Can't burn CD's on DVR108

Hi,

I could not find anything relevant in the forums… My DVR108 burns DVD’s but fails when I try to burn simple data CD’s (with images). When I set the speed to x4 it burns successfuly but cannot read the disc. I tried two different media types.

It was not like that in the past, but I have no idea what has changed.
I am using Nero 6. Log is attached below.

I’d appriciate any advice.
Thanks!

Try with better media, also at lower speeds.

Thanks for the advise, I’ll give it a try…

what is the best/supported media types for this burner? I already tried two types (probably not the best in the market…)

Maybe Verbatim and Sony and TDK. There are so many available…

I got the verbatim CDR’s. I also opend and cleaned the lens. It is working better now. I manage to burn CD’s up to 16X. Cheers!

Still when I tried to burn on 32X it failed with write error. I am attching the log (fitered out some duplicated info). It is not urgent anymore. I am curious what has gone wrong… it used to work.

At least progress.

Some brands are just of mixed quality and some should be avoided.
