First off, a warm hello to all - I’m new here and truly looking forward to be part of the community.
I need some help with a problem I’ve been having. I’ve looked just about everywhere but couldn’t find anything helpful - hopefully I’ll find it here.
I have an Optorite DD1601 that I use with Nero v.184.108.40.206. I’ve tried burning multisession DVD-Rs using a variety of options (ISO only, UDF only, ISO/UDF Bridge, Open disc, Finalized disc, etc.) and get mixed results. Almost always, I can only read one session off the disc even on the drive that burned it. On my Samsung DVD-ROM, only the disc that I’ve left open can be read. All those that I’ve finalized cannot. Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?
Even the Plextor I have at work has had minimal success (if any) reading these discs. However, I have no problems creating/reading a DAO disc.
Any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong or perhaps something important I may have missed in creating these multisession discs?
Needless to say, I have coastered many a DVD-R and the entire experience has been nothing short of maddening.
I appreciate any help you can throw my way.
