Hi hajiwon...

Sounds like your machine doesn't care for the TDK media. I've had machines that didn't like TDK, too, but most other media brands work fine. Try another brand or stick with the Memorex. I've found Sony media to be pretty reliable in most systems.

i brought memorex 16x DVD-R discs today since the 16x were the only ones i saw... i tried burning with those and it still doesn't work.

i don't know how to update the drive so it'll be compatible with the 16x disc... i went to the memorex site but still couldn't find the right update

What speed are you trying to burn at? Perhaps turning the burn speed down a bit will set things right.

Open "My Computer" and right click on the cd burner...choose "Properties". Under the "Recording" tab, select a slower speed from the drop-down menu and "Apply" the change.

^actually i spoke to a memorex representative and he said that my dvd burner cannot burn dvd-r 16x b/c it's a true8x brand... they said i would have to use dvd+r to be able to use 16x discs...

thank you wannabe1 for helping me out, i really appreciate it :whistling:
