Hello CD Freaks. I am in need of your help.
I have a problem with my DVD burner. It appeared about 3 days ago, I was burning two movies, the first one worked like a charm but the second one didn't.
Nero, which I'm using, stopped at 1% and the DVD writer kept winding up to full speed, then slowing down. Winding up, slowing down ... up .... down.... etc. It never passed 1% and I had to shut the computer down and restart.
I burn about 2-3 DVD-Rs every day, and this burner has been great and hasn't caused any problems at all since I got it about a year ago. I never experienced anything like this. At first I thought it was the movie or the disc, so I tried a few things:
I have tried with a) a new version of Nero, and b) Alcohol. Same on both, 1% and wind up/down infinite. I use the latest firmware for the drive. I tried with 4 different DVD-R brands, although I always used Imation and they always work well I decided to try anyway. The drive plays media without any problems. I've also tried burning different things, not only this specific movie, and the same problem occurs. I have tried on 4x speed, and indeed the meter passed 1% but instead I got a DAO error upon finish and the disc was lost.
I use: Nero 6 Ultra ed.
Windows XP Pro SP2
1 gig RAM, P4 2,5Ghz CPU.
I'm greatful for any help and assistance you can bring me, please let me know if you need further info and throw me some pointer I can try out. I doubt my drive is broken, and if it is , .. I can't even think about that.
Thanks for your assistance guys!
