I have a 411 drive (FS0J firmware) that used to burn DVD-Râ€™s without any problems. After a month or so without problems Nero started to report a failure during the data verification test. The burn would finish ok, but the verification would fail. This happened 5 or 6 times in a row (different media tested) and I gave up. I tried to go to FS0F firmware but that didnâ€™t help. I let the drive sit for a few weeks and then I re-upgraded to FS0J and re-installed Nero. I was able to burn and verify 3 DVD-Râ€™s, but now I just had 4 in a row that failed data verification. Whatâ€™s the deal?
My brother has the same drive and uses the same media without any problems. Is the drive just bad? I have a friend with a pioneer drive that has never had a bad burn. Is LiteOn junk?
