So… I have an Acer TravelMate 4072WLMi with a LiteOn (i guess?) dvd-burner. It’s supposed to handle all kinds of media and after having no trouble with dvd+rw for a while i wanted to try “the original” dvd-rw. Verbatim 6x that is. Couldn’t burn it at either 6x, 4x, or 2x without the PC and burner getting completely locked (but I could move the mouse etc…)
Anyway, after having to reboot the PC manually to be able to try all the different speeds I then tried to use a Memorex dvd+rw at 2,4x. It seemed to work just fine, and it completed just like all other disks I burn. When I wanted to test if it would run on the computer it said “EMPTY DISK” and I saw the regular choices of what I’d like to do with the “empty” disk.
…Soooooo, I tried to play the film on my Denon DVD-1400, but it started to make very weird mechanical noises (clonking) and then it died. The weirdest thing is that I can’t seem to start it again! It has been a completely flawless DVD player for some years now. How could it just completely die after inserting a faulty dvd+rw?
Thank you for your time…
