    Default DVD+/-DLRWL1 F16 giving illegal disk error

    Everyone,

    I have this Samsung DVD+/-DLRWL1 F16 dvd burner. Just recently it has started giving me the error of illegal disk. Following are the disks that i have tried using:
    maxell 16x - r
    memorex 16x -r
    I am running XP and using Nero.
    CD burning is working fine, no problems using the same software.

    Here is what i have done so far:
    I put the blank DVD in and it shows there is nothing in the dvd burner. The icon for the drive changes from DVD to CD.

    I cleaned up the DVD lens but no go and same problem.
    Resintalled Nero, no go
    I upgraded the bios to BWSE but no go.
    so i gave up and decided to reinstall XP on my machine.
    I reinstalled XP and i still cant burn it, it says illegal disk.
    BUT now atleast it detects that there is a DVD in there... but when i say burn... it fails. The only other thing i could think about is trying to buy another set of dvd's with 8x and see if it helps. I really dont think so but its worth to give a try.
    If anyone knows the answer, your help will be appreciated.

    I have fresh install of XP (w/SP2) and the only software i am running is nero.
    Here is the log file that shows illegal disk:

    Hi and welcome to the forum, qahsan!

    If you try to read/play a recorded DVD in that DVD Burner - does that work?

    Thanks Cynthia.
    Actually, its working now.
    As i mentioned earlier in my post that i will be trying to get the 8x, i got the 8x and it burns just fine.
    I dont know what exactly the problem is... may be 16x -R is not compatible with it. I could have tried 16x +R to see if it works... but i already wasted quite a few DVDs.....
    so yeah thanks for your help and its working great.

    If anyone else is having problems, they should try to get a slower speed DVd and see if it fixes. They dont have to reinstall NERO and/or XP.
