to be corrected of course.

@ smiths22:

If you're in Canada, you can buy at Newegg.ca or NCIX.com. Both good options.

Well North America (mainland) is: Canada, The United States and Mexico not a first world country here mate so there you go...

Files are bigger and bigger each time i can store 2 4.7 discs in 1 double layer disc and save physical space. I collect music and video rarities generally, not movies.

Ok if 40 mins is the average time for installing Windows 7 base system, then using my old Sony drivers took me 20 minutes.

The burn at 8x was ok for the Samsung one (no more than 8x being a double layer disc) but checking at 6x? really?, also trying to perform a clean windows install....too slow IMO.

Guess i should give a try to a Lite on then, i have a 10 years old one, its the winner regarding noise, sounds like a blender when copying files to the HDD but perhaps a current one will perform better.

But definitely the ASUS has been the worst of them all, not being able to burn a double layer disc? fail.

Not sure what you`re talking about here, but Windows takes exactly 15 minutes to install from a dvd from start to finish.

Exactly, if it takes 40 minutes your optical drive sucks (In my case Samsung).

Big time, put it on a flash drive.

But, no drive made in the last 5 years will take 40 minutes.

Yeah some people, i think, assume Samsung performance is normal even good but if you try another brand you will notice the difference immediately at least for the models i have bought.

I might be using a flash drive for Windows 10, why not, memories are pretty cheap nowadays so maybe its the time for using one.

Still i need a decent optical DVD burner... i don't trust LG either (yeah i know MR untrustable guy here) but i bought two like 20 years ago both were DOA. Lite on next...
