Toshiba odd/dvd sd-r6252

Burning a DVD


I have a Compaq Presario R3000 and would like to burn a DVD. I have a Toshiba ODD/DVD SD-R6252 burner. I’ve successfully burt DVD’s before with a slide show software and Roxio so I know I CAN burn. I know I burnt on Memorex but can’t remember if they were +/- R DVD’s. I know they were NOT RW’s. I don’t remember the write speed either.

I’ve since ran out of those DVD’s and bought 3 different brands both +/-R and when I go to burn… a window pops up that says “read only disk”.

What do I need to do to make this work again? I believe I have the latest firmware update.


Make sure that you do not have virtual drive software like Alcohol, Daemon Tools, CloneCD/DVD installed.
You could also try some other media: Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim are (IMO) the most compatible ones. :slight_smile:
