i am qute new, i have a dvd dual layer ± burner (it a laptop burner). I have got some Datawrite reds (v3) but they have been useless … have tried 6/7 none worked at all.
Do i need a firmware upgrade? (i dout it the drive is pretty new (copies ± R at 8X)) so is it the discs … are they just no good for the drive.
I cannot see a sony forum but liteon - is supposed to be just the same products with different names.
I have bought since:
Datawrite Premium Inkjet Printable (4x) DVD-R in Spindle Tubs of 25
Ritek Inkjet Printable (G05 dye) A Grade (8x) DVD-R in Pack of 25
Bulkpaq Inkjet Printable (8x) DVD-R in Spindle Tubs of 25
should they work?
bythe way what does firmware do?
does it increase the speed of the copying or something??? if you have a dvd-recordable drive can with firmware become a dvd -rewritable for example???
thanks a lot
