Problem burning

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On DVD Recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Lite-on dvdrw sohw 1633s double layer burner. When I try to burn avi movie to a Memorex 16x disk, I receive a message: No disk or No med:aium
I am using BurnAware.

Do you have the latest firmware for the drive?

Have you tried better media, like Verbatim or Sony 16x?

Is the drive itself recognizing the media, ie. if you go to my computer and look at the drive, does it show that a disk is present. Or is it a problem with the burning program?
No matter what though you should definitely go with the above suggestions of being sure your firmware is up to date and using good quality media is a must.
BTW- what speed are you trying to burn at?
