Unusual DVD Burn Problem

vbimport

#1

Well a week ago, I was messing around with my graphics card drivers to install an old Driver to play an old program. I have a geforce 6800ultra. Now I gave up and decided to go back to the original driver. Later I decided to burn a backup of a movie (4.3gb), then about 5 minutes into the burn, the dvd drive spits out the dvd and the burn fails. I’m using Nero 7 to burn too. I can burn stuff on dvd that are under 2gb or something. I dunno, it mightve been a freak occurance. I continue burning various things over 4 gigs or 3gigs and they all fail. I wasted a lot of dvd’s fixing things. I tried reinstalling Nero, I tried updating my DVD driver, I tried restarting. None seem to work.

Also, previously burn, like a day before, I used a different brand of DVD which I just so happen to use the last of. Now i’m using 4x compUSA brand. A big money saving moment. lol and its a pack of 100.

I tried burning on my laptop with the same DVD and it burns succesfully. But I think it was under 3gigs. I’m going to test out burn something over 3gigs.

Here is the Nero Burn log for the failed attempts.

All the help would be greatly appreciated. I seriously hate wasting so many dvds. :frowning:

Restore your suystem winows to few days before you first changed the driver for your video card then reboot you computer and check to make sure this solves your problem.


#3

Just because your laptop’s burner can burn crap media doesn’t mean that another burner can be successful.

It really is a false economy to by really cheap media, the saying “you get what you pay for” is undoubtedly true in the case of DVD media.

Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR)

Says it all.

Welcome to the forum. :slight_smile:

Agreed with the others. Verbatim is probably one of the best brands you can buy in a regular store, unless you buy online in which case I’d recommend Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden. :slight_smile:
