Philips DvdRW1640 problem

Hi,

I have recently purchase a Philips DVDR1640 and 4x Memorex Dvd-R media to accompany it. The problem is that I cannot seem to write DVDs.  On my first try, the writer ejected the media at %15 with Burn Failure error, and on the second one, Nero crashed completely. Another interesting problem is that, shouldn't I be able to select the writing speed? The speed available for selection on Nero is only 4x. There is something interesting going on here. Any ideas?

Have you tried using another DVD-R (another writeable CD?) if not than give it a try may be it's due to bad media

Your drive may be faulty.  Can you try a different program, to see if it fails to burn properly and limits your burn speed?  If it fails, you should return the drive.

Hi onurt,
well the 4x limitation is because the media is limited to 4x. Have you tried to burn something different to test if maybe the dvd files you are trying to burn, one of them might be corrupt. Have you tried cd to cd to see if that works. If thats the way you are trying to burn then check and see if the original dvd has alot of scratches.

Good Luck!

Make sure your computer meets all the system requirements for your software and close all applications that can be closed, before you burn.  Sometimes, applications like virus scanner will kick in while you're burning and cause hiccups.
