DVDRW DRW 1S41 and some newbie questions

Hello im new in this forum…
im Lou, 18M
and i need help with my DVD burner… now the problem…
my burner says DVDRW DRW 1S41 on it…
is this a 4kus or a liteon?
the problem is that it cant detect some CDR’s when I want to burn on them…
I particularly want to know about its compatability with the verbatim CD-RW…
i was wondering why it doesnt detect this even if the CD-RW is a branded one…
the burner detects other generic DVD’s but not a branded Verbatim?
I just dont understand it…
Another thing… I usually burn .avi’s on my DVD’s…
I just want your opinion if this burner is good for that…

I am thinking of buying a new burner…
Do you have any suggestions on what burner is best for this burning .avi’s?
I also cant afford anything super expensive so… please take into consideration budget… :wink:

EDIT: I also would like to add that I haven’t upgraded drivers for this burner…
Can this be the problem? Where and what driver upgrade should i get then?

It’s likely the Verbatim discs don’t work well with your 4KUS drive because the firmware (that contains writing strategies for burning discs) is out of date. You can find an upgrade firmware for your drive here.
