New problem surfaced last night.
Now it will try to burn the dvd, the red light will come on and then go out after about 10 seconds or so. Then the drive green light will flash a couple of times and I will get a could not complete error. This is only when writing DVD-R and +R. It finished writing a dvd+RW disc but it won't play in my dvd player.
What do the drive red/orange light mean. Why would it sometimes switch from red to orange in the middle of a bad burn.
The DVD+R discs are Verbatim
The DVD-R disc was a liteon test dvd
The DVD+RW discs are Fujifilm
Could this be bad DVD's
Does it make sense to upgrade my DVD firmware (GS08)? I think that is right. It said it the the right of the specs in the computer under the liteon drive. The model of the external drive is 811SX but the drive installs as 851S.
If I should do the firmware upgrade how would I do it. I am very new with dvd burners and don't want to kill it. Thanks
