My friend burned some files onto a 8.5gb Dual-Layer DVD and the files show up on his driver when the DVD is inserted, but when I insert the DVD onto my computer it reads the disk but no files show up. I do have a dual-layer drive. Any ideas? Thanks

Well, maybe it's somehow defective ? Did you check if any firmware update was available for it ?

I googled the website for the DVD driver (Labelflash) for updates, found nothing. Maybe you can get better luck or maybe I missed something...if you wouldn't mind checking real quick that would be awesome!

Well, what is the exact model you have ? You should be able to see it in Windows' properties window, on the "Hardware" tab.

I'm not sure exactly what to look for but in the hardware section I looked under "DVD/CD-ROM drives" and found, DB0420R OOL554N ATA Device and Optiarc DVD RW AD-7203A ATA Device. Hope that helps, Thanks

OK, google comes up with nothing about the first one, so I'll assume that it's a virtual drive, and the second is the real one... which according to a little googling would be made by Sony and / or (?) Nec. Seems like there would be some firmwares available here : Liggy's and Dee's Optiarc 7200, 7201 and 7203 firmware ... however I don't know what they mean by "modified" :hmm:

The modified firmware allows for " faster" burning ConstanceJill.

Thanks alot! I download the "Original Optiarc AD7203A firmware 1.06" and it gave me a .bin file. I'm not too sure what to do with this.

a bin file is an image file G.

You have to mount it to a virtual drive. How Do I Use or Open Bin, Cue, or ISO Files? - Tech-Recipes.com

In this case seeing as they have given you a bin file, this isn't treated as a " pirate" situation.

I tried to mount it with a IDE virtual drive but then it says application cannot be found. I also tried with a SCSI drive but it cannot be opened.
