Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

We need a lot more detail to be able to help you:

Brand and rated speed of DVD-Rs that don’t work
Software used
Operating System
Burn speed.

Also, telling us about any error messages would be good.

:wink:

OK, since that burner only supports DVD-R at up to 8x, have you looked for the latest firmware update?

Also, using some other media, such as Verbatim or Sony may be a good idea (as their 16x discs may be supported in the burner’s firmware at 8x).

Or, a better idea would be to switch to using DVD+R, as the burner supports these at the full 16x - as I just suggested, try some Verbatim or Sony. :slight_smile:

Try switching to Sony or Verbatim DVD+R first, and see if that solves your problem :slight_smile:

If you still can’t burn after changing your media, then we can look for a firmware update.
