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?

Cdvd rom dont work on emachine, will a usb 2.0 external dvd rom drive work


If it is USB CD_Drive you can plug it in a USB port of the computer. You may have to install drivers, but usually Windows Update can download them from the Internet.

When attempting to copy blu ray disc message reads disc not detected.(emachine e525)


Although the same shape and size, Blue Ray disks are a completely different format to DVD's and CD's. You drive won't recognise them

You'll need to get a Blue ray RW drive, and it doesn't stop there. Because there a great deal more information on a blueray disk, you'll need several dvd disks to copy the info to a DVD.

Bluerays hold about 25Gb of data, DVD's hold 4.7 GB and CD's hold 700Mb data.

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4040N drive in stalled in an emachine Laptop, the drive will read data,cds music and dvd movies, but can not burn either cds or dvd...Depending on which program i use for...


well there could be a few things you can try
1) update the firmware and see if it works any better
2) try brand name DVD-R disks and CD-R disks
3) try an updated hack firmware such as these http://tdb.rpc1.org/#GWA4040N
4) try Nero Lite. it is free and it supports almost any drive. http://www.nero.com/eng/downloads-nero9-free.php

I would not worry about the driver as they normmally would not need any.

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.

How do I record onto a 8x dvd rather than a16x


if you are yousing a DVD recording software like Nero or some then in the settings just before the burn yu can find optins generally on the left you have to expand on te menu by clicking on the button and you can change the speed of writing the DVDs...

though to my understanding if the empty DVD-Rs are 8x then the speed of writing the DVDs is automatically calibarated at 8X but well you have the solution even the other case now

if you need any further assistance you can mail me mail2pvs@gmail.com

I can't print label to cd dvd from my dvd unit


Before you can use a lightscribe facility, you must have 3 things, which are, A DVD Drive thats has a lightscribe capability/function, a lightscribe software, and a lightscribe compatible CDDisk.
From what I can see, your drive is not capable, or does not support lightscribe functionality. I tried to check everything about your system model and I discovered that the capability of your DVD Drive is this :
  • Writable DVD formats: DVD-R (6x, DL [double layer]), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (DL [double layer]), DVD-RAM
  • CD formats: CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x)
Which means your DVD Drive does not support Lightscribe facilities.
You can also check everything about your system from this link :

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

If this is original equipment inside your pc then go to the website of who made your pc and check the spec's. If the burner does not say
dvd-rw, DL, then no it is not capable of burning a double layer dvd disk.

DVD/CD rom drive issues


Hi, it appears that CDW/DVDROM is only detected in BIOS but in normal windows. This is a known issue from Microsoft eventhough you are using Windows Xp or Vista the CDW/DVDROM is not detected and does not appear in My computer icon. This can be easily fixed by a registry tweaks.

Please click on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks
