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.

I have a TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H652H DVD/CD-ROM drive and it use to burn dvd and cd-r with no problem. I have not been using this feature for sometime and recently decided to backup my computer onto dvd-rw(s)...

> 4.37 GB

4377 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 is 4.7 times 10 (to a large power).

So, depending on if you measure as multiples of 1000 (10**3) or 1024 (2**10), you get either '4.3' or '4.7'.

Pick a collection of files of over 1GB (a CD-writable holds 700MB), and try to write to one DVD-recordable. If it works, it works, despite the "claim" that the blank disk was a CD-recordable.

Brand new one won't open

try to put needle to small hole on front face of drive, but I recommend you to take warranty and get new drive, sometimes you buy faulty new things, that is normal, when almost every hardware is made in China...

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!

Won"t see blank disc

given my experience with memorex blanks, i think that you should just switch to another brand....memorex made great tape....the cd blanks are another story. I recommend, if you can find them, FUJI blanks that are made in Japan; they have a reputation as some of the best.

Cannot read DVD from memorex 16X-DDL-IN drive.

it was corrupted, maybe because of the type of disc u are using. If it was a movie maybe you can play it with a DVD player but u can not find any file on a computer.
