hey guys, i have problems burning data on these Memorex DVD+R DL

here’s the details of one of the disks


Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R-DL:RITEK-S04-066]

Disc & Book Type : [DVD+R DL] - [DVD+R DL]
Manufacturer Name : [Ritek Corp.]
Manufacturer ID : [RITEK]

Recording Speeds : [2.4x , 3.3x-8x]

[ DVD Identifier V5.0.1 - http://DVD.Identifier.CDfreaks.com ]

wether on nero or ashampoo, i can’t burn anything on them. when i start the burning process, it takes 2 or 3 seconds and then tray ejects the DVD.

i have in the past been able to burn data on DVD+R DL from Memorex (not always successfuly, it would work 2 out of 3 times).

here’s the detail of the disks i am able to burn

Strongly recommend that you only use Verbatim for DL burning & because of the age of the drive, 2.4X only. You could also give ImgBurn a shot.

thanks barley, i’ve tried making an image of my files and then burn it but it still won’t burn, even when using imgburn.

apparently i’m not the only one with this problem, and i can’t even return those damn disks (they were brought to me from abroad).

(…) [/quote]LG4163B A106 does not support this media.

These MIDs are supported:


DVD+R9   supported media types:    7
------------------------------------------
INFOME   D01-000 2.4x
MKM      001-000 4x,2.4x
MKM      003-000 2.4x
PHILIPS  CD2-000 2.4x
RICOHJPN D00-001 4x,2.4x
RITEK    D01-001 2.4x
RITEK    S01-001 2.4x

So your only chance are Verbatims.
