Yes... this, ladies and gentlemen, has got me stumped...
I upgraded the firmware to CSOP when I found that this drive would not make working backups of PS2 games... and all was working well until about 2 weeks ago...
I was burning a series of movie dvds using DVD Decrypter and then DVD Shrink, as I always have to much success.
Now here's the problem; there were 5 DVDs in total, the first 2 burnt and are playable in your everyday set top DVD players, the third disc only works for around half the film and then just stops playing, and the last 2 discs are just not recognised by any DVD player, set top, PS2 or anything.
Also this drive is no longer able to make working backups of PS2 games they skip, stall or just don't work... even simply burning MP3s onto a DVD results in DVDs that are recognisable by my computer and the data can be used on my computer but any other player cannot use the DVDs...
Does anyone no what the problem my be and how to fix it?
Is it a hardware, software or firmware issue?
Please, any help would be much appreciated as I have been scratching my head on whether just to purchase a new drive for the last few weeks as I have exhausted all other options that I know of.
I use the same media always Ritek 8x DVD-Rs, I've never had a problem with them.
I haven't changed any software settings, and I have tried resetting all defaults with no change to the discs.
