New to the forums please be patient with me. I just bought and installed a SHW-1635S (Sony branded OEM) on a P2.8ghz with 512mb ram, WinXP SP2. I have it attached via Ultra-ATA (cable select) along with a 180gb HD on the same cable. I have the latest firmware YS0N flashed on the drive as well.
The drive reads dvds fine, no issues there.
When I try to burn movies with Nero 6.06 they are not compatible with my dvd player. The movie .vob files are stored on the 180gb drive. My dvd player has always been compatible with previous dvd-r burned movies. This is the frist time I have had problems with this dvd player not being able to read the disc. It just says “Loading…” on the screen. I try the same dvd burn on the PC and it works fine. I do not know what brand of media I am using. It is 4x DVD-R media.
I have tried different settings in Nero but nothing seems to help. Please let me know if you have any tips.
