This is my first post here, so i’m sorry if there is another thread on this, i didn’t find one.
Ive got the tdk 440n -+rw drive. since i upgraded to firmware version 1.0a from 1.08, i’ve experience problems where my tdk won’t recognize new media. It came bundled with Roxio, and I also have nero on the machine for my cdr/rw. no problems until I changed firmware.
problem: I use DVD Xcopy and 123 copy dvd to back up my kids movies. (I know what your thinking, but its true, my two year old boy loves to change movies now after watching dad and is trashing them.) I had no problems before making his backups, and when I ran either dvdx or 123, after is copied the dvd, i put in the blank dvd, and bing bang boom, i’m done with a backup. Now it won’t read the blank at all and it stays grayed out.
does anyone have a fix for this one? Greatly appreaciate it.
BTW, I’ve tried various vendors of Memorex, TDK, and HP +r media as well as -+ TDK RW media. so its not the media itself.
Admins, I’m glad i found this site, its got a wealth of info and your members have alot of valuable input it looks like.
