Hey all.
I have a TDK DVDRW0404N. And lately it has been messing up pretty bad. I get alot of rings or gaps when i burn and it has been getting errors. Please help. It was working fine, I switched the firmware to 1.0c from 1.0 and then it still worked fine, a while later it started getting rings and errors while burning. I need some serious help asap :confused:
Thanks alot in advance!

What are the specific errors that you are getting?
Is it producing unreadable discs?

thanks a bunch!

What discs are you using? MID ?


#6

I am using TDK 8X dvd+R. By MID do you mean media id? I think it could possibly be a firmware issue. But has anyone heard of this? It started a WHILE after updating the firmware from 1.0 to 1.0c . If anyone could help me out it would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

thanks alot!

I just took a look over at VideoHelp, and there’s no “0404N” listed but there is a “440N”… And it sounds like the drive might just be getting old. Sounds like you’re using good media, so that’s not the problem… I’d just save up the $40 or $50 or whatever new drives cost these days and pick up a nice, new, faster drive. This one sounds like a dead end.
