I recently bought a new DVD-RW drive from staples. its a digital research technologies 16XDVD-RW drive (compatible with both DVR-R & +R).
i tried to back up my files on sony 1x/8x DVD-R dvds, using the Nero 6 software which came witht the drive (i also downloaded the updates to 184.108.40.206).
However it keeps on giving this error which goes something like this (if i remember correctly(
-it starts cahing
- then it says “started burning at 8X”
- after a minute or so “Writing error”
- then it says “writing short lead-out”
-the process then gets stuck sometimes for several minutes until i abort it
I have dell P4 with windows xp (with SP2). I also checked DMA which is “on”.
Any one has any suggestions (in simple not too complicated words), otherwise i’ll keep on wasting those expensive dvds.
