Hi. I hope you can help.
I have been backing up movies for some time now using Nero and I have NEVER had a problem.
I have used many different brands of DVD-R discs and they have all worked great.
Last week I got some vouchers for Jessops and I purchased some:
BEST (Thatâ€™s the brand name)
4.7GB Single Sided
1 â€“ 8X Compatible discs
When I insert the disc the windows media player picks up the disc and opens. I close that down and open Nero and do what ive done a 1000s of times before.
Once all the files are loaded I press burn. The Used read buffer goes up to 100% and the process status starts but never gets no further than 1%. Then everything stops and I get a popup stating:
Burn process failed at 8x (11,080 KB/s)
Ive tried burning at slower speeds but the same happens again.
Like I said before I have never had a problem with Nero and if I stick a different brand of disc in it copies like a dream.
These discs were quite expensive. More than I would usually pay but I had loads of vouchers for Jessops so I had to get them.
The weird thing is. Out of every 20 discs I try 19 donâ€™t work and one will copy ok.
I hope you understand all the above.
