When a disc is written at a higher than normal speed, SmartWrite will automatically create a new writing strategy for it. For testing purposes, we printed a disc using Verbatim’s LightScribe v1. This is very useful if you are trying to record a disc that uses another company’s MID code I. If black isn’t your color, you’re in luck. It not only shares the same basic bezel design, but has many of the same logos. Using the bundled software you can both create and burn LightScribe disc labels.

Like most drives, it did not pass the “three sheep” test.
These special discs have a thin dye coating on the label side that absorbs laser light. This buffer is backed up by Super-Link buffer underrun protection as well. Most major software companies have pledged support for the technology. By looking at the picture below you can see the drive’s Lightsribe interface and power connector. Of course you can’t do this with just any drive, media or software. By looking at the picture below you can see the drive’s IDE interface, power connector and audio output connectors.
They supperallwrite must be able to recognize LightScribe media.
To do this, OverSpeed relies heavily on SmartWrite. This triggers a chemical reaction that produces a color change, allowing the user to print text, artwork or graphics.
Lite-On 20x Super All Write DVD RW Drive (lh20a1p186)
Here is a screen shot from Nero’s InfoTool. In this review we’ll just go over some of the basics and see how the DHA3H performs with the bundled software. They also must be able to recognize LightScribe media.
Superaolwrite is very useful if you are trying to record a disc that uses another company’s MID code I. When testing the drive’s capacity, it had no problems overburning up to 99 minutes with our CompUSA media. The retail version of the DHA3H also comes with a beige replacement bezel.
– Features – Lite-On DHA3H 20x ‘Super AllWrite’ DVD±RW/RAM – Reviews
The drive Lite-On sent us for this review was manufactured in October of and had firmware 4L Using the bundled software you can both create and burn LightScribe disc labels. This buffer is backed up by Super-Link buffer underrun protection as well. The results are shown below. For example, if your disc was normally supported at 16x, the iHAS would now give you the option to write to it at 20x.
Using the bundled software you can both create and burn LightScribe disc labels.
According to HP, it’s as simple as burning the data, flipping the disc, and then burning the label. The retail version of the iHAS also comes with a beige replacement bezel. InfoTool had no problems detecting the iHAS’s maximum reading and writing speeds, recording modes, buffer underrun protection and 2MB buffer. The new euperallwrite strategy is then created on-the-fly.
While the OverSpeed function on the DHA3H is a bit more flexible than previous incarnations, it still has some limitations. Off by default, this LED lights up green whenever the drive is reading or writing. The region can be changed five times and after that it cannot be changed anymore. If black isn’t your color, you’re in luck.
According to HP, it’s as simple as burning the data, flipping the disc, and then burning the label. While there are a few cosmetic differences, like the placement of the LED and emergency hole, it shares the same basic design and has many of the same logos.
While LightScribe capable drives use the same laser when burning both the data and label, they have to be able to accurately control the laser’s focus and position as well as the spindle speed.
For example, if your disc was normally supported at only 8x, the LHA1L would now give you the option to write to it at 16x. This program queries the drive to see what its reading and writing capabilities are. Keep in mind this option not only changes the level of detail, it also affects the amount of time it takes to print the label.
