Will latest firmware help player to read?



I have old firmware on my 411, but I am able to read DVDs just fine on the 411 and also on my SONY player.

My brother-in-law has a relatively new high end player, which is supposed to play DVD+R. He can not read my burns.

Could a firmware update help ?

Does the latest firmware on the LiteOn site perform well ?
If not, what is the latest recommended firmware for the 411s?



Have you tried bitsetting the DVD+R discs to DVD-Rom?


His player says DVD+R only.
I have tried DVD-R in his player with no luck.

Should I try it anyway?
