"Write error" Help please

Hi everyone! This is my first message here so don’t be angry if I’m posting in the wrong topic. I need your help with something.

Since yesterday I’m having troubles with burning dvd’s. Everytime I try to burn a dvd I get a ‘write error’. I’m using winxp and nero on a sony dvd rw dw-d56a-drive. I’ve saved the log to a textfile and copied here. I hope somebody can help me… Thx in advance.

First of all edit out your Nero serial number (4th line from top)! You only have 30 min from time of post to do so!
EDIT Now its the first line!

Welcome to CDF.
It says “medium error”.
First of all get some good media like Verbatim or TY,s. Princo is buy far the worst media you can get.
Second, burn at a higher speed. Burning to slow can be worse that burning to fast. Your drives firmware might not even support 2X with the media you are using.
Have you tried using ImgBurn to burn ISO files. It works much better and it’s free!

Thx for the replies! If I’m not mistaking it might be just a bad brand of dvd’s I’m using? The strange thing is that I was able to burn dvd’s of this brand in the past…
