Please help, probs with NERO

  geewis357 22:36 31 Oct 2006

When I have been using NERO of late I get a message at the same point (80%) and it reads unrecoverable read error, can anybody explain this

Are you able to give more info:

What part of process - the burn or the validation

Is it with same set of data - may indicate possible problem on hd, scan the hd to check.

If in validation could point to problem with data copy, bad CD/DVD. If happens on others from same batch of CD/DVD try different brand - I had problem with set of cheapish unbranded blank disks - worked fine when I changed to othet set.

It hapens when reading any disk but allways at 80 and 81% this is the same when I copy on the fly or not

Could be bad or damaged media, may possibly be a faulty drive or dirty lens, try a lens cleaner CD and see if that helps.

the same happens what ever disk I try to copy

the same happens what ever disk I try to copy

Is that from your hard drives or another CD/DVD they way I am reading this it is from other CD/DVD?

  geewis357 23:45 31 Oct 2006

yes scouter I am copying other CD's

I assume you have at least two drives as you mentioned copying on the fly.

Is you problem always with a read of a disc? If so is the disc being read always in the same drive?

Have you tried using the same drive as source and destination? In other words using your burner to read the contents temporarily to HD and then burning to a blank CD/DVD, if this method works okay it would suggest that the other drive needs cleaning or is defective.

I have tryed both ways and still the same, and still it stops at the same 80% on the read side of things

  Scouter 23:52 31 Oct 2006

You had same thoughts.

Correct, I sure did.


What configuration of optical drives do you have? Not makes and models etc but for instance do you have a CD or DVD ROM reader and a CD or DVD Re-Writer? Is the process failing at the read or write stage?

I would suspect, that as you have now said you have tried burning on the fly and using your burner as source and destination, that your burner is either defective or needs cleaning, I very nmuch doubt that the problem is related to Nero.
