NeroCMD and Multisession - demands blank media

I am not having much luck getting NeroCMD to make multisession discs.

I set up a batch file to detect the errorlevel 26 to choose between making a new disc and continuing a session.

The making a new disc functions correctly, as does detecting and importing… but… the system insists on wanting a blank CD on which to write! Here’s the error:


C:\Documents and Settings\sa-admin.SANWT>c:\winnt
erocmd @nero1.txt

Imported volume name: CDNAME
    PHASE: BUP activated

[i] Buffer Underrun Protection activated

    Reading directories

    Creating directories

    Checking discs


Last detected media: unknown
Requested media: CD-R/RW


The disc is not empty.

Please insert an empty disc.

I have tried different discs from different mfgr’s, including Sony.

I have downloaded the most recent versions as of today.


C:\Documents and Settings\sa-admin.SANWT>c:\winnt
erocmd --version
NeroCmd version 1.7.0.6

Nero API version 6.3.1.6

Ok.

Here’s the options I’m trying to use to Continue the multisession:


--write 
--real 
--drivename "e"
--import
--tao
--iso CDNAME
--close_session 
--underrun_prot 
;--import_iso_only 
;--disable_eject 
;--no_user_interaction
c:\backup --recursive 

And, the options used to create it:


--write 
--real 
--drivename "e" 
--tao 
--iso CDNAME 
--close_session 
--underrun_prot 
;--import_iso_only 
--disable_eject 
c:\backup --recursive 

In both cases, I have tried it with and without the items commented.

Several people have posted that this works for them. I’d appreciate knowing what is different in your setup than in mine above. Thanks.

G’day

Having the same problem but only with NeroCmd 1.7.0.6

NeroCmd 1.7.0.3 seems to do the right sort of thing though

NeroCmd 1.7.0.3 Came with Nero 6 if that helps :slight_smile:

Hmm. That’s interesting. Anyone have a copy of 1.7.0.3 they can email to me or let me download? Only 1.7.0.6 seems to be currently available from Ahead. Or am I looking in the wrong place?

I’m having the same problem with 1.7.0.6…could anyone send me v1.7.0.3 or tell me how to continue multisession cds with 1.7.0.6 nerocmd…

Thanks!

The problem is a bug in NeroCMD, which always sets the DVD-Video compatibility flag in some versions. With this flag set, NeroAPI always request an empty disc.

If you can compile NeroCMD by yourself, you can fix the problem by setting m_bDVDVideoCmpt to false in the constructor of PARAMETERS, file parameters.cpp.

Otherwise, you have to wait for the next NeroSDK which will include a fixed version.
The next NeroSDK will probably be released in one or two weeks.
