I got my writer on Saturday and updated the firmware to Herrie’s D L.
I backed up a DVD using DVDShrink and Nero 6, it burnt the disc at 8x but was a 4x Piodata disc. When I tried it in my DVD player it loaded ok but when you went into the menu and clicked to play a scene the graphics were blocky. If I stopped the player and started it again the film would play fine?
Looking at the surface of the disk it appears to have only written on half of it with a line going half way through? It looks like it has written dual layers on a single layer disc? Is this possible ?
I changed the firmware back to the Nec v1.7 and have had no problems other than writing at 4x. The dvd-r disk surface now looks full.
