burning issues onto CD or DVD

  Boy Zone 20:10 05 Oct 2009


I have a a Acer 1640 notebook and up till yesterday have never had any problems burning CDs or DVDs but not it keeps failing.
I use Nero 7 and windows XP home.
It reads the CD audio files and yet when it tries to burn then it fails and I get an error message, what ever it means.
Could the DVD writer be dirty??

means lack of memory for the burn

try burning at a slower rate.

sorry to raise this on again.

I still have a problem writing to CD's My writer is a Matshita UJ-840D ver 1 firmware. Cant find any upgrades.
I use Nero 7 and can burn a RW CD but not a Verbatim CD-R.
Speed of write set at 24X disk 52X. even tried setting burn speed at 16x, but still fails.
Had no problem when last tried to burn a CD, but cant recall last time I burnt a CD.
Cleaned lense....

You can burn a cdrw, but not a cdr. Would have thought if anything it would be the other way round as cdrw need higher burning power but no matter, how did you clean the lens ? You can very very carefully use a cotton bud (good quality one) and tease the end out so it's soft and use that but be very very gentle... don't poke the lens, gentle turn the bud in your fingers to clean. As you probably won't have lens cleaning fluid slightly moisten bud with pure water. Use another bud dry in the same way to dry and polish the lens... again gently with minimal pressure.

Try another make of cdr to, just to be sure.

Burn at a slower rate 8x instead of 24x

Try running Check Disc on the Hard Drive, tell it to auto fix errors

Nero also as a CD or DVD check before trying to Write to a disc. You may need a better brand of disc

I have now managed to write a cd at 8 speed. I usually write at 24 X, using the same Verbatim brand disks(52x).
The writer in my Acer notebook is a Matshita UJ-840D and I have tried to upgrade the firmware but can't find any site.
