While burning some files to disc using NERO v3.0; my NEC DVD+RW rom suddenly stopped reading disc.
I inserted brand new empty DVD-R disc, and still it continued to display message -- Disc can be read.
I then inserted disc both DVD-R and DVD-RW containing data, however, when I switch to My Computer and selected the drive containing my NEC DVD-RW to explore and display its contents, the window was blank.
When a disc is inserted the drive only lights up. Notably missing is the normal sound it makes each time a disc is inserted into it

Ah, the Dual-Layer Problem. Well, first off, you bought an LG. Problem solved!!! ASUS, Pioneer, TSSCorp, Sony, ASUTek USA, or any other brand OTHER than LG is good for burning Dual-Layer DVD's. And for God's sake, LEARN how to use Nero Ultra Edition for your burning needs. It has a technology called "BUFFER." you should really read up on that bro.
you cant burn a disk with a dvd rom you will need both a dvd rw unit and a dvd rw disk to burn any video to a disk if you have both of these the burning program might not support video burning or you might not have selected the right option there are lots of free burning software programs that can burn videos to a disk you might have to burn it as an ISO image http://www.majorgeeks.com/BurnAware_Free_d5839.html BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD,
Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and
DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps
It sounds more like your burning laser went out. DVD and CD Roms use two seperate lasers. One for reading and one for writing. I would check with the manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty to have it replaced
are u copying the disc on the fly i mean directly from dvd rom to dvd rw it sometimes generate this error when reading drive stops giving data due to some error and suddenly bcoz of that the writing drive leavve the session un closed and give an error the solution is first copy ur disc on the hard drive and then copy it on another disc on the fly copying is not safe otherwise also try this
pls try to clean the lens of the drive as follows
due to dusty environment and excessive use lens gets dusty and then have problems in reading or writing dvd 's and cd's
the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens
gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to
clean lcd screens or cotton bud good quality see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got
weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them
everyday for replacements
u can try that software thing as well but i dont think it will solve ur problem
I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem. I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56 It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs. I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages. I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use. Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well. Any suggestions?
depending on what the file you have theres several ways .You didn't say whether you want to copy or make a dvd movie so i'll give you a few ideas get nero once installed then you need a dvd writer-not a dvd rom the rom will only read and the write will write then get some dvd r+ or dvd rw + insert if you want to burn a file from your pc like a dvd movie which is in dvd format,not an avi file from a torrent site but a dvd rip then place a new dvd in your burner select nero and tell it to burn the dvd with the options for dvd if you want to copy a dvd use nero's options to copy there are other programs you can use it's all up to you
