Iam a old one form this board but somehow my previous id is not working. anyways.
In mid august i purchased a LITEON DVDRW LH-20A1H LL0A Writer suggested by the talented users from club.cdfreaks.
Previously I was having a Sony DVDRW:
I used a Disc with Media Code:mbi 01rg40–> writex(which is a moser baer).
After using it sometimes the disc were unreadable in the drive and my drive died.
i brought a temp. drive from my friend to use the same disc to write the data, while i had given the order of LITEON DVDRW LH-20A1H. So i used my friend 's Sony DVDRW. i wrote almost 5-10 dvd’s, and till then my new Writer arrived LITEON DVDRW LH-20A1H in mid august 2007.
Now i used the LITEON DVDRW LH-20A1H writer to write the same media mbi 01rg40. It wrote well.
And off course i was using a second media: OPTODISCR008 which is a pleomax samsung media.
After a short period of time my New Writer LITEON DVDRW LH-20A1H become buggy. At that time it was sometimes not reading the mbi 01rg40 media. And making some strange noises. At that time i en quired my friend about his Sony Drive which i borrowed from him as a temp drive… he told me the drive is not working well it is not reading the disc properly.
Now the date came today. In order to backup my 300gb Data, i brought (50pcs) today a local disc of media code:mcc 03rg20–> emery disc(written on it).
And i m also having 25 disc previously left(mbi 01rg40–> writex)
When i put the new disc’s(mcc 03rg20) in my drive the writer read it after a long time. But when i used nero it took almost 2 min to open the nero screen the nero was analyzing the disc in the drive. And when i tried to write a image it gave me Power Calibration error…thou my disc was fine the writer didn’t write on it.
Then i used the old blank media mbi 01rg40. the problem was still the same.
and again i used OPTODISCR008 Pleomax Samsung media the problem was same but took more time.
And then i was exhausted so i tried the written media the disc’s i wrote on mcc 03rg20,mbi 01rg40,OPTODISCR008, the written disc was also not readable.
SO i tried written cd’r it worked fine i wrote a cdr also it worked fine.
But the dvd are not working and my writer is only 4 months old thou the manufacturing date was May 2007.
Now i need help i think the MEDIA:–> mbi 01rg40–> writex is making all my writers BAD.
I need help plz help me what to do.
I can even send samples of this disc to any one who wanna make his/her drive corrupt.
