I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 DVD writer and I'm unable to read blank DVDs ( only Benq 16X DVD-R at hand ). Surprisingly enough, after I wrote some content on them with another drive I can read them with the initial one.
In dmesg I get messages like
cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize! end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0 Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0 end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0
Does this happen because of a compatibility problem or due to a hardware fault?
Update: Nero under Windows works just fine, so it's probably a Linux issue.
