Cant't Burn DVDs!

vbimport

#1

I don’t know what’s happening.
I’ve already lost a lot of dvds. I can burn CDs easily, but no DVDs.
I was using Nero to burn my DVDs and getting no success. Only if the space I used in the DVD was real low.
I saw some threads here and uninstaled Nero and InCD, and tryied to burn with CopyToDVD, but there is no use. The burning process stops for some unknown reason at the middle. I already updated my firmware to the latest (DL13).
I’m starting to think the problem is with the media I use. HELP!

Any sugestions??


#2

Could be just try another brand.


#3

Absolutely.

A 2.4x media would surely not be recommended for a 16x burner these days. I would imagine that these DVDs must have been produced some time ago so the quality (what there was) could easily have depreciated (if that’s the right word).
