I’ve been browsing these forums from time-to-time over the years but recently a problem’s cropped up which I can’t figure out and I’m turning to you guys for help!
The problem I’m having is regards to burning DVD’s. I have a Pioneer A07XLA burner and in the past I’ve backed up my hard drive with 8x Verbatim DVD+R’s. (This media has an ID of MCC 003 by the way). Around March, I ordered some more (of the same) disc’s and I’m in the process of doing the same thing. However, I keep getting burning problems. Nero (126.96.36.199) is saying the burn and verification of the files were successful but when I enter the DVD in the drive, it’s not recognised as having any data on it. I used up some spare Verbatim Pastel discs (Taiyo Yuden dye) and they were fine. I thought I had a bad batch of media so I popped into town and bought some Sony DVD+R’s but I keep getting the same problem.
I’m using the lastest firmware for the drive (v1.21) and these are the settings I have selected in Nero:
ISO 9660 + Joliet
Max. of 11 = 8 + 3 chars (Level 1)
ISO 9660 (Standard ISO CD-ROM)
Allow path depth of more than 8 directories
Allow more than 255 characters in path
Allow more than 64 characters for Joliet names
(Finalise DVD ticked but greyed out)
(Disc-at-once ticked but greyed out)
These are the same settings used to burn the TY discs (which were fine) and the MCC discs (which weren’t). Any suggesions please because this is really starting to annoy me now. I’ve been through 5-6 discs!
Anyway, thanks in advance!
(Oh and just to note, my firewall and antivirus is off and no programs are running in the background.)
