DVD+R burn problems
I am having DVD burn problems, mainly writing a DVD+R with data files using Nero 188.8.131.52, in a 6 month old Philips DVD Drive (DVDR1640K/00).
In total I have burnt less 100 CD/DVDs. The drive still reads, rips and burns audio CDs.
It fails in different ways:
1. Sometimes it the ejects disc at start of burn, as if rejecting it.
2. Others it progresses and the burn fails near start, mid-point or end.
(Are there Nero error messages that I could screen grab and post?)
I am using Logik DVD+Rs suitable for x8 burning, which I am doing. I have already successfully burned ~30 of a 50 spindle, could the media be at fault?
Has the device failed? Do I return to the vendor and get a replacement?
Strangely, I had similar intermittent problems with my CDRW drive in my old PC a year or so ago, where it was very intermittent, and worked best for a while when the PC had just been started from a long period of rest, i.e. cold. So I assume when a drive plays up like this it has come to the end of its life, is this so?
As advised by Philips I have uninstalled Nero, rebooted, re-installed Nero, and rebooted. Firmware had just been upgraded during problems.
Also, when a blank disc (CD or DVD) is inserted into the drive, should this be visible in Explorer?
Hope somebody can assist as I am getting severely hacked off with this drive, especially as I keep ruining blank DVDs during testing.
Apologies for the length of this
please answer as many of the questions above.
