DVD Data Burning Errors - NEC Drive / Nero 6.3.1.15

I am running into various errors when attempting to burn ~3.9gigs of data onto a DVD+R. I only use this computer to backup/burn data CDs/DVDs. The last time I turned on the computer, I was able to burn a similar data DVD of ~2.9gigs. I think the only difference this time is that there is less free space on the harddrive (only 9xx megs free).

When burning, I either get a speed measurement failed error or an error reading file message.

I have tried letting Nero determine the burning speed and setting it at 2.4x (the lowest option available).

Software: Nero 6.3.1.15
DVD Burner: NEC DVD-RW ND-2510A

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Welcome to CD Freaks.

Most likely down to the lack of free space.

The error you’re getting is a data read error (from the HDD). This could be the space issue , severe fragmentation - which you most likely have - or a physical problem with the HDD.

Is there any rule of thumb on how much free disk space is required to burn without any issues?

I am out of town right now but will try freeing up some diskspace later this week.

Thanks!

It’s not just for burning that you need free space.

Aim for 20% minimum generally, then you’ll be able to defrag the disc properly on a regular basis, which is essential for smooth & effecient operation of your system.

I just created two more DVDs… :confused:

I actually have 2 partitions on my harddrive. C drive is for all my programs and has ~4.5 gigs free. D drive is where I’m storing the files that need to be burned. D drive now has ~7 gigs free. I’m burning ~4 gigs.

At both 8x and 4x burning, the burn process failed. Log file is below.

Any additional help is greatly appreciated. I just want to back these files up.
