When I am writing a DVD+R at 8 speed the light on the drive is constantly flashing between orange and red.
The disk I am writing is imation DVD+R. Lite-on's SMART-Burn utility returns the following information for this disk:
Drive Type = DVD DUAL
Disc Type = DVD+R (Single Layer)
Disc MID = 52 49 43 4F 48 4A 50 4E (RICOHJPN)
Disc TID = 52 30 31 (R01)
Manufacturer Maybe = Ricoh Company Limited
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 8.0X (Write)
I am burning the disk with Nero 220.127.116.11. I am running WindowsXP on an Athlon 2600 with 512MB and a VIA KT4V chipset. The drive is configured as master on the secondary IDE channel and shows to be in UDMA mode 2 in the windows device manager.
Is this a problem with this particular media or is my system not correctly configured?
