New OEM drive won't burn DVD-R



I’ve recently puchased a Sony OEM AW-G170A drive but it wont burn any DVD-R discs even though its supposed to. I’ve tried to use liggy & dee’s NEC Drive Converter to change the internal drive identification but the field boxes are blank. Can anyone help?


My drive converter does not support Optiarc Drives and I highly doubt there is a benefit in adding support for these drives.


Is there a way to make dvd-r discs compatible with this drive?


You might have to use better media. But without knowing details what media you’re using and what exactly you’re trying to do (e.g. software) we probably won’t be able to help you much.
