Hello to everyone.
Since I did a search and found nothing on the issue, I am posting a new thread.
I recently bought a Samsung SH-S203B SATA DVD-Writer.
I also did patch with the latest official firmware.
It is performing well on all media except DVD+RW.
I use both Windows and Linux so all of the following applications are used from time to time to write media:
- Nero 8.x latest (Windows)
- ImgBurn latest (Windows)
- k3b latest (Linux)
The problem is that from time to time when I insert recorded DVD+RW media from the DVD Writer, into my standalone DVD/DivX Player it says “No Disk”.
However, the DVD Writer itself and my DVD-ROM (a Plextor PX-130A) can always read this media.
This happens randomly - at least I haven’t been able to find a pattern and isolate the problem.
I suspect that the Samsung does not always finalise the DVD+RW media properly.
Your help would be greatly appreciated as I am at a loss. What should I do?
Some additional data that might help you:
- chipset and SATA-2 disk controller -> nVidia nForce4-SLI
- standalone DVD/DivX Player -> Philips DVP-3040 (Mediatek MT-1389)
I would also like to point out that I never had that problem in the past with my previous DVD Writers (Plextor PX-708A, NEC-3540A, NEC-4571A).
DVD+RW media used are TDK 3.3x-8x speed.
Once again, this happens only on DVD+RW media. On DVD+R media (TY ceramic 1x-20x) and DVD+R-DL (Ricoh 8x) that I also use, everything is fine.
Thank you in advance for your time.
