Recommended Posts

'Dash' media is burned is slightly different manner than 'plus' media but the only time I have seen a failure was due to the specific media. In my case, the media failed while sitting on the spindle about 6 months after I bought it.

 

What error messages does it produce?

You're welcome.

 

You might want to check back at that site occasionally. It seems that burner needs updates to recognize some brands of DVDs.

You need a small free program to check. #1 in my signature, download to a folder on the hard drive and unzip, then just click on the .exe, click disc info tab. Or dvd identifier v5.0.1, here. Download it, unzip and install it.

mr guru:

now my cd burner (a separate unit) has started acting up. it's also a Lite ON on unit LTR48247S. it seems it will only burn a cd now if i run it in test and burn mode, which slows things down a bunch. i guess its using firmware designated PPB1.

 

i couldn't find a firmware upgrade for that particular model number at their website, but i inquired via email. hopefully they will respond.

hi, thanks for your help. it used to burn TDKs and Maxells fine.

 

the error message i get is:

 

Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1633S Cannot write medium. Incompatible format. unit not ready (02/30/05)

i dowloaded and upgraded the firmware and just burnt my first R- in years!

thanks !

 

I sure would like to know the DVD -R media Brand name, the media ID (MID), and the firmware version you updated from?

Thanks for the info.

 

Compaq OEM Drive came with the PC? A new DL DVD/CD Burner at under $30.00, I would plan on replacing it, if funds are available. Slow your burn down and try some Verbatim DVD and CD media.

i think this is the original burner, but i might be mistaken, i've had this unit since late 03 i think it was. what is a DL ? is that a brand name or ? youre probably right, may be worn out. at least its probably no longer supported. maybe there's a 5 yr limit on support from Lite On?

thanks for the help!

No, your burner certainly is not a DL burner. DL means dual layer. I would dump the burner you have now, and get a new one.

sorry, but i didn't write down the previous firmware's designation.

i burnt a TDK disk yesterday and a couple of Maxells today. i am not sure how to find the MID but if you would let me know, i will check. i tried the roxio disk utility but i didn't see anything with that description on it regarding either type of disk.
