Hi All,
I am new to this room. I have a question about burning speed of my Toshiba SD-R6372. My drive has specs.

  • DVD-R (Ver 2.1) (Write): 2x CLV, 2x/4x ZCLV
  • DVD-RW (Ver 1.1) (Write): 1x/2x CLV
  • DVD+R (Write): 2.4x CLV, 2x/4x ZCLV
  • DVD+RW (Write): 2.4 CLV
    I have burned some 4x DVD-R and it’s only burned at 2x CLV, not 4x ZCLV so I would like to ask how to enable ZCLV or any way to use ZCLV?
    Thank you and I appreciate for your replies.
    Anh.

I’m sure you mean SD-R5372 :wink:
Update your firmware, a new firmware was just released that supports 16x DVD-R.
As far as your “4x DVD-R” is concerned, please post the MID code so that we can have a look at it.

Thanks for your reply.
My drive is actually SD-R6372, slim drive for laptop, not for desktop as you say R5372.

My mistake!
Did you update the firmware and try again?


#5

Updated to latest firmware but nothing change!

There are many explanation for this behaviour: maybe the hdd is too fragmented to supply to bit-stream to the writer, maybe the media used is not recognised adequately by the unit or there is a speed limitation when working on batteries… try with powercord connected to AC.

Does anyone have a solution for this problem? I have exactly the same problem… it pisses me off… make me wanna drop the damn laptop from the 10th floor!!!

???

Please help.

Discs supported at lower speeds is a firmware problem!
Toshiba is slacking on the correct supported media speeds for this drive. :frowning:
You can only hope that a future firmware will better support more media at the correct speeds.

Hi Wesociety.

I just had this email from Toshiba customer support:

As I have written you at the moment the technical limitations of the SD-R6372 don`t allow to record 16x DVD media.
We have no informations if and when a new firmware version will be available to overcome these limitations.

Hmmm… I hope they wake up some time and listen to their customers.
