Cakeboxes

#1

I have ordered 6 cakeboxes of 25 unbranded 800 mb CDR’s.
But when i try to burn things above 480 mb or so Nero says there isn’t enough space on the mediums.
I could really use some awnsers right now.

You ordered them in our shop?
Because I cannot see any other reason for posting it in the Forum Talk forum, where forum related issues can be addressed, so I move it to the medium forum instead.

I’m not sure it’s a media issue either, but perhaps you need to enable overburning in Nero? file - preferences - expert


#4

I don’t exactly know what i should change. But i found a checkbox with overburn disc-at-once. I checked it but i makes no difference.

BTW i bought the CD’s at cdfreaks so thats the reason i posted it here.


#5

You have to set the size of the allowed overburn, in addition to enabling overburning. Set it for 99 min.


#6

Are you burning in DAO, TAO, or SAO?


#7

???

I don’t know what you are talking about.

Sorry for my lack of thinking abilities

You are not lacking in thinking abilities, KicKiT! :smiley:

To “overburn” (which you have to do to write these CDs), you need to have the “Finalize CD” checkbox checked and the write method set to “Disc-At-Once” (DAO) on the “Burn” tab when you burn the CD. You can’t overburn using the Nero Wizard.

BTW, “TAO” means “Track-At-Once”, and SAO means “Session-At-Once”, which is the same as selecting DAO and un-checking the “Finalize CD” checkbox.


#9

Also it probably does but some burners DO NOT support overburn:confused:


#10

Good point, poacher. What drive are you using, KicKiT?


#11

MSI CD-RW MS-8348

I checked the 2 boxes en set the time at 99:00:00 and it still doesn’t work :S.

Try running the Overburning test in Nero CD Speed (on the “Extra” menu) with one of your 800MB blank discs.


#14

I just tried it but it doesn’t do shit. It seems like it doesn’t recognize is at all.


#15

Try another software,if available.Also,examine the discs,so that they don’t have the ‘hot truck’ syndrome
that cakeboxes sometimes have when they’re left in a truck too long,absorb the heat,and become’unrecordable’ because they have been ‘burned’ already by the intense heat of a closed truck with the sun bearing down on it. Just a option…


#16

how can i test them for the hot truck syndrome?

BTW I tried Nero And Alcohol 120%.
Any other suggestions?


#17

I doubt strongly if there is a ‘certified’ test for it,but one way to see is to examine your discs closely prior to burning for discolorations. That might be your first clue…Good Luck
