Just stumbled over your fab site and wondered if you guys could help me?
My PC runs on Windows XP2 and I've been learning how to burn DVDs over the last few weeks. I've been using Tuff Disc DVD+Rs (4.7GB; 16x write speed) and everything seemed to go okay. Recently though Nero has been spitting out discs halfway through copying, which it's never done before. When I check the rejected DVD in My Computer it shows up as being empty but I'm not sure if that's the case. Sometimes they are and I can rerecord on them (I'm using DVD+Rs - not rewritable DVD+RWs) - which I guess means the discs ARE blank - but sometimes I can't and Nero spits out the disc again.
My question: Is there any program that can check my DVD+R's to see if they are empty or if they're corrupted? I've tried DVD Identifier but it always comes up with the same results, i.e. it verifies the disc is empty but sometimes Nero still rejects it again at the end of the burning process.
The status during the last check read:
[20:06:24] DVD Identifier V5.0.1

Am I using crap discs or what? Even when I try to burn at a very low speed the same error keeps occurring.
Sorry if this post is in the wrong forum but I am pretty new to this malarky so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
