[quote=Arachne;2012751]Device Manager (under “DVD/CD-ROM drives”) should tell you the model of your drive.
Though if your drive can burn +R DL fine (and non-Verbatim ones, no less!), I suspect it will have no problems burning -R media.
However…the -R media you’re using (RITEK G05) has been known to degrade badly shortly after burning, so perhaps it’s a blessing in disguise that you can’t use them.
I would suggest Verbatim -R media, or even Sony or HP -Rs.
Onto Alcohol…to eliminate this as a possible problem, now or in the future, go into Alcohol’s Settings, and under Emulation, make sure “Ignore Media Type” is [B]not[/B] checked.
That, along with a switch to better media, should solve the problem :)[/quote]
Thanks for the help, i checked alcohol and that’s not the problem.
This is what my device manager shows:
So you think its not the fact the the DVDs are -R, its because they are cheap?
The ones which worked were DL DVD+R and i later found that even those didn’t work! I burnt a few ISOs which apparently went fine, but when i put the DVDs in to load it up it wouldn’t recognise a DVD was even in the drive.
