I am unable to write to NEXXTECH DVD-Rs in my MadDog MD-16xDVD9A2 drive. Why not? What do I need to do to solve this problem?

    I've tried other media and they all work. I've never had this problem with the Mad Dog. The discs do work on a friends computer. The NEXXTECH are 16x DVD-R and inside the spool there is a note about updating dvd drives for use with 16x dvd-r discs. Mad Dog is out of business and I can't find any driver updates anywhere.

Try different medias. If it does burn then your media is incompatible. If it does not, check your dvddrive software and hardware. You could use other burning software to check if it is software. Check the status of your hardware in device manager and bios.

Clean its lens using lens cleaner. You can uninstalled and reinstall it.Having all and still it doesn't write, then it is due for replacement.

    Well then if they run out of business, who gets their company if ever so you maybe still got some updates.

    If you are running out of an options then use much lower burn write media say 8x, and trade your remaining incompatible media.
