Illegal disk error

OK I’m another rookie. I was burning just fine then I restored my computer’s OS. Now I get the Illegal disk error when I use Nero. I’ve read and read these posts, I’ve updated my firware to what I believe is the latest version, any ideas? Here is my error log, any help would be great!

R6RacingR6,

Your media is CMC MAG AE1. The maximum rated burning speed is 8x. You tried to burn at 12x.

Try to burn at 8x.

ive tried at 8 and 4 and 2.4 with the same results.

Than try with other type of media. :slight_smile:

BTW, welcome to cdfreaks. :wink:

I know the easy yet more expensive solution is new media. I just don’t understand how it can work then all of a sudden not work. I’ve used about 10 dvd’s out of this spool and they work fine. Any ideas on being able to use the rest of these dvd’s? I’ve also checked and these dvd’s are listed as compatible.

The media quality always changes, and also other influences can interfere easily when burning onto CD or DVD…
