I’d like to start off by saying that I’ve searched and I have heard a MILLION times that Ritek media is “crap” and should never be used. Also, I’d like to preempt any responses to Lite-On burners being terrible, etc. I know all this and I’ve heard it a million times before.
Anyway, I have a few Ritek 4x discs that I’d burned with my old burner (Lite-On 811S) that cannot be read by my Pioneer DVR-110D (flashed with the latest firmware - 1.41). My Pioneer just shows the drive as being empty as if the discs were blank.
These discs play fine in both my standalone DVD Player and my Xbox and worked fine with my old burner.
I also have some Ritek 8x media that works fine in my Pioneer drive.
Does anyone have any advice about what to try with this. Again, I know that Ritek is “crap” and I’ve been hearing it for years but, quite frankly, I’ve never experienced a single problem using this media in 3 years, having burned DVD backups, backup data, etc. on a number of different burners, standalone players and video game consoles.
Thanks in advance for any help!
