Re: Cannot burn Memorex DVD-R 16x

I hate being so simple on these questions, but these problems are always a process of elimination. First thing you always do in situations like this - try another brand of disc. Good luck!

Do I need a new driver to use Memorex DVD-R 16X on my Samsung CD-R/W SW-212B, and if so where can I get a download for it? Thanks; Bob.

Hey Bob if your Samsung is a CD-R/W burner and not a DVD burner then you will not be able to burn the DVD's you will need to upgrade to a DVD Burner, also with the CD's you will need to check that your CD burner is compatible with that type of disc,

Will not read disks

Is this an older drive? Possible that the drive is dying. I had this happen to me once. I ended up buying a new cd/dvd burner. The laser works different when reading verse burning, so it is possible that it is dead, but still working just enough to burn.

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.

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
