I was just wondering if it was normal to have problems reading a DVD-RW writen by the 411 or 411@811 burners (using FSOF, FSOJ and HSOP respectively). I burned a +RW as a +R disc (setting the bitsetting to ROM wasn’t needed) and I could take the disc out and read it in my comps DVD-ROM drive (samsung dvd-rom sd-616t).
However, my -RW burned as a -R isn’t readable in ANYTHING other than the Liteon 411 that burned it. The 411 is the only thing I have that can read the -RW disc.
I’ve used “good” media (pretty expensive Memorex and Imation). I’ve tried completely erasing a disc first, full formatting, etc…nothing seems to work. It works great with +RW media.
Also, while my laptop can see -R and +R media, it can’t read -RW or +RW media, no matter how I burn it. Is that normal, too?
