    nero says you can use either +,- dvd's I have already copied 18 dvd's in a series. possibly not completing a former program may have caused the glitch I think it is not reading that there is a disk in the writer.

Hi,

Open Nero Burning ROM.

Dismiss any startup options, clear the new program interface of any messages.
With the Nero Workspace on screen and clean, on the toolbar there is a drop down list toward the far right that when dropped down shows you your drive(s) installed and usable. If you do not see both of your burners but had before, then something has changed that needs to be checked. If you do see both drives, dismiss burning ROM and from the Nero Quick Start, click on the drop down list of Tools and in the subsequent screen choose Product Setup. From here, let Nero check for updates and install them if they're available. Once done, you may be prompted to restart just Nero or your computer as well. After doing one or both, check the drop down list again to see if both drives are in the list now.

Other things to check if you still do not have both drives in the drop down list and have installed updates.

1. first check the cable to be certain it is still connected strongly. If its an IDE cable some of these work themselves loose after time. This can occur at the back of the drive (most likely) or at the board (less likely).

2. if you have your drives set to Cable Select, but they are on the same IDE cable, try setting the jumpers at the back to Master and Slave depending on their position on the IDE cable.

3. if you know which of these drives on the cable is not being recognized shutdown and turn power OFF at the back, remove the cable and power cord while the computer is OFF. Restart to a Desktop, then, shutdown from the desktop.Remove power at the back, reattach the cable and power plug and reboot. See if Windows, finds new hardware, if so, let it look for driver updates on the Web too (takes a bit of time to do this). If Windows found new hardware, reopen Nero Burning ROM and get to a blank workspace and check the drop down list again and see if both dries are available.

4. If after doing these chores you still cannot see your second drive bay listed in Nero, check Device Manager (right click My computer and choose properties. From the My Computer properties pages select the Hardware Tab and then click on the Device Manager button. Check to see if your DVD is listed when you click on the plus sign next to CD/DVD devices. [if you have a yellow mark next to your drive, post the relevant information in the comment box below.] If its not listed and you've done the above trouble shooting, your drive is dead and you need to replace under warranty if its less than a year old and you have proof of purchase, You need to contact the drive maker's RMA web page and enter a Model and Serial Number. The serial number will disclose if it was purchased from a retailer or if you purchased it online as a system builder. In any case, these drive rarely have warranties beyond one year. You will simply have to replace the drive and fortunately you can go through NewEgg.com or TigerDirect.ca for a replacement that is slightly more than $30.

BTW, no cleaning routine will help and the only parts using a drive band today is the door open cassette eject tray. Most newer drives have direct drives. Still, if the drive tray won't open, drive a different power plug and see if this clears up your problem or not.

Sorry to bear bad news if you have to replace it, but you'll be back in business as soon as you have a replacement installed.

Regards,
Worldvet

Make sure that you run all of the calibration programs for both drives before recording on them.  They won't record until you do.
They are located in the tools section of the program in the Nero CD-DVD program.
Run the Create Disk option first.  Nero needs to know all of the capabilities of all of your CD and/opr DVD drives.

I have always been using Nero burn software with my LG GSA-2166D DVD RW. Now I bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10. No any writing process has been successful. I have since yesterday spoiled 10 DVD's....


speed of source data is too slow = the hard disk cannot deliver the data fast enough and the burning process stops; this is a sign of a severely fragmented file system and very charged background processes: defragment your hard disk, stop using other programs when burning a disk and use 8X as a recording speed.
 Track Following Error = the laser head in the burner is no longer capable of following the track it has itself burned - the lens is dirty, clean it.

Invalid book address


Hi,
this is to do with settings in Nero.
The book-Type is settings For CD/DVD et,c.
The actual Format the disk has to be written in. If you,ve got the book-type set to write a CD for example, and burned a DVD. it would error as it needs to write more data, than the Disk Allows.
CD 650mb. DVD 4370 mb or equivalent.
I,d uninstall-re-install nero, and ensure you select your type of disk to Compile. Which will automatically select The Correct Book-Type for The compilation required.

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,


This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

DVD+RW compatibility


your dvd only writes to dvd-r and dvd-rw, but writes to both cdr + and - r/rw. To confirm it go into nero tools and nero info tools and all the ticks in the boxes are what your drive supports
