Newbie here, memorex burner question...(already searched)




I have the memorex discontinued 16x external burner

For some reason, no matter what the disk I cannot burn at 16x anymore.

I tried both nero 6 and 7, 3 varieties of recordable media, and also switching computers using both firewire and USB connectivity.

I’ve probably burned 60 DVDs @ 16x before this latest try. I updated the firmware also and that doesnt make any difference. Please help.


I would only use either Nero 6 or 7.

Otherwise it creates trouble…

To be able help you out we need more information. (Good you made a search first).

  • Please post info about media used. Put a DVD disc in your drive, goto Programs-> Nero->Nero Toolkit->CD-DVD Speed. In CDspeed choose [I]DiscInfo[/I] tab. Check your disc/-s and post as information you get on [B]MID[/B] line, (see pic)

  • Make a Transfer Rate Test on a DVD you burned. With disc in drive, choose [I]Benchmark[/I] tab, hit Start.
    When test ready save with floppy symbol at top of window (see pic) to folder of choice (in .png format).
