[QUOTE=xallamec;2001223]The info about the drive is in the txt file attached. The dvd + i try to copy is a tdk dvd+r 8x dl
the dvd i try to burn is a platinum dl dvd+r 8.5gb.
Some times the drive recognize the tdk dvd and iÂ´ve been able to make a iso and a mdf image(one with nero another with alcohol)…but in major cases it just donÂ´t recognize it. I have 2 lg dvd writers and none of them do the job. For 2 times the drive has reconized the empty dvd and acohol start burning, but it gives a write error and stoped. In 100 attempts it only recognize the blank dvd twice.
IÂ´ve used a cleaning dvd, and i can say that the device has been used only a few times, because i have more computers and rarely use this to burn normal dvds.
I tried to connect the device as the primary idle master alone, with another as slave, as a secondary idle master, as a slave, etc,etc…
Sorry about my poor inglish, hope someone can help.[/QUOTE]
I would agree with what Alan said. Platinum aren’t the best discs anyway, and certainly not for DL media.
As for the drive not recognising the TDK +R DL for reading, I would suggest it’s because the drive doesn’t like them - my own 4163B was a very picky reader if the media wasn’t very good.
I would recommend Verbatim 2.4x +R DL, those should do the job nicely with that drive.
