I have an Optiarc AD5540 in my dell xps laptop. The original firmware was ver 1.02c. With that firmware, I will get an error whenever I try to write to a DVD-R 16x media. Then I flashed the firmware with original version 2.01 downloaded from liggy’s site. Now I can burn DVD-R 16x media, but whenever I try to read it back, there will be a CRC error, meaning that the burned disc is useless.
I tried couple of times, and have the same result. Then I tried DVD+R 8x and it was fine. I’ve read that this drive support DVD-R 16x media, but what went wrong?
This is info I get from the disc…

Can anyone help, thanks for all your time…
