My philips sdvd8431 problem(s)

Hi,
On my laptop i have a philips sdvd8431 with lx43 firmware.
A couple of weeks ago it was burning iso’s fine to DVD-R disks.
Today i wanted to burn a DVD+R DL but when i try to burn it nero gives me an illegal disk error and alcohol 120% gave me an invalid media error.
Also when i insert a TDK DVD-R, or any other DVD it says that there is 0 bytes free and 0 bytes total space on the disks.
Is there any way i can change the drive to burn DVD+R DL?

Thanks, Svpam.

welcome to the forums

if the drive can’t burn to DL, theres no way to change it.

[B]EDIT[/B]; i can see now that it can burn to DL.

what brand of DL disc’s are you using?

Also when i insert a TDK DVD-R, or any other DVD it says that there is 0 bytes free and 0 bytes total space on the disks.

this is because it’s a blank, they all will show this

Thanks for the reply.
I was using the cheapest media i could find, Ridisc DVD+R DL.
The disks burn fine on my NEC drive on my desktop.

sorry, but thats pretty crap media, the best DL disc’s just now are a few pound dearer :iagree:

Verbatim +R DL :bow:

Alright ill try get some and see if thats my problem.
Thanks
