I traid a few discs,the same Kind DVD-R and the same thing. like I said I used those before and with no problem, But now I have that problem.

Thanx Quakester 2000 ,Let me tray that, the strange thing is , with a DVD- R/W it works, it ask me if I want to Quick Format or fast format, and I formated a DVD-R/W and it works, I have a problem with the DVD-R only, could the dust steal be the problem ?

Thenx for you time and Help.

The Problem with LiteON recorders is that the Optical Pickup used in the optical drives isnt as high quality as their pc counterparts. This is one of the reasons LiteON got out of the DVD recorder market because they had a lot of returns due to the optical drives failing.

How long have you had the unit (In europe its two year warranty)

Is it in a dusty area / Non ventilated area / Dont Have things sitting on top of the unit as it stops heat escaping / Make sure vents clear.

Are you using good quality discs / Tried different make

Use DVD cleaner

Tyhanx again, Is less than a yera , and the warranty is for a year, I think I have time dteal, And I have it on top of my TV, Is a Little dusty, I use to clean it every two days, I don’t have nothing on top of it, and has a good vent, I use SONY DVD’s, , I’m Buying a DVD cleaner , to see if that could make any diference.

Thanx I apreciate your help and your time.
PS: Is it a good brand SONY for DVD’s should I buy DVD+ or the DVD- is good, ?

I have the 5115 and you’ll find it works better with +R & +RW media. At least it works better for me. Make sure your firmware is up to date too. Good Luck and let us know how you make out.
