hi datboyvi and welcome to the forum. :slight_smile:
what exactly is the error you get?
what kind of media do you use? get DVD Identifier or DVDInfo and show what it says.
the more info you have for the other members the more help we can give you.


i ran the media test and thats what i got. i use Sony Dvd+R

and heres a snapshot of my burner info

i hope i gave you guys all the information yall need to help me :slight_smile:


you should blank out your serial #'s when you take a snapshot. anyway that is good media your using. what speed are you burning at? plus is that the latest firmware(1.06) for your burner? plus is dma enabled?


yeah thats the lastest firm ware and i burn at 8x and whats dma? im still new to this :frowning:


check this thread out for the dma. and if it is try burning at 4x.


it is enabled now let me try to burn it on 4x


try it at 4x then 8x to see if there is a problem…it should burn at 8x just as good.


i tried both and i still get the media write error =[


should i try a new burning program?


sure it wouldn’t hurt to try others


but what exactly is the error you get?


WriteDVD 10 11 W2


did you read that thread yet?(WriteDVD 10 11 W2) there are alot of reasons that error pops up for. i’m glad i never had that problem. and i use itunes and other things that that thread talks about.


it’s underneath this thread right now.


im tryn to read it as of right now but none of them solves my problem i just reformatted my computer and i dont use itunes its so confusing :frowning:


yes it is but you’ll get there.


try slowing down your read speed also.


Exactly what are you doing? Is it an on-the-fly copy (reading from a DVD-ROM & burning directly to the DVD-RW ) or are you ripping to the HD and then burning?


ripping to hd then burning
