Hope someone could help me…
I recently burnt DVD-R’s with my Liteon 851S and it appears they won’t play on my dvd player NOR on my pc drive, just as if the finalization process didn’t succeed, though I didn’t get any error messages.
I tried 2 different brands: Princo (id code: Princo) and Ridisc (Ritek G04 dye) single layer 4x. These won’t work and I’m sure my dvd player plays Princo dvd-R’s.
The strange thing is that both DVD Speed and DVD Infopro will recognize the media as being blank and, most amazing, the SmartBurn tool from Liteon will notice that nominal capacity of these 2 dvd-R’s is 7.82 GB!! (see below):
Drive Type = DVD DUAL
Disc Type = DVD-R (Single Layer)
Disc MID = 50 52 49 4E 43 4F (PRINCO)
Disc TID = 00 00 00 00 00 00 (…)
Nominal Capacity = 7.82GB
Manufacturer Maybe = Princo Corporation
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 4.0X (Write)
So I guess there is a problem and i wish i could solve it in order not to throw away the 50 dvd’s i bought.
Thanks for your help!
