Emprex 16x DVDRW1116UI write error

I’ve recently bought an emprex 16x burner and can burn cds and data disks fine. when i come to burn a dvd it gets about halfway through before i get the following error:

write error
sense information
71 00 03 00 00 00 00 0A 00 00 00 00 0C 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
command
2A 00 00 12 18 10 00 00 10 00

or something similar every time .

Tried updating the firmware but the flash installer fails with an error every time.

Using windows XP and pinnacle instant CD/DVD to burn from an image file. The model is DVDRW1116UI and connects via USB.

Anyone any ideas?

Use other media and check for USB enclosure chipset (firmware) updates.

Cheers! Changed my media and it wrote fine. For anyone else reading this with the same problem Verbatim blank media worked for me!
