Burning to a dvd with nero trouble

Hi.

i’m having trouble buring to a dvd+rw (datasafe dvd 8xspeed 4.7Gb)
using _NEC DVD_RW ND-3530A.

i get the following error “illegal disk”

is it that why writer won’t work with dvd+rw?. (just brough 40 and don’t want to waste em :])

i can write to dvd-rw, tho which is strange.

i am using nero 7. and help would be great. thanks in advanced too :slight_smile:

this is my first ever post on any fourms too , where have i been hehe

Can you use neros cd speed or dvd identifier to find out the disk id code. Heres a link to a site which rates media. http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm You do not say what your burning so its hard to answer your question. added i see you just posted your nero error file!

thanks for anserwing i will do it now for you. give me a few seconds please

hope this is what you needed with (dvd identifier)

just to quickly say is the information posted about my problem enough? hope any one can help me .i’ll check sunday after 1pm cya

I’d suspect that the burners firmware just doesn’t recognise the media properly & that an update would help.
Try the 3.01 firmware from here .

Also an update to Nero would be good as the earlier version of Nero 7 were very buggy.

thanks for posting timC and i did what you suggested of updating nero and the firmware to 3.01, sorry to say no luck :[.

Yes, 8x+RW is fairly new compared to your drive, so the firmware would be the first suspect.

If you can use better rw media.

“if you can use better rw media” any suggestions?

and yea i updated firmware to 3.01 as suggested but as i said did’t work but at least now i know it’s up to date :] hehe

I’ve just had a look at the +RW media supported by the firmware. The best bet for 8x would be Verbatim or Ricoh, both of which are very good.
In the -RW type the Verbatim 6x is supported & again this is very good media.

Alternatively there is wide support for 4x +RW

Also Nero should be updated.

thanks timC i think i will go for richo :slight_smile: and chef yea i did update nero as people suggested from buggey version. so overall i did’t get to use the dvd+rw’s i have so i hope i can send then back (and got a suggested type which timC again helped out by suggesting).

thanks to chef, timC and scotton. for takeing their time to help me.

expecially timC for getting a link for firmware new version for me. very greatfully.

also if any1 goes have the same writer s me(not very lickly) you gave em a link to for firmware :]

(this will be last post thanks again for great help even tho dvd+rw’s i have can’t use.)
