after so many struggles and tryings, i almost utterly surrender to Optorite dd0203. i got a pile of dvd-r 2x which are lying there coz no matter how i burn i got unreadable dvd-r. i tried diff burning programs: Nero 60015, RecordNow, Copy2DVD. all to no avail.my Pioneer slot-in 106S and my newly-bought LG8161B can't read the dvd-r at all!
i really got the impulse of disposing all those useless dvd-r.but it is a wasteful act. then i told myself: why not trying until u get something. so i reread the threads again. there is this guy who claimed his Toshiba M1712 dun read the dvd-r until he chose the multisession in his RecordNow.
so this gives me a clue. i tried Nero latest 60015. i burnt 1GB data( 4 DIVX, each ard 350MB,tv series).
firstly i chose MULTISESSION,as normally what i m doing all the time.; the DVD-r rendered unreadable in my LG8161B and Pioneer 106S.
i tried MULTISESSION ( Nero warned me that 'some dvdroms may have problems reading multisession disc do you wan 2 proceed. 2 options given.")
i proceeded with MULTISESSION.
Guess what?? The miracle happened! the rendered DVD-r successfully autodetect when i inserted it in!Both pioneer 106s & LG8161B read the content infallibly.
dun u think it is so funny? what i think ironical is that part when Nero warned that Multisession Disc may not be recognised in some dvdroms.
but my encounter now contradicts that completely.
from this observations i guess Optorite is wrong somewhere in handling the multisession thing??? i just hope this can be fixed. but for the time being, if u r like me who gets so many dvd-r and depressed because Optorite renders them unreadable in DVDROMs, you should try out the MULTISESSION BURNING. it is a miracle, at least, to me!
so now i can keep all my dvd-r already. haha
