I’ve successfully burned about two-hundred dvd’s with Verbatim +r 1x-8x, I just bought another hundred Verbatims 16x +r’s and they will record on my standalone recorder and play back on it,but not play on my dvd player nor my computer. The computer reads as blank. (I have finalized these).
I can use the 16x if I record with +rw’s than put the rw into my computer drive ,rip,and copy to the 16x +r’s, than they will play with any of my equipment. My question is why won’t the 16x’s play on my other equipment like the 1x-8x ? I never had to recopy before these 16’s. I’ve asked this on another forum and the reply was that my standalone recorder was at fault. Think that’s so? If so than that must mean that a lot of people are going to have to buy a new recorder sense I notice so many of the blanks are now 16x. Note,the rw’s are 4x Thanks for any info.
I have for equipment:
1.standalone dvd-recorder Artec DR-re12a which has no support,but has worked well for me going on two years.
2.Philips dvd-player dvp642
3.My dvd drive I think? HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GSA-H11N
