Problem burning DVDs in Nero

After many, coasters, I am fed with Nero DVD burning. I never had any problems until one day I noticed that the buffer (not the read buffer, but the write one) kept jumping around. It goes from 36% to 74% to 98%, then back down to 30…etc… It still does this now. I don’t know what could be causing this, but I’m thinking that’s what causing the errors on the resulting disc.

So what happens is that I burn the DVD with Nero with the crazy buffer level movement, the disc gets to 100%, and write’s the lead-out. Then, just as I always do, I check the disc for errors with DVD shrink, my quick way to see if there will be some serious playback issues, and sure enough when it gets to a certain part, Shrink spits back an error.

I have already slowed down the burning speed to 4x, from it’s 12x capabilities.

My computer is more then capable of burning DVDs too, it came with the burner after all. 1.7 Ghz, 512 RAM, Centrino Processor, I only bought it in August.

Does anyone know why this is happening, is it a software or hardware issue?
How much hard drive space is required to burn a DVD?

I was reading through some other posts and saw that this could be of some help too.

WNASPI32.DLL : 2.0.1.56 163910 bytes April 02, 2003

You have the DMA turned off for your burner. Try turning that on and it should help.

I turned DMA on in the Secondary IDE Channel, but the Nero Info Tool still shows it as being off. Is that common?

I restarted, but Nero Info Tool still shows DMA as being off, is that supposed to happen. I set all of the Primary and Secondary IDE controllers to “DMA if possible”.

But in the Device manager what does it show as the current transfer mode?

There’s guide in the Optical Devices forum for checking/enabling DMA. It’s worth reading when you have problems.

I read the guide. Much more graphical then I thought it would be. :cool:

The mode in the hardware profile for the secondary IDE controller that controls my DVD burner was still set to “DMA if available” after a reboot. So should I give it a try?

^^^

But what is the Current Transfer Mode showing? It should show Ultra DMA mode 2.

I still haven’t tried burning anything it, so thanks for your response.

After a change, and a reboot, both Device 0, and Device 1 show “DMA if available”.

So then I’m guessing it worked right, even if Nero still doesn’t recognize it?

Not necessarily.

Under the Advanced Properties where you select DMA if Available , the next line shows the Current Transfer Mode. If this show PIO & not Ultra DMA x then you’ve still got the problem.

Yes, you are correct, I totally missed that the last time, the transfer mode underneath where I changed the option still says PIO. So what does that mean? DMA is not an option for me?

There’s no need to keep “bumping” this thread. This is a worldwide forum & people sleep/work at different times.

The guide I pointed you too should have helped you resolve this.

You might have to look in the BIOS & see that DMA on this controller is set to auto rather than disabled or something similar.

You could also try switching the cables around & having the DVD on the primary & HD on the secondary. I have problems with one of my computers that the secondary channel will not give me Ultra DMA for optical devices & switching like this helped.

I figured out the solution to this problem. Thanks Tim for your help, you got me on the DMA track…

You might want to use ForceASPI to reinstall an ASPI layer.

Thanks for your help, but I just said I fixed the problem. Or are you trying to tell me I should do that anyway…?

Nero uses it’s own aspi layer but other burning software might use the system layer so it’s probably a sensible idea to do as suggested just in case. No harm should be done by doing this.
I admit I’ve done just this on my system so give it a go.

Right, I knew Nero uses its own, and I will do this anyway.
