Problem using dvd + r to copy with my mp5125a

  rick fuller 20:51 04 Jun 2003

I am trying to copy on to DVD + R using my Rioch MP5125a with nero 5.5 latest upgrade. Nero reports the dvd + r as having no room. I have tryed a number of discs form more than one manufacturer and get the same responce. Copying CDs has been event free using the same system and In CD words with CD-rw and DVD+rw.

You could also see if there is a firmware update for your writer.

Hi, This is where your system info would be advantageous. I have the same DVD+RW, use Nero and have no problems. I use a self built PC, 1.5 Ghz CPU, 256 Mb memory. I am off to bed now but a serious look at our settings would probably sort out the prob. I will note all my settings sometime later today, send them on to you and hopefully we can get you up and running. Cheers, Bill

Is the drive still in warranty?

I have the latest nero and firmware but it still reads dvd+r as having no free space. It is in warrenty. My system is 1.2G celerium with 256 of memory.

Ensure that the brand and grade of disk is suitable for your burner. DVD burners are very faddy about which disks they will write to.

Hi, I have had a good look at the settings but I really can't see anything that would cause the said symptons. 2 things come to mind. Are you trying to copy Audio?. If so it will not do it. secondly I used to have a CD/RW that did the same thing with CD/Rs. What I had to do was go through the copying proccess until I got the dialogue box that said 'Not a recordable disc', without altering anything I opened the CD drawer and closed it again, on clicking OK it then came up with 'Recordable disc' Cheers, Bill

I have narrowed the problem to Nero as I have been able to use DVD X which uses a different burn driver Gearworks burn engine. DVD X is very expensive any alternatives whould be helpful or how to fix Nero?
