I have a Sony DW-D18A (Rebadged Lite-On SOHW-832S) And some Memorex 4x DVD-R media that this drive refuses to see. I’ve tried searching the forums here and other places, and have tried pretty much every firmware out there that was mentioned. Note that it has no problem reading pressed DVDs, and works just fine for CDs. I’ve not tried +R media because I don’t want to go to Fry’s and spend 40$ on a stack of +R when I have all these -R discs here.
Anyone have any ideas? If you have any questions, just ask and I’ll tell you what I know. Also, this is my first post here, so be nice, please. =)
