    Same problem here. I have a sony dru-720 burner. Was working
    perfectly on DL discs and after burning 4 discs it suddenly stopped
    burning DVDs. Data files are no problem on any type of disc. I cleaned
    up my temp directories and cleaned up the registry, ran anti virus,
    root revealer and hijack this. Found nothing. Reinstalled software did
    rollback.Replaced burner with Sony Dru-840. Same problem.
    What' next?? Any ideas before scrubbing drive?? Replace with different
    make?? Cam

Seems i "downgraded" from a Plextor 716A. My Sony DRU-840A refuses to burn in multi session mode. I bought the retail version of Nero 8. Now i am suggested to update the DRU-840 firmware. Either the firmware update doesn't exist, or its hidden really well on the Sony website.... Maybe i should just throw this Sony away and replace with another Plextor... AHA!!! I think I'll do that!!!!

I have window xp my dvd burner worked fine before now it doesnt


What do you mean "it just stays there"? Can you be a bit more specific? The writing speed doesn't really mean anything apart from being able to burn quicker.

The "drivers" for the sony dru 710a can be downloaded from here:
http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/112#drivers

I would also update the Firmware version too.

Hope that works

Tim

Hi there,

Download the most current drivers for your Chipset. Uninstall the drive via Device Manager, restart your system and let Windows install it. Update to the latest Windows Service Pack. Download the updated Firmware version and internal drivers from here:

Sony DRU-810A fails while burning second layer


Hello,

The Problem Is That You Do Not Have Enough Space In Your Windows Drive.

If You Have Just about 1GB Still May Be Not Enough According To Your ROM

You Should At least Have 4.5GB Free In Your Windows Drive For Disc"s to Perfectly Burn.

Good Day,
