Got a new 5005 yesterday, and it’s been flashed to the official 1091 firmware. I’ve tried making plain old DVD recordings on the included +RW disc, as well as a Maxell +RW I bought today.
Neither one of them will work in any machine other than the LiteON. I get the title menu on all the stand-alone machines I have, but the disc won’t play beyond that.
Even putting it into my Sony DVD-ROM drive (DRU-500A with latest firmware) on my XP PC, it’s unreadable. If I run DVD-Decrypter, it will recognize the disc but it says that “Possible Structure Protection Found!” Windows Explorer simply says “Please insert a disc into drive D:” when I try to view the +RW disc made in the LiteON.
I’ve tried finalizing the disc (even though I’m not supposed to have to do this) but it makes no difference.
What’s going on? Is it the media? I would think the supplied disc would be compatible. I’ve had good luck with +R media so far, but the +RW doesn’t seem to work worth a turd.
