Problems with I/O Magic DVD Burner and Nero 6

Hi All,

I’m a newbit to this forum so please excuse any technicalities about posting rules! I recently bought an I/O Magic DVD Burner and used it with Nero 6. I’ve copied a few DVDs perfectly fine. Then I got an error on one burn after no apparent change any computer settings- I think the failed copying followed immediately after a successful copying or only the day after, between which I basically put my laptop to sleep.

What is the brand of your DVD writer? HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H10N
What f/w your DVD writer is using at this time? What is “f/w?” (LIke I said, newbit!)
What brand of DVD disc are using?. Nexxtech 8x DVD+R
Is your drive in DMA postion?. Does this mean “on?” I’ve checked it according to other threads and believe so-
How much memory you are havng in your PC?.
What is the size of your hard drive?. 2.25/40 GB free, 512 MB RAM
What is the speed of your processorin your PC?.
2.8 GHz
What kind of burning software are you using?. Nero 6 (originally worked, then failed), Trying Nero 7 right now- no success, tried PowerProducer of Cyberlink DVD Solution, which came with this external I bought.

Here is the log, PLEASE HELP AND THANK YOU!!:

Try burning slower or by using better media.
disable booktype request (temporarily).

Welcome to CD Freaks :wink:

Let me highlight one of the rules, which is that we request you do not hi-jack someone else’s thread. Yours has been split off as a separate enquiry.

Uninstalling Alcohol maybe could also help here.

Yep, chef is spot on as usual. A combination of both his answers should do the trick :wink:

I hope. I’m not a wizard, still. :wink:

Hi again,

Just wanna say first that I appreciate all your help!

OK: now I’ve kept the same media and tried the slower 4x, which gives me the log below with the “could not focus or tracking,” different from before, but still results in the “could not complete end of disc-at-once.” In addition to giving that error, it actually burned a bit of info on the dvd+r, so that there is a “Track 1” the next time I try to burn w/ the same dvd and looks at the disc info…So now I’ve wasted 2 DVD+R’s. Before, I could have used the same disc because it didn’t really start burning anything. This is what happened after I uninstalled Alcohol.

I will move onto try a different media once I get them. Log:

Yes, so I’ve confirmed that if I do the exact same burn but at 8x, then i get the original problem at top but can still reuse the DVD+R, and if I do it at 4x, I get the latter problem, with a bit of data burned on there and my DVD+R wasted.

Please advise!! other than trying a different media- that is pending. Speaking of which, what are some good suggestions for media for future reference?
