I have written some AVI files(as Data) to a DVD-R with an Artec DVD-RW - just bought.
My DVD-Rom(SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-616T) - which Nero’s Drive info tool says CAN read DVD-R (& Samsung says it can as well) - isn’t recognizing the media.
If I try to open the DVD contents in Windows Explorer, windows says
"Disk is not formatted
Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with Windows."
Also the name of the drive changes from ‘DVD Drive’ to ‘CD Drive’ when the media is inserted.
I used Nero v184.108.40.206 to burn the media - which CAN be read on my DVD-RW.
DVD-Rom = SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-616T (Firmware v = F306 - from Samsung site)
DVD-RW = VOM-12E48X (Artec)
DVD media = Datawrite yellow (v2) DVD-R
PS: a CD with the media on CAN be read by both.
Anyone any ideas, please?
