Writer only burns certain cd's and fails on others

Hi,
I have an Apire 3610 which has a Philips sdvd8441 dvd/cd writer. For some reason on some white label cd’s it fails between 64 & 98%.

I used nero and this is the report:

Other disks have worked fine.And dvd’s take an eternity As i found when i created a rescue disk took 4 hours. Any Ideas?

Update Nero and use other media.

Update your burners firmware!!!

:slight_smile:

Thanks but i’ve done that with no joy.

Looking for an updated driver and struggling. It seems fine on a few different brands but fails on another one. VERY STRANGE!

Not strange.

Good quality media will work ok.

Well thanks anyway!
