16 DVD drive will not record on 16X disks. Will record 8X disks

My computer is a eMachines T6410 with a 16Xdouble layer multiformat drive. I have been using nextech DVD- R 8x disks with no problems.I got a package of Memorex DVD-R 16X disks. I now get an error message of "illegal disk" or "windows has found a problem with the disk". Is there a setting I am missing or is there something with the disk that is not compatiable with my computer?

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

    COMPUTER NOT READING IT, NOT BEING RECOGNIZED BY COMPUTER


    Turn your computer off, and unplug the AC power.

    Open up your computer, and unplug the "data" and "power" cables from the DVD-drive, and then reconnect them. Check that the "other" end of the "data" cable is firmly attached to the motherboard.

    Reconnect the power, and restart the computer.
    Press DEL to enter BIOS-setup mode.
    Is the DVD-drive still not detected?

    If it is not detected, it probably is electronically "dead", and needs to be replaced.

    Cannot record on 16X DVD-R


    You will need to call Funai 1 800 605 8457 give them your brand / model number and expose your problem - they should be able to send you an upgrade disc but it will cost you -
    If you want my advice - you DO NOT need a 16x disc inside a DVD recorder - the optical drives used on DVD recorders and even worse a Funai drive are quite bad as it is in terms of writing strats for higher speeds - you are better off recording at 8x on a 16x disc.this will provide better burns ( lower PIE/PIF errors and jitter %).

    Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


    I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

    If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

    Burning dvd data


    its telling you that the dvd are not being closed, do you wait until the computer tells you its finished before you eject the disk, most lite on dvd's will eject themselves when done.
