My name is Jerry. I own a Akai 120 +rw/+r Homerecorder. It worked fine until I recorded on +r 1x8 write speed recordable disc . at first it was recording the 1x8 fine then only some , now it won’t record +rw1x4, +r-1x4 or 1x8+r . It will record for a few minutes then the recorder states write fail. The drive in the unit is a Lite-on it DDW-411S. Is my drive gone Or would a firmware upgrade be in order. when it records it makes a lot of noise the Macrovision over ride is 2960 on the exit button secret menu. could any one give me some insight as to what my problem might be. thank you Jerry Akai 120 dvd recorder .
