DVD Burning Problem

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 :slight_smile:

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 :wink:

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. :slight_smile:

What brand of media are you using? Some brands (Memorex, TDK etc) can change the actual disc manufacturers without you knowing about it. :slight_smile:
