Hi guys, I’ve purchase a Sony DRU 540A and have been encountering a problem and have a couple of questions.
The error I would receive while burning with Nero 6 is “focus or tracking error.” What does this mean?
I’ve done some research and found that my Sony is not really a Sony and that it is an Optorite ( :a ). An DD1203, I believe. Optorite has a new firmware while Sony does not. Are the two not exactly alike? Would it be safe to update my drive with Optorite’s firmware? Is there a program that could save my current firmware?
I’ve also noticed that these DVD burners generate a fair amount of heat. Could the heat be a part of the problem? I’ve been burning with an open case and a running fan and yet I continue to encounter that error with Nero.
One more thing, some of the error free runs would have a jerky playback in my DVD players, but would work perfectly fine with my computer. Out of the 20 or so burns I have only gotten 4 to work right without any problems.
Some computer info:
PIII 866 over clocked to 975
384 megs of RAM PC133
Using TDK 4x DVD+R
Any bit of help would be greatly appreciated.
