Hi, as a newbie on here, I know that some of the stuff that I am going to post on here will have been mentioned before, but I have been trawling now for about 2 days (well it seems like it) and not really found anything.
I brought a Emprex DRW 1008 - a.k.a BTC 1008 about 3 months ago, along with some EMTEC 4x -R's from PC World (UK) and decided to have a go at DVD Burning.
I installed the drive, software etc, and then proceeded to try and burn some data onto the discs. This appeared to be successful, however when I try to then read the data from the disc, even in another DVD-Rom drive, it will not let me access it, only list the dir structure.
I then read the enclosed docs, upgraded firmware to 0159 and tried again. Same thing.
To cut what is going to be a long story short, I have just brought some RitekG04 and they seemed to be working ok, until I tried to watch a movie from one of them, and it appears that towards the end, it cuts out and jumps on my stand alone player.
For the past few days now I have been trying to fix this, I have brought some new DVD+R's and changed firmware down and up, installed diff ASPI layers, diff Nero versions, burnt ISO's from DVD Decrypter, different discs.....
One media which I did find useful is the Infiniti -R's (Have to post MID later) but unfortuanatly when I go to play an AVI Conversion (used DVD Santa + Nero) towards the end, it becomes unstable and jumpy.
I didn't know if anyone had come up with a decent combination of Firmware rev, Software Rev, and Media which they could post.
I think if I don't find something soon, I will chuck this out, and buy a new drive.
