I have an Hi-Val (Magicspin, Top-G, BTC) DVDRW IDE 1008 fw768 in my main PC & an LG GCC-4120B fw2.02 in another. When I burn a DVD-R in the IDE1008 everything seems to work well untill I try reading the media in the LG drive. This wasn’t always the case. I recently removed a Zip Drive from my main PC because I never used it, & then I started having compatibility problems.
SY-K7VTA Pro Motherboard (4.46 Hyperion Drivers)
1048Mb PC133 SDRAM
Maxtor DiamondMax ATA133 80Gb HD (Master) (UDMA)
Maxtor ATA100 60Gb HD (Slave) (UDMA)
Hi-Val DVDRW IDE1008 (Cable Selected Master) (UDMA)
Media: LEDDATA01 (4x Eagle Branded DVDs from Tiger witch have performed nicely up until now.)
This machine has recently had all CD/DVD mastering programs removed (Roxio, Alcohol, CloneDVD, Nero) and all traces of the programs have been expunged from the file system & registry. The latest version of ForceASPI has been installed & it’s freshly defragged. All it has on it at the moment is Nero 6. When I burn a disc (ISO/UDF), everything seems to go very smoothly, no errors & the resulting disc reads fine on this machine.
I’m pretty sure the LG machine is fine as I have never had a problem reading anything on this particular machine. Previous discs from the IDE1008 have rarely been a problem. This machine does have Alcohol 120%, Nero 6 & InCD on it as well. I don’t remember all the specs on this machine, but I can get them tonight if it’s deemed relevant.
Can anyone help me? Am I forgetting something? I’ve been lurking on here for 4 days or so trying to figure this thing out for myself. I’m an A+ certified tech so I’m not new to PCs at all but I’ve never encountered a problem quite like this.
