i have 2x 109 drives in different machines 1x xp2000 and 1x p4-2.8GHZ
both drives write cdr / cdrw and dvd +r fine BUT dvd-r cannot be read in any other drive but a dvd burner. (any dvd burner)
a straight reader type displays the message, disk may be corrupt or invalid file system.
now for the strange bit…
insert the disk in a drive that cant read it,
then open nero (or any other) dvd media interigator, and choose the drive with the so-called corrupt disk in, it says 1 track, however many files and folders etc and gives a correct reading of data stored on disk, although the disk is flaged in RAW mode.
the same disk will read, play movie in any set top type dvd player, and also a philips and a sony set top dvd recorder.
how do i get the drive to make good (read in and pc drive ) burns on -r disks
any help appreciated.
have not flashed them yet although, they did come with a piece of paper saying they had been done in factory and stating revised compatibility and speeds.
