    Thanks yourtruck.

    Yes, I had both installed nero and also upgraded it a short while after wards. (World deleting ti help?)

    "All" dvd discs won't load. . . can't even watch a movie using them. In fact, I wanted to re-format my computer; however, I can't get it done as the discs that came with the notebook are DVDs and the data cannot be read.

    I tried computer restore, but that won't work either, which is why I wanted to reformat -- get a fresh start for everything, which might have returned everything to normal.

    The part that confuses me is that Nero reads the disc -- copies and burns it, which kind of throws out the thought that the writer is on the way out.

    [Sigh]

Used to run into this all of the time.

  1. Nero and Roxio are famous for this. Writers have their own set of drivers that different burning programs hook into to transfer the data onto the disk. It's a hierarchical structure, and quite often a new installation of software takes over those hooks for itself, leaving a disconnect for the other programs.
  • I bet that you either installed or updated Nero most recently.
For the disc that won't load. Is it just one or all? If a disc gets damaged in the base volume files, this can easily happen.

    I have lived through that same pain, believe me.
    Nero plays it because it's on the top level of the api's, thumbing it's nose at the default player you used to have.
    Is there a Nero Player that comes with your software?
    Three things you could try:


    1. Are you certain that your reader won't read DVD's? If you wanted to reformat, have you attempted to boot from the first install DVD? Sometimes the boot sequences stay intact, before Nero would have a chance to start up.

    2. Do you have a separate partition on your hard drive? Can Nero copy the install DVD's there? Then just set your boot sequence to look there first.

    3. Flash your dvd burner. There should be instructions on their site on how to 'flash' or install original (or updated firmware) for the drive.

dvd fab its around the fifty quid mark but it will let you copy any disc including sony discs

I have an LG writer in my computer which is capable of burning DL (double layer) disks & I use Nero 6 which works okay with normal DVD's but I cannot burn my DL disks which are Moser Bayer 8.5GB disks....


If a software don't give the options to choose between regular disc and 8.5 ( which is the one that is used for the originals movies) then you need another program. DVDFab does give that option. Search for DVD clone. But Nero should have the copy disc option, which you don't have to convert or anything like that, it should work.

Home burned DVDs won't load, commercialy produced DVDs load OK


Try using a programme called dvd flick http://www.dvdflick.net/ to author your dvds and use imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn them. I had similar kind of problem with dvds burned with nero and now use dvd flick and imgburn all the time and have had no problems. They are both free programmes so hopefully they will sort the problem out for you :)

DVD burning problem


if you have tried different dvd-r and dvd-rw discs, unfortunately it's a sign that your writer is failing to read the discs correctly, this normally happens when the writer is about to give up, although it may still write and read cd's but not dvd's
