I am hoping you guys can help me out here. Before getting my laptop, I had a desktop with a Pioneer A06 DVD plus/minus burner. Worked fine, no problems. I used DVDXCOPY express and Nero as my main burning apps. Well, that PC has been sold and replaced with a laptop. I have an Averatec 6100HS. In this laptop is a Slimtype DVDRW SDW-431S. I cannot burn any DVD that has video…data dvd’s seem fine. When I either burn a DVD with XCOPY Express, the video is choppy and pixilated when played in a DVD player. I tried a home video file with Nero and I get the same result. Also, I have tried 3 different types of Media…same result.
I almost flashed my firmware for the drive off of Liteon’s site, but I read here first that that firmware is for the external verison of that drive.
So does anyone have any ideas? I have never had a problem in the past. I am using Sony DVD-R, BenQ DVD-R, Otpidisc DVD-R. Also, I have tried burning at all different speeds.
Media?? Burner?? Laptop?? Any firmware upgrades for the drive?
BTW, the laptop is a P4 3 GHZ HT, ATI 9600 and 512 MB RAM.
Any help would be APPRECIATED!!!
