2510A doesn't recognize certain media

I bought new LG DVD-Rs 1-16x.
The older 1-8x were recognized and worked fine, but these aren’t. Nero won’t burn them. I also had this problem with Philips DVDs but when I upgraded to the 2.18 firmware they worked fine.

The LG DVD-Rs are recoznized on my other computer’s sony DVD writer.

What do I do apart from buying other media? How can I be guaranteed that the other media would work fine?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to CD Freaks.

You could try some modded firmware which will recognise some of the latest 16x media. Try 205C or 2A5C from here .

There is a guide available there to help with flashing if you need it.
