hopefully this is the right section to post this in… (my burner is a lite-on 1673S with JS0D firmware)
ok here is my problem and it seems odd… i just noticed this a hour or so before i posted this and before this it worked perfectly fine the last i checked… ok well, i got some dvd+rw media and i cant seem to erase them… everytime i try to in nero express v184.108.40.206 i get a message of … “this disc in not a re-writable disc and therefore cannot be erased” message… which is bs cause the disc is a memorex 4x dvd+rw disc… but anyways the weird thing is i goto disc info in nero express and it says under DVD Session … “DVD-ROM” when it’s really a dvd+rw disc so basically i cant erase/write to the disc… but heres the weird part that i cant seem to figure out… if i close nero etc etc and then start up the “booktype135.exe” program (with the disc that nero could not erase already in the drive) even that claims the disc is a DVD-ROM … it even says DVD-ROM where it says… “Current Disc Type” … so that right there it’s like the drive is seeing it as a dvd-rom disc instead of a dvd+rw disc… but heres the weird part… if i start up the booktype135.exe program BEFORE inserting the dvd+rw disc"s" (this happends on more than one dvd+rw disc both are memorex 4x rated) then i insert the disc into the drive and load the disc… it then see’s it as a dvd+rw disc (for both disc type and booktype) , then i can format the disc in nero express and even burn data to it again… but as soon as i close that booktype135.exe program and eject the dvd+rw disc and reinsert it i get that damn dvd-rom stuff again and nero wont erase the disc.
is there anything i can do? … or is this some sorta rare error.
thanks alot for your time.
p.s. i can burn regular dvd+r discs fine with a booktype of dvd-rom and all is fine … it’s just with the dvd+rw disc(s) above is when i get the problems explained above… and only way to make it work is to load up that damn booktype135.exe program first before loading the disc into the drive tray.
