Trouble burning DL (Optiarc AD-5170S)



[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the Optiarc AD-5170S. Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]I have used this drive to burn memorex 2.4X R DL discs before.  I just purchased memorex 8X R DL discs and have not been able to burn one without it crashing the software.  I have tried both Nero and DVD Copy. Any ideas?


@ The-not-so-brave,

Welcome to the Forum.

Yea – Don’t use Memorex DL Media.

It has been passed numerous times throughout the Forum that the only DL Media that consistently produces quality error free results is Verbatim MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media. ALL other DL Media is considered suspect and should be avoided (not used).
