Re: dvd+rw-tools update [126.96.36.199.5, FreeBSD 5-current, DVD+R speed, Optorite]
Thought I would post back to the list regarding an issue in my
experience with the Optorite drive model DD0203. The new tools
(5.15) that Andy has released work great. However, I had many
problems trying to verify the media after it was burned. It turns
out that the *labeled* CD media would not read reliably.
Producing seek errors. The same media when tested in another drive
would verify fine.
I tried three different drives and experienced the same problems.
This problem also effected the use of just CDR type media as well.
Labeled CDR media would fail to verify after burning but would
verify using a different drive.
These read problems were apparent even if the media was burned
months ago on a different drive. If the media had a label, it
would not read correctly.
My CD labels are the adhesive type, large circular, plain white that
come two on a sheet. They have not given any problems before,
