Help! Can't burn DVD's!



Using DVD Decrypter, I suddenly cannot burn DVD’s. I’m using Memorex 16X DVD-R’s, which have always worked in the past. I’m getting the following log in DVD Decrypter:

I’ve thought about updating firmware but am not sure how to do that…I have a DELL Dimension 5100…help! :frowning:


Try some better dvd’s… Try Verbatim, or Taiyo Yuden…


Memorex is not the best, but try to burn at half of max speed, in your case 8x.


Out of curiousity, why aren’t you using Imgburn, which is the updated burn engine portion of Decrypter?

Funny…i just gave you the same advice elsewhere.
