Can't use DVD +R or +R DL in iHAP322



So this iHAP322 says it will handle these but it just doesn’t work and processes forever trying to figure them out. It did this under XP and is still doing it with Win 7. I have the latest firmware updating utility from Liteon. It did update the drive but it made zero difference.

I can read DVDs as in movies as well as CDs from other machines. But even a DVD +R written by my portable Liteon SHM-165P6SX on the same PC is unreadable by this drive. That one seems to handle the DVD +R and DL format just fine.

I can’t help but think this is some sort of a firmware issue or were a bunch of these just not able to do what they claimed. This one was built in 2008.

Any sort of tools I can use to figure this out before I just toss it out?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.


No comments or ideas on this before I toss it in the trash?


i’ve got the same problem ;\
