Issues with burning DVDs

vbimport

#1

Hey, I’ve been tearing my hair out with this. I used to have a Sony DVD-RW, which worked great for over a year, then suddenly stopped burning DVDs.

So I figured it’s busted, so get a new one. (Pioneer DVD-RW 110D). I format my HD, reinstall everything and same problem. I can’t seem to burn DVDs(CDs are fine tho). All in all I have burned upto like 10 -15 coasters.

I have tried various things.

  1. Cleaning out my registry.
  2. Trying ROxio, Nero etc
  3. Upgrading DVD -RW Firmware
  4. Trying other Media…
  5. checking API

Here are my specs:

P4 2.4 GHZ
512 MB ram
80 gb HD


Heres the eror log I got from one of the failed burns:

Please anybody…everybody come together for world peace …AND helping a dude out. WTF is wrong here? Like I said I have formatted the HD, Bought a spanking new DVD -RW, yadda yadda yadda… Any solutions et wisdom to pass on?


#2

The first thing to do is upgrade Nero to the latest (7.0.8.2 I think). The earlier versions of V7 were very buggy and the latest is better. But still a long way from being perfect. I’ve not upgraded from 6.6.0.18 yet & don’t intend to do so for sometime yet.

Personally I’d change the output device to Image Recorder & create an ISO image file & burn with Imgburn. Also I’d burn at the rated speed of the media - 8x. Slow burning is not necessarily better.


#3

Thanks Tim, I will try Nero again and post results.
