Ts-h552a failed writes for dvd+r

i’ve used imation, iomega, and sony media and they all produce the same error, no matter what speed i burn with. burning with dvd+rw media works fine though.

i have the latest aspi installed, and reinstalled nero 6 as well.

here’s the most recent log i could find:

what i want to know is, is this something that can be fixed (i.e. software problem), or do i have to buy a new drive (i’m eyeing the benq dw1640)? i’m hoping this isn’t something i need to reinstall windows for. thank you.

Had a similar error (With a ts-h552b), although, mine was with burning dvd’s using -r media. -RW and +RW worked fine. Tried everything (updated drivers, firmware, etc.) Only I never thought to try +R media… Once I did, I never looked back, everything works fine now.

Maybe you should try -RW and -R media, see how that goes (since your problem is +r related).

And have you updated your firmware?

And if you can still burn cd’s fine then it’s not a software or drive problem. I thought my software or drive was stuffed, but it was a media (dvd-r) problem.

3 different types of media? They all rebadge crap, so maybe try some TY, or Mitsubishi/Verbatim media, or maxell media. Something made in japan at any rate :wink:

Software update (to latest Nero6 version)
Delete the IDE controller in windows & let it re-detect & install the drivers.

Try different Burner Software.

Firmware Update?

Replace the IDE cable.
