These DVD-Rs support fast write speeds of up to 16X and provide up to two hours of recording time. Having Writing Errors or Can't Burn the DVDs?
Most writing errors are likely caused by older or out-of-date firmware on DVD burners. For optimum performance, we recommend that you check your DVD burner and update the firmware if needed:
DVD-R: Quality Media Storage
Users with Stand-alone DVD burners
Users with Laptop and PC
- If your system is less than four years old, you likely have a compatible writer and firmware. (If you cannot write to the blank media, ensure that you have a DVD writer and not a disc reader.)
- If your system is more than four years old, update your firmware from the PC/Laptop manufacturer's website.
DVD-R is a Write-Once format, which means you can read the files many times, but you cannot record over them or edit them. This format is ideal for sharing videos, organizing your media library, or archiving important business or personal data. Made of durable materials, these DVD-Rs provide a permanent lifetime storage for all those files you want to save. DVD-Rs are compatible with most standard DVD readers, which means that after you burn your favorite videos to a DVD-R, you can play them back on most DVD players. With 4.7 GB of space on each disc, you can store up to two hours of standard video. 16X Write Speed: Quick and Convenient
AmazonBasics DVD-Rs enable fast write speeds up to 16X (burn speed will fluctuate) for quick, clean data transfer. To take full advantage of these speeds, your DVD burner must burn at speeds of at least 16X. Consult your computer or DVD burner product manual for this information. At 16X, transfer speed translates to 21.60 MB/s, which means that you can burn a full disk in less than four minutes. The organic dye used on the write side of these DVD+Rs provides stable writing at high speeds for reliable, accurate finished disks. Quality construction minimizes errors and improves performance. DVD-R vs. DVD+R
There are two types of recordable DVD disks available. Almost all recent DVD players and drives can handle both burned DVD-R and DVD+R disks, but some older players can only read one format or the other. It is important to check your player’s manual to determine which DVD type it supports. Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging
