Burning DVD's using Nero

  chrismuir 23:41 17 Dec 2006


Recently reinstalled Nero, and tried to burn a DVD with a load of holiday pics. The process failed at the stage where it checked the disc (a Phillips DVD-R).....I tried the same with a CD instead (using Nero) and it worked fine. Any ideas what may be wrong?

I've copied a couple of the lines from the error log file:

Have you tried updating Nero?

Yep, tried that and no change...... It used to work fine, then I uninstalled it. Wish I had left it alone now!! I can select which files I want to burn to disc, but the moment it tries to start the burn process it fails.

click here Try using this, it is free and despite it,s name will do DVD's. I have Nero 7 but use this one more because it is easy to use, I tend only to use Nero when I want to do things like burn bootable disc's

This is the line that gives it away. Nero thinks you are trying to burn a CD. Cwitch to DVD or CD/DVD mode

Cwitch = switch

May be a silly question but did you select DVD from the drop down list.

I have Nero and 2 seperate drives on my PC. If I want to burn a DVD I have to specify it in Nero. It will always remember the last type of disk it burned

  chrismuir 22:03 19 Dec 2006

Yep - selected DVD and it still fails. Pity I don't have any more of the DVD's that worked fine - I may try and get a new blank DVD - clutching at straws I know!!

(a Phillips DVD-R)..... Does your DVD Writer do the - discs? you may only be able to burn + discs. My DVD recorder uses Philips DVD+R but my DVD Writer does dual layer + or - discs, some writers only use one format.

i think with my own drive only + dual layer discs work, although I have tried both and managed to get - discs working also when i bought them once accidentally (although unsurprisingly the burn rate was around 50%.. surprised it worked at all though!)

i think the verification process in nero can be a bit awkward sometimes and give a fail even when the disc has burned fine- but then with dual layer only video is easy to check fully (in a reasonable amount of time by watching the entire disc!)... if it keeps on happening i guess youve no option but to clean up windows, reinstall nero with the latest update and mayb even try another brand of dvd rather than just switching between + or - ..
