Are you using 'branded' discs or did you get them cheap ones from the market ?

You should only use discs that are recommended by Pioneer.

It indeed colud be wring sort of discs - so try buying singles of several recommended brands to try.
It could also be the burner program.
IMHO Nero six is a bit of a monster, and you can run into trouble various ways. one example is I am given to understand is that Nero disks that come OEM
with a particular drive are patched for that one drive model and will not function properly if another drive is substitued, For this and other reasons I have dumped Nero in favour of
CD BurnerXP Pro 3 a freeware burner that is very simple to use. Look at click here

Also make sure your operatingsystem[XP] is disabled
to overcome any conflicts
