Hello, trying to get the DVDwriter to write some audio cd's via nero 6 and it says it all works and writing the CD etc but when I get the new CD out of the burner there's nothing on it. I can play audio cd's from the burner so I know its all hooked up. Its puzzlingly me completely, the software doesnt have any hitches I know of, no error prompts at all.

Any advice appreciated!

Proberly nothings wrong with it, In my burner when i burn some cd-r's it wont read them. I put the cd in my other drives and it works fine. Strange things.

thanx for the reply buy I try the other drives and my cd player, which plays everything even badly burnt cd's from my mates burner and nothing, usually when you burn a cd there's a slight colour change noticable on the cd to the non-recorded part but on the ones ive tried there's nothing, its all the same colour.

Im competely baffled! any ideas, again much appreciated!

I have no problem with this and Nero Express,useing a cd-r disk and a cd-rw burner.
Aren't you going about this with the wrong writer ?
You can't play a music cd in a dvd player.
Music cd's aren't dvd audio disks.
:confused:

Try writing it in Windows Media Player Burner; I've never used Nero for it but as far as I've seen of it working its only really good for files and Video.

I had another look at your first post.Many burned disks are unreadable in Explorer but will be recognized by the right player.
:D
