DVD Stopped burning to +R's!

I have been using my Memorex DVD+/-RW True 8X DVD Recorder, Clone DVD2 (2.8.5.1) + AnyDVD, and Nero Express 6 to make back-up copies of my DVD Movies for sometime now and it has always worked great up until yesterday.
It goes through all of the proper steps/w Clone DVD2 saying that it is writing showing green bar with remaining minutes and finally “Writing to video media was Successful” Log shows no conflicts or errors and my DVD burner has green light showing that it is working.
I have always burned to Memorex +R’s out of same stack and they have worked geat, but this time when I try to play them with Nero ShowTime, it says, “Cannot play DVD from this location”! Select source shows my F drive is checked which is my DVD player/burner and have always played my back-ups in the past this way with Nero Showtime. My stand-alone player says “No disc” when I try to play the burned +R DVD.
When I check the supposedly copied +R disc, it shows blank – o bytes – File system: RAW like it is a blank copy. When I try to copy to the same disc again, CloneDVD2 does not even recognize the disc like something has been changed/added to make the disc unusable!
I have not done anything out of the ordinary in the past couple of days like installing new software, messing with setting or anything that I can think of.
I even restored back one month (XP) and it is still will not burn to +R.
The strange thing is that it will burn to a DVD/RW with no problems and Nero ShowTime will play the copied movie great. The Memorex Web site was no Help and was unable to find anything with/w Google.
Not knowing much about DVD burners and how they work, other than Laser technology, is it possible for a burner to go bad and show this type of problem. I mean burning to a RW, but not +R. I have not tried –R because I already have about 8 coasters or mini Frisbees already!
I have had the Memorex burner for about 16 months now.
Any thoughts or other tests that I could do to try and correct the problem or is it time for a new burner?

Hey Zapit…I would first make sure that you have the latest firmware for the drive. And even if it is, I guess I would re-flash it. Second I would get rid of the Memorex media and try a known good media like TY. Memorex tends to be crap media. Download DVDidentifier or DVDinfopro and post the mid code of the media. My first guess is that you ran into a bad batch. And then the normal checks like is your drive still set to DMA. Did your ASPI layer take a dive on you. You can verify this by running Nero info tool and posting the software tab. Also you can post the configuration and see if DMA is still enabled. Under drive you can see your firmware version. Make sure you have all the latest updates to Nero. If these all verify, I guess then I would delete Nero with their clean tool and reload it. And if this all doesn’t work, you maybe hosed and it maybe time for a new drive. But thats not all that bad as the drive prices are very cheap now and you can graduate to a much better quality drive like a BenQ, NEC, or LG for around $40.00 to $55.00 depending on what you want. Let us know how it goes. And Welcome to the forum.

Hey Sportfish thanks for your reply…. I verified that it has the most recent firmware. I assumed that Memorex was good media, but I guess I am wrong. It’s just that I have successfully burned over 35 discs from the 50 pack that I had bought and had no problems what so ever until a couple of days ago. Had some TDK DVD+R that I tried with the same aggravating results.
I downloaded DVDidentifier like you suggested and it is a handy tool to have…thanks.

I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Nero 6 Memorex Suite software with all updates per your suggestion.

The following is the results of the most recent coaster that I have added to my collection.

It seems really strange what all of a sudden my burner has decided that it does not like writable DVD+R’s but has no problems with Rewritable DVD RW’s!

Hey Zapit…Your running a very old version of Adaptics ASPI. 4.56 to be exact. I would go here and load 4.6. It’s more stable than the newest of 4.70 or 71. Do this and try another burn with Nero. If it fails then post the burn log of Nero. This is what we really need to see for myself or someone else to help you out.

Hey Sportfish….I will DL 4.6 now and try another burn. Please explain what you mean by “post the burn log of Nero” so I will do this right. I am using CloneDVD2, which produces a log, but it always says that the burn was successful. I have never used Nero directly to do a copy but will try it out. I guess this is what you are talking about when you say “Nero log”.

Hey Sordfish………. I updated Adaptics ASPI to 4.6. I tried to “Copy entire DVD-Video” in Nero to an +R and it failed again. I guess the following is the “Nero Log” that you was requested.
Thanks for your time. If this does not prove anything, I guess my burner has definatly SHIT on me! Sad because it was doing such a good job of making back-ups for me. Well life goes on!

Hey Zapit…Well I’m starting to run out of options. Either your drive took a dump or I’m missing something here. Hopefully it’s sitting right in front of my face and I’m looking to hard. Anyone else have any ideas for this Dude?:confused: :confused: :confused:

Have you installed anything around the time it quit burning! Think awhile on this, because we forget sometimes about that little update that said uninstall old version first!
Clean extra software off you system and old versions of software!
Always update your BIOS and check settings as well as current FW for everything!
Check you setup again!
Master on cable by itself!
DMA
good cable
Try a burn with everything closed except your burning app!

Disk clean in accessories!
Use Symantec or Spybot to remove broken links!
Clean you system!
Check your drive in another box if all this fails!

Thanks for the hand etp. I was getting pretty sleepy last night and was starting to brain fart. But at my age, thats normal.:bigsmile: Hey Zapit along with etp’s good suggestions, also hows about when was the last time you did a DeFrag???:confused:

Thanks Sportfish and etp for the tips. It will take some time to try all of this but I am pretty persistent! Do wish I had a spare computer to move the drive to for test because this would prove a lot but no can do yet.
Do remember some auto updates from MS, AnyDVD and Trend Micro Antivirus around that time, but like I said before, I did a restore (XP) back one month and no go.
Like Sportfish said, new burners are only $40 or so, but I won’t let go from a problem that easly. It’s a carry over from my old days as a Telco repair Tec I guess.

Hey Zap…I would do the DeFrag first.

Time for an 3550/4550, 1608P2/110/A10, 1655, 1693(P6)!

1655,3550, and liteon model P6 chip would work good in your situation! They don’t care if they are masters!
