This is my first post so please be gentle with me.
I have a quite old pc with the original cd-+rw/dvd-+rw writer installed. Recently it has stopped burning dvd-r’s for some reason. Since i noticed that, i have successfully burned a dvd-rw but dvd-r’s still wont burn. No idea why. At first i thought i had dodgy dvd’s so i bought a new pack and the same problem.
I understand that my burner is quite old and upon googling my “nero” error of “illegal disc” i have been led through a strange new world of firmware flashing. I have tried several from 1.0A-1.0C-1.08 but all make no change. I think it may be because i have an oem burner but i’m not sure.
After flashing the burner and restarting the pc i get windows telling me that it has found new hardware, a cd-rom device!! When i put a dvd-r in i am prompted with the “what would you like to do with this cd!!!” I think i have broken it i really do.
Time for a new burner or do i just need to get less retarded.
Thanks for reading. I can provide my nero error log if needed
