Samsung sm-352b read problem

hi, I’ve a combo cdrw/dvd samsung SM-352B and also have an MSI dvd-rw DR4-A, the problem is that the samsung combo can’t read/recognize data dvds burned with the MSI, otherwise these dvds can be read in the MSI perfectly.

Some info:

SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SM-352B (EXP) Firmware T803
ATAPI DVD DUAL 4XMAX (Model DR4-A) Firmware 2.17

Nero Burning Rom (used in nero startsmart mode for burn “data dvds” & “mp3 dvds”)

Media used for burning
Verbatim DVD+R 8X

Info about the media after being burned (not recognized by the samsung drive):

Any idea of how to solve this, the problem could be in one of the drives? if it’s in one drive the update of the firmware can fix this? could be nero? or maybe the media? (although never had problem with verbatim cds/dvds)

thanks in advnace for any help

This version of Nero is obsolete, also search for an firmware update.

Hi and thanks for reply… I know that nero v7 is out but just wondering if updating to this version will changes something, did you experiment any improvement regarding to dvd compatibility in nero v7? Ohterwise there are available new firmwares for both drives (T809 for msi & v2.60 for samsung drive) that in last case I’ll use but what I want to know is anybody have a any clue of where could be the problem (that’s why I post the media information), I would like to go directly to the issue instead update all to then realize that nothing changed.

just updated the firmware of the samsung drive and now can play those data/mp3 dvds, there is no need to update the rest for the moment, thanx :smiley:

In case you want update Nero, I wouldn’t recommend Nero 7 (yet).

Nero 6 is actually better, version is latest.
