This is my first post, but hopefully I’m not an annoying new poster…we’ll see.
I have the Toshiba SD-R5272, and it has recently begun burning blanks of dvd’s only. Using 3 different burning programs (Nero, Alcohol and DVD Decryptor), trying to burn both from an image, and then just the videots folder. No matter how I do the burn, it says that it is burnt successfully, and by looking at the disk, it HAS information burned onto it, but when I try to load the disk to play the movie, I get nothing, and trying to explore the disk shows it as being empty. If I load the burned disk and then try to burn something else onto it (it’s not a RW…just for testing purposes), DVD Decrypter says that it can’t read the TOC.
I HAVE burnt probably 40 dvd’s on this drive already and they were all fine. There are only two things I can think of that were out of the ordinary that I did with the drive recently. The first was that I tried to make a copy of a PAL dvd, and when I was ripping it, I changed the region to 2. I have since changed that back. The other thing (more suspect) is that I upgraded the firmware from the default 1030, to 1031 (from rpc1.org). I can’t remember if I burned any successful dvd’s since I did that upgrade. Oh wait…there was a third thing. I went into Dvd Decrypter and was fooling around in the Change Book type settings (all of which responded with “unknown”).
I can still burn cd’s fine…it’s only Dvd’s I have a problem with.
Has this happened to anyone else, or can someone shed some light on the situation?
I did already search through the forum for anything similar, and came across a few things, but nothing that seemed to fit precisely to this situation.
Thanks for your help!
