Hi to all, i’ve got a problem with burning DVDs.
I’m using a brand new BenQ 1640 drive, and Nero 7.
This is what happens : Whenever I try to burn something on recordable DVDs, my Nero 7 show the progress locked at 6%. No data is written on the disc at all.
When trying to erase DVD+RWs with data on it, from my old computer. The progress bar finishes slowly to 100%, but the timer continues on like forever. After i emergency-eject the DVD out, and re-insert it, the data appears intact without being erased at all. Apparently, the drive can’t write/erase recordable DVDs at all.
So, i tried installing Roxio 8. Roxio 8 can erase written DVDs, but also cant write to it…
I don’t believe its a hardware problem, as my rig is relatively new. And also cuz Roxio 8 can erase those DVD+RWs.
More importantly, erasing/writing on CD-Rs is COMPLETELY OK. Nero 7 does that without any probs watsoever.
This strange problem occurs only when DVDs are concerned. It can read but cant write/erase.
I have heard some things from my friends abt aspi drivers or something. I would like some experienced opinion from you guys here, before i proceed.
Thanx very much for reading. Any help would be very much appreciated
