Disks not burning

vbimport

#1

Recently i’ve been trying to burn data dvd’s and the burning process would always fail, due to a dma setting. I just fixed that and now im trying to burn a data dvd and it’s not letting me burn a dvd-r or a dvd+r disk.

so my question is, do you need different types of disks to burn data?
or will it be a hardware problem?

btw im using nero 7 ultra edition and my burner is a lightscribe.

Any help will be appreciated.

What kinda model is your burner and firmware? What kinda media are you using and your burn speed? How do you have your burner connected?


#3

my firmware version is HI86/H186
the model of my burner is lightscribe
im using maxell and some other media that im not sure of
and i dont get what you mean by how do i have my burner connected


#4

by the way its saying “can not use this disc to burn compilation”

use either: DVD R, DVD RW and some other disc


#5

does the total file size exceed the capacity of your DVD?


#6

no, i still have about 500mb left to spare


#7

Replace the disc with a quality DVD+RW such as Verbatim and retry with just one small file. If it works fine the erase and burn till full.


#8

so what seems to be the problem? my burner or my disks?


#9

run Nero Info Tool and post results here

Looks like a software or media problem not your hardware; but I am no expert in this area.


#12

no one else wants to help? :frowning:


#13

Does ImgBurn [freeware] also give you issues?


#14

Did the drive ever work ok? Try putting that drive in another pc if possible.
