Getting the ASUS DRW1608P3 to burn DVD-R

The past week i have been putting all my spare time into trying to get this driver to burn DVD-R read a good few sites and installed god knows what programs. Without getting anywhere sadly.

Tried flashing it to a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111 1,06 but to no avail. ImageBurn nor Nero DiscSpeed allow me to set it to DVD-R.

It should be possible as i’ve read but im really out of ideas or sites to read.

If anyone could shed some light on this i’d be a very happy man.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Post a burnlog from this DRIVE.
