DVD burner problems

We've tried 4 different DVD burners, 3 internal, 1 external, and have the same problem. You can load files and burn 1 DVD, but after that is done and you try to do another one from different files, it will not 'unload' the first one. You have to reboot the system to create another DVD. We have installed the latest BIOS for the motherboard, but it did not solve the problem. Computer specs: Windows XP, Intel D975XBX2 motherboard, Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor, 2 GB Ram (The DVD burner in the 'Product' list is not necessarily the one we've used, but I had to pick one to submit my question.) Any suggestions?

Re: DVD burner problems

THE problem is your registery or other temp files windows or the software is using. TRY formatting and reinstalling. I dont think its hardawe i strongly believe its a problem with your windows or burning software
YOu can also try anoter burning software.. BUT I THINK youd need to format to solve your problem

Dvd burner won't burn!

do you still have the software for your external dvd...if so...uninstall start all over like it is brand new...reinstall and reconnect the dvd....this shoud do the trick...

all dvd movie take 2-3 hrs to burn (some even 4 hrs..depends on the lenght)...and for the future never just turn off any data transfering devices....not even your pc when windows is updating....

New DVD burner won't read blank DVD-r's.

Make sure your burner software supports your burner. Older software doesn't read and write the newer burners properly.

DVD - Slow burning speeds

Unlikely that there is a problem with the drive itself, most likely cause is software settings - which burning software are you using? if it is nero 6 then once you click burn after arranging the files for burning, the burn info page should pop up. click on the burn tab and make sure that "determine maximum speed" is checked and that write speed is set to maximum. hopefully this should solve it, if not try setting write speed to one of the slower settings listed and see if you get a better result. Sometimes dvd drives can slow right down when you are trying to push them to go at maximum. if you want to check what it should be able to do, try also worth trying is updating the drivers to make sure you have the most recent version. Another thing worth trying if you haven't already is try a different brand or type of disc - just occasionally there can be clashes with certain types and burners - if this seems to solve it, don't throw your pack of discs away, give them to someone with a different burner. The final possibility is a power supply problem. If your PC's power supply unit has spare connectors for a drive then try a different one - possibly your supply doesn't have enough guts to run a more modern drive - take the drive out and try it in another pc with a higher power supply wattage rating. Hope this helps :)
