I'm going to murder my server. Please prevent this tragedy from happening!
I'm at the end of my rope, I pray someone can help me.
I've searched forums here for the last three days, and can't find anything that fixes my problem.
I built a machine to use as a server. It's running Windows Server 2003. I've got a LiteOn 451S burner in it, and a LiteOn 18P9S reader. I have Nero 126.96.36.199 installed as the burning software. I cannot burn data to a DVD to save my life.
First, I left the firmware alone on the burner. Installed Nero v188.8.131.52 on it. Launch Nero, it gives me an error about "known compatibility issues with this operating system". I continued, ignoring the error, and attempted to burn a data DVD. Burned fine, or appeared to. Upon data verification, about 5% of the files failed.
Then I updated the firmware to CG5G. Tried again, again ignoring the error. Exact same result, exact same files failing data verification.
Dug around, found the upgrade for Nero to v184.108.40.206. Ran that. Tried again, now I have a new error. The DVD seems to burn fine, but during the data verification process, I get sector errors every 2 seconds, all the way through the process, the source and destination sectors are different (I think is the error).
Tried upgrading the firmware again, this time to VS0G. Same exact result, sector errors.
I'm at a loss at what to do. Is there some problem with Nero and Windows Server 2003? Is the burner foobared? Am I missing something extremely simple?
Any help is greatly appreciated, I'm about || this close to chucking my server out my window.
If there's anything else I need to provide, please let me know. I'm completely new to the whole DVD burning thing, so I apologize in advance.
