Nero Problem.... Failing at 99%!



Well recently Nero has been failing at 99% of burning! My burner then locks up and I cannot open it when I press the eject. I would have to restart the computer.

Another problem is regarding Alcohol 120% … whenever I try to burn an image… it will say "Not enough space for writing process(CD)

What’s causing these?


well the alcohol issuse SEEMS as if your image is too large for the blank dvd you are trying to burn to,no? however…

i would try > 1. go through the 10 points listed @ [though YOU

may be no newbie, the trouble IS, and may be related to any one ,or all, of the listed items]
2. update the firmware of the drive. check for updates @
3. try another brand of CD/DvD disc
4. install aspi layer. preferred is v460. get it @
5. uninstall any software you recently installed
6. for XP or Win2K users, optimise your operating system Services for best system performance. for info

go to and
7. open taskmanager and shutdown ALL unneeded processes that are running.
8. try another burning software and see if you get a better result. deepburner standard is free. get it @
9. make sure mainboard chipset drivers are up to date. make sure all cables and jumpers connected to

drives are correctly configured with regard to master/slave setup.
10. enter your BIOS and disable anything you don’t use. set memory speeds to default. set cpu speed to

default. if you overclock, DON’T [until you are certain that overclocking is not the cause of the trouble].
11. if you still cannot fix the problem, try the drive in another PC that has NO burning issues…if possible.

if i can think of anything else i’ll be back ! :wink:


For the Alcohol 120% problem… the image I was trying to burn was around 693MB… it still kept giving me that message. I used Blindwrite and it worked.

I’ll try what u suggested… thanks. :slight_smile:
