I have a Sony DW-D22A - flashed with cross patched stock Lite-On SOHW-1633S BS0S firmware.
It looks like I may be using the same dvdâ€™s as you, mine are a online retailers own brand (naming no names - donâ€™t want to advertise any one) I am having trouble burning to these discs. I am using gear pro mastering edition, it seems to burn ok, however when it tries to verify, the drive will not recognise that a dvd is inserted, I have also tried it in a stand alone machine, and still no luck in recognising the dvd.
I think the problem may be when it closes the dvd; it seems to drop out half way through finishing the recording stage, so maybe the toc is not being written properly. Have you had this problem or has anyone else heard of the problem.
Will flashing to BS41 improve my chances of burning a successful dvd (I donâ€™t wish to keep flashing my drive in case something goes wrong and I damage it) or could it be a software problem?
