Nero won't burn discs - help?

Nero seems to get to the 88-89% mark then stops. This is the log that I get - it is identical each time. I have tried both sony and maxell dvd+r with same result. Also tried DVDDecrypter, but got similiar “Unable to recover TOC” message. All help is appreciated!

Welcome to CD Freaks.

The media shown in the log file , if genuine , are about the best you can get.

The 2.4x burn speed concerns me as these discs will burn incredibly well at their rated speed of 8x. If 2.4x is the only speed offered by Nero then you need to update the burners firmware from the Pioneer site here .

Ok…installed new firmware. Still cannot burn. Here is the log. Please advise before I lose my mind!
