Error code 204 when backing up to DVD on Acer Aspire 5515

When backing up the recovery disc the disc burns ok. When validating the disc, about 85% of the way through the validation, error code 204 appears and says to insert a blank disc. i have the same problem. just bought the laptop a few days ago. I kept re-doing it and I finally got 2 disks done - then it failed. I will try one more time....this is the 6th time!!! same problem with mine just bought it this morning and backing up the factory default burn the first **** and got the error 204 then i get fed up with 2 try with the same result i go for windows xp but 2 dvd that i have tried end with the same blue screen of death "08e" and i read somewhere that is because of the hardware itself so technically acer is releasing a god damn notebook with a faulty dvd writer .... :(

Won't burn DVD data discs, error code 0x207


Have you looked at this from ACER: http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3410/~/error-code-0x207-shows-during-recovery-dvd-creation I'm sure you already know it seems to be a common problem. Every post seems to point to Media type , can't use RW disk, +or-, seems kink of finicky which seems odd. Only use DVD+R or DVD-R.

Acer aspire 5515 erecovery manager does not work. i can see three options restore from factory or user disc or exit the only one i can choose is exit


try restarting your machine. tap the correct key to get into your bios. most of the time its f2. in there make sure the recovery mode is active/enabled. i believe on an acer its called D2D. then when you restart your machine hold down shift key and tap f8, that should take you through the recovery. let me know if that helps

Good Luck!

BURN FAIL ERROR CODE


I suppose that you have a DVD writer or a HD DVD drive installed by default. I am having the same problems on an Aspire 5920 G with a HDDVD Toshiba and the problem is because of mister Bill Gated and windows vista... the drivers for DVD RW and HD DVDs are all messed up in vista and they enter in conflict with those from the burn program. ERROR 204 corresponds with "POWER CALLIBRATION ERROR" witch means that the beam could not be centered on the row it was writing or that the beam could not write on the disc. You can try a google search for youre dryve type firmware and upgrade it. To find youre drive tipe go to device manager DVD/CDrom drives and copy the name of the device (eg: if it is TOSHIBA DVDW/HD TS-L802A ATA Device search for "TOSHIBA TS-L802A firmware" on the web and upgrade the firmware to the newest on the market). Alternatively you could install windows XP and vurn from XP and you will not experience any problems

Error code 204 when backing up to DVD on Acer Aspire 5515


i was having same problem.  went home and tried again with a different brand of dvd and it worked on the first try.  definetly a different brand and not sure but i think the one at work was just a dvd-r  the one i am using at home that worked is an RW.  maybe the process writes something again so you need this kind of disk.  hope it helps.

I work on the Technical support team for a retailer that sells the 6930. It's been confirmed as an error on the optical drive itself and will need to be returned to the place where you bought it or speak to acer directly

Executing backup to a DVD on Acer Aspire 5515 notebook


Try setting your backup at a slower speed. If your burning backup DVD at 8x speed, Try burning your DVD at 4x speed.
