If you still remember me, i have a 812 that doesn’t write DVD+R media (all coasters).
i found a liteon 1633s at a very-very good price: is it better than the 812/832 series? i mean in media compatabilaty? what firmware is best for it? what media does it like? i’d probably use verbatim mcc or philips ricoh, and some verbatom dvd+rw.
if all goes ok, i’m receiving it on friday/saturday…
and this time, the very first thing i’m going to do is to backup firmware + eeprom. with my current 812, i burned few cdr’s, then the liteon media provided in the retail package, and i guess that this mis-calibrated the eeprom calibration data.
i’m also selling my 812 to a friend, at a price of a combo CD writer + dvd reader (he knows the problem), as it writes CD-R perfectly.
