Burning result is a blank dvd

vbimport

#1

I am trying to back up some DVDs and the result is blank DVDs.
1click says burn successfull though.
I use

NEC ND3450A
Iomega 422-INQ-D

With Verbatim DVD

I have noticed the same thing happen when I burn Data DVD with nero… DVD comes out Blank…

Any Idea???


#2

How do you know it’s blank? If you start Windows Explorer, will that show that there is something on the disc or not?


#3

first - DVD looks unburnt
2nd - When I put the burnt dvd in one of the drives, it starts spinning, then stops, I can see the light of the drive showing running… at that stgae if I start window explorer Its crashes windows

You  -really- need to consider replacing that Old  DVD/RW Drive

Let's check something .....

Go to > Start > My Computer

What do you have selected for the "Action to Perform" for [B]'DVD Movie[/B]" ?
This should be set as "[B]Take no action[/B]"
OR 
Set only for your DVD Player ( WinDVD/Power DVD ) 
- [B]be sure to close your 'Player' before opening 1Click [/B]

What do you have selected for the "Action to Perform" for [B]'Blank CD"[/B] ?
This should be set as "[B]Take no action[/B]"



While here in the DVD Drive  'Properties" 
Do you have a "DLA" tab ?
= [B]Disable[/B] DLA

Here's some Help - with maybe ... reducing the load .... 

I'd recommend that you [Try using EnditALL while Copying/Burning](http://forum.lgsoftwareinnovations.com/showthread.php?t=15256)
... to free up your resources 
... You might be surprised at what's running - in the background 


Open [Advanced Windows Care Personal](http://www.iobit.com/AdvancedWindowsCarePersonal/index.html)> Tools > Start-Up Manager 
( it's completely free and a very recommended clean-up program ) 

You will be presented with a listing of the Programs 
 - Programs that  are designated to Start-Up with Windows 
- and Descriptions of Each ( Click on Selection ) 

Any  Start Up Entry - Referring to any DVD/CD Software ? 
Windows Media Player ? 
ITunes ? 

If So = UN Check  it 

This only Disables  the Program - from the List 
- Designated to 'Start-Up' - with Windows 
You would - still - be able to 'manually' start the Program(s) - when needed 

Also ...... 
UN Check  anything - Not Trustworthy 
UN Check  anything - Not Necessary or Not Preferred 
( you may  click on an Start-Up item > Select Disable - If you prefer ) 
>> Apply 
> Reboot 


or  -
You could  also , Go into Msconfig - and Deselect unneeded Programs 
- from your 'Start Up"
This will help a lot .....
