Iâ€™m having a rather odd hardware problem, and I wonder if anyone has some insight or advice. I have 2 DVD players â€¦ an old APEX 500 (still works great) and a newer JVC home entertainment system. I decided to get a DVD burner specifically so I could make DVDâ€™s to watch on both systems, but especially the APEX. I first bought an HP external DVD burner, with a batch of DVD+R disks (web research indicated that the APEX 500 would only play +Râ€™s) … some Memorex & some Kodak. I authored & burned a couple of DVDâ€™s using Ulead Movie Factory 3 and they worked great on both the JVC & the APEX. I decided to return the external DVD burner and purchase an internal, and after some research I settled on the Pioneer DVR-108 dual layer burner â€¦ good reviews, good price. I created a couple of DVDâ€™s on the same Memorex DVD+R disks using the same Ulead software. They work fine in the JVC â€¦ but they wonâ€™t work in the APEX!! After spinning around for a bit, the APEX indicates that the disk is damaged, and then indicates there is no disk. Again, same brand disks & same software. Exactly the same thing happened with the Kodak disks.
I ended up returning the Pioneer, and I just installed an LG GSA-4120B. SAME $Â£%& PROBLEM!!
Can anyone help? I intend to keep GSA-4120B, but if I canâ€™t produce disks that work on the APEX it really defeats the main purpose of buying it in the first place!
