Re: DVD+RW says 'No Medium Present'
I've got a question in regards to a 'destroyed' DVD+RW.
The behavior I'm seeing is my DVD drive (a NEC 1100A) isn't
recognizing my media, a Philips 4x DVD+RW.
The specifics are I burned a home movie to the Philips DVD using
Pinnacle Studio 9,
Keep in mind that this is a list for Unix/Linux users...
which said it succesfully burned the DVD. But upon reinserting the DVD into
the same DVD drive, all I get is 'No medium present'
My question for you is two-fold:
1) Is there any way to recover my DVD+RW so I can use it again?
If unit says "no media," then there is hardly anything one you do. You
*might* be able to reformat it in another unit of *different* brand
2) What could have caused this in the first place?
Are you sure that it wasn't a media defect on that particular disk? How
many discs got wasted? One? I mean can you really confirm that *every*
time you let Pinnacle burn a DVD+RW, the disc is rendered 100% useless?
What did Pinnacle do?
If you really can reuse every particular disc multiple times *till*
Pinnacle screws it up, then only Pinnacle would be able to tell what
they did the do [or didn't] and resolve the problem.
^^^^^ Same media *brand*, not same disk, right? That is
the question you should ask yourself. A.
Using other programs like Nero or DVD Decrypter, I can burn fine
with the same media/DVD drive.
