Can't write DVD-RW at times

vbimport

#1

I am hoping I’m posting this to the right forum. I am having problems writing DVD-RW discs in my writer. I can write DVD-R easily and I have not tried any of the + discs yet. If you can tell, I’m new at this. Out of two boxes of DVD-RW I’ve been able to write 1 disc. All of the others have failed. 4 of the discs were wrote with DirectCD and I can’t format or do anything with them now.

I clean uninstalled CD Creator 6 and DirectCD and installed Nero 5.5 that came with DV capture card. I have tried to write 6 more discs with Nero Burning and only one has wrote. Below is the information on my computer:

PIII 800 Mhz Processor
Windows XP Home
640MB Ram
Maxtor 160GB HD
BTC 1008B Writer Secondary cable-slave
Nero 5.5

I am attaching the error logs from Nero for 2 of the failures. If anyone can help with this, it would be greatly appreciated. I am just trying to copy data files to a DVD. Sorry, but the error loga are quite lengthy. I’m stumped on what to try next. I am going to purchase some + discs today but I need to be able to write in the - type of discs for some work I’m doing at the television station. They have special readers that will only read - type of discs.

Below are the error log from Nero on 2 of the failures:
