Nero refuses to burn a cd

vbimport

#1

I’m using a pacific digital generic dvd dual 4xmax (u-30182) dvd burner. I’ve updated my firmware to the latest for it (260I).

I’m using Nero 6.3.1.20

When trying to burn any CD, I get a slew of errors:
(in order of most times ocurred)
-Cannot Perform Fixation Error
-Focusing / Tracking Error
-Power Error

About 2 weeks ago I burned a DVD just fine and this is the first I’ve ever had trouble.

Info tool and dvdinfo tool show that the drive is just fine. The drive reads just fine. Any ideas?

Should also add that I’ve got the latest drivers for my motherboard installed and am using XP Pro service pack 1


#3

Is your burner supported by Nero at all? Did it work before?


#4

According to their compatibility chart it is supported:

DVD DUAL 4XMax IDE/ATAPI 2/4xDVD-R/RW, 1/2.4/4xDVD±R/RW–x 5.5.10.33

That drive is made by accesstek and its acually:

DVD RW DD0201 IDE/ATAPI 2/4xDVD-R/RW, 1/2.4/4xDVD±R/RW–x 5.5.10.33

I cant recall if I’ve ever used Nero with this burner, I’m almost sure I’ve burned mp3 cd’s before. Winamp was successful at burning one normal audio CD since all this happened. Other than that, I’ve been up shit creek


#5

Try the .25 version from Nero, maybe it will work better?
I’ve heard quite some issues Nero conflicting with other burner software - maybe helpful for u to check the situation. Lately a lot of mess going on with Nero…


#6

/me sighs

Well since I’ve been without a burner for over 2 weeks I broke down and picked up an 8x dual layer from “liteon”… burnt me a full mp3 cd in under 3 minutes first try… ::shrugs:: sucks that it had to come down to that, but I need new music in my car every so often or I go crazy!
