I’m from Sweden so please excuse me if my English is hard to understand
A few days ago i got my Liteon 811S and succesfully recorded a few dvd’s(at 8x) and was happy(used Ricoh dvd+r). But then it started to burn coasters and only a few of the discs I tried to record were succesfull(Philips dvd+r and verbatim dvd+r). I never got any errors in the recording programs though(Nero 6 and later Sonic Recordnow, same problem). But my Xbox couldn’t read the discs and neither could my Sony computer DVD or the liteon-recorder.
I have probably recorded about 10 coasters right now and it’s quite boring to waste expensive discs like that. The recorder has the latest official firmware, I use mostly Recordnow Max but I have the same problem with Nero. My Xbox has the Thomson Dvd unit and it does read some of the discs perfectly so I doubt this is a media issue. I have formatted my computer(used 2k earlier) and installed xp but the same problems here.
So my big problem is that the Xbox can’t read some of the discs properly, neither can the dvd units in my computer. I basically always get perfect results when I burn a image from the hard-drive. But when I try to copy a disc like that it doesn’t work in the xbox (did that yesterday and I thought it worked fine but halfway into the film it crashed, tried some others too but they didn’t even start) .Neither does a data-dvd with for ex. mpeg-files work good in the xbox(do have a modchip).
Does anyone have any ideas? It’s hard for me to know if it’s the computer that is causing these problems or if it’s the Liteon recorder itself.
