Updating your PC DVD burner's internal firmware generally improves its ability to recognize and work reliably with more brands of discs. See your manufacturer's support pages for latest free downloadable firmware updates. Our "Disc Finder" page linked near the top of our first page also provides links to many of these firmware updates for popular DVD burners. If you have compatibility problems with a particular disc brand, firmware updates usually solve the problem.

SOFTWARE UPDATES AND CHOICES
Once you've installed the latest drive firmware, then upgrading your DVD burning software, such as Nero, Roxio, uLead etc., to the latest version (from your software maker's web pages) can usually improve your drive's performance with many brands of DVD+/-Rs. Also, you may want to try another software, since some software simply supports one or two drives and disc brands better than others. A little experimentation between leading software programs can save you a lot of time and frustration. See our Ã¯Â¿Â½DVD Recordable FAQ page for DVD software recommendations and links.
