Re: DVD compatible media

I have the same exact model. How do you like it so far?

Thanx for the advice miss; I thought I read somewhere around here that Ritek discs were a good choice but I couldn't remember for sure. I bought a pack of Sony's, here in town, to test out the burner. I'll be ordering a bunch of discs soon and wanted to get some input.

Re: DVD compatible media

I've only had it installed in my computer for about a week now....got it with some Xmas money.

I like it so far...seems to be fairly quiet. BUT I haven't really "test driven" it yet. I've only burned two discs so far...and those were the 2 starter discs that came with it - just messing around more then serious burning.

I had not seen that list of media that Lite On recommends....I had bought some Fuji media at Best Buy on sale the other day. When I start burning I'll let you know how the Fuji stuff works.

Re: DVD compatible media

Go with the Ritek...I've had problems with all of the "main" brands, but very few with Ritek, and all of them were the result of a slowly dying drive, not the discs themselvs.

Re: DVD compatible media

i don't care for ritek myself and stick with fuji, maxell, tdk, verbatim mostly
your drive should work with 99% of discs though so don't worry about that

videohelp.com and meritline used to have charts as well for players and burners you might want to look at if you are worried

Plus!, you can combine material from different DVD sources onto one (make your own compilation)...and a bunch of other stuff. If you haven't tried it you're missing out on A LOT of nice options.

yes indeed, dvd shrink rules. I know so many people that have told me they couldnt copy a dvd because it was too big. Turned em on the shrink and now they are burning fools....

Angry 4th coaster in a row, WTF??

I paid $120 for a burner (LiteOn), burned like 50 DVDs and 50 CDs (Verbatim) with some minor troubles and now, out from nowhere... four coasters in a row!! I'm asking, what the fuck?!? The dvds are not all messed up, one up to say ten songs fail md5 and cannot be copied from the dvd. One decent DVDR costs $1... Who the fuck is trying to screw me? I don't want to pay for such shit!! Man, I'm really pissed off, where's my sledgehammer when I need it??

In a 50 spindle pack of CDr's, if there are 3 or 4 bad ones in the spindle they're usually right after one another. At least thats how it usually works for me.

Re: 4th coaster in a row, WTF??

have you installed any different burning programs recently? that can cause bad burns when you get conflicting programs

No conflicting programs, no overburns, speed 1x-4x (DVD+R).

Plextor is a great idea, but hey! I have to spend some money on food!! Take the price of Plextor in US, multiply by 2 and you get the price here. Nowadays Plextor can be purchased for $150 but I bought the burner in July 2004 (Plextors were around $300 those days).

It could have been caused by the media... I'll see...

Re: 4th coaster in a row, WTF??

My Sony Vaio came with a Sony DL DVD burner, apparently made by LiteOn. It is crapping out, and it is about 6 weeks old. It gets stuck while writing the lead-out. Actually, the discs seem to burn ok, but I have to reboot to unlock the drive to get the disc out. Grrr.

I just have to make time on a day it isn’t 50 below or snowing to take it back for a new one. The guy at the store (Best Buy) told me they would replace it with one off the shelf, so I hope to get a plextor.
