Higher speed of 16X. Are we talking CD or DVD here? !6X is fast for a DVD but not for a CD.

I gave up using Bulkpaq a long time ago, too many failures, but that was DVD-R.

As Thendar asked, what exactly are you trying to do? Write a video to a disk as a pure data file or create a VCD or DVD like menu system?

Depending on what he is using to write with (Nero etc) it should tell him that there is a problem before it allows him to write. For example, file too large.

It seems that he is getting past that stage.

It might be the "lead out" that it is failing on. Some discs just don't like some writers.

Have you updated your writers firmware recently?

Answer this one question.

We understand that you are burning the video file to the cd. What method are you trying to use it as. Is it strictly a data cd (aka not something to be played in a dvd player, just used on the pc) or is it something you want to play on your dvd drive and all?
