Incompatible media

i replaced SOHW - 1693S with SHM - 165H6S. and it cant burn +rw(s). I have tried the media that worked fine in my other burners, but wont work in this one. The brands, are samsung, maxell, sky, and liteon. I dont have media codes right now.

I checked the website “http://www.liteonit.com/ODD/English/e_product/e_shm165h6s.asp” and it says it burns +rw(s).

any ideas?

What burning software have you used?

i have used Nero, DVD Decrypter (i like the verify function for iso’s), and alcohol

What does “won’t work” really mean?

lolz, that was not really a good idea to leave that part out.

The programs say “incompatible media”.

any ideas?

I contacted liteon months ago. still no responce.

The same problem is in SHW-160P6S. It can’t burn DVD+RW’s. Don’t know why… It says “incopatible media” in Nero, Alcohol, etc. I used 10 brands of DVD+RW’s. Always the same error… Tested with firmwares: P08, P09 and PV7U. :frowning:
It was definitely the last LiteOn product that I bought… My previous recorder (LDW-401S@811s) records this RW’s well… :-/ It’s time to try BenQ…

You first should update Nero!

And I would avoid such crap +RW media.

I checked Vakoss, TDK, Memorex, Philips and Verbatim too on newer Nero 7.0.8.2 (on other comp with my recorder plugged in) and on the newest Alcohol 120%. There’s the same error while writing these discs.

This sucks, of course. :frowning:

Have you tried formatting the RWs fully with DVDInfoPro?? :slight_smile:

Hmm, strange… I just installed Nero 7.0.8.2 on my comp and checked another VAKOSS (:D) DVD+RW disc (manufacturer PRODISC, not NANYA as before). I quick-erased it and now I’m recording. When it ends I post screenshot here.

EDIT:
This looks pretty shitty :wink: ,but at least I know that my drive is okay now, and I should use better discs and newest soft. :wink: Thanks for help.
PS. After 2.0 Gigs there’s a “old session” recorded on my previous drive (LDW-401S@811s).

//PS. Sorry for my English :wink:

so far i have tried your suggesstions. no luck.

i couldn’t find the edit button. so heres a new post.

newegg is sending me a replacement. which i will receive tomorrow. will post an update.

Well i got the new burner yesterday. It came with HS07 firmware. Same issue. I even went down to walmart and bought some verbatim dvdrw(s). two of each ‘plus’ and ‘minus’.

grrrrrr…

You have booktyped those +RWs???

The old ones, yes. I am pretty sure of it.
THe new ones, no. Flashed burnt.

The old ones have to be formatted completely to be usable again…
