Question about Mad Dog Multimedia Dominator (MD-12XDVDRW-SE) (MD12XDVDRWSE) DVD±RW Burner
Recently having problems burning DVD-R that are 16x. Was burning 8x fine but haven't had the need to burn lately. When I try to burn a dvd video ts file my Nero program says illegal disc. I went back to the place I purchased the dvd-r from and they said I should be able to burn on these but not at 16x speed if all my dvd burner is rated for 8x. Is there something I'm not doing right? P.S. They were nice enough to give me a new batch of discs. Never had this problem before. Thank you for any help James L. Kiah
I've had the same problem. I've tried TDK and Sony I figured I was safe with those known brands. I'ts getting harder to find 8x dvds as some places don't carry them anymore.

Some disc brands just don't work with certain burners, and that can result in the said error. Did the store give you a different brand when they replaced your old batch? this error can also be a result from burning too much to the disc, or from trying to copy protected content. If you're burning movies, I would suggest that you close all other programs while burning, and burn at the lowest speed. Regardless to the error, you'll get a better quality result. Good luck

Firmare ave to match the original drives spec and usually do not turn it into something faster the media has to match the spec of the original as well

It could be lower quality media that the drive does not like for 16x writing. I would try a higher quality blank DVD. It could also be the software you are using. I recommend imgburn from http://www.imgburn.com/ which is a great little free app. This program is a very no nonsense burning app without the bloat of most other programs.
If you buy a single or 5 pack of high end media and use imgburn yet it still will not burn at 16x speeds I would contact Mad Dog as you may have a bad drive.
