Some problems with DW-D22A

Well, I recently got this dvd-rw drive and so far its worked just fine.

I can burn CD’s, DVD’s (only tried -R), read what I burn, watch movies, etc…

But here is the problem I have, my friend also has a dvd burner, he burnt me a datadisc (with nero6, same version I have [exact same version]), and I cannot read the discs, they wont even spin up at all. I try the disc in my laptop (which is just a dvdrom) and his computer and it reads just fine.

So, we thought it was just the media we were writing on (memorex), so I tried one of my discs (maxell) which I know work in my dvd burner because I have burned a few (they work in his aswell).

Anyway, that didnt work either.

At first I thought it was just his burner acting up (burning dvd’s wierd or smth) but I have an older disc from him which reads perfectly.

Firmware on this thing is default as to when I got it, bys1 (or bsy1), I tried another and it gave me the same results.

If anyone else has had this problem and has had it resolved please post.

Thanks

Try flashing the drive with firmware BYS2 - reading and writing has been much more smoother for me since I flashed it.
