I have Nero 7 and it has been working really well until recently when it stopped burning onto dvd-r’s it will only burn onto dvd-rw’s and I can’t figure out why. I burn 98% of my backups as data files to fit more on each disc to save money and I buy high quality discs. I haven’t changed my discs or the way I burn them off. Nero 7 is the only burning software I have. Can someone help me please?
Hello, welcome to CDF
Can you provide a Nero error log so we can see exactly what’s what? You may have to try another burn (on a DVD-R, since they’re the ones not working) to get one.
And remember to take your serial number out of the log first
I’m not sure how to do that but I copied down what it does say :
Reset occurred E:TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-W162C
I hope that can help.
Hmmm, that alone doesn’t say much, unless…are you using the drive externally?
If you try another DVD-R burn and it fails, Nero should ask you if you’d like to save an error log. Save this log as a .txt file somewhere, and copy and paste the contents into your post.
What brand of media are you using? Some brands (Memorex, TDK etc) can change the actual disc manufacturers without you knowing about it.
