I recently bought a Lite-on LDW-851s drive and decided to burn a few dvd-r. I first used TDKgo2 media and DvdShrink and Nero to burn them. They play on the lite-on drive but wonâ€™t play properly on my Panasonic RV32 dvd player, pixelization is a big issue. Then I updated the drive firmware to GSOH and got few Ritek Ridata, Prodisc, Optodisc, and DvdPro dvd-r media. They all play right on the lite-on drive. I did some test with Kprobe and they show low PI/PO errors, but none of them would play right on the Panasonic. Two of them are not recognized at all, the rest of them play with pixelization problems. I think that the Panasonic RV32 player is very picky. I read in the users manual that it would play dvd-r recorded by a Panasonic dvd recorder.
I have not tried any dvd+r and changing the book type yet. I donâ€™t think that would help.
Do I need a new dvd-rw drive or a new dvd player? I think that my lite-on drive is good and my dvd player is good but they are just not compatible.
Does anybody have any suggestion?
