Hi all - first post, and immediately with a weird problem sigh.
I got my SH-S203B two months ago, burned single layer +R’s and CDs - everything’s working like a charm so far (haven’t tried DL DVD+R so far).
There were no problems on the reading front, either - it even read some really old scratched CD-R’s (must be 6+ years old, I’d wager).
Today I put in some DVD+RWs I burned some time ago on a NEC 1300A (bitset to DVD-ROM, although I don’t think that should matter), and the drive won’t recognize them at all - it just keeps spinning up and slowing down continuously. The media play all right in my standalone DVD-Player, they are two different brands, although I can obviously not access the disc ID under XP.
Again - other discs burned with the old NEC work just fine.
