[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-1693S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Ok, I have a Verbatim DVD-R that I wrote to about a month ago. I was going through and needed to get some info off it, and it constantly is being seen as either Blank (Writer drives) or bad/not there (readers).
Now then, I have disks burned over a year ago with no problems, and other disks from this same batch with no problems. I think I hit a bad on in the batch, and this is the first Verbatim disk I had go bad. (Been using about 2 years now)
I believe the TOC is either corrupt, or faded, but I can't seem to get anything to read past it either. I have tried a number of programs to read the disk, but I have had no luck what so ever. Any help is greatly appreciated, and all info about the system and storage is below.
Lite-On SOHW-1693S (Same drive that the disk was written to)
Have tried these readers â€“ Asus E616A2, Xbox 360 DVD drive, and the Xbox 360 HD-DVD add-on.
Disks are kept in cake boxes, properly closed. (The disks are not needed often.) All boxes have either a empty clear plastic disk or a bad CD at the bottom. There are no scratches, dust, or markings on the problem disk, or any other disks. Disks are handled on the edges at all times.
