Burner “LDW-811s”. Firmware “HS0K”. Media (markings on package):
“4.7GB General Purpose 8x DVD-R”
“8x 4,7GB DVD-R”
Running Nero Express. ‘Simulation’ fails at 2.4 speed. Manual select speed 2.0 ‘simulation’ succeds.
Experiences with this media and LDW-811s ?
Does a ‘simulation’ show anything about the quality of the media ?
I mean since it doesn’t actually write …
Could a firmware upgrade help ? (latest is “HS0R”, “HS0K” is 1.5 year old ca).
Noticed this thread “What DVD media should I use with my LiteOn DVD burner?”
“Just stay away from the shady junk media types/brands like Princo, “Great Quality”, Matrix, Sonic, Datawrite Yellow/Reds and you will be fine.”
It doesn’t explicitly state “Datawrite Grey” …
I know I need to RTFM, ie research this forum. I wish selecting media wasn’t an art and a science, I wish it would just ‘work’ <sigh>.
So I’m asking for a simple answer first, if there is one, like upgrading firmware.
I did google ‘Datawrite Grey’ and got only positive comments. Should have googled the combination of LDW-811s and Datawrite Grey.
