My SOHD-167T does not read DVD Media IDs and does not recognize RITEKG04

Hi folks, I am new in this forum.
Maybe someone of you could guide me…
My SOHD-167T does not read DVD Media IDs and does not recognize RITEKG04 DVD-R.

Maybe I dreamed but I though my Lite-on 167T read the Media ID in the past when using Kprobe. Then I bough some RITEKG04, I burned in an external SONY 8X writer and the burned DVDs are ok for all my players buth not for my 167T.

I installed a new Windows XP on my computer and I still have the same.

I sent a message to Lite-on support, they asked me to upgrade to the latest firmware, because the firmware was for recognizing some new media. I upgraded ok but, the RITEKG04 still are not recognized.

Using Isoburner with the 167T and the RITEKG04 it says it can not read PVD Primary Volume Descriptor.

Does the 167T or other Lite-on players read Media ID information or not?
Could anyone guess the where the problem is?

No, DVD-ROM drives do not usually read the media ID

I think what he means is kprobe shows the media ID on the bottom of the window. It says detecting media type and then like (20) RicohjpnR01 [ricoh company limited]… Driver: SPTI…

Yea I have noticed on some media it does not show this… But if you go to disk info on the menu, it also does not show the media id and manufacturer… Means the disk is toasted… But the data might still be redable…
