CMC MAG. AE1 can be good discs, but IMO anything under the Bulkpaq brand is suspect (lower quality).

Have you tried a different brand to rule out the discs?


#3

Since the other brand dics ran out these type of disc’s are the only ones I have. I used a tool from another site which seems to have an effect on the DVD-RW. So far 3 successful disc’s in a row !!

But is there and explanation on why all this happend ?
Virus perhaps ?
I tried updating my firmware but I couldon’t find the appropriate software.


#4

Interesting - what tool did you find that enabled the discs to burn?

It looks like your Litey has OEM firmware (I have two 1635S’s and the firmwares are completely different to yours) - did your drive come installed in a pre-built PC, such as Dell, HP etc?

If so, try the PC manufacturer’s website. If you can’t find any firmware there, post back and I’m sure someone can help you switch to proper LiteOn firmware :wink:


#5

Im not sure what it was called as i deleted the program lol. Il have a look and find out.
Yes my drive did come pre-built and my PC is Compaq
Il have a look at the Compaq site and il get back to you :smiley:
Regards.


#6

Just burnt another DVD …failed …It writes it successfully but iv realised on ImgBurn whilst its Syncronising Cache it stays on that mode for a bit and then when the Disc comes out I have like two layers burnt on that disc.
Don’t know weather you understood that…


#7

I would suspect, given the brand of disc you’re using, that it’s just variation in disc quality - I’ve had the same thing happen with CMC MAG. AE1’s under the Datawrite brand.

If you can try and grab a better brand of disc, your burn luck should improve. If it doesn’t, post back and we can go from there. :slight_smile:

I’m gessing it might just be the blanks, although straight after this failed task I tried it again using a different blank and burned perfect.
I haven’t had this many fail burns in a long long long time

Your firmware needs an update.
You also need better media.


#10

Can you direct me to where I can do that please ?

This is excellent advice. Please try these out and post again with results. Hopefully you wont have any more problems.


#12

Lite-On drives can get firmware from the Lite-On site.
http://www.liteonit.com/global/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=154


#13

Can someone please guide to me this perfect adivce?

I tried that site yesterday, the software I had downloaded apparantly there was no LITE-ON drive detected.
I downloaded the LITE-ON 1635S but for my firmware yp70 i couldon’t get hold of.


#14

As I said yesterday, a different brand of media is probably all that’s needed ;).

Perhaps post in our LiteOn forum, about flashing LiteOn firmware onto your drive. Perhaps an extra step is needed since you drive currently has OEM firmware.
