I have a problem with the
QSI DVD±RW SDW-082
Internal DVD-Dual drive (DVD+/-RW) in my new Acer TM 4002WLMI laptop.
The problem I have is that 20% of the DVD-R’s I burn are not readable on my laptop. The burn process is always completed successfully according to the software but then there is nothing on it. The WEIRD thing is that these burnt DVD’s work on other computers!!! I would expect it the other way around if there was a problem.
I tried different softwares on Windows and on Linux. I also tried different media and sticked to brand name products like Maxell (aka Taiyo Yuden, TYG01).
Would it help to upgrade the firmware if available or should I insist on a new drive? I already took the laptop to the store where I bought it. But the sample that was burnt there worked out:a
Any help and advice would be very much appreciated!
