I have a Lite-ON LDW-411S drive. I was having a problem with some 16x media only burning at 1x (my burner is a 4x), so I updated the firmware to the latest, and that solved the problem.
I just bought a 25 spindle of these HP 8X DVD-R from Staples, and these guys will only burn at 2.4X! I am so frustrated because my dvd burner has the latest firmware from lite on’s site.
Anyone have a clue why this is? Does this media suck, or is it just too new for my older lite on drive to properly recognize it?
I ordered a spindle of 100 TY’s… Hopefully those will work much better for me!
BTW, I have had really good luck with the HP DVD+R discs… it’s just these -r ones that are being problem children!
