LG 5253 + DVD-R = 'Disc Error'

vbimport

#1

Hi I have the following burner and media:

Drive

VID LITE-ON
PID DVDRW SOHW-832S
F/W Revision VS01
Date Code 2004/04/16 15:01

Disc

Disc Type DVD-R
Book Type DVD-R
Manufacturer RiTEK Corporation
Media ID RITEKG05

Ideally I would like to play a movie burned to one of these discs on my faithfull and not particularly old LG 5253 player.

My player plays VCDs and is multiregion happily enough but when I burnt a home movie using the above burner/disc combo and ArcSoft Showbiz (which came with the burner) all I get to see is a nasty disc error message after a minute of disc spinning at what sounds like warp speed.

Any suggestions please?

Thanks

T

…and I forgot to mention that the disc I burned works on a friends player OK.

The firmware seems to be VS01. Try VS0A even if it doesn’t make any difference.
