LDW 811S won’t burn Memorex DVD+R 8X



I get an error when I try to burn these Memorex dvd+r 8x. I have Windows XP sp2 and just updated Nero from 6.3 to 6.6. The firmware is HS0K. Should I upgrade the firmware? I was at the Liteon site and there were such negative comments about the drive working right or at all after flashing to HS0R.

Smart-Burn Media check gives the following info.
Disc Type = DVD+R (Single Layer)
Disc MID = 50 52 4F 44 49 53 43 00 (PRODISC.)
Disc TID = 52 30 33 (R03)
Nominal Capacity = 4.38GB
Manufacturer Maybe = Prodisc Technology Inc.
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 8.0X (Write)



get omnipatcher from the liteon tools sticky then load your HSOK apply recomended media tweeks save firmware then flash your drive.


Thank you. I’ll give it a try.


Can I use the pre-patched firmware instead?
