Thanks for the great info on this site.
I recently purchased an ASUS DRW-1612BL and am having a minor problem with it, or possibly with me.
I've been using CloneDVD and AnyDVD to successfully burn many DVD+R DL Verbatim discs with my BenQ DW1650 burner. I wanted a second burner for unattended burns. I would have bought another 1650 if I could find one, it's very good. I chose the 1612 because it was fairly capable and very quiet.
My problem is that whenever I try to burn a DL, CloneDVD gives me the message; "Writing to video media was not successful: source data too large". Under details it says; "WriteDVD 14 W2".
I've searched on this problem but haven't found a clear solution.
This problem only occurs when writing to the Asus. If I read from the Asus and write to the BenQ, I have no problems, so I know it's not the media.
The Asus can burn faster though, that's why I want to use it for writing.
Also, with Nero Bitsetting and ImgBurn I am unable to set the Booktype on this drive.
The 1612 is also a DVD-RAM drive and that's how XP recognizes it, and maybe that is the cause of my problem?
Although ImgBurn recognizes my drives as "Found 1 DVDÂ±RW and 1 DVDÂ±RW/RAM!".
DMA is enabled, I don't think cables are the problem since I've switched the cables to the opposite drive and it was the same.
Thanks for any helpful info.
