I have a Lite-on 811s that's 2nd hand but I know works well. According to the Lite-on website it's a +R +RW recorder. Before I knew this I made :- -R semi successful copy but it would only play on my PS2 -R successful copy -RW successful copy Now I've tried a couple of different +R brands and have got:- 3 coasters 1 seemingly successful copy but it has little pauses all the way through the film. Is it best to copy from the lit-on and burn with same drive. I have another dvd player installed. I tried using the Booktype program on a +R disk but at the end of copying I got a burn error. I'm using DVD X-copy an all in one copy-hack-shrink prog. I know 2 people who have the same setup as me and they both have no probs at all. any help appreciated.
