Should my Toshiba SD-R2102 Play DVD+R Media?

I have a lot of my movies backed up onto DVD+R Media and they play fine on all of my DVD players at home and my other DVD drive in my Laptop.

I recently purchased a Toshiba SD-R2102 Drive from ebay and was disappointed to find that it will not play my DVD+R movies. It doesn’t even recognize there is a disc in the drive when I got into my computer if I put in a DVD+R.

Is it possible a firmware update could take care of this or is the drive flat out not compatible with DVD+R discs?

Thanks for any help or advice you can give me.

i had this prob when i first got my dvd writer, Liteon. I was burning to dvd+r but when i went to play em, it didnt recognize it…a firmware update done the trick…It does read dvd+R right?sasarchiver

Acutally, It is only a DVD reader not a burner. It won’t play DVD+r. I wonder if a firmware update will make it read DVD+r
