Need your help Guys, sorry if I go on a bit but Iâ€™m pulling my hair out.
Just Got Medion M8383 3.4Ghz PC. Has Medion OEM version of Pioneer 108 drive.
I am Trying dual layered backups for the first time and so far have Â£30 worth of coasters. Not sure if the drive is faulty or if Iâ€™m doing something wrong. Iâ€™m using DVD shrink & Nero 18.104.22.168 with Verbatim 2,4 DVD+R DL media. Have also tried Traxdata but they seem even worse.
When I play the written media back it plays up to about half way â€œabout 1hour 10 mins or soâ€ I think this is the layer break, and then stops or jumps several chapters and continues. Have tried playback on 2 standalone DVD players and PS2 and all do the same thing.
Does this sound like the drive is faulty? ?
DO I need particular firmware for Medion OEM version or something like that???
After 2 or 3 failures I flashed the drive with Firmware 1.14 (unofficial by â€œGradiusâ€). And is still the same. Now Iâ€™m wondering if I can put the original firmware back for warranty purposes.
Any ideas or advice gratefully received.
Have Burt 3 DVD-R single layered media fine on the new 108 drive, just the DL that I cant get to work.
I used Pioneer A06 in previous machine and have made approx 200 â€œBackupsâ€ of DVDâ€™s on old machine using compression with DVD Shrink and Verbatim DVD-Râ€™s. Never had a single coaster very happy with what I was doing and media quality etc, Now am at a loss as to why things not working.
