Target disc not empty


Target disc ( this is what you've selected to burn TO) is not empty(is not a blank disc). You should try a different blank disk, or else you have your source and destination backwards.

Keep getting "Target Overflow" error message, even


you may have a bad ROM. If you have a multiple target unit, switch the source from the ROM to one of writers and try copying that way, if it copies then it confirms that the ROM is defective.
If you have a Single target unit, check your master disc under disc info, depending on which controller you have it should be under utility or disc info. Once in disc info it should tell you the size of your master disc, for DVD-R it should be under 4488MB, for DVD+R it should be under 4482MB. Then double check the master in the PC just to confirm.

When i push copy on my DVD burner it says,Target Overflow,what do that means becouse it wont let me burn nothing its a[ TEAC 1 1 DVD/CD duplicator]


It happens to me also ALL the time with mine. I have a 7 disc duplicator machine I do for weddings and special events. And it's a real pain and costly to have that come up when you need the project done soon. My solution is to change the brand on the master disc. Burn another copy of the master disc on your computer to another brand and then use that brand as the new "master" in the duplicator. (1 sollution)


"Target Overflow" basically means that either sometimes the master disc has too much information on it to burn than the disc you want to copy can hold, or sometimes a CD may be in by mistake instead of DVD. If you have a Dual layer DVD disc you want to make copies of and you only have the basic 4.7GB standard DVD blank disc..it's not enough storage space on the disc to burn so you will see that error also. It should really say "not enough space to burn) lol..but I guess that's asking too much.

Sometimes all is correct with the DVD size and it'll come up for no reason (usually the master disc is still spinning and hasn't stopped but you've already pressed the "Copy" button, it's not "ready" so an error of "target overflow" will come up)

I've had mine for 6 years so I've done alot of testing and trial and error to come to the above conclusions.
I find that these brands work for the best "thorough" burns.

What do you when it says target disck is not ready on a duplicator


Your disk *WITH* the data is the "source" disk.

Your "blank" disk is the "target" media.

Try a different "blank" disk.
If not any better, then take the unit to a computer technician, to trouble-shoot the hardware that is used to write onto the "target" media.

My Teac 1x1 dvd/d11A/kit burner/Dvw/D11A: will not copy Dvd, keep getting the message: "target drive not ready". Unit copies cd's alright.


whatever software you are using to burn dvd;s, make sure the right burner drive is selected. if it is selected properly and still having an issue. that means the dvd writer is busted and can't detect a blank disc place into it. in that case, have it replaced.

Samsung SHW08A DVD±RW doesn't burn dvd+r


Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.

Won't burn CD-r or DVD-R


Hi,
make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

DVD writing problem -'HW error, Timeout on logical unit'


What software are you using to burn and what type of dvd are you trying to burn.(+), (-), or (RW). Do you have a copy of NERO? http://www.filehippo.com has NERO (I think) try a different then try a different disk. Some where it even said to try defragging the hard drive...It wouldn't hurt. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
