DDW-081 and Nero 6.6.0.8 - no more DVD+R

vbimport

#1

Folks, I am really at wit’s end with my setup. Until recently my combo worked flawlessly under XP, but now the writer is not able to burn any DVD+R. It can burn DVD+RW, CDR and CDRW, but not any DVD+R. A Plextor CDRW installed in the same machine works as it always has.

It first happened when I tried to write an ISO and the process failed shortly before the DVD was finished. Since then it either doesn’t start writing at all or the process fails between 5 and 15%.

I have tried different media as well as trying the Adapatec ASPIs, didn’t change a thing. Updating from Nero 6.3. to the current 6.6. didn’t do it either. I changed processor and board just two months ago, so I’m not sure if that might have something to do with it (frankly I can’t say IF I burned a DVD+R since I put the machine together or not). If it helps it is an Athlon 64 3500+ on a MSI K8N Neo 4, running XP SP1 (like the old machine).

I have also searched this board and the web for the various errors the Nero log gives me, but can’t find anything that helps me solve this.

Here is Nero’s last log. It is partly in German, but “Fehler beim Schreiben” simply means “write error”:

If anyone can help me solve this mess I’d very much appreciate it.

Sounds like you need a new DVD writer. They are so cheap at the moment, if I were you I’d get a new one. Even if it did not fix the problem, it would rule out the most likely factor.

BTW, recon you’d have to uddate Nero with a new burner.

Thanks for the reply, DrTeeth.

Yeah, it looks the thing is AWOL. Had the chance to test it in another machine today and didn’t work there either.

Benq 1640, here I come :wink:

Just to update this for anyone experiencing the same problems and searching for clues: It apparently was the Nu-Tech, the Benq works flawlessly.
