sponsored links

 
Was wondering if u could please help me out a sec.
I usally burn my dvd+r's at 4x and it burns fine using nero burn.
But even tho i am using the same program and discs every time i try and burn at 4x it says burning failed,so i have to burn at 2.4x for it to burn, does this mean my dvd drive has problems??? Should i call hp as its still under warrenty???

Thanks for your help.

Might help if you listed what burner you were using and what media? Also which firmware version?

That is true if you are using name brand media, it isn't uncommon to get a couple of different dyes on the same brand of discs. The dye is what matters, not the name brand. For DVD+R Ricoh is the dye I would trust. You can find out which dye you have on a disc with most burning programs (I know for a fact that DVD Decrypter will do it in ISO mode). Just pop in a blank and take a look at the manufacterer's info and it will tell you which dye the disc has.
