Toshiba SD-R5272 Problems With DVD+R 1x-16x Blank Media

I have a Toshiba SD-R5272 8x Dvd burner and recently purchased 1x-16x v1.3 Sony DVD+R blank media and my burner wont recognize this media. I only burn at 4x or 8x anyhow but is there anyway i can make this burner recognize the 1x-16x media so i can atleast burn at 4x-8x? My latest FIRMWARE is 1031 and that doesnt seem to support 16x blank media. Am i screwed with only being able to buy 1x-8x blank media? What can i do?

Welcome to cdfreaks. :slight_smile:

This drive model is more then two years old, so please don’t expect wonders. It will not burn any v.1.3 media with satisfactory results, if at all.

Supported media list (thanks to hijacker @rpc1.org).

Time to get a new drive GodZPeniZ. :wink:
