I purchased a Liteon SOHW-832S DVDRW unit over a NEC 2510a for use under Windows XP (SP2) and Nero Burn Express. Burning DVDRs at 4x have been horrible – the disc shows its folders but CDCheck or copying files off it produce CRC errors. You’d think the drive which created it would be able to read it. Burning at 2x has its problems – There are no CRC errors when played with the 832s but using the DVDR in a different DVDROM (ie. Hitachi GD-7500 DVDRom) produces CRC errors.
Whats going on? I’m using the latest official firmware from Liteon (VS0B). Perhaps theres something wrong with the DVDR capabilites of the drive? It was able to produce a CDR at 40x perfectly. Maybe it has something to do with the DVDR media I’m using (generic bulk - unknown brand). Can you suggest available, affordable bulk DVDRs to purchase which will function at 4x bruning?
I’m burning Data and planning on Audio.
