Hi!

I have bought a TDK 4x DVD-R with the following media information:

Any experiences with these TDK media?

These TTG01 discs are made in Japan, high quality discs, so the problem is definitely the Lite-On’s firmware. Try updating to the latest version of the firmware.

Already tried HS0P - the latest firmware. But still not recognized…

I don’t think the poster stated WHERE the discs were made. TDK uses many suppliers of media.

According to the jewel case, mine are made in Taiwan.

Looks like I’ll be returning my TDK’s :frowning: Does anyone know of a “safe list” for the Liteon 811s until/if Liteon releases a firmware update for compatibility?

If you need DVD-R, Maxell made in Japan, and TY are pretty safe bets.
