3540A will burn CD's error on DVD's

Hello!

I’m new to this forum and fairly new to burning DVD’s (2 months).

Have a NEC 3540A (from NewEgg) in black. Version 1.01

Running XP SP2, gig Ultra ram, AMD XP 64 3400, dual WD 160gig 7200 spin striped @ 320 gig, Asus board, VIA chipset.

Using Nero 7 and now 1Click DVD Copy.

Have copied approx. 15 DVDs with no issues, using Memorex 16x DVD-R with no problems until now. Tried various DVD’s in the 100 stack with same results.

I’m now unable to burn a DVD (both proggies) but CD’s burn fine and verify. Same laser?

Please help! Might be a bad unit or a driver issue but it burned fine a few days ago.

I’ve included both the Nero Recode error log and CD-DVD Speed log.

Thanks!

~Eric

Welcome. :slight_smile:

Edit. Off topic information deleted. Thanks Dee-27 :smiley:

I wouldn’t use that specific media.

I read that earlier (videohelp.com) shortly after I purchased them, but find it odd that I was able to make 15+ DVD’s with no errors.

I honestly think that my burner took a dump, but am curious as to why it can still burn a CDR?

~Eric

that’s because cd and dvd have different lasers and each one can go bad independently.
but make some more checking and testing before you decide it’s gone bad(another pc,another media etc.)

I am planning on removing all traces of both burning software and trying again as documented here.

If that doesn’t work, I’ll re-install windows and give it another go (after using Windows for years, not that big of a deal!)

If neither of these fix the drive, I’ll deem it bad.

Anyhthing else I can do in the meantime?

TIA!

~Eric

An update:

Nothing seemed to work so I re-formatted XP and re-installed on Sunday.

Appears to be fine as I burned two DVD’s Sunday night and will try two more tomorrow night.

Just wish I knew what happened so that I can prevent it in the future!

I had my last install of XP for nearly a year (that’s a LONG TIME for M$!).

In the last 45 days I’ve done quite a few upgrades and have had to install numerous times. Blah!

~Eric

Just for the book, you cannot (re)format XP, you can (re)format an harddisk. :wink:

Did you use the same batch/media?

Have you performed a quality scan with them and what is the result?

chef - I wish I could re-format XP and make it better! Thinking of switching to Longhorn after a few more betas…

I’m starting to think the burning issue that I had is caused by Nero 7. I have the original release and they now have a 300+ mb “update” available. Sounds like a comprehensive re-write to me!

After re-installing XP, I could burn but Nero became VERY picky telling me that most of the blank DVD’s couldn’t be written. I also noticed that it caused “glitches” in audio cd’s in both burners (NEC & Memorex 52x CDR). Burned the same cd with the NEC using Roxio EZ 8 Studio and sound is perfect.

I have “access” to a newer rip of Nero that I may try or I’ll just re-format (the drive) again and go without Nero 7.

~Eric

More and more issues with Nero 7, apparently. :doh: It’s at least the 10th user issue I read in two weeks! :eek:

i had two of the same burners in my machine that started giving me the same trouble. I took them out and installed in different machines and they have been fine for about 2 months now. I use nero 6 ultra on all 3 machines installed from the same disk, so i didn’t think it was a nero issue, but a windows one.
