Will the OS affect the burning?

Recently I have changed my OS to XP, and ever since then I have been having problems burning DVD. Problems like the burner couldn’t recognize the mediums or read error… My old OS is WinMe. Software : Nero 55 10 28 Any comments?

Did you upgrade or clean install?

Clean install. Actually it a new Maxtor 80G HD. I haven’t ruled out bad medium possiblity. Right now I am using Ritex 1x. I am going to buy a few blank discs of different brands to see if that is the problem.

i am using xp/sp1 and the latest nero. Works ok for me.

Do you have an ntfs partition???

Problem solved! Bad mediums. Damn, I’ve still got forty of them!
I just bought a few Melody. And they work fine.
