    I just tried something, I've been using Maxell 16x dvd-r and I had just bought a new case of Memorex 16x-r and thats when I started having problems ,not right away it took a few times but now I get the write error when Clonedvd is ready to write the disc. I still had a few Maxells and tried and this time no error. Does anyone know what this may be?

    Memorex

    There may have been a time when the "Is it live or is it Memorex?" was true, but these days Memorex DVDs are known as "coasters". I have even had problems on some of their CD-R media. Do a search for Memorex (above) and you will see that is a majority opinion.

    As mmdavis is saying (who I agree with here) . . .
    Not all Memorex is bad, but a lot is a bit sketchy. The same can also be said for Maxell's commercial stuff.

    However, Maxell media that's made in Japan is very good.

    Media codes would help make a deciding opinion a little better than simply stating Maxell or Memorex.

    You may also want to update your burner's firmware.
