I have a 411s which started acting up and wouldn’t recognize my RITEKG04 DVD-R blanks. Basically the drive would just spin and spin and after a few ejects would finally read the blank and let me burn. Now it’s getting worse to the point where the drive refuses to recognize them. Unfortunately it’s passed the warranty period. Here’s what I’ve tried:
- Updated to latest firmware and firmware that is supposed to be ideal for dvd-r. Noticed that after flashing, it would recognize the first blank but none after.
- Flashed to 811s, tried latest firmware + others supposed to be ideal for dvd-r.
- Used the forceaspi tool to load 4.60.
Nothing works. However, the drive does recognize Maxell 8x DVD-R, MXLRG03 media. This is my second spindle of G04s, the first batch worked flawless. This batch seems to be crap, inner ring numbers start with J4 while my first batch was H4.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
