My burner isn't burning DVDs properly!

Hi, i have had my lite on dvd-dual layer burner for a over a year now, burning over a 100 dvds using nero 7 without any problems. But it developed a problem about a month ago, the dvds that i burn now, when played back on a dvd player the movie starts sticking half way through and stops playing. I haven't done any thing to the computer and i have tried other burning software, burning at a slower speed x4 and compressing the movie to 2gb to see if it was the discs but still the discs start to stick half way through. i use princo dvd-r 1x8 discs. Is the laser on the dvd getting tired? do you know of any problems like this? please tell me if theres a solution to this problem? thanks.

Try a different brand of DVD and use a lens cleaner it just may need a clean up.

Sounds like the lens is dirty. Run a cd cleaner through the drive. That should take care of it.

Burns dvds fine wont burn dual layer dvds

This is in no way a proper technical answer, but certain DVD burners like specific brands of media, I have heard this for years and it's true, but you seem to have tried several types of media brands. I would try a -R, from Verbatum, if that doesn't work take it back and try a different model, you have done everything that you are supposed to.I found that the -R works best for me in my desktop and laptop, one is Lightscribe other is not, the -R works best for me.

Low burn speed

I had the same problem before upgrading my RAM. Seems video burning software like nero are RAM hogs; if you do not have a large amount of RAM then it slowers the burning speed down to a crawl.[ BTW I didn't get maximum burning speeds using nero on a Windows Vista computer until I upgraded to 2 GB RAM] Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Drive Can't Burn DVDs

If it is a combo drive then you cannot burn DVD's with it.
A combo drive can burn CD's and play DVD's

If it is a burner, then install Nero and burn DVD's with that. But as above, if it says it's a COMBO drive, then it can't.
