Cant burn, help plz

Hey, ive been tryin to get all my divx files burned to DvD so i can clear up some memory. But for some reason i’ve been havin some problems. Roxio doesnt work, ive tried numerous shareware burning software with no positive results and finally decided to buy Nero 7 Ultra and the first disc i try to burn fails… Anyone help me out? here is the error report (obviously its much longer than this, but this is the last section where it failed. It seemed to transcode fine but failed when attempting to burn the DvD.

If anyone could help me out i’d be greatful, thanks

Hi, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

From the “[KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR]” it would appear that it’s possibly a media problem at first glance.

What brand of discs are you using? Can you find CD-DVD Speed in the Nero Toolkit, put one of the discs you’re using in the drive, go to the “Disc Info” tab, and post the “MID” info for us?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Thx for the welcome and the reply :D. Im using C2Tech DvD -R discs, the “Mid” info is TYG02. Any help ya could offer me would be awesome! thanks

TYG02 is a Taiyo Yuden (excellent Japanese media manufacturer) media code, but as I’ve never heard of it under the C2Tech brand before, I’d be inclined to assume it’s fake (TY MIDs are often faked to “improve” burns of so-so discs) :frowning:

What I would suggest is this: try some Verbatim branded discs (HP branded 16x -Rs, and 8x HP discs are good too, or Sony) and try again. :slight_smile:

Ah ok, well ill go pick up some different discs tommorow night and ill let ya know how it goes. Thanks a ton!

I like the new Memorex media. It is a lot better since they are using Ritek.

If you have had this problem, with various programs then you have some bottle neck in your system the best thing to do reformat your hard drive and fresh install windows and Nero 7 see if that resolve your problem.

Ok, i bought some Memorex 16x DVD-r and i succesfully burned a DvD :D, but now when i went to burn a seccond one im getting an error telling me to insert a blank disc, when there is a blank disc in the drive. I’ve tried to restart the burn process with a different disc etc. and cant get it to go past creating menu’s before it tells me the same thing. Before i begin to burn it said there was more PAL data than NTSC data and asked if i wanted to change it all to PAL or something of that sort. Not sure if it was the other way around, but i clicked yes. I couldnt remember which was the one to go with heh, anyways… If ya guys could impart some of your knowledge on me again it would be awesome :smiley: thanks again!

Ok… So i tried again with a differnt file and disc, and got this error now…

Memorex aren’t the greatest, they can be pretty variable in that one disc may be excellent, and the next may either burn like crap, or fail during a burn :wink:

However, if that log is from one of your Memorex discs, then maybe burning at 8x or 12x might help, so give that a go.

If that fails as well, then honestly, try some Verbatim if you can find some :slight_smile:

yea, i looked but i couldnt find any verbatim discs at the first two stores i went to so i figured memorex would be good enough heh, maybe i was wrong :P. Anyways, my nero doesnt have a setting for anything lower than 16x. I’m givin it another go, wish me luck, ill let ya know how it goes, thanks Arachne

There must be a setting somewhere that’ll allow you to lower the write speed, have a dig around Nero a bit, I know it’s there :wink:

Hehe, Memorex haven’t got the greatest reputation around here, partly 'cos they tend to switch manufacturers for their discs a lot, so you never know what you’re getting!

If Verbs are hard to find, maybe some Sony or HP or something would work, definitely better than Memorex…but good luck! :smiley:

Certainly Sony 16x +R discs would be a good alternate choice if you can’t find Verbatims. I’ve been burning some recently & they do very well.

Me too, both Sony -Rs and +Rs (16x) have been surprisingly good for me recently :iagree:

Ok, well its not that i cant find the way to adjust write speed, its just 16x is as low as it goes. The options are 48x 40x 28x and 16x heh, seems odd doesnt it? ANd it failed again, same error…

TCAS, i have had similar issues with other programs, ive been trying to find something that works. If that is the issue, is therre any other solution besides reformatting my HD?

That’s odd - sounds like you have it set for CD somewhere, as those are CD speeds - I’d check that Nero knows you’re burning to DVD, there’s a setting for it (a drop-down box IIRC).

I agree you might mixing CD burning with DVD operation.

Well, i reformatted my hard drive was having other problems as well. Now that i got a fresh start goin on, i atttempted to burn again and i am getting the error that i need to insert a blank disc… Tried to put a few different blank discs in and no good. Im wondering if i need to download drivers/firmware for my drive? Anyways anyone got any ideas? I have a dell comp with a
HL-DT-ST DVD±RW GWA4164B drive. Again, appreciate the help :D!

Hello again :smiley:

Do you have Alcohol or Daemon Tools installed? If yes to either, there’s a setting that can be changed which might help. :slight_smile:

No i dont have either installed. I have power ISO, but lemme know which you suggest and tell me what setting that would be and ill get right on it and give it a try :smiley:
