DVD Writer problem

  SonnyB 22:20 27 May 2007

I have an Advent dual core 2 laptop which I purchased in January. I use it fairly regularly to write dvd's but for some reason it has stopped working. It plays discs fine and the burn/write dialog indicates it is burning discs but when I play them back there is nothing on them. Any ideas please? Should I try a lens cleaner etc?
Any help appreciated.

Dont think its a dirty lens or you would have trouble playing them aswell.
What burning software are you using?

As you only got it in January I would take it back, sounds like a problem with the DVD burner it's self

I just tried a lens cleaner then tried to copy a different disc and it worked. I then tried to copy the disc I needed and it failed! I am using DVDShrink and/or CloneDVD. Both have worked fine in the past. The fact that it copied after a clean has really puzzled me though.

it sounds like that particular dvd, if it worked on the other one that was tried after using the lens cleaner

Delete clone and anydvd and reinstall,see if that works.
