Please can anybody help me. This problem has suddenly arisen.
My DVD drive is a TSSTCorp H552D-HP06 (hewlett Packard OEM not supported by Toshiba)
All of a sudden my DVD drive doesnt recognise the full capacity of certain disks - namely UME01 unbranded disks. i have used these disks by the hundred before without a problem.
When i insert the disk ready for burning al my burning programs , such as Nero, Ultra Iso, WinAVI etc tell me that this 4.7gb DVD-R has only a capacity of 1.38GB (which is the same as a Mini DVD Disk)
The problem does not happen when i insert a DVD-RW or another type of unbranded DVD-R disk.
As i said - i have used this particular brand of disk hundreds of time before without a problem.
could it be a software setting/firmware problem? As i know its not a hardware problem as other disks burn without a problem.
