Liteon DVD Wtr will not burn on DVD-R Disks

  Killo Bite 22:38 18 Sep 2007

Have I bought incorrect DVD-Rs or am I using a drive not compatible with the DVD-R Disks?

The Drive model No. is Liteon DH-20A3P-12C 20x DVDRW

On the front I was lead to believe this is a Multi-recorder as picture on front of drive says and also in very small letters DVD+R DL is this DVD+R meaning I can only use DVD+R Disk ?

Help please

improve media for writing but the link for Zip donwload from Liteon is sort of not available. Will try a Different Brand of DVD luckily I got one, back in a mo.

This new nero interface bugs.

FAO preston, this may help !

My problem was for some reason with it being the 1st use I was not writing as a DVD, and only writing as a CDR, and realised this that you have to select DVD in the Nero before adding the data to the Disk before a burn.

So make sure if you use a DVD then you choose a DVD burn option and not a CDR option.

Welcome to be mailed offlist if you need more help.
