Nero Recode2 DVD Burning Problem

I use windows 2000 OS, and recently installed Nero OEM version, then updated to My burner is a Sony VDR-VC10, connected to a Toshiba T40 laptop via USB2 (the Nero software was supplied with the burner). The burner appears to be operating correctly except for DVD burning using Nero. Currently, I am able to take a movie DVD, and using Nero Recode2, select what particular DVD-video file(s) I want to import and store / play them to / from my hard drive. The issue is with buring to my Toshiba DVD burner. When I use Nero Recode2 to take the same video content located on my hard drive and attempt to burn it to a DVD (ensuring I have enough space on the DVD using DVD-5 (4.7GB) - I am also using Sony DVD+R media), the DVD will stop burning when only partially complete. Sometimes it will stop at 3% complete using faster record speeds, other times 50% if I slow the speed down to 4X. Under no corcumstances have I been successful for a complete burn. The same occurs when I attempt to directly copy the entire DVD content to another DVD also using the same Nero software, bypassing the hard drive (this discs are not copy protected). Please help! I am also attaching the last section of the Nero error log for reference:

Many thanks - SLDWAA

Nero recode2 main purpose is to get larger or multiple dvd files files to fit on a single dvd (eg. 7.0gb down to 4.7gb).The problem is you are recoding and burning at the same time. Instead of burning directly to a disc try making an image file or a hard disk folder when using recode2, then burn the results using nero express. If the files are below the 4.7gb (actual size of the project should be under 4.38gb) then there is no reason to use recode2.

Many thanks - I took your advice (after upgrading to Nero and was able to successfully create an image file as well as a hard disk folder using recode2 to dvd-5 format. I am also able to write this data successfully to my burner (Sony VDR-VC20) using both Nero Burning Rom SE as well as Nero Express. The issue is that now I can only view the movie on my PC and not on my home theater DVD player. I believe it is only a configuration issue with either the format of my image creation or DVD disc burn. Any ideas? I have burned approximately 15 DVDs trying different settings but am unsuccessful. I have also seen similiar issues in other threads but no solutions.

Thanks in advance for any assistance. :bow: :bow: :bow:

Following advice from others (ArizonaSteve and JM1647), have you tried setting the bit type of the DVD to DVD-ROM in Nero SE?

Can you please advise how I do this in Nero Burning ROM 6 SE ( Do I open a new compilation, then select one of the DVD-ROM selections on the left panel of the screen? If so, which is recommended (ISO, Boot, UDF, or UDF/ISO) - or is it a switch somewhere in the config that I cannot find?

Thanks again… SLDWAA
