I had no problems until today. I am using anydvd and clonedvd2 they are wonderful. I just gotten these blank dvd's today called Taiyo Yuden 8X dvd-r and I using optrite dd-1205 and lite on dvd sohd-167T won't begin to write it just keep prompting me to put in a blank dvd. I think that I probably need some kind of upgrade or something. I put in 3 blank TY's already I can hear the drive reacting to the disk but it won't write. I've used 3 types of media before like TDK and maxell and memorex and no problem. I seen the great prices on TY's and read the reviews etc. So I bought them but now I have 300 of them lol. I can return them but before I do I was hoping to get some help here first. Also I read about firmware is that some kind of update for your hardware but I will settle for any help on my lite on right now. thanks for any help out there.
