Burnt a DVD+r with Roxio s/w on a Windows Media Centre PC. The DVD can be read on that PC's DVD-RW drive as well as an XP Home laptop with a DVD-RW drive.
But it is not recognised at all in a 3rd PC's DVD reader (only) drive, which can read standard pressed DVDs (i.e. not burnt on home PCs). Clicking on the DVD drive with the DVD+r already inserted, generates the message to insert a disc.
I burnt the DVD+r (8x speed) at 6x speed, single pass only which finalises the DVD at the end of that same burn session. Its a Maxell DVD+r.
Anyone else experienced the same? And found a workaround please?
.. had not realised that! Then found my Samsung SD-616T DVD drive does not read DVD+R discs from the Samsung support site...
Feeling brave, so downloaded the firmware update file and ran the executable program, following the attached instructions. What do you know! It now read the DVD+R disc (back-up data content) with no problems!!
