Hello all. I am brand new to the forum. I am not a computer freak by any menas but I am pretty knowledgable. I have been backing up movies for a while now and I use AnyDVD and CloneDVD2. I rarely have a problem and have been satisfied so far.
Last week, I upgraded my drive’s firmware. I have a GSA-H31N that came with my Dell XPS-410. I upgraded it because I was having trouble with a disc and saw there was a newer firmware version - B110.
Before I upgraded the firmware, I am positive the drive would write DVD+RDL. I don’t normally use DL discs but I tried to today. When I try to write to the DL now I get a message that says the source data is too large.
The source ISO is 6.91GB and I do have a DVD+RDL disc in there. I have also written the discs in the past.
I used DISCInfo to read my drive capabilities and it DOES NOT list DVD+RDL. However, if I use DVD Identifier it shows DVD+R DL option check in green, so I assume it shows I can write DVD+R DL discs.
I may be doing something wrong on the software end, but I have a funny feeling It is the firmware upgrade. Is it possible to lose write capabilities with a firmware upgrade?
What do you guys need from me to help me fix my problem?
Thanks in advance.
PS - Oh I also just downloaded the B109 firmware - is it possible to flash the firmware in reverse and go back to an older version or is that a bad idea asking for problems? Right now, I can still backup DVD’s on single layer discs so I don’t want to lose all functionality.
