Need help - Hardware or Software? Problems

I’m using Nero Burning Rom v6.6.0.16 with a Sony DRU830A Firmware version SS15. I use Verbatim DVD+R 16x Media. After backing up a few movies, I started having trouble. On the Nero screen, where it shows the file being burned, flashes every few seconds. The Used Read Buffer is at 100%. The Buffer Level jumps between 32 and 98%. It took me 42 minutes to backup a movie at 16x, but it will play with out problems. I’ll try 8x after leaving this message. I’ve re-installed Nero, too. I can’t figure out if the problem is software, hardware or media. The media will burn in other burners.

If this problems has been addressed before, I apologize. I tried to search to this topic, but it got page cannot be displayed. Thanks for any help.

The version of nero you have isn’t the latest they have nero version. Have you tried to watch the original source to see if it doesn’t have any flaws on it and if the surface was scratch free? Are you multitasking while nero is running? What other firewall and antivirus do you have running? If they movie plays and run without jerks or stopping I think it should be fine as long as the buffer doesn’t drop to 0. But I leave that up to others on here who have used nero to dup movies.

I haven’t tried the latest version of Nero, but why would it screw up all at once…if it is a software problem??? The original source isn’t flawed in any way. No multitasking and McAfee is running in the background. I have always used Nero and don’t know what other software to try.

Thanks for your input.

Post a log…

Try IMGBurn… :slight_smile:

Ok but first off do get the update and do you have the full retail package of nero or just OEM? I have the full retail with all the packages installed. Check to see if any other programs aren’t running in the taskbar that shouldn’t be running to free up memory for burning. I don’t know your exact setup and hardware configuration so I am on assume some points to check on. Oh yea forgot to ask how old or new are the movies? Some newer movies do have protection and some older don’t and do. Are you using a program like anydvd to decrpyt the protection before using nero?

Where do I find the log?

I have an OEM version. The taskbar only has McAfee AV running. The movies are new and old. I use AnyDVD v6154 to decrypt.

I tried at 8x and it took 1 hour and 2 minutes.

Disable the AV.
Make sure DMA is enabled for the burner!

I’m trying it now…will let you know. Thanks

DMA enabled?

Yes, it is enabled.

Scratching head now! Try d/l dvdfab platinum (free for 30 days) and try using that program and see what happens, also what brand of blank media are you using

Which DMA mode?
