Problems with Nero 6.6.0.1 and blank -R after a burn

I’m running a clean w2k SP4 install with all the updates, nero 6.6.0.1 and using RitekG04 -R media. I have an nVidia card installed, but running using the generic VGA driver, no nVidia drivers are installed.

What happens is nero does the full burn and then during the verify it just hangs as it can’t mount the disc.

Turns out the reason it can’t mount the disc is because the disc is still BLANK.

Strange also that DVDInfoPro fails and reports the disc as:

DVDInfoPro generally gets this right, sometimes it fails. The media is RitekG04.

I’m curious why some of the patches say “NO” when I didn’t do anything tnot install them…

Questions:
ASPI isn’t installed, things seem to work without it, do I need it?
I’ve seen talk about nVidia and Intel IDE drivers causing issues. It appears my secondary IDE driver is an Intel driver. Should I switch the controller driver to the one Microsoft driver? My options on the secondary channel are only two Intel drivers and one Microsoft generic driver. How should all this be configured?
