1693s wont recognise CDR when burning



Hi, I’ve just installed my first DVDRW drive and have tried to burn a CDR, but it keeps telling me to insert a blank disc. I am using new Verbatim and Memorex discs and have tried burning from Nero , RealPlayer and iTunes. It reads CDR’s and DVD’s and I have flashed the latest firmware from the LiteOnIt site - I am running XP SP2, any ideas where I am going wrong as I have read through a lot of posts and can’t find this one!!
Cheers, KoolDood !! :cop:

Had the same issue with my 832 last year. Did not recognise Taiyo Yuden cdr’s at all, and had a hard time with other brands, had to load them repeatedly to get them recognised. I RMA’d the drive, and got a 1633 in return. I’d say, swap your drive. No use fussing around!
