I have this odd and frusrtating issue with reading a blank or formated DVD. It has become a hit/miss scenario with me…
I have to try at least 6 verbatim DVD+R to get one to actually load up as blank media and show that the drive has something in it.
The verbatim DVD-RW can’t be read at all which is odd as I was able to burn something to one when I first got the drive.
It can’t read Maxell DVD-R at all I have gone through almost the whole stack and none will fully spin up the drive and register.
One the bright side… I can read CD-R media without issue lol.
I can’t even get movies to play… I suppose that is because I never set a region.
This issue happens under WInXP as well as Ubuntu 9.04.
Any help ideas on what to do would be greatly appreciated.
