DVD Media Problems

I recently purchased some DVD media. And unfortunately it does not appear to work with my DVD burner. The media is 16x Media and usually I use 8x media. Does that mean my burner is not compatible with the 16x Media. Is there anyway to upgrade the firmware so it will work?

The DVD Burner will not burn a Memorex DVD - R . Should I purchase Verbatum or Memorex for an older model MSI DVD Burner? Or, Should I purchase Verbatum or Memorex for an older model Samsung TS H652...


You are on the right track. Every "multi-format" DVD recorder, DVD burner and DVD-RW drive I have ever owned has had problems with one type of media or another. This is because the discs all have their own patented dye mixtures, and each is a little bit different.

I have problems using Memorex DVD-R discs on my Toshiba DVD recorder. The only drive I can get good results with Memorex DVD-R's is on my Memorex DVD drive.

For DVD-R media, I have had the best success with TDK DVD-R's.So far, they have worked on all my devices.

You may want to try DVD+R media. I use Memorex Lightscribe DVD+R and for dual layer recording, I use Ativa DVD+R DL discs, both of which have worked very well and I rarely have to throw one away.

It takes allot longer, but on my PC I always use the "verify" function to make sure I get a good copy.

It is possible that you are not able to burn 16X because of the media or type of DVD that you are using now. Also were you using Toast 6 before or did you upgrade?

Nec 2500a dvd wont burn maxwell 16x dvd-r


Hello,
It could be a firmware problem, you can update your firmware but be sure to update to the latest official, stable version. If you have problems only with this type of media and all others are OK, I would recommend you to use different media.

Check the manufacturer's web-site:

for the latest 'firmware" (software that runs inside the DVD-burner) for the DVD-burner. The newest firmware should recognize more & newer media.

I can only use 8speed dvd rw when burning discs


You are most likely suffereing what most of us suffer at some time in that various DVD RW will only work with certain types of media. You may find other 16x that will work but it may be a bit of experimenting required or searching various forums to see what other users have found to work. Also is the DVD drive that you have capable of 16x at write speed?

Writes to 8x dvds but not 16x dvds. Why?


It could be lower quality media that the drive does not like for 16x writing. I would try a higher quality blank DVD. It could also be the software you are using. I recommend imgburn from http://www.imgburn.com/ which is a great little free app. This program is a very no nonsense burning app without the bloat of most other programs.

If you buy a single or 5 pack of high end media and use imgburn yet it still will not burn at 16x speeds I would contact Mad Dog as you may have a bad drive.

Phillips dvd rw 16x double capacity series


What did you uninstall if you meant the drivers then thats all you do. Rollback to the last driver. You say media burners are having a problem reading your Phillips dvd rw. Does Windows read it does windows see the drive? if it does the problem lies with the media burners though I cant quite fathom what you mean "Media Burners" are talking about Media Player 11 Nero 7 and so on ifn so this is a software problem not a hardware. Normally software is remedied like a product with drivers to run it. Hardware ahs firmware to make the hardware go.

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
