Bought a 1673S. I was able to burn CDRs at 40x and DVD+R at 8x with no problems. However, the drive will not read the discs I burned (I get the message: “Cannot read form the source file or disk”)and does not even recognize a store bought DVD movie (I get the message “A disc with an unsupported format in drive L:”). The discs that I burned with the unit read fine in my other DVD-ROM drive. The damn thing writes but does not read.
I’m running WinXP SP2 and have the drive configured as the master on the secondary IDE. Installed with WinXP drivers with no problems. Came with Firmware JS02. I tried to update to today’s release of JS05 but get an error message saying that the flash failed.
Do I have a lemon? Any suggestions before I send it back for a refund/exchange?
