Question about Sony (DRU720A) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Half-way burn? We have two Sony DVD RW 720A(s). We have had absolutely no problem burning movies for the past 2 years. As of late, we have had multiple problems burning movies. I can't even recall the last time we were successfully able to burn a movie. The CD burner works perfectly fine, but when you attempt to burn a movie, it will say "copy completed" - we use 1 Click Copy - but if you try to watch the movie, toward the end of the disc, it will start getting choppy and freeze. You can actually see a spot on the bottom of the disc where something went wrong. Sometimes, it will say "copy completed" and the disc won't play at all. And at other times, the disc will act like it burned okay, but there will be less than half of an inch of content on the bottom of the disc, so it definitely isn't right. Our PC is up to date on everything. We have Windows XP. Everything else is working great... it's just the DVD burning part of it... We're really confused.... Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! -Jess & John

When I burn movies from my hp laptop the movie burns fine, but when i watch the movie on my dvd player it plays fine until 1/2 way and then freezes. What can I do to stop this from happening?


Use a high density CD-R or DVD-R disc not the RW (read-write) ones to sustain quality. Also, when you are using Nero, check the option "Verify Disc integrity" before clicking the "burn" command so that the disc will be verified on its data integrity after the burning process is completed.

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD


CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats
