Right, finally bought a Ricoh DVD+R / +RW model number MP5125A-DP and having a few issues!
First off it didn't recognise DVD+R's so I upgraded the firmware and that sorted out that problem. Now it'll see them but won't write.
It will write to DVD+RW fine but it won't recognise the DVD+R's as having any free space.
Put a brand new DVD+R in the drive and Windows says there is only 308Mb free!!! WTF! Ermm thats a far cry from 4.7Gb I think! lol
Do I need to prepare the disc's in any manner or have Ricoh sold me a duff drive?
I'm running XP Pro SP1 with all updates. AMD XP+ 2Ghz. 512Mb RAM.
