Need advice - Error when burning dvds with any program or settings

I came here for adive from all the experts I have see here from looking at other posts.

I have a new E1505 laptop from dell and have been burning dvds with it for a few weeks but lately, every single dvd I try to burn errors out the same whether in nero or dvd shrink or other programs. It is always at the same part in the disk and I have tried other brands just to be sure. They are standard DVD+R DVD-5 media. I have tried what I can think of, firmware is up to date, nero is up to date, drivers are up to date.

Here is the log file of my last attempt: (identical to other failed attempts)

I have heard in other forums that the specific version of Nero that you are using is buggy. If possible, downgrade to a different version of Nero and see if it helps out. Either an earlier version of Nero7, and if that doesn’t work, try out good ol’ Nero6.

Does the problem occur with CDs as well? Or just DVDs?

Also, be sure to disable any third-party firewalls.

Good luck!
