I just upgraded my faboulus DR8-A from 1.30D to 1.40D. I must say my drive was going great with 1.30D but i wanted to get better CD support. And so i did, i got perfect support mostly for all my CDs. I could actually burn them at 40 with no problem whatsoever.
But then, all the DvD-Rs that i had burnt before, cannot actually be read by the drive anymore.The +Rs are still read ok and perfect, but no with the -R. What before used to be a no problem situation, now has become in a pain in the ass.
I even tried in another computer, with an old Pioneer DvDrom drive, and it read the -Rs perfectly and with no problems.
So i wonder, if they did something strange in this firmware update. I must, repeat, i have no problems using +R and i burnt 8x always no problem, but while before i could use -R, i can't now.
If somebody could actually help me on this i'd appreciatte it, even though I fear is more a firmware problem and i'll need another firmware upgrade to fix it, and if we follow the length of time taken before for firmware releases, i think it'll take me another 3 months waiting.
If anybody else have any other problems, please post them here.
