Dvd burning issues

:confused: hi i’m new to dvd burning and am having some problems burning to dvd, no matter what i try to burn iso files, disc copies, standard file backup i get the same issue.
I have tried a number of burning software programs including nero v6 and every time it goes through the motions recognises the media type tells me the burn is complete only to discover i’ve burnt another coaster with a audio file on it.
Everything suggests the data is on the disk in terms of it tells me how much space has been used but the disk is otherwise visably empty apart from the 1 audio track. System specs are as follows

windows 98 se
btc X8 dvdrw drw1008IM
MEDIA DVD+R 1X-8X REC SPEED MITSUBISHI BLANK DISCS

Please anyboby got any ideas, as i’ve tried everthing i can think of.

  • unload or shutdown any other possible application on your pc
  • fire up nero
  • choose your recorder and carefully check the options then close that window
  • insert an empty blank writable dvd in your writer
  • select new, double click on DVD UDF
  • drag a lot of files (but lesser than 4.5 gigs) to the left
  • start writing and use verify
  • post the entire log file in this topic

followed instructions as best i could

1.no other programs running
2.nero fired up
3.blank disc in
4.tried to burn various file types, standard files, iso, zip, rar less than 4.5g
5.verify option selected, dvd udf selected but depending on file type nero defaults to file specific ie iso dvd image.
6.burns succesfull, verify data fails
7.disc not accessable, another coaster to the collection. disc shows x amount of memory used with 1 audio track on it

Am i missing something simple, i have not had any trouble with cd-r ( burnt loads with no real issue) or dvdrw (only tried 2 but both successfull).

log from trying to burn standard files from hardisk to blank dvd
