    Sorry if we arn't allowed to make these or something but the other 2 had been closed :(

    NERO LOG
    The media is both Transonic DVD-R's and unbranded discs (well, re-labeled discs from a local store...). Both give the same error message, older media works fine and I can't find any newer firmware for my drive via the LiteOn website.

    Both discs work on my newest Acer laptop (5600 series) DVD-RW drive so i guess firmware or DMA mode is the problem?

    Help would be greatly appreciated, otherwise having 100 dvd-r's that only work on my 2x dvd-rw on my laptop will be painful :(

    Cheers

    Your version of Nero is an older one, try here for update...both packages


    http://httpdl1.usw.nero.com/software/Nero6/Nero-6.6.0.18_no_yt.exe

    Package 2
    http://httpdl1.usw.nero.com/software/Nero6/NVE-3.1.0.21_no_yt.exe


    Update your firmware to BSOY from here

    DMA needs to be on, heres a guide to turn back on

    if yours is different than this get back to us.

    I have NEVER heard of these discs, but I'm certain they are not good quality, try Verbatim or Sony (made in japan)
