Nero burn failure problem

Hi! Like many people in this particular forum, I’m having that “drm failure” problem. It seems this error occurs at random times. It also seems to happen only with my TY02 cdr-s. This error doesn’t seem limited to nero either cuz I tried burning audio discs with windows media player’s burner and it burned a couple TY02’s successfully. I’ve meed a handful of TY02 coasters. Please help! My burners a BenQ dw1650 with the second to newest firmware I forget which. :frowning: Thanks! Heres the log:

It could be down to the Nvidia IDE controller drivers as these can sometimes cause issues. It’s often recommended using the standard Microsoft IDE drivers.
