Burning errors

Hi all. When i try to burn a CD, i keep getting the error message, at the end of the burning process, something like “End Track Error”… It happens all the time, i used Verbatim, Sony, Kodak, ProMedia, all kinds of cd-s, because i thought it might be the quality of the cd, but it’s the same all the time. Tried lowering the burn speed also, and still the same problem. can someone tell me what is the problem?

Here is Nero log from my last try to burn a CD.

Try burning track at once instead of disc at once. Make sure it isn’t the media you’re using (as in maybe one of the songs is causing the issue).

If you know where burn speed is at you know where track at once is too. They are right next to eachother.

I am burning a movies, and, i tried your method, bu, it was already set to “Track At Once”, so i tried to set “Disc At Once”, and it worked, but, now, I am still unable to burn some of my movies, for example, i tried to burn “i Robot”, and did it once, but other time i tried there was a Write Error, so, sometimes it burns normal, and some times it has a Write Error…

Well what source are you using? DVDs? Are the right protected?

Make sure your media is good- if it’s crap you’re going to get errors.

It is a DivX media that is stored on my HD, and all the movies are working properly.

I told you, one time i burn a movie without any errors at all, and other time it has write error…

I just cannot figure out what is causing the problem, because, every time i try to burn, I use the same settings, and one time the burning ends successful, and another time it ends with a Write Error…

And, one more thing, there is no more “End Track Error” since i switched from “Track At Once” to “Disc At Once” setting…

Youhave used crap CD-RW media…

[QUOTE=chef;2286803]Youhave used crap CD-RW media…[/QUOTE]

As I wrote before, I have used Sony, Verbatim, Kodak, all top quality CD-RW media…

Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR)

This usually means your drive doesn’t like this particular media, but could be other issues as well…Try CD-Rs not RWs…Try different burn speeds…
I know this is the Ner0 forum, but maybe you should [I]try[/I] a different burning app like Imgburn, [I]just for the heck of it[/I]…
