I bought my LiteOn 411S burner back a few years back when it's $70 price tag was amazing for a DVD burner and I have never had it working totally correctelly since. I don't burn a lot of data onto DVD, mostelly backing up videos using DVD Shrink (latest version).
I haven't messed with it for a whial untill the otherday... I backed up a few movies and they all burned fine at 4x. I am using DYNEX DVD+R 8x media and the latest firmware released this month from LiteOn.
Problem is playback... all of the 5 I backed up are very jerkey, freeze up my comp/settop DVD player... I can't even play it in the drive I burned it from (well I can play 1 disk, somewhat).
And through all this time, I can't play even original disks with this drive. They are all jerkey and crash like the burned copies do.
My question is what am I doing wrong? Should I try burning at 2x? Should I try to mod into a 811S?
My comp - AMD 2600+, ripping from a HATACHI GD-8000 (never done anything to the hatachi, never found any firmware updates or anything).
