Toshiba SD-R5372 DVD Burning issue

I just recently got Nero 7 Ultra so I haven’t had a chance to test my DVD burner till recently. Problem I’m having with it is weird. I just upgraded my firmware to TU56 and I’m having issues trying to burn a DVD+R. I can burn a DVD-R just fine, although it only burned at 4x when the disc is rated at 8x. Understandable problem there, that used to happen to me all the time back when CD writers were new. I can also burn CDs just fine at 48x. Problem is, It won’t burn onto a DVD+R at all! Nero will recognize it as a blank disc and say the max speed is 8x, but when I tell it to burn the read buffer on Nero goes to full and everything just kind of sits there like the drive doesn’t want to burn. I know nothing is hanging because I can still do things and the timer on Nero is still ticking. I’ve tried this on two different DVD+Rs and I can’t think that both of them have the same problem. Here’s the log in case it helps:

Update Nero 7 in any case and try with recommended/better media!!

Well, this is a good idea, but I can’t find any updates for it. I have 7.0.0.0 and when I go to download and run the “Ultra update to 7.0.1.4b” it gives me an error that says I have to uninstall the 7.0.0.0 demo before installing the 7.0.1.4b demo. I never had the demo of Nero on my computer. Where can I get the update? I can’t find it even when I use the program I don’t see an update option that doesn’t take me to that update page that keeps downloading a demo.

Actually, ignore that. I figured out what I was doing wrong. Regardless, it still is doing the same thing. Here’s the log of the latest trial (just a few minutes ago).

SD-R5372 is finicky about media. Since your first error is a medium error, try a different type of discs. MAXELL 002 you are using is not bad media, but try one or two other brands.

When I tested this drive about 10 months ago, it made decent burns on Mitsubishi/Verbatim +R media (MCC 003, MCC 004) and Taiyo Yuden -R (TYG02) but didn’t get along well pretty much anything else.

To update Nero, some older versions have to be uninstalled before…

You may try Ricoh as well, Toshiba likes it.

My problem with this burner is that its reading some DVDs and not some, the thing is they are all the same brand Princo 4x. I know that ones that didn’t work are good because they worked on other drives and my DVD player. I have already updated the firmware, any idea what I should do?

Doesn’t sound like there’s much else you can do.

In all likelihood, the root problem of this trouble is that these discs are marginally readable, and they will only get worse over time. If I were you, I would reburn these discs on better media before they become unreadable everywhere.

Oh, and for god’s sake, don’t buy Princo media anymore. You are only encouraging them to make more cra^H^H^Hjunk :slight_smile:

I have this “dvd sd-r5372 toshiba” drive. I tried a lot of media. I updated the firmware to tu56. I still get bad disk. Nero, EASY CD, CLONE DVD blames the media.
The drive does not read all dvd.
I think its a problem with sd-r5372. My father has a Sony DVD recorder and works ok without errors.
