This is a friends combination that is unhappy.
The burner Optorite DD0201 is at firmware 2.60E, it can burn DVD-R and DVD-RW (movies) without any errors.
The LG DVD-Rom will read/play DVD-RW but DVD-R it will hang on.
The kicker: DVD-R made with the DD0201 will play fine in DVD players and my old pioneer (114???) (It has been a long while since I have removed it)
DVD-R created in my Nec 1300A will play fine in the LG DVD-Rom.
Now I am wondering if any of you are in the middle of the same problem, licked the problem. LG says their is no firmware to update, Optorite is at the companies newest.
I would like to discount one so I can focus on just one principal. Has any of you come across a LG DVD-Rom that is OK with DVD-RW but not DVD-R?
Or is it the Optorite causing the problem writting the DVD-RW with its spec. properly but not the DVD-R?
Such a double wammy, just don’t know where to lean, Rom or Burner.
Thanks people for any help!
