LiteOn SOHW-832S CG5M not DVD-R DL compatible?

hi guys ^^

I just flashed my Sony DVD RW DW-U18A drive with the LiteOn SOHW-832S CG5M firmware in order to read and write on dual layer dvd’s.

I tried to use Verbatim DVD-R DL discs but even after flashing the drive imgburn doesn’t detect the disc.

could it be possible that the LiteOn SOHW-832S CG5M firmware only supports DVD+R DL??

and if that’s true is there any other possibility to make my Sony DVD RW DW-U18A drive capable to read/write on DVD-R DL discs??

THX in advance for your help :slight_smile:

As Far As I Can Remeber (AFAICR), the type of burner you are using doesn’t support minus double layer media (-R9) by design.
.
Time to upgrade your burner, or use +R9 Verbatim MKM001 media. :flower:
