I'm having a bit of an issue with the above combo... Basically, I am doing a VHS-to-DVD project for a friend. When I started out I was using a Liteon 411S@811S, and I burned 2 DVDs, 1 using Nero and 1 using Pinnacle Studio. They were on Maxell DVD-R (RG04, I believe) and KHypermedia DVD-R (CMC). Both played fine in his Panasonic set-top.
Later I switched to an NEC 2500@2510, burned another Maxell DVD-R from the same batch with Studio. This also worked fine in his player.
Since then I have switched to the DW1620. The latest burn I did for him was on a Ritek DVD+R bitset to DVD-R with B7P9. It won't play in his player.
Now, my understanding is that bitsetting should make a DVD+R look like a DVD-R to the player, right? I've verified that the burned disc shows up as a DVD-R in Nero, so I'm confident that the bitsetting worked.
So my question is: does the 1620 somehow burn differently than the LiteOn and NEC, causing the Panasonic to not recognize the disc? Has anyone else experienced this type of thing?
