If you can see the drive in my computer, then the hardware is working, if not then it needs usb2 to recognise the drive, but usb1.1 will more than likely cause buffer underun and not allow the dvd to burn.

You will also need atleast 512MB to 1GB of memory to keep up with the software.

Yes that could be a problem but the only net effect is a slower speed. When you plug in the Burner does your computer detect it? Does it come up on My Computer? if it does try to do a burn using the Windows XP utility. When you open a folder you should have an option to click on write files to CD. If that works then unistall and reinstall the Nero

    To bypass a buffer underrun problem you could just set the drive to burn at a lower speed such as 4X or 6X for a CD and 2X for DVD

How to erase a dvd dics


dvd are read only.
dvd-r; dvd+r and dvd-rw are the re-writeable discs. mostly once only.

DVD Media Formats Explained
There are many different types of writable and rewritable DVD media on the market today. These formats include:
There are also "General Purpose" and "Authoring" discs. DO NOT confuse the "Authoring" media with the term for content development (making / editing what eventually goes on the DVD). The most common type of DVDR is the General Purpose type - if you do not know that you have an actual authoring recorder drive then you most likely have the general purpose type.

DVD-R is a write-once recordable format which allows excellent compatibility with both standalone DVD-video players and DVD-ROM drives. There are two main types of 4.7GB DVD-R discs: DVD-R for General Use and DVD-R for Authoring. Most consumer drives use the former cheaper General Use discs, while many higher end professional drives use Authoring discs. The correct media type appropriate for the drive must be used when burning. However, once burned, the discs should be able to be read in either drive type. (General Use DVD-Rs are designed to prevent backup of encrypted commercial DVDs).

DVD-RW uses rewritable discs which are rated at more than 1000 rewrites in ideal situations. Unfortunately, DVD-RW does not enjoy the same excellent compatibility with DVD-ROM drives and standalone DVD-Video players that DVD-R enjoys. Another drawback is that unlike DVD-RAM, one must generally erase a DVD-RW disc before reuse.

Most DVD-RW drives should also be able to record to DVD-R. However, the reverse is not true. Many older and some current DVD-R drives are not capable of writing to DVD-RW discs (but may be able to read burned DVD-RW discs). Some drives can also record to CD-R and CD-RW.

Currently DVD-RW and DVD-R are most popular in the multimedia market as well as the general consumer market. For instance the Apple SuperDrive, found in higher end Mac computers used in multimedia creation, is simply a DVD-R/DVD-RW (and CD-R/CD-RW) capable drive.

DVD+RW, like DVD-RW, is a rewritable 4.7GB DVD format. DVD+RW, however, in some ways offers some technical advantages, which for example include: lossless linking (which in turn more readily allows editing of a disc's contents after an initial write while maintaining integrity of the remaining data), currently slightly faster recording speeds, and optional future Mount Rainier drag-and-drop file access support (also known as DVD+MRW). However, DVD+RW does not have the very high compatibility with standalone DVD-video players and DVD-ROM drives that the DVD-R format enjoys. The level of compatibility of DVD+RW is said to be similar to that of DVD-RW. Also, DVD+RW does not currently have the same level of market acceptance as DVD-R.

DVD+R is a format that only was introduced to the public very recently (early 2002). DVD+R is a write-once 4.7GB format which promises to dramatically increase the compatibility with standalone DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives. Whether that claim is fulfilled remains to be seen, but initial reports have been very positive. It must be noted, however, that 1st generation DVD+RW drives do not support DVD+R burning, and it is likely that most cannot be upgraded to do so either. If one wishes to have DVD+R burning functionality, one must purchase a newer drive specifically designed to do so. DVD+R discs currently are somewhat more expensive than DVD-R discs, but prices will likely drop with time. Burners that write to these discs is the HPDVD100i and the DVD-Writer DVD200i drive

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean


Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

I have downloaded and burned the version 5.50 both to cd-r & dvd-r the .exe and iso and still get a no title screen and no update what am i doing wrong?


  • It is recommended to use CD -R disc to create the firmware update disc.
  • I hope you're clear with downloading the update from support page.
  • Once you download and save the file in the folder in the computer, you can double click the file to extract.
  • You will be prompted to save the UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0550.ISO file in a folder.
Most of the customers will be making mistake here after...
We need to use a burning software which is capable to burning discs from ISO images. ISO image is nothing but a RAW format of burned image.
I will give you the instructions to burn using Nero.. Steps will be almost same in all ISO capable software.
Open installed nero software from computer. You may locate it under Start Menu programs.
Go to File Menu (Some times you will get a wizard where you can select the Image Burning option or burn ISO option)
Navigate the extracted .ISO file we saved in the computer.
follow the onscreen instructions.
Insert the disc when ever Nero asked to insert
Hope this helps. If you need any assistance. Please get back to me. I will be more than happy to assist you. Thanks for understanding.

What would cause discs burned recently on my Masterlink to not playback on others CD players?


Good day sir/ma'am hi, its a reality that not all CD players are alike, the burning of the CD which can't be read by other CD players can be caused by the following:
  1. quality of CDR and CDRW.
  2. lens compatibility.
  3. speed of writting and rewritting.
  4. scratches and marks on the CD.
  5. playback circuit that reads the CD.
  6. DIstance of the lens.
  7. manufacturers use different formats and methods of burning. and alot more.
For as long as the CD you burn on your masterlink can be played on itself, your fine. You can try burning the CD on the PC for more compatibility on the CD player.

Hi, most of these value packs will have some disk that are simply flawed in there design and will not pertain to the burner that you are using. The DVD-R will work best with many players. I would also downgrade the speed and disk type to a x8 or x4. this will ensure stability during the finalization process. Another issue may be that the nero software could be becoming unstable due to some corruption issue within the program file folder(base). i would un-install nero then, de frag the main HDD then, reinstall the nero program. this should fix this issue along with downgrading the speed of the disks and rom drive to x8 or x4.

Please rate and god bless:)

To play mpeg4 with philip dvp5960


I resisted this conclusion for years before I finally got smart and purchased Nero - it will convert your mpeg files to VOB format, at which point you can burn a DVD-video that the Philips player will recognize.

Now, there are other options. If the files are either MPEG-1 or MPEG-2, you can burn them as a Video CD, if the files are smaller than 800MB.

What you cannot do is burn the files as a Data DVD or Data CD - the player just isn't capable of recognizing data discs.

You can try downloading several free programs to convert the MPEG's to VOB format, but, in the end, you will probably just end up infesting your computer with malware/spyware/etc.

My professional opinion is to go ahead and purchase Nero or Roxio to do the job.

Bd p1400


The latest upgrade is ver 1.9. It is a downloadable ISO in zip file format. Samsung recommends Nero to burn this. Burn this to a CD-R not a DVD. I also suggest burning at a slow speed... IE 10x and trying high quality media IE .... Verbatim. 90% of the problems are related to poor quality media or too high a burn speed. This disk has to be highly accurate for it to work correctly. I've updated over 40 of these particular players.

Just purchased a LG External Super Multi DVD Rewriter, 20X write speed. When I try to install the USB booster, I get an error message that says "Copy file failed." Each attempt to reinstall the...


The LG USB Booster (Hitachi-LG) software is poorly implemented and is easily upset if it finds any conflicting USB devices when it scans for the drive you want to use the booster for.

Unplug all USB storage media except the drive that is intended for use with the USB booster software, then install (ignore the error mentioned earlier in this thread if it appears - it appears to be a problem with the updater.exe program) Next, run the "BoosterProgram.exe" which should be located in the "C:\Program Files/LG USB Booster" folder.

All being well you should now have the option to enable the USB Booster feature.
