I installed recently bought Optiarc AD-7191s DVD burner and tried to burn DVD+/-RW disks. It refused to burn DVD+RW (Verbatim) saying that it’s incompatible, and seemed to burn DVD-RW (also Verbatim) fine but the disk couldn’t be read in XP. Funny thing here is that what I burned on that disk was a Linux distro, and the system appeared to boot from it. (But from an installed Linux distro the disk was unreadable. Weird.) Does anybody have the same problem? Any fixes?
Also, I updated firmware to v.1.01 but unfortunately didn’t backup the original v.1.00 firmware. If I’m not able to fix the drive, I want to return it for warranty repair, but first I have to restore the old firmware. Where can I get it?
Thanks in advance!
