DVD-R burnt on Win2k not working on WinXp

Hello Guys,

I have a problem with all the DVD-R’s I burnt on my old laptop using Win2k - Nero 8.2 are not working on my new laptop WinXp - Nero 8.x (I’ve tried more than 1 version) . All of them were working perfectly on the old laptop furthermore DVD+R’s are working on the new laptop.
At first I didn’t see the pattern but after searching for an answer I noticed that the problem is only in the DVD-R.

All the Data I backed-up from my old laptop are on these DVD-R’s now.

So please advise.

Hello geo_vic and welcome. :slight_smile:

Well you’re going to have to help us here, since we cannot “advise” without more information.

What brand were these DVD -Rs? It’s possible they are of not great quality.

Can you download Nero DiscSpeed (here), start it up, put in one of the bad discs and tell us what the program says under the ‘Disc Info’ tab.

Hi and Welcome!

the problem is not related to the operating system at all.
I suspect just poor burn quality due to media and burner, so the discs are unreadable in other drives.
Please report the MID (use DVD Identifier to find out) and disclose the exact model and firmware version of the burner your were using.

Michael

ewww slim type drive…are these TDK branded disc?

please get some verbatim disc and have good luck. i would suggest 16x media but your drive only supports 8x so you might have better luck with 8x Taiyo Yuden, as these are the disc i use.

seems your drive is not recognizing the media correctly.

Hi,

as mentioned by troy512, your drive seems to have problems writing these discs properly.
I agree to the suggestion, trying Verbatim or TY media.

Hi,

Just to get things straight it is probably that my new drive cannot read the DVD-R written by my old one. So to be able to read these DVD-R I should find a drive which can read these DVD-R (since i don’t have my old laptop anymore)
