many tests, many questions
burn many differents -R media (Bulkpaq, Memorex, Verbatim, Q 4x) and everytime I can't read those dvd in a PC reader (differents brands tested : Liteon 163d, Pioneer 116 & 119R, Samsung), but they play very well in standalone player (Toshiba, Pioneer 535, Sony). Also tried different software.
When I make the same tests with +R media (Imation, Verbatim, Memorex), they play flawlessly in my PC.
The problem is the same with data dvd (impossible to read -R media onto my PC, no problem wih +R)
The big mystery is that the same -R media, written with another burner (a Pioneer) will be read without any problem.
Any clue ?
Yes, the DVD-R discs (made by both Optodisc and Ritek) burned by the DD0203 cannot be read by my Lite-On 163 DVD-ROM as well. But I'm not too concerned since I burn mostly DVD-Video discs for my DVD players. However, I also have another older Toshiba DVD-ROM which can read these DVD-R discs without any problems.
So this seems to be a compatibility issue rather than quality issue of the discs and burner. So far we have info that DVD-R discs burned by the DD0203 can be read by EPO and Toshiba DVDROM drives, but not by Lite-On, Pioneer, and Samsung drives. I hope Optorite is aware of the issue and working on it.
