does anyone know why i cant seem to get past the second track when burning cds? I have been using nero for the last couple of years with no problem at all.I have seen the message that the buffer has overun at least once and ive wasted about ten cds trying to burn some music this week.
Disregard that last posting it was meant to be scrapped.
Try reducing the speed you are recording at. The drive memory cache (or buffer) has evidently run out of data whilst the drive is still writing. Hence the coasters you keep getting. Most CD writers have a cache of around 2MB or greater.
Path for cache – You can select the directory and path for the cache. This is important since you will be using this space as a temporary cache when burning large files or full discs. It can help prevent buffer underruns.
Test all drive speeds – You can test all hard drive speeds on your system for performance.
Minimum disc space reserved – Reserve the minimum disc space for your cache.
thanks for advice so far but i just fired up nero and got the message 'Win-ASPI file cannot be found. Therefore you can only currently select image recorders. I guess this is the problem. Dont know how i missed that before, but how can i retrieve the file?
Can I give you a bit of advice, instead of wasting your cd's use a CD/RW until you have sorted the problem out, at least you can erase them and use again. Have you downloaded the latest version of nero 126.96.36.199 they also have tools to correct Nero if you are haveing problems. click here
try this click here looks and works just like Nero but it's free.If it still doesn't work then I would suggest you have a hardware problem possibly memory. I would also suggest you don't burn above 8x as this can cause buffer problems. I've found this out through experience with many computers of various speeds/configurations.
