I have two problems - 1 relates to new version of ImageDrive with Nero 6 (another thread on CD Freaks tackles this), and the other is my new LDW-411S drive.
So far I have destroyed 3 DVDs when burning them - roughly about 5% through the burn process (it varies) and Nero brings up a burn failure message. I have been trying to burn from both DVD Shrink3 and Nero Recode 2. More drink coasters.
I was showing the brother-in-law the Liteonutil for my DVD ROM LTD-163D when I selected the 411S instead and set it for region free. It was late in the evening, after a few beers hmmm… You get the picture.
The other thing that is confusing the hell out of me is that the LDW-411S shows revision FSOG; the latest revision on the Lite-on site is FSOF. How can this be? I try and burn the firmwear for FSOF and it says “no matched drive detected”. See image attached.
Running Nic’s LiteonUtil now indicates that the drive is Region code all, RPC1 region control with N/A for both user changes and vendor changes left.
I have been trying to burn with Shintaro DVD-R discs rom JB Hi-Fi (which appear to be manufactured by Princo), and reading the specs off Nic’s other programme, they are almost identical except for the 4 x Write strategy fields 1-6 and 2 x speed power which is higher than the Princo original DVD-R I am comparing with.
I am stumped and would really love some thoughts before I take the drive back acorss the north side of town and ask for a replacement. Reading all the threads above, I do not think that I have done anything wrong, apart from perhaps using the Liteonutil with the DVDRW instead of the DVDROM drive, and am not happy with producing white drink coasters. The revision number is really stumping me. :a
Any ideas/further tests/tips and hints before I rip the drive out would be gratefully appreciated.
