Hi everyone at CDR-info.
I'm new to the forums but I have recently been looking and reviewing at the topics of which dvd burner I should buy considering what I will use it for. I bought a new LiteON 812s a few days ago
but I only began using it today. I'm in a need for help.
DVD burner: LiteON SOHW-812s
Firmware: USON using omnipatcher (thanks to Codeguys
Software: Nero 188.8.131.52
Media: SmartBuy 1-4x DVD-R
Since I began burning today and not the day I bought it, I updated the firmware before using it with Omnipatcher applying USON firmware (it was stock USOJ). I did a Info check on the dvd-r blanks using NeroInfoTool and it said they were 4x. So I assumed I could burn them at 4x... I was wrong
I loaded up Nero as usual and started burning. when the burn process began, Nero logs gave me a "Invalid Block Address" but continued to burn at 4x and also the completed percentage bar was stuck at 1% and both buffers appeared to be invalid as well. the media did not burn finish and the dvd-r popped out. I tried a second time with the same product media but this time the "invalid block address" did not appear and the buffers were normal too but the completion bar was still stuck at 1% and the media failed to burn after 6 minutes. I tried another time using the same product media and tried it at 2x and everything was flawless and i assume it will be still flawless using 1x. these were all using smartbuy dvd-rs. and the product spindle package claimed they are certified AAA grade quality DVD-R 1-4x blanks. I have not tried any other media since all the stores are closed.
Any suggestions on how to fix my problem?
Thanks in advance.
