Hi to all,
great site you have here
Anyway, I am from beautiful Adelaide in South Australia and am studying science at uni
I have up until recently had no systemic problems burning whatsoever, with any burner or media combination. Until now...
I have a pack of 50 CMC MAG-E01-000 4.7GB DVD+R discs (used DVD identifier) that have burned fine in my Samsung TS-H552U burner and read fine in my LiteOn JLMS XJ-HD165H up until recently. I haven't burnt a dvd in a few weeks and now when I put any of the discs from the same pack in either drive, windows explorer sees them as a CD with no capacity, and any other software I like (Nero) tells me to insert a larger capacity disc, even for a 3GB burn, i.e. I can't burn them anymore, they are not being recognised! This is really weird that it's both dvd-burner and reader, so I think it must be software or OS(Windows XP Pro SP2)-related.
Both drives read the same discs that I burnt previously ok still. CD's are ok too.
Any advice muchly appreciated.
