[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On Slim Tray-type 8x 4x 8x 4x DVDRW Drive. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have this Slimtype DS8A1H in a HP DV2910US bought late 2008.
With Maxell 16X DVD-R media ProdiscF02 type, burns are smooth and error free every time.
With TDK branded DVD-R TTH02 or Verbatim branded DVD+R MCC/004, the burns complete successfully, and are read without any errors, but the recorded data is corrupted as verified with md5sum on the files! I have so far been unable to burn a single TDK or Verbatim disc without errors, but every Maxell is fine.
The firmware is WH66 and I am using Ubuntu 8.10. Would I be likely to solve this problem through firmware hacking?
