Burn process failed (again) pls help

hi guys/gals,

pls help
i’m at my wits end with nero,
i’ve really tried everything i can think of and still i’m getting this damn burn process failed error message after hours of waiting,
it all seems to be going fine till it gets to the ending,
then my pc starts freezing, and it takes about two and a half hours to chuck the disk out and give me my error message,
i’m using a hp 200j writer,
brand new memorex dvd+r,
updated firmware,
i’ve uninstalled all other dvd programmes that could interfere with nero and still i’m having problems,
here is the end part of the log file,
if it makes any sense to you please drop me a line and put me out of my misery,
thank you
dan

Same problem for me, have it been solved for you already?

Same problem for me also…tried Nero and firmware updation…but didn’t work…are you able to read CDs and DVDs successfully…

Yes, i can read but i can’t write,
it is a new NU-TECH DDW-081 writer,
it never worked, and nero keeps on telling me:
Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR)
some fixation problem.

  • tried to update the writer
  • treid several writing software
  • tried to switch from IDE master to slave, i removed a good working plextor cd-burner from the same cable.
  • tride several media, DVD / CD’s
  • i received a new player from my supplier, same problem

getting crazy about it!

Did you try this…got from another forum while searching…may be it will help you…

Download and run the all the Nero Clean Tools from this page.


When you have run all the Clean Tools, then Reboot again and reinstall Nero.

Install package 1,2 and 4.


You probably already have downloaded them, but you might want to download package 2 again because that is the one with NeroVision Express 2.

it seems to be the media, samsung and platinum didn’t work, plextor and imation did. so hopefully this will be solved by NU-tech asap.

hi people,

sorry i havn’t replied for so long been away,

anyway, i never got this figured out,

ended up removeing nero altogether ,

downloaded clone dvd and any dvd,

sorry i don’t have the links but they are widely avaliable,

and i havn’t looked back since,

clone dvd is superb, to say the least, it now makes me laugh when i think how much time and how many disks i’ve wasted trying to get nero to work,

clone dvd actually works, hense you will notice they don’t have to keep bringing out updates every 5 minutes unlike nero do,

it’s quick, and soooo easy,

if you take an original film dvd of say one and a half hours,i can have an exact copy working on my dvd player within an hour!

try that with nero !!!

i recommend clone dvd for anyone who wants to copy their dvd’s,

my collection is now over 100 and growing,

good luck to you all

dan :iagree:

Hey guys, it’s now 2009, 5 years after most of these posts, and Nero 8 still crashes when I try a DVD-Video, ie titles and menues. It goes for 30 min. and then bails with errmsg: Burn process failed with status 3.

It will burn CDs fine.
It will burn huge data files to DVDs fine.
It just wont let me make a simple DVD movie from several large .WMV files.
I made Nero refund my purchase price.

I have XP Pro SP3 and an NEC3550A.

Anyone know of a simple DVD-Video authoring prog?
