HELP! I'm failing 10 of 9 burning DVDR with nero

Hi,

Everytime I burn a DVDR ISO file. It would fail!!! that’s at speed 4x. However, I found out that it would burn fine with speed 2x. Now, the problem is, when i insert a blank DVD, nero will automatically set the burning speed to 4x. and therefore the burn will fail. Does anyone can help me with this? I’m using 7.7.5.1 version, if i downgrade to 6.. version, would I be able to change the burning speed?

Sorry if this seems a bit complicated. But any input is greatly appreciated!!!

This log is from a simulated burn. Anyway my advice would be to use ImgBurn to burn your ISOs. Use good blanks like Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden (TY) & make sure your firmware is up to date.
