DVD Drive Philips SDVD 7831

Postby greenivories » Sun May 21, 2006 12:46 am

Hey guys

I have an Amilo L7310GW. I don't think the DVD writer has ever worked. Reading/writing cds and reading dvds is fine, but writing data dvds isn't. I backed up some files there to dvd, I thought they were written successfully, but I checked and the dvd is recognised as a blank cd. Can anyone give me any advice? I had a look at the firmware page, but I'm not sure which version one to use? There are several updates for this drive, which version do I use? Also what software do you find most compatible with this drive? Nero didn't work for me.

Many thanks in advance

Make sure, that you finalize your DVD when you burn it! (Nero burns non-finalized multisessions by default). Then you should be able to read the burnt data.
