Nero won't do anything other than DAO?

ok, so i’m using nero 6.3.1.15, on a NEC 2500A with herrie’s 1.07beta5 firmware… it was fine yesterday, and now suddenly it decides that it could only do DAO on dvd’s. in the cd write dialog, it could still do TAO…

What does your multisession tab say?

“start multisession”

and i’m pretty sure you can have track-at-once even with “no multisession”

And what does that mean and what’s the problem?

the problem is that the “write method” bod is grayed out; i should be aboue to choose between track at once and disc at once.

I think (might be wrong though) that because its a DVD your burning you can only do DAO.

You´re right. Mine does not give me that option either. However, you can still write multiple sessions to it.

Why, what difference would that make? Again, what problem have you encountered when burning.

ick, typos.

anyways, the problem is that it USED to let me choose, with the same media (OPTODISCR004). and i haven’t tried to do multisession with disc-at-once, since i’m assuming that DAO means that multisession won’t be possible.

Disc at once and track at once are the same thing if there is only one track to write.

Try a multisession DAO and see what happens.

funny, it works. i can write mutiple session. how come on cdr’s, if i use disc at once, it’ll refuse to let me wrong more sessions?

it doesn’t work for me

the Write Method option is grayed (both in Express and Classical interfaces), and when i write multisession in DAO, it fails with the error “could not complete Disk-At-Once end…” something

Here is my log file:

The error is “Could not perform end of Disc-at-once”

I tried a different media and the write worked.
The non-working media was Memorex 8x DVD+R, and the working media was Ascentia DVD-R.
