Hello. I’m trying to post a new thread in the LiteOn DVD Burner / Sony DVD Burner forums but every time that I hit the Submit Message key I get a Page Can Not Be Displayed error. Furthermore, if I try to repost my failed thread I get a message from the forums telling me that I’m trying to post a duplicate thread and I need to wait 5 minutes.
I’ve been trying to post my thread for over 20 minutes now with no luck. Sorry to be such a newb but does anyone here know what could be the problem? Thank you.
Edit I’m still having problems. I simply can’t create a new thread in the LiteOn DVD Burner / Sony DVD Burner forums. I get a Page Can Not Be Displayed error. This is simply bizarre because I can create a new thread here. Perhaps there is problem with my host file or something. Damn, I really need help too
I’m going to post my proposed thread here hoping a kind moderator will move it to the proper place. Once again I’m sorry for the trouble. I’m not making a good first impression am I?
Title of thread
DVDRW SOHW-1673S won’t burn DVD+R at 4x
Hello. I have a LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1673S JS0D that simply won’t burn DVD+Rs below 6x. I want to burn at 4x because I hear you get higher quality burns at that speed. My supported write speeds for DVD+R media are 6x, 8x, 12x, and 16x. What is sorely missing from that list are 4x 2x and 1x. I’m simply stumped on what could be the problem. I have endeavored to be proactive too before coming here…
My DVD burner was a SONY DVD RW DW-D26A JYS3 until I crossed flashed it to a LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1673S JS0D just a few hours ago. I thought by doing this I could enable 4x burning. No luck. Sheesh, I just hope that my actions don’t come back to bite me in the ars in future My drive seems fine after its flashing adventure but I haven’t tried burning anything yet with it. May the DVDR drive gods bless me! lol
I’ve also confirmed that my DVD+R media supports 4x burning speed. Here is the read out from DVD Identifier…
Unique Disc Identifier: [DVD+R:MCC-004-000]

So does anyone here know what could be the problem? If so, please help. Thank you
P.S. I backed up the SONY DVD RW DW-D26A JYS3 firmware. I hear that it’s quite rare. Please let me know if you me to post it here. Thank you.
