[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-1633S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]hello all-
first, thanks for all the great tools i've found thru this forum - omnipatcher, ltnFW & SmartBurn.
but what i want to ask about is a problem i continue to have burning movies to my verbatim DL +R dvds. i keep getting some skips and pauses in my burns.
what i have tried so far to resolve things is i have updated my firmware to the latest lite-on offering (bsoy) & i tried using different dvd burning programs: imgburn 2.4.1 & nero express 6.3. movies i burn with imgburn will crash my system if i try to play them on my computer (but they will work in my stand alone player). Also, i got ALOT of i/o errors when i burned with imgburn but "burn successfully completed" when i used nero.
i ran smart-burn and i did use the write speed it recommended (2.4x). the media id it identified for my blanks was mkm 001 and omnipatcher says it's supported by my firmware. i also used ltnFW to see if i had a misflash, but i don't.
should this be happening?
here is all the info i collected from smart-burn and omnipatcher:
Drive Type = DVD DUAL
Disc Type = DVD+R DL (Double Layer)
Disc MID = 4D 4B 4D 00 00 00 00 00 (MKM.....)

Nominal Capacity = 7.96GB
