Write Error: Burns to a percentage and stops. Various times it stopped at 65%, 25%, 72%... Lite-On SOHW 1673S Memorex DVD-R

There are a couple of things doing it.

Best bet? Try burning with other media other then Memorex.
If that doesnt work, you might have a buffer underrun error. Meaning the data is not geting to the burner as fast as it wants it. The fix? Try burning at a lower speed to see if it burns right.
Lastly, defrag your hard drive in windows. Click on "My Computer" on the desktop, right click on the "C:\" and select "Properties", click the "Tools" tab. Under "Defragmentation" click "Defragment now". One of the three should work. If all there don't work, you might have to replace the burner.

Have a nice day!

I gotta plextor 712a dvd drive; it does read other media except dvd. blink rate is 2 while color is amber. what should i do as a fix?

Does it read _any_ DVD drive, especially commercially-produced ones?
If not, then it's time to spend $40 to purchase a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Goes to copy files onto DVD with windows media player, but comes up with a long error code right at the end. Have changed speed down to x4 even though dvd's support 16x

Have you tried any other software for burning files??
I use a couple of free programs.
IMGBURN very good, can burn data and image files, but cant make an audio disc from mp3 files
CDBurnerXP this can do everything
If you are still having problems after using these programs, try write the error code down and we can take it from there

Desktop DVD fails to recognize "commercial" DVDs

Hello my friend,i can think only 2 things.The first thing is the region code.So right-click My Computer then select Properties,select the Hardware tab,click the Device Manager button and go to DVD/CD-ROM drives,double click to open the tree.Then choose your dvd burner and double click or right click and properties to open the dvd properties.Go to the dvd region code and select the code/country that the dvd supports and click OK.Also you can download a program called region free.The second thing is that your drive supports CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM so if the disc is something else then is not supported by your reader/burner.

Pioneer dvd r/rw wont play a dvd

If your computer recognizes a disc in the drive and operates normally, Id assume you would need a DVD player or codec to be able to actually watch the DVD. PowerDVD rings a bell.
Have you tired that? I know Windows Media Player by default wont let you watch a movie without first downloading a codec.

Problem copying a movie onto a lightscribe hp dvd +r media disc, using my hp dvd940e dvd writer

The semaphore timeout period has expired refers to the fact that the driver is no longer communicating with the device and failed. Each time a CD Burner is setup for a CD Burning session the burner hardware will perform a 15 step power test to determine the OPC for a Blank Media Disc, OPC meaning Optimum Power Calibration. This test also takes place during the CD Burning process so the CD Burner can determine the best burn speed and method for the disc; this test is called 'Running Optimum Power Calibration'. Although the test is performed by the hardware of the CD Burner, the device initializes the CD Burning Software for the test to take place. This is one reason why your software may report the "Power Calibration Error" or ?Calibration Error Full?. With Power Calibration errors they can be caused by different factors and sometimes difficult to locate, especially if the errors are at random. Below are the known factors that will cause the Power Calibration Errors and how to check each factor, it is important that each point is considered if wanting to get to the bottom of the error. Power Calibration Errors can occur when OPC or ROPC tests for the media disc so the condition of the disc, brand of disc and even the firmware for the CD Burner can be the cause for the errors occurring. A device such as a CD Burners can have different problems if there is a power consumption issue with the system and the Power Calibration Error is just one of those problems. If using either an internal or external CD Burner make sure to disconnect all other devices, except the hard drive and Burner, before attempting to burn a disc. Double check all cables for any faults and if possible test with a 2nd Data Cable. It is also advisable to disconnect the power connection for the CD Burner and test with a spare connector. If you have no trouble with other discs, use them and put to one side the lightscribe, other than that try the burner in another pc or with other burning software, as you can see it's quite ridiculous what problems burners can create.
