Hi i am new to your forum :)…
Hoping you can help me fix my burner.
I have a Sony VAIO RB38g and it just been upgraded to the DRU-830A DVDRW.
Anyways i bought the computer from bestbuy. The old drvie that was in it stopped recording dvd’s. I have a PSP on the system so it was covered under warranty.
GEEKSQUAD setup the drive for me i got it home and was able to burn dvd’s i was happy :)… Used fujifilm DVD - r and Sony DVD + r
I was having problems with other things besides the dvdrw, so i did a system restore. Ever since i did that i was unable to burn dvd’s again. i only had 1x speeds in nero for making my own dvd’s using a dvd-r or +r.
I remember when i went to go pick my computer up, they said they were putting drivers in. So i assumed the drivers were on the cd that they didn’t give me. I updated the frimware to SS25 and still couldnt burn a dvd.
I’m not sure what i did…
I’m not sure what version of firmware they used if any at all. I ended up updating it again over the same verion that was already in it. From the 1st time i upgrded the firmware myself after doing a system restore.
As for now i can record a data dvd it records at 8x using FujiFilm DVD-r and 16x using sony dvd+r.
It wont let me even use my Sony dvd-rw V1.1 discs , i get errors even if i try to format or record something on the disc.
Other media i’m using is Memorex DVD+R DL not sure if i can record with these disc as of yet. I also have SOny Cd-r i havent tried to use these yet either
Thats all i know i’m really not sure what i can or can’t do.
