Like usual, I used a burning software called Sonic to burn a data DVD on a Syntex DVD+R disc. For some reason, the burning process never launched. A message popped up and said something like â€œthe dvd is bad, try another one.â€ I tried a few more discs and same thing happened. I gave up on this for couple day and then tried again. As I have hoped, it worked. I was able to burn a DVD data disc. I tried to burn a second one and it failed. The “bad disc” message popped up again.
I thought the problem might have to do with the software, Sonic. So I installed Nero Express (the program that came with the burner) and tried to burn a Data DVD disc â€“ it failed. This time, Nero indicates â€œBurn Process failed at 16x.â€ I tried it few more times before switching the burn speed to 8x. Guess what â€“ it worked. I tried to burn another one and that didn’t worked.
I went out and got a couple of other brand (Memorex and Sony) DVDs and tried to burn them - it failed. Suspecting the problem might had to do with my desktop, I connected the burner to my laptop â€“ same results.
I tried burning a CD-R with the burner and there were no problems.
Can someone tell me whatâ€™s going on? I have done some experiments and the result tells me the problem is not with the softwares, discs, or my computers. At first, I thought the laser is messed up but it still able to burn cds. What should I do? Is my burner got burned?
