Hi everyone - very new to burning and having problems. I have googled and searched Nero website looking for answers to my problem, with no luck. Apologies for the long post.

I was backing up a disc which was about 4GB. Attempted simulation and got the following error:

The error was unspecified target error.

Attempted simulation with the TDK DVD-R 3 times and got the same results.

Rolled back to Nero 6.0.0.15 and used DVDShrink

The DVD burned to 100% and is playable but it didn’t finish properly and I got the following error.

Any advice on what I am doing wrong or how I can fix would be much appreciated. Is it a media problem or nero? Thanks is advance.

You’re actually getting the same error both times, though the older version of Nero is worse, as it’s one that doesn’t know how to drive your burner correctly.

I’d start by returning to the latest version of Nero.

The precise error, unfortunately, is one that doesn’t appear in the sense code lists I ordinarily use.

I’d be surprised if the problem was the media. I’m not aware of any fake TYG01 (though I don’t keep fully up with what’s happening with media) - TYG01 is a Taiyo Yuden code, and that’s normally regarded as the best DVD-R media there is.

TYG01 is 4x media, and you may get better results trying to write (or simulate) it at 4x, though this drive doesn’t allow you to do this (it seems to be a 2x only drive on DVD-R). You may actually be better off using DVD+R media in this drive if that would be acceptable to you - it’s a 4x DVD+R drive.

I would personally be looking for upgraded drive firmware. However, I haven’t got a clue where to start looking for GWA-4040N firmware.

It may be worth talking to the laptop manufacturer - assuming that you bought this drive with the laptop. Dell seem to use it in Japan only - that’s about all I could find.

The laptop I am using is a relatively new LG Electronics 1.4 Centrino laptop with the LG GWA 4040N burner.

Received NERO Express 6 OEM with the laptop. No firmware upgrade as far as I know yet. Will need to contact LG Australia for help by the sound of it.

Thanks for your prompt help.

I’m havin the same problem and have partialy soved it. I suspected that the problem is overheating. The DVD drive shuts down. Please verify the next time that happens if the disc is “burning”. My laptop is an Acer 1603. If I turn the computer off for one hour and let it cool than I can burn a DVD. I just hope that this info help you. My brother has an ingeneous system to cool his laptop with a fan and forcing air under the laptop.
