ND3450A Could not perform end of Disc-at-once

Greeting all,

I purchase ND3450A with high hope that its setup just as easy as my previous burner IO Magic. In addition, the review of ND3450A is kind of good too. However, when I try to burn DVD +R [tried Legacy 4.7G DVD and KHypermedia 4.7G] with Nero 7 Premium. The burning is completed but always ended up with “Could not perform end of Disc-at-once”… could somebody help to guide me to solve this problem? The log file is as follow. One more problem, I have a Verbatim DL 8.5G DVD+R data DVD. I have no problem using IO magic DVD burner to read the file but I couldn’t read it using my newer ND3450A.

Nero 7 is just out and has given some people problems,i just had problems writing lead in on dvdr-s but going back to nero 6.3.125 fixed it.The endlesss lead out is well documented here as a problem with versions of 6.6xxx nero.
I`d uninstall nero first (use nero clean tools to totally remove it,reboot and reinstall).
Its been said that nero can be incompatible if other cd burning programs are installed on your drive too,you could try uninstalling those too.
Update with an official firmware.
Best of luck
Al
