This is a new drive for me to replace my older Ricoh, (which was a good burner but would only burn DVD+R). I am currently having problems with my Lite On LDW-851S burning on DVD-R discs by getting about 6 or so slight and quick ‘freeze-ups’ per movie. They are only momentary and then the DVD continues to play. I use Ritek media and have had all perfect burns using DVD+R with my deceased Ricoh.
I have heard that the Lite On burner does not really like DVD-R? Is this the case? AT first I thought that burning to DVD-R @ 4x may be the cause, so I slowed to 2x with little to no improvement.
Can anybody help please? I have no real idea what version firmware I am using btw and am unsure how to find out. I guess it could always be my DVD player but up until I got the Lite On, everything was fine.
