#1

Ok so I bought a Samsung TS-H552B 16x DVD-r+rw from Microcenter today. Installation was a breeze. Now when I try to burn a dvd with Nero Updated it wont let me burn at 16x! I have 16x OfficeMax DVD’s and a 16x DVD burner… Whats going on here???

CPU Specs:
1.) Asus a7n8x-e Deluxe
2.) AMD Athlon XP 2800+
3.) 600 Watt Psu
4.) 1 GB Corsair XMS RAM (PC3200)
5.) e-Vga 6600gt
6.) Samsung TS-H552B 16x DVD-r+rw

Check for an updated firmware for your burner. It’s possible that your media isn’t recognized and that’s why you can’t select 16X.

Its probably the media- You should try verbatin which I think are on sale for $15 for 50 at office max and Im sure you will get better result -also with a firmware update. Good luck.

Actually office max 16x dvd’s may be mcc (same as verbatim) or they could be cmc. Use dvd identifier to find out what they are. I would agree, try updating your firmware.

Most likely yes. You may want to check the Samsung DVD sub-forum here, as there is probably a lot more information there.
