I just received my new liteon 1693s burner. I also ordered some blank osi brand dvd+r’s 50 pack for 15$. They are identified as being Taiyo Yudens 8x DVD+R’s, I tried burning a DVD video cd and also copied a game onto that media. Nero successfully completes the burns and there are no error messages but when I go to play the cd’s windows pops up with an errror message saying Disk is not formatted - cannot read disk, either corrupted or using incompatible format. The thing is the disks can not be read on my dvd burner (and its the one that burned them!) but they are playable in our other pc (philips/dell burner) and the cheapo no-name DVD player we have. I updated the firmware to the latest from ks09 to ks0b, and I also reduced the burning speed to 6x from 8x… and it still fails to read on my pc. Next I tried a Sony brand 8x DVD-R disk, I successfully burned onto it, and this time my PC will play the cd. Also my PC’s burner has no problems playing anything that was burned on my brothers dell/philips burner, or retail movies. So… is the OSI disks fake Taiyo Yudens and just garbage dvds? I find it funny that they do play on his pc and our dvd player just not on mine. Also… How good does this scan look to you from the sony dvd? ps. supposedly my burner handles DVD+R’s better then the DVD-R’s… Any suggestions? and I don’t have any more dvd+r media besides the OSI ones to test on the burner.
mmmm… can’t figure out how to do attachments. heres what its says through kprobe on the sony media anyways…
