Hi friends, since a few days I have a lot of problems with my 811 S.
Win2000, DMA on, Firmware DR8HS0Q, Nero 6…17, TMPGenc, Movie Factory … Never had any problems with burning DVD+R and DVD-R. In the last weeks I tested something with slideshows to burn on DVD. So I used all the time DVD+RW media. Two days before, I wanted to burn something for a friend onto a DVD+R (Memorex), but it fails. The red LED flickers one time, Nero shows - Lead in - and the LED turned to orange. There was no possibility to burn the DVD+R. I have tested this five times, also with DVD-R (Memorex) and DVD+R (Tevion). All the same. When I insert a CD-R/RW, or a DVD+RW/-RW the burner burns without any problem.
Every time, when I use DVD+R/-R the DVD will be destroyed. Nero has needed 29 hours to burn to 100 %, the media has been written, but it could not be read.
I am now reading for a lot of hours in severel communities, but no one could give me a right answer to fix this problem.
Do you mean, that the burn-unit is defect?
Or what shall I do?
Thank you from a frusted user from Germany
