Upgrading 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.
NOTE -- Older 2.4x plus writers may not recognize 8x discs until their firmware is updated. Upgrading your drive's firmware (see our CHECK YOUR BURNER link on the front page) generally improves performance, speed and reliability with blank DVD+Rs. Most firmware updates can be downloaded from Firmware-Flash.com. Once you've got the latest drive firmware, then upgrading your DVD burning software to the latest version (from their web pages) can usually improve your drive's performance with many brands of DVD+/-Rs. Also, 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.
