I have a LITE-ON DVDRW LH-18A1H using 1Click DVD Copy 5 and AnyDVD
and RiDATA DVD+R DL media.
Briefly, I have attempted, several times to make a complete backup copy of the newest Pirates movie. In the process, I have destroyed several of these DL discs. The first few I created worked on a computer but would not play on a set top DVD player.
Per LG (1 CLick) I reduced the burn speed to 4x and made a settings change in AnyDVD. No change.
I then, at their suggestion, upgraded my burner firmware from HL07 to HL09. I also, dwonloaded Lite-On’s BitSetting tool and changed the booktype to DVD-ROM which I read creates a more DVD player compatible disc. This ended up with a worse result, a disc that was not accessible using any player nor could I access the disc via Windows Explorer.
Further, the LightScribe feature which I use constantly seems to have been adversely affected. I have ordered different DL media, Verbatim, to see
if this makes a difference but I am very concerned about the possiblity
that this firmware upgrade damaged my unit or LightScribe capabilities.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
