Successful burn, but no play

this may be in the wrong place, but I am so fed up! I have a Toshiba ODD-DVD SD-R6252 DVD burner that is in my HP laptop. At first it didn’t work for burning DVD’s, but after upgrading to 1A14 firmware it started to burn great. I have always used Memorex DVD+R. But more and more with each pack I buy I get less and less “good” discs. No matter what software I use to burn, Nero, IMGBURN, DVD Decrypter and they all burn and say successful. Then I put it in the PC or my standalone player and it just says it is a blank disc. But on the bottom you can see it is written on. Sometimes in IMGBURN it will say unable to recover TOC. could this be “Cheap media”? Or is it something more serious? Please help.

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Actually it can be a cheap media. Memorex have low and variable quality.

Can you try to burn a better media like a verbatim? Moreover, what media are these exactly? What mediacode? And at what speed did you burn these discs?

What max burning speed is able your drive? If you use 16x media with a 8x burner, you can obtain very bad results.
