Major problems with this burner so far.
First - Specs
Mobo: Asus A8V-E Deluxe
CPU: AMD Athlon 3500+
OS: Windows XP Home
Media Used: Memorex, DVD+R DL, DVD-R
So first off, I’ve tried 3 different programs, both those medias and was using a TS-H552 before.
The drive lists as a TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S183L SCSI CdRom Device in device manager. This seems weird to me, should it becoming up as an SCSI device?
Second, the programs I’ve tried are Nero 7, MagicISO and ImgBurn. All of them have failed so far, it says the burn was completed successfully but ImgBurn cannot verify the files and the burns by MagicISO and Nero 7 cannot be read using the same CD drive. When i look at the CD it just burned it also looks like it didnt burn everything, i can see only a small ring of where it was burned instead of encompassing farther out on the CD.
Third, I’ve tried the DVD+R DL and DVD-R, I’ve tried burning all different types onto them, data, video & audio, none work. My old TS-H552 worked just fine for the DVD-R.
So my question is, is drive defective? Non-compatable with my motherboard? Or is the media bad? I’m going to see if i can get some Verbatim, so which one do you suggest I use. DVD-R or DVD+R?
