[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SHW-160P6S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I just installed a fresh copy of Windows XP pro on my comp. Before I formatted my harddrive all of my DVD-Rs worked fine. Now ONLY my dvd-r’s work and my SONY DVD+R rw, windows says, are all blank. I’m unsing nero 7. I had this same problem many many years ago and just took it as a loss and moved on. Now however, I have quite a few programs I need on various dvds. I reinstalled windows twice just to make sure it wasn’t a bad install or something like wierd like that. I have installed windows before and didn’t have this problem. why now? I even tried a firmware update on my DVD drive. Still the same result. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Welcome to the Forum.
Perchance you are you using any Packet Writing software programs similar to InCD, DLA, and/or Drag To Disc when writing Data to your DVD+R RW Media disks? If so it should be noted that ALL Packet Writing software programs are notorious for problematic performance.
Not that I’m aware of. I used the “make a data DVD” to burn. I haven’t had any trouble until now. I can still log on to an older install of windows on a nother one of my drives and they work fine there too. I’ll go check out whats all installed under that os. but, its a real mess in there. Thanks for the reply.
