Two days ago I got my first DVD writer LDW-451S and I am having some problems I can’t resolve myself.
I installed the software which comes wih the drive Sonic MyDVD + DVD XCopy, and I already have Nero 6. I went to the Liteon’s web site, downloaded and flased the firmware to the latest version SB7.
Now, for the issues. I burned one Maxell DVD-R using Nero and the process completed without problems. However when I try to read the disk I am getting the following error:
“DLA cannot use this blank media until it has been formatted. Would you like to format this media now?”
The funny thing is that the disk reads OK (after bunch of funny noises) on my DVD-ROM drive which is installed on the same machine. I am running XP Professional.
The second problem is that the video DVD-RW I’ve burned using the Sonic MyDVD can’t play on my Panasonic DVD-RV31, even the player is reported to play the media according to vcdhelp.com
Any help is greately appreciated. Sorry for the long post.
