IÂ´ve bought a Philips DVDR 1640k DVD-Drive last week. It is my third drive after two LG drives (the last one destroyed a whole CD ... but this is another story).
Today I wanted to burn my first DVD with the 1640k.
First I wondered, why Nero couldnÂ´t simulate the session. So I burned the datas directly to DVD and it stopped after 9%.
Then I installed the latest Firmware (2.5) and the newest version of Nero. After a restart back in Nero I couldnÂ´t activate simulation mode again but I tried to burn another DVD once again with the same result: a destroyed DVD!
After that I tried with Alcohol 1.9 to burn an DVD-image. I marked simulation-mode and a message occured which said, that my DVD-media doesnÂ´t support simulations.
Again in Nero, I tried to adjust the session without a DVD in my drive and I could mark simulation mode, as long, as no DVD was in the drive.
Is it a problem of the drive or a DVD problem (I use Tevion 8x DVD+R DVDs)?
