the critical fix in version 2.2.7 -------------->
- critical fix -
Drive affected: HP DVD300 - often the external model, rarely the internal model
When : Making a copy of a DVD-VIDEO, with DVD+R(W), and the option "Change book type to DVD-ROM" is set Symptom: Drive is no longer workable, LED is blinking anytime, disconnecting/rebooting doesn't help. This is not exactly a bug, as the problem comes from the drive, and doesn't affect CopyToDVD only. We are working with HP to provide a solution that will allow zombie drives to come back to life.
the other topic is here ---->
well,as i say in my reply,ive tried quite a few brands of dvd+r.and +rws,and now,i went to my friends house and tried it with his 2 106Ds,and have been in touch with another friend ,and its the same all over.
all our drives all die,just like the HP DVD300,
BUT THE DRIVE STILL BURNS DVD-R(-RWS)
so i can only think that its something to do with ther +compatibility.
it says that its the HP hqardwares fault,but i cant see this,on mine ,as NERO 6 burns all discs fine,no probs,no coasters..
one more thing,after the failed write in copytodvd,i can still use the discs n ,say,nero6,to copy,as it seems that the write isnt even started.
anyone with any info or ideas,please reply,
or if anyone from copytodvd is reading,
can you please look into it.
