I wasnt sure which forum this would go in but this one seems ok.

I just purchased some 16X memorex disks to use in my 16x burner. The burner is made by iomagic. http://www.iomagic.com/Products/show_all_results.asp?ProdID=idvd16dd

There is a sticker affixed to the front of the drive that tells me to go to this site for firmware upgrades. http://www.drvupdate.com/

I originally burned a disk in it just fine but I decided to upgrade the frimware. Now the drive will not read blank 16X disks. This is getting very annoying as I cannot downgrade the firmware. The drive reads all other disks but these. Can anyone help me out here, I got all these disks and no way to burn them.

I followed some advice from that forum and found sme previous firmware updates but I kept experiencing the same problem. The drive would function ok after turning off the pc and disconnecting it then reconnect it and turn pc back on. This let me burn a 16X disk, but it would fail at some point. I have always had problems with this drive ever since I got it.
Broke down and got another one (lite-on) and it works fine. Let this be a warning to anyone looking for a new dvdrw this holiday season.
