O.k. so i am having a bit of trouble with media choice and use.
I have an NEC-ND2500A v1.06 and a Lite-On DVD-ROM LTD-165H VCH0E
Initially i was using Datasafe 4X DVD-R (Ritek G04) and had no problems.
For my next set of blanks i got some of those again but thought i'd try some Bulkpaq Orange 4X DVD-R, as they were cheap an on offer. I searched on here and found that someone else had used them with sucess with my writer.
I burnt my first PS2 backup and DVD-Video backup with them no probs (using Recordnow Deluxe v6.5.0).
Now today i burnt another DVD-Video disc but using DVD-Decrypter. 4X burn went o.k.
BUT the disc will not play in the DVD-ROM drive (plays about 20 secs in PowerDVD and just resets). Plays o.k. in my standalone DVD player (Pioneer DV-350) but not sure it likes jumping around via the chapter menu too much.
Plays fine in the NEC though.
Using Nero Scandisc it scans all readable in the NEC, but all unreadable in the Lite-ON.
Using the K-Probe tool read at 4X looks o.k. (though not sure what i'm really looking for to be honest).
So is the disc o.k. but my Lite-On just being silly.
Software problem (only one i've burnt so far in DVDDecrypter).
Just a bad blank?
Which scanning program is right?
Just wondering if there's something in particular or i should just take it as a learning experience and not use the blanks again?
