Nero 6 " unable to recover TOC" & " "Could not perform end of Disc-at-once"

Hi all

I’m a newbie to Cdfreaks, approching pension age, slowly losing my brain cells and desparately in need of help!!!

It seems this problem never seems to go away.

Up till now I have been using Datawrite Titanium 4.7 GB DVD+R 8x to back up my music files, with the occasional " end of disc-at once failure"

Since investing in the Verbatim 4.7GB DVD+R 16x I have not been able to burn a single Disc. Six of which are now Coasters!!!

I keep getting the messages “Unable to recover TOC”

and “Could not perform end of Disc-at-once”

DVD Brand : Verbatim 4.7GB DVD+R 16x
DVD Burner: Pioneer DVD RW DVR-106D
Nero: Nero 6 Ultra Burning Rom Ver 6.3.0.2

I have tried to update to the latest firmware from pioneer at:
http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/content/support/support/software.html

but when trying to install “73813268DVRA06_FW108.exe” keep getting the error " DVD-Rom/DVD-RW Firmware update Utility ver1.90E Available target not found"

I have also removed InCd withoput sucess.

Here is the saved log, here’s hoping somebody may be able to help.
