Insert blank disk

I have recently upgraded (probably yesterday or day before) to dvdfab 3.2.0.8 beta version, and am having a problem with the program, or possibly just my computer. Last week when it was not updated however I was able to burn dvds without a problem, but now it continually asks to insert blank disk, once it is time for the actual burn process and seems to not recognize the blank-ness of the disks i am inserting. if this makes sense this far, the types of disks i have tried and am using (i have put it blank disk after disk, with no avail) are verbatim dvd-r 4.7gb 16x, and or memorex dvd-r, 8x, 4.7gb, 120min. are these crap disks? are there certain disks that have a better compatibility with the program?
is anyone else experiencing this problem, or has and can help me? thanks

Hello mwatkins and welcome to the club! I did have this problem, but only one time so far knock wood. What I did to fix it was, rebooted Fab with the movie in already and let it work. After rebooting, it proceeded to work fine. You might want to try turning off pathplayer too before hand. Also try in movie only and see if it works like that and report back. Also, Verb.'s are my personel favorite blank media so I doubt if your problems there. You can keep the memorex though,lol. Good luck. ~ Mike

yeah it is sort of weird, it worked 20min. ago, with a verbatim disc, and sort of just on its own (because i hadnt done anything different…just clicked ok after opening and closing the drive) and burned perfectly (and btw this version seems to be burning SOOO Fast! i love it…) but now same problem again…“insert blank media”

Which brand of media is causing this problem? also it could be that you aren’t giving the burner enough time to read the media

i think i am, i rebooted my computer and then shut it down all together for the night, and decided to try again this morning and got the following message

i believe it said errror 157…but i could be wrong on that.

Holly cow have no idea what all that means, sorry :frowning:

how do i know what type of burner i am using? could this be causing the inconsistency with the program? this seems to be a common problem with other users as i have seen others posting about it…is there [I]anything[/I] i can do to fix this? its so annoying to have the program working when [I]it [/I] wants to.
