The writer is at the lastest firmware, GSB7 , I did read a lot here before purchasing and when the compability problem showedup, but too much information and too many tools to make sense of in a short amount of time, that is why I decided to ask for help
FYI, I even upgraded it to GS0F (851S) successfully, but since I didn't do the speed hack, it still burnt at 4X, Only today I found out that I should have used the speedhacked firmware to write at 8X on 4X media. Now it is back at GSB7, the version I got from liteon's web site.
I am using memorex+RW and Memorex-RW dvd's only as I am jobless and don't want to create coasters.
Which program do I use to show you guys more information ? There seems to be so many of them.
I am running a WIndows XP PRO/SP1, Celeron 2.2 overclocked to 2.9, nero 22.214.171.124. (demo version)
The manual for the dcd player shows only DVD_r compatibility but, the dvdrhelp site shows that it is supposed to be compatible
with almost everything.
Obviously somebody was able to use the same media, and the -rw failed for one person ... Not a very common player I guess
