Hello - I wonder if someone can help or comment on my problem. I am fairly clueless at this DVD burning lark.
Basically the problem is this. I just bought (today) a new LG DR-4912 DVD recorder to go with my home cinema setup. I’m very pleased with it, apart from one thing: It refuses to play any DVD+R’s burned on my PX-716A
I have only tried one type of disk - that’s all I have. These are Verbatim DataLifePlus 4x (MCC 002’s), which the Plextor burns perfectly at 8x. Excellent quality burn with very low error counts. Reads perfectly in the Plextor drive.
But these just won’t play AT ALL in the LG DVD player. The strange thing is, they will play perfectly in my other DVD player (Tag McLaren). And also strange - the LG will play the same Verbatim Datalifeplus disks that I burned on an old Optorite DVD burner. So its not that the LG has a problem with the DataLife 4x disks - only those burned using the Plextor drive.
I have tried 1.05 and 1.06 firmware, but it made no difference.
Does anyone know why this is happening? And how to fix it? Or is it just “one of those things” and I should just try some different media and give up with the Verbatims. (Trouble is, I have a lot of them!)
Thanks very much
