Recent problems with Nero

Hello

I’d like to have your advise on Nero, which has been giving me problems recently.

Last one I had, I started burning a disc using the ‘drag-and-drop’ method. Cda files were cached one by one and suddenly I got an error (can’t remember it, sorry). The disc didn’t even reach the 7 % of progress when this happened.

When I did a ‘Medium Info’ check, using the same media, I got a message that told me the cd-r still has space available. I tried burning again, but nero wouldn’t let me.

I’m attaching the message, so I can be a little more explicit.

I just like to know if I should throw the discs, or keep them. :confused:

Thanks for reading my post.

i would say those CDs are no longer able to be written to. audio CDs must be finalised/closed anyway, and my experience is , if the burn fails, then the disc is no longer any good. as you have proven too - nero can no longer write to the CD. you should really try to discover WHY the burn failed in the first instance or chances are it will recur

Thanks for your help.
I get different types of error’ messages.
I’ll write them down next time.

If your burn fails on a non-rewritable disc, you won’t be able to reuse it.

Thanks for all your responses.
I’m learning a lot from them.

Hi,
I wonder if you have figured out how to fix it, 'cause I’m having the same problem. I’m testing the NEC ND-2510A I just bought. I’ve burnt a data CD with Nero, an audio CD with Musicmatch Jukebox, and a backup DVD with DVD Decrypter, so I think the drive is good. But when I tried to burn an audio CD with Nero, I got an error at about 5% of the progress. CDA files with track info are created and the disc is no longer writable. However, when I chose “simulate” instead of “write”, the simulation process was completed successfully. I upgraded Nero from 6.3.1.15 to 6.3.1.17, but am still getting the same problem. Here’s the log file if it helps.

Any suggestions?
Thanks.

first thing is to see if nero is the trouble. so, get deepburn free edition from http://www.deepburner.com/ and try creating an audio CD. install an aspi layer first. from http://www.snapfiles.com/get/aspilayer.html
