DVD +/- cant recognize blank dvd's

vbimport

#1

Hi guys, my dvd burner refuses to recognize blank dvd’s so that i can burn them. I have tried nearly everything, and posting here is my last resort before buying a new one. I have even formatted my hardrive, which included updating my firmware. The drive can burn cd-r and cd-rw perfectly and can even read official dvd’s, but for some odd reason it refuses to burn them. Any help is appreciated.
Here is a little info I pulled from my Nero InfoTool 2.21:

Drive : HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B
Type : DVD±R/RW DL Recorder
Firmware Version : 1.I0
Buffer Size : 2 MB
Date : 05-09-21

What type of media are you using? TBH, the drive is getting a little long in the tooth and probably just can’t cope with newer media, if that is what you are using, and it might time to just move on and get a new drive vs. pulling your hair out trying to get this one to cooperate. Quality drives can be had for $30-$40 nowadays.

You could check for a firmware update here, but I’m unable to get the link to open to check for you.

im using memorex dvd-r and and sony dvd+rw


#4

try better quality media


#5

sony isnt good enough?


#6

@ Dem504waves,

Don’t be fooled by thinking that a recognized advertised “Name Brand” means quality. Unfortunately both Memorex and Sony branded Media is suspect problematic poor quality Media.

Suggest obtaining known proven quality Media such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media that has a proven track record of providing consistent quality error free results.

Ok and how would i go by resetting my DMA…cause the option isnt available in my device manager.
Here are some ss, to show you what I mean.




Do you have a walkthrough available?..thnx!


#9

Resize that images…

Search on the m$ support page for “DMA problems”.


#10

Ok, its in dma mode but still wont burn…i went ahead and ran the nero general cleanup…but after nero was gone, i used img burn, but to no avail…
Help pls :frowning:


#11

@ Dem504waves,

As suggested in posting #6 did you stop using the known suspect problematic poor quality Memorex and Sony branded Media and obtain known proven quality Media such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media that has a proven track record of providing consistent quality error free results?

Regards,
bjkg


#12

Darnit, i sent my girlfriend out to radioshack and told her to get me some verbatim dvd-r and not only did she bring back memorex DL dvd+r she opened em on the way home…
This is getting fustrating, do you guys think that its really the cd’s?


#13

@ Dem504waves,

Suggest reviewing postings #4, #6, #11 concerning the use of known proven quality Media.

As previously stated both Memorex branded Media and Sony branded Media have a rich well-documented history of being poor quality problematic Media.

If you desire consistent quality error free DL results Verbatim DL MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media has a proven track record of providing quality error free results. Unfortunately all other DL Media is considered suspect and should be avoided.

Perhaps it would be beneficial for you to research know proven quality Media by reviewing the CD Freak Blank Media Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f33/).

@ Dem504waves,

Suggest ambling over to NewEgg (http://www.newegg.com) and check out the Pioneer DVR-115D.

The Pioneer DVR-115D is an excellent DVD Burner and it just loves Taiyo Yuden Media. If interested CD Freaks has a review of the Pioneer DVR-115D ->

http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/Pioneer-DVR-115D-DVD-Burner-Review

With the recent release of updated Pioneer DVR-115D Firmware the Pioneer DVR-115D is an even better performer than it was when the CD Freaks Review was originally written. Suggest reviewing the Disk Quality Scan thread at the CD Freaks Pioneer DVD Burner Form view the performance results of the Pioneer DVR-115D ->

http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/pioneer-dvr-115-post-your-scans-questions-here-232284/

Also instead of purchasing DVD Media from Radio Shack suggest visiting Rima.Com (http://rima.com) to purchase your Media. In many circles Taiyo Yuden Media is considered top of the line quality error free Media and Rima.Com (http://rima.com) is an excellent source of Taiyo Yuden Media.
