It is quite important to regularly update the firmware of your DVD recorder to broaden the compatibility of different media types and improve burns
Firmware updates can significantly improve the recording quality of your recorder and add compatibility for more DVD±RW media. Basically the firmware contains a database of media types and the settings/tunings for the specified media, that the recorder will use as you burn discs.

Typically if the disc is unknown to the recorder, the recorder will apply a generic recording tunings, which often leads to sub-optimal burn quality and/or less than maximum recording speeds.

Usually the firmware update procedure involves downloading a firmware updater software manufacturer, running the updater and rebooting the PC after the procedure is complete.

You can use Nero Info Tool to check what firmware you currently have.
