Not sure what to make of this. Suggestions are welcome.
Media is Imation DVD+R. I am using a Sony DRU500AX to burn my discs. DVDXcopy is being used to burn movies (backups ofcourse) and RecordNow DX is in use for data discs.
So far I have burned four movies and two data discs. When I attempt to read them with my Toshiba 1612 the light flashes a few times and then stays lit up. If I double click the object in explorer I receive a message stating that the disc is corrupt or is using a file system windows doesn’t recognize. CRC errors are reported in event viewer. It is the same error and symptoms with both the burned data and movie discs.
All of these discs are perfectly readable in the 500AX that burned them AS WELL as three CDRW/DVDROM combo drives in computers at my place of work (two dell latitude laptops and one optiplex desktop).
Now, if this Toshiba has such great support for all these formats then why is it some OEM machines at work can read these burned discs but my 1612 freaks out? At least one of the combo drives in the Dells at work that can read my discs is a Matsushita.
I have ordered a Liteon LTD-165H to replace this Toshiba with IF it fixes my problem. Does the 165H stand a good chance of reading these burned discs of mine?
