I've had my 85Is for about 3 weeks now and I've only managed to burn 3 discs - namely 3 DVD+RW's. I tried burning the DVD+R that shipped with the drive last night, and It looks like it has burned data (the colour of the disc changed) but I put the disc in and It won't read it. I can hear the drive reading, and then going back and reading and going back e.t.c. I tried to burn a data iso disc. I'm really frustrated now as to what I'm doing wrong, and how to go about fixing it.
I'll explain my setup. I'm using Windows XP professional, Nero 6. Every time I go to burn a DVD+RW in Nero the red light goes on, it finishes up and tells me that it has burned successfully. I then go to see what is on the disc and it appears emtpy! Empty discs! I don't know how many times I've just sat there waiting for 15-20 minutes to burn 4 gigs of data only to see the disc is empty.
I've tried burning DVD ISO, UDF, UDF-ISO with various different settings and nothing has worked.
I upgraded firmware, I turned off built in CD writing in XP. I'm at my wits end! All I want to do is burn my data and back it up. I also have Stomp Record now max installed...perhaps I've messed up my settings. Still, if anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it.
