Hello All; I made a data DVD+R (TDK 4X DVD+R media) CD using Nero 6.6.12 and my old Memorex DVD burner. Then I upgraded my burner to LG GSA-4163BK . LG does not read my DVD+R cd. But it does read and write DVD+RW or CD-RW. Anybody any idea what the problem might be ?? Is that Nero , burner or the way I burned the DVD or TDK ?? Thanks a lot for any help. Note: 1) Even Memorex itself does not read the DVD+R cd I made. 2) It is very weird that my friend s DVD-ROM drive can read this DVD+R cd.
If the disc is not read by other drives there is a chance that it had degraded and died.
But the thing is that the disc can be read by DVD-ROM drives ( I tried LG and AOpen DVD-ROM, both drives can read this disc) So it is kind of difficult to say that it had degraded and died.
Sorry to say it, but it definately sounds like a media quality issue. Some DVD burners are good readers, but most are only fair readers. Their main job is to burn... Try to have someone read it in a good DVD reader drive (non-burner).
