    1) Only buy 4x media. Even with the newest firmware for your burner, some 8x media can act weirdly on some older 4x burners.

    2) Try updating your firmware to the latest version. IT might help.

    3) Don't buy memorex. Big problems there, and as dvd media goes, it's as unreliable as it gets.

    Very true!

    Which ones did you get?
    1-prodisc r03
    2-Phillips c08
    3-cmc-e01

    All 3 of these manufacturers produce memorex +8x.Did you get the prodiscs?

    Have same problem, but only with Sony dvd burner. It is very fussy. If you use DVD info, sometimes you will see that there are up to 3 manufactures for discs in the same 25 pack - even with the Sony label.
    I've had best luck (so far) with) TDK and Fuji with minimal problems with Imation.

    Try using Roxio 6 to burn your movies it lets you select a speed at which you can burn.

    Ok i have a hp 300i 4x dvd writer in burns perfect to 4x maxwel but when i put in a 8x memorex it only burns about 20 min of video it burns at 4x witch is the max speed of burner
    I bout a 30 pack and only 1 burned the whole way

    When talking about Roxio, it would help to be specific which Roxio application we're talking about. There are lots of known issues with Roxio Easy CD/DVD [bold]Creator[/bold]. On the other hand, I've not heard of any problems with Roxio Easy CD/DVD [bold]Copy[/bold] and I've used it frequently without any trouble. For easy of use, I prefer it over other burning apps for simple burns (i.e., no shrink required).
