I have had this problem for long without knowing it. I discovered recently that my Gateway laptop internal DVD burner (DVD+R/RW DL) does not burn properly either +Rs or -Rs. I tried a variety of different media (which cost me a pretty penny too ), including Ritek G04 and G05 -Rs (from an old stock which I have successfully used earlier in a plextor standalone burner) and some Taiyo Yuden 02 series +Rs (rated among the best in another thread of this forum).
I seriously need to know what to do. I have made quite a few shiny coasters already.
The burner burns CDs from all manufacturers without a hitch. But DVDs it won’t burn. I have tried burning data DVDs through Nero 6, Roxio creator 8, as well as some specialized burning tools from WinISO and some others. Everytime the burning program reports a successful burn, but when I put the DVD back in the tray in my laptop or any other machine, it does not show any of the files. If I use the Nero tool to check the DVDs, it shows unrecoverable errors. :a
Please, any help is appreciated. I have already generated a log with the Nero Info tool, but it is quite long. So, if it is necessary, please let me know and I shall put it up here.
