Dvd burner just stopped working

vbimport

#1

I’m new and not to computer literate…great first impression I know. however I was burning data to dvds just fine using vista wizard, then it started having a hard time recognizing blank dvds, then when it would it would start burn and then stop…citing error, thats it, nothing more, so then I said well I will use nero, that started and stopped as well. I have NO clue what is going on, I thought maybe it was something I downloaded so I scan, no bugs, I did a system restore, still happening, then I bought more expensive media, same issue, have NO clue what is going on, or what happened PLEASE HELP. i’m using windows vista, home on an acer aspire and did research on other boards looking for help for a week now and I seen people posting logs? so here is mine, I am really lost :a:confused::sad::frowning:

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for posting the log :slight_smile:

From the (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR) in the log, it looks like your LiteOn is having a hard time with those RiTEK-made discs - they aren’t the best anyway, and I notice you’re attempting to burn at 16x - have you tried lowering the burn speed in Nero to say, 8x?

If lowering the burn speed doesn’t help, I’d suggest some different media, such as Sony or Verbatim. :slight_smile:

Edit: I see you already tried different media…my suggestion about the burn speed still stands, though :slight_smile:


#3

Thanks for the response, I have tried lower speeds in using the vista wizard, see If I use the vista wizard, burn mov files and just master the DVD, i can watch them on my DVD PLAYER, its a fraction of the time it would take to encode them, I was using same speed and I was doing it just fine until yesterday and it just stopped, now nothing will burn, not even if I burn it a data disc using media player, I can’t even burn a data dvd of photos, keeps giving me the same funky error message. It will play but not burn, I will try to lower the speed with nero…
THANK YOU!:bow:
edit* I found one last Maxwell dvd+r 4.7gb and its actually burned and worked, I was so clueless I really thought a blank dvd was a blank dvd. now I will never buy memorex crap again, it cost me a whole week of stress, I was ready to buy a new dvd burner…which I still may? any suggestions?


#4

The LiteOn you have is a good burner, so you may want to try some better discs on it first :wink:

I’d go for Verbatim or Sony (whichever’s cheapest, although either of them may cost more than your Memorex ones).

If you’re still after a new burner…the Optiarc 72xxA series drives, or a Pioneer are both good choices IMO. :slight_smile:

Thank you very very much

You’re welcome; let us know how you get on :slight_smile:
