Being a noob apparently…i need some help
I have an Inspiron 6400 that is only a couple of months old and it has a Sony DVD RW DW-Q58A drive. Everything was working fine 2 weeks ago.
I purchased new dvd-r 16x discs (Memorex)…i know they’re brutal now. While trying to create a dvd…the burn failed early and reported illegal disc. I know that the new discs require the latest firmware and mine was uds1…i think that’s the factory basic firmware. I ended up getting UYS3 firmware but didn’t have any more luck with the burner.
Thinking it was simply the discs…i went and purchased some Fujifilm dvd+r discs from 1x-16x and had an even quicker failure and ejection and I’ve also noticed that the led light is now orange and i think it used to be green (could be wrong)
So once again…i went out and purchased some Verbatim dvd-r discs and it’s still not working. It’s becoming so frustrating.
Do i need to revert back to uds1? If so…how do i do that?..or what should the next step be?
Thanks for any help i can get
