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?

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?

Recommended Media When Using the VRD-MC3


OK, I purchased this device in order to tranfer/preserve stacks of old 8mm and VHS tapes to DVD, quickly, without any desire to perform any editing. I have created several DVD's using the PC and find this to be extremely time consuming, although you have total editing control. I started out with the VRD-MC3 using Memorex inkjet printable DVD+R (16X) blank media (not on Sony's suggested media list) and met with limited success. Was using SP mode in order to get 2 hrs worth of tape on to 1 DVD. After awhlie I started experiencing the dredded "finalize disc" errors, which it couldn't do after sitting there for 2 hrs, and ended up with a few coasters. In talking with Sony, they felt this was most likely attributable to bad media and recommend using a few different brands such as their own, TDK, Verbatim, Maxell. So, I thought I'd try Sony DVD+R (1-16x) blank DVD media and gave it a try, feeling that if it didn't work well with their own media, then it most likely wouldn't do well with any other brand either. I have met with success using this media and had no problems recording tapes that produced coasters the first time. Overall I'm happy with this product but it's finicky and seems to work best if you stick to using Sony's products.

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.

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.

1) Do not pay attention to speed burning, in my opinion the slower the better.

2) the burner may be dusty, buy a dry dvd lens cleaner and use it.

3) try other media like Verbatiom or Teac and compare results.

4) the lifespan of any burner (depends on use) is about 18 months (my nec 7170-AD stopped working after 10 months), you may have exeded the life span of your burner, replace with new one.

well what you can try is
1.) Cleaning your registery out
2.) deleting all temp files
3.) defragmenting your registery

to do all the above you can use a product know as tune up utilities aviable here www.phazeddl,com type yune up in the search box and search it

4.) defragmenting your harddrive
to to this go into my computer
right click on local disc and click properties.
clicl tools the defrag

5 delete your preftech files
they are located in c:\windows\prefetch

6 empty your recycle bin

7 restart


ensure you have 16x media and your burningspeed is set to 16x

4x media means you can only burn at 4 8x at 8 or below, 16x at 16 or below

if all fails then you need to format and reinstall
