I'm trying to track down a problem I've been having recently. I have a Benq 1620 and I've had some compatibility problems with +R media on standalone players. I have a Panasonic F61 player, and my friend has a Panasonic CV52 (both are supposedly able to read +R). Here's what I've found:
All discs are bitset to -ROM automatically:
Ritek R03 +R: Plays on F61, doesn't play on CV52
CMC F01 +R: Plays on F61, doesn't play on CV52
Optodisc OR4: Doesn't play on either
MCC 004 (Verbatim): Doesn't play on either
Verbatim DVD+R DL: Plays on F61, doesn't play on CV52
Ritek DVD+R DL: Doesn't play on either
In all cases except the Ritek DL, the error/disk quality scans came up as not very bad to excellent.
All of these were burned using Nero 6.6. I'm starting to question whether my drive is going, because it didn't burn MCC 004 well at all and it's starting to coaster other media that's been fine for a lot of burns.
But I figured I'd ask here as well. Anyone had similar problems? Is it possible that Nero doesn't write all +R quite right?
PS. Just so we're clear, I'm not bashing Nero... just trying to track down a problem.
