I am looking for any firmware updates greater than TF32 (which is on my September 2007 drive… the older of the two).
I saw a TF36 but it comes on the new drives, not as an update.
I also see other firmwares mentioned but can only find a download for the TF32.
I’m having problems burning to an HD-DVD blank.
(tells me “disc is not empty”).
I have 2 of the same drives, one with a TF32 firmware and one with a TO35 firmware
(on my April 2008 drive), and both units give me this error.
Both drives are N.O.S. and work perfectly for all but HDDVD burning.
I’m using Memorex 1X 15 Gb Blanks.
Units are fine with reading and burning DVDs & CDs and will PLAY an HDDVD Movie disc.
The drive gets recognized by the software (Nero 9 and ImgBurn) but insists the media is not blank.
I’m just not sure if it’s a firmware problem, a brand problem or both and any insight will be helpful.
It’s a PITA working with an obsolete format as there is little info available.
I have heard that Verbatims should be used with these and not Memorex but I was hoping that someone knew more about the drives
or had a FW upgrade that is known to work with these Memorex discs lest they become coasters.
I also don’t want to buy more blanks (Verbatim or others) if there is a problem with these units and not the discs.
If there is a brand that will work, I’ll pop these Memorexes up on E-bay or something and get ones that will work.
Oh and by the way, not to be a smart alec… but yes, I know they are HD-DVD
and yes, I know Blu-Ray is better, etc…
I need to get help because i do have a project that needs to be on HD-DVD.
Any help and / or direction will be most appreciated.
