Welcome to CDF, BewilderedOne
It could be the media, since two drives are exhibiting the problem.
Can you put one of the discs into your drive, download and run CD-DVD Speed, and go to the “Disc Info” tab.
There you’ll find the MID (Media ID) - that’s the info I’m after. Thanks

Hmmm, that usually works OK for me, but I don’t have the same drive.
What burning software are you using?
If it’s Nero, try another burn, and if it fails, it should prompt you to save an error log. Save it as a txt file, open it up and take out your serial number, and post it here.
Well now I’m really confused I’ve been fighting this thing for months now and its never worked I didn’t do anything different this time and it just works. lol whatever. A couple of questions anyhow i guess I’ve got a modified xbox that is able to read most video and audio types how do I burn a dvd with just regular video and audio files…like one with mpeg, mp3 avi and such? I kept trying to get it to burn udf and it wouldn’t burn. also can you convert divx movies to a video dvd that will play in standalone players? I imagine I’ll be back here in a couple of days cause i’ve been fighting this thing suddenly when I’ve got some help bam it works great
Don’t know about the first question, but converting DivX files to DVD-compliant ones can be done. I use ConvertXtoDVD for this, but there’s a thread here that might interest you
appreciate your help man sorry to waste your time I dunno what suddenly changed this stubborn sobs mind lol later
Hehe, at least you know the drive’s not toast
