SOURCE: AGP 2X or 4X

if the specs say 4 then it should be 4, however you can plug an 8x in there and it will work, (as they are backward compatible)

the only thing you have to concern yourself with is the slot bars in the slot, and that they match any slots on the card you are going to insert..

If you look in your AGP slot there may be a partition in the slot...
on most newer slots there is no partition in the slot (denotes voltage) If you look on the VGA cards there is most likely TWO slots, which means that the card will fit into ANY AGP slot.. if there is only ONE slot on the Graphics card it is Voltage dependant and must match the partition on the slot (unless there isn't one)

I hope that helps

SOURCE: Unable to record on DVD-R Disc with my EWR20V4

I cannot record on my Emerson either and I am wondering what I should do at this point? Do I have to dispose of the unit and all the DVD's that I have recorded or is there an upgrade that will allow me to keep my unit and the Hundreds of DVD that I have?

SOURCE: I can't record with my DVD player on 1x-16x DVDs

This unit is too old and too basic to handle 16x speed. However, there is a firmware update for this model DVD/VCR to record on 8x.

All you have to do is call the toll-free number in your manual and request it. They will send you an update disc.

Here is the basic procedure after you receive the update disc:

1. Turn on your TV and your combo unit. The tray should be closed. The unit must be in DVD mode.

2. Quickly press the sequence CM Skip, 6, 5, 4 (This will switch it into firmware update mode. The tray will eject automatically.)

3. Insert the disc and push the tray back in.


4. The update will begin. It will take approx. 2-3 minutes. It will tell you when it is complete and eject the tray.

5. When it is done, remove the disc, but DO NOT close the tray. It will go back in later. Turn the power off.

6. Wait a few minutes and when the tray goes back in wait about another 10 seconds and then you may turn the unit back on.

Firmware update procedure is now completed.

SOURCE: Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's,

Hello hdavison
Make sure you are using compatible media ( DVD-RW ? DVD+RW ? )
Otherwise , your device is defective . A new one will kost you only a few $ or £ or € and it would be useless to submit your drive to a repair office .
Best regards

Testimonial: "fanaudi, thanks I had a blonde moment - haa! The media I tried is 4x DVD+RW. I just ordered the 2x DVD-RW discs and will see if that works."

Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...


Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

http://reviews.cnet.com/dvd-drives/sony-dru-510a/4507-3212_7-21226932.html

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

If you are asking for the information regarding the ODD here it is: DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash? drive supporting 11 formats * Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x), CD-RW (4x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVDR (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVD+R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD+RW (4x), DVD-RAM (5x) * Supports Labelflash? media to burn high quality labels directly on the disk. If not ( Cant read CD or DVD ) then most likely the lens on the ODD is already busted. or ODD cant be detected then just go to the Website support.toshiba.com and download the latest update for the ODD. And install the driver on your NB and restart the NB. If still the same then the ODD you have is already busted what you need to do is to buy a new ODD.

No read no write


One possible source of difficulty is there are different blanks for "slow" recorders (1x - 4x), "high speed" recorders (4x-10x), "ultra speed" recorders (12x-24x), and "ultra speed +" recorders. The disc manufacturers had to change the way the discs were made to accommodate each successive improvement, so older recorders don't work with the newer disks.
It is possible for some 4x-capable "slow" drives to use the "fast" blanks with a firmware upgrade, but there is no advantage to doing so since you're still limited to 4x recording (unless, of course, you're unable to find "slow" CD-RW blanks).
CD-RW discs for the faster drives are labeled with a "High Speed", "Ultra Speed", or "Ultra Speed +" logos. Make sure you buy the right blanks for your drive.

DVD Recorder tells me it cannot record on disc


You can't use 16x or anything that says 1x-16x or 1x-4x.
The 4X speed DVD-R are difficult to find. (Tried Office Depot,OfficeMax, Staples, Microcenter,Best Buy and Walgreens!) Finally found Princo brand at checkoutstore.com

I also was having same issue's with blank DVD's with 16x or higher ratings. I remembered that when I first used the recorder their was only 1-4x write speeds available so I started to look for these specific dvd's. It took me a while but I did find some and ordered a set of 25 five to try and the recorder worked.

So the issue is that the recorder will not read any dvd rated more than 4x, and the under side of the dvd's rated 8x and faster are a different color that the laser is not able to read. The dvd's are made by Philips brand rated at 1x-4x and are DVD+RW, I haven't found the DVD+R' yet but am still looking.

I found these DVD's at www.tigerdirect.com and the minimum amount was a 25 disc spindle but I think you could get 50 or 100 but am not sure so look around a bit but these will work. I put one in my DVD recorder and was formatted within a minute and was asked if I wanted to name the disc which I had not seen in a while.

Anyway you all can use your recorders again and my dad will get to use hid for the first time as he has had this problem right out of the box!!! I think the owners manuel specify's you to use 1x-4x but am not positive.
