Hi, I’m new to DVD burners, and I purchased an NEC 3520A a couple weeks ago with Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD+R media for my Acer laptop. I have the drive in a Bytecc 5.25 USB 2 enclosure. So anyways, here’s the problem I’ve been having trying to burn with Nero Enterprise Edition 126.96.36.199. I’ve searched the forums but haven’t found anything that worked so I’m asking you all for help.
I can burn CDs just fine in the burner, but when I try to burn DVDs the process just stops at a random percentage and just sits there. Nero doesn’t really freeze, but it won’t let me cancel or do anything. I’ve wasted about 5 blank DVDs at this point trying to burn at 8x and 4x, after setting the region on the drive, and making sure the dma settings were correct. This is really irritating me because I was so excited about finally being able to store all my data on DVDs. thanks for the help in advance. Oh yea, the weird thing is that I burned 3 DVDs successfully before this started happening. I actually changed from an older version of Nero Ultra 6 to the 188.8.131.52 enterprise edition with no luck.
