I’ve just bought a DVD burner - TEAC DV-W516GA. The problem is, that it absolutely refuses to burn on a specific DVD-R 4x discs. The manufacturer (Optical Storage) is local. The discs are cheap, but they’re quite OK in quality - I’ve burnt many CDs from OP and very few of them failed at burning.
A friend of mine has a Plextor DVDRW PX-712A and has absolutely no problem so far. We’ve tried several different DVDs, changed Windowses, Nero’s version, I even brought the TEAC to my friend and tested it if it will work on his system. It didn’t.
I’ve found that TEAC DVD burners are actually made by Liteon, and I’ve found out that some new Liteon DVD burners have the same problem with DVD-R 4x discs.
What will you advice me to do? I am considering swapping it for an LG GSA-4163B, which additionally supports DVD-RAM. It is faster and it is the editor’s choice at CDRInfo.com.
