I just got a brand new LH-20A1L OEM model from Newegg. Installed fine, Windows picked it up without any problems. I burned a DVD that I ripped using DVDFab onto a Dual Layer DVD using Nero, and included the disk verification at the end, and it said that it was successful.
I take the new DVD out and try to play it in my living room DVD player, and it says that it can’t find a disk (after it tries to read it for about 3 minutes). So I take it into the bedroom where I have a separate DVD player from a different company, and I get a Disk Error message on the screen.
So I tried another DVD, same brand (Verbatim). Same results. So I rebooted into Linux, burned another one using K3B, final results were the same. So this morning, I tried a different brand of DVD+R DL disks (Memorex) and ended up with the same results again.
I flashed the firmware (was running BLO3) to BLO4, and burned a single layer DVD under Windows without a problem this time.
Before I make another DL coaster, has anyone had any troubles making dual layer DVD movies using this drive??
