Optiarc DVD RW AD-5170A ATA not writing DVDs

When I try to write a movie to a x16 maxell DVD-R blank disc, using Nero 7 set to 'fit to disc', I get an error message saying 'insufficient space on disc'. The 1st 3 diss from a pack of 25 wrote ok, but when I inserted the 4th disc I got the error message. I tried several discs from the same pack and got same eror each time. I then tried using Windows Vista DVD maker but it failed again.

I then tried writing the same movie to disc using my HP Laptop and also got the same error.

Finally I used one of these discs in my Sony DVD Recorder, to record a TV program and the disc worked fine.

Any idea what the problem could be?



hello,
I have a pack of Maxwell DVD-R and have burned several DVD's from Nero 7 and 8. I converted AVI files into the DVD using nero, and then burned them to the disks. The DVD's play fine on my computer using nero showtime, but when I try to play them in my playstation 2, some say (tv format not recognized), and others play half of the movie, and then it says disk error. I have a friend who has a brand new DVD player, and it plays all of these DVD's without problem. Can anyone help, I have played other DVD-R's on my ps2 with no problem, is something wrong with my drive (optiarc DVD RW AD-7190A)

That's not true you clueless ******. It's the dvd writer/reader. It tends to give those faulty errors and i didnt find a way to fix it as well.

I need to know if my DVD Drive can burn dual layer Discs. The Discs are DVD+R DL and my dvd drive is an Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200A ATA. Thanks


Hi anternidrumm,

According to the site below, the drive can burn dual layers discs:

"The 20x DVD multi writer opens up new dimensions for flexible read and write functions. This high-performance DVD/CD-burner is able to read your DVDs at a speed of 16x and CDs at 48x. It also brings fascinating dynamics into play when writing your blank disks. Now it can even write DVD-R DL two layer media at 12x, while reaching a speed of up to 20x for DVD+R and DVD-R. DVD+R9 and DVD+RWs are processed at 8x and DVD-RWs at 6x. And DVD-RAM can be recorded with up to 12x DVD speed. So how fast can it burn my CDs, you might ask? Even here, with speeds of 48x (CD-R) and 32x (CD-RW), it’s at the top of its class."

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
