I recently picked up a Powerfile C200 CD/DVD changer in order to have reasonably quick (read: lazy) access to data that has been burned to CD/DVD. All of my burned CD’s can be read without incident, but not a single data DVD is readable by either of the two internal DVD drives.
At this point, my buest guess is that the age of the unit (5+ years) puts it at a 1x speed drive and the DVD’s themselves were burned with an 8x Cyberhome dual format DVD burner. In other modern DVD drives, the data on the disc is perfectly accessible, but not through the Powerfile’s two Toshiba brand internal DVD drives. That being said, am I off track in thinking that the speed rating has anything to do with the disc readability on the older drives? Is there anything I can even do about it if that is the case? A firmware upgrade? Making a wish?
Any information is appreciated,
