DVD burning issues

Hi. I currently own an MSI DVD burner (comes up as ATAPI DVD RW 12XMax in Windows). I’ve found recently (within the last week) that DVD burning no longer works. I havn’t tried burning CD’s, but reading all media works fine.
Nero reports as a “Track following error”; I’ve attached a log file.
DVD-RW erasing doesn’t work either, and also comes up with tracking error.

Thanks. =)

For reason of unknown since it is only 7k big file is there way for you to just post that file instead of making it a attachment? Being on the cautious side from gettting any bad infections on one computer with all malware running about the net…

Huh…strange. Okay then.

I had a similar issue when I installed Roxio 8. All of my drives disappeared except for the C drive. However you stated that your drives just wont burn. This is just a hypothetical question for the more knowledgable but would doing an uninstall through device manager then a reboot (or something similar) help in this issue?

This burner cannot deal with that specific media. Try with 8x rated media from Verbatim.
