I recently bought "Novatech DVD-R 16x 50pack Printable" (click here) and have only just got round to trying to burn anything to them. I have a NEC ND2510 drvie which is capable of burning both +/- DVDRs at 8x. These DVDs which i bought are certified at up to 16x and are the RiVision brand. When I tried to burn it with Nero 7 the error log said that "Could not perform start of Disc-at-once" and when i tried to burn a disc image using Power ISO it said that it was "Unable to reserve zone". Have I got a dud batch or is there something I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
Yes I have used the Nero Info Tool which says that my burner should burn both +/- discs and I have only tried burning onto DVD+Rs in the past (which has worked fine) so I am hoping to try another brand asap in the hope that it works. Thanks for your reply.
I try to use Verbatim discs whenever possible, not the trendiest or cheapest but seem to work in every burner I have had thus far. The NEC site used to publish recommended brands at one time maybe they still do.
I have DVDs I got from Novatech, Datawrite brand DVD-Rs rated as 16 speed but my DVD writer won't burn on them at 16 speed, ruined half a dozen disks trying it but burns perfectly if I drop the speed from 16x to 8x. Since I did that I haven't lost a disk.
I found that the drive was not the drive that I thought it was so a firmware update was available. Luckily this firmware update has meant that I can burn the new DVD-Rs. Thank you for your all replies which helped me diagnose the problem.
