Will not reconize Memorex blank dvd-r'sometimes

When I use memorex and sometimes other brands of blank dvd-r's.After I put the disk into the drive it all what happens is the light on the drives outside front stays on and it won't turn off thus I can not burn.I just keep using disk until it dose turn off.But here is the kicker.When I reboot the pc the disk that it would not recognize it will now,until 3 0r 4 burns then it starts all over again.Now I have updated the firm ware to the latest to LLOC for that drive.I am wondering if it's the disk that or causing the problem or the drive itself.

Hello, My Philips DVDR7300H has a recording error after burning to dvd - burns VERY Slowly, and then gets hung on 95% - then "Disk Error" and the disk is then unreadable. It reads other previously recorded...


This happens with a number of drives.
1. DVD Dye type - but as you have tried DVDs from a batch that works seems unlikely.
2. Some drives dont like +R or -R If using +R try -R etc. Also some drives have problems with RW's used previously
3. Drive head travel is faulty. Sometimes only recording a max of 4Gb or 90% on a disk works OK.
Good Luck

How to burn dvd and cds?


If you are using windows xp pro or windows 7, you should be able to just copy the files directly to your DVD drive under My Computer (or Computer) with a blank disk in the drive. When you are ready to burn them to the disk, right-click on the drive and choose the option to Burn to Disc.

Otherwise I also use a free option called CDBurnerXP which does a very good job.

You do not mention what type of blank DVD you are using. My personal experience is that many brands of blank DVD-R's have problems in DVD burners that are not the same brand. To a lesser extent, this also happens with DVD+R's.

The reason is that because of patents involving the technologies each DVD disc and DVD burner manufacturer has, the dye formulation of each manufacturers discs varies greatly. If this does not complicate matters enough- laser power, bandwidth, and recording schemes vary between the DVD burner manufacturers.

The safest route is to use DVD media manufactured by the same company as your burner- in your case, Sony. If you can locate blank Sony DVD+R's, they will give you the best results.

If you cannot locate blank Sony media, I have personally had the best results with TDK, Ativa, and Memorex DVD+R's and I avoid using DVD-R's because I end up throwing at least half of them away due to bad copies.

Purchased a 10 pack of dvd-rw discs, 2 work and 8 dont what to do


You won't get any satisfaction contacting memorex. Before you take them back to the store, go online and check for a firmware upgrade for your dvd/cd drive. It's also possible that your burner has a dirty lens. If you can't upgrade your firmware/driver and the lens is clean, I'd bring the pack back to the store.

What BRANDS are compatable w/ HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-T21N?


I hate to say it but memorex are the worst quality,the reason is that the drive's laser will try to adjust its power upward to burn the disk-optimum power calibration(OPC).Some burner programs display this . I have tried over 8 packets of different memorex media and results are poor ,one in five are coasters .I suspect memorex media will destroy drive lasers as running laser at top power isn't good for its life .I hate to recomend brands but tayo uden,verbatim and sony are good media but not as cheap as memorex but more cost effective!
