Download the Windows Vista startup disk .ISO file. A .ISO file is a "disk image" file, meaning that it is a compressed archive of all the files that would normally be found on a CD contained in one simple file. Microsoft does not provide users with an official Windows Vista startup disk. Because of this, a number of services online provide their own for users free of charge. Download the .ISO (see Below) file to your computer's desktop. http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/download-windows-vista-x64-recovery-disc/ Put a blank DVD in your computer's DVD writer. Open your DVD burning program. As long as your program can burn .ISO files, you can use any software you'd like. Burn the .ISO file to a DVD by selecting the "File" menu, clicking on "Open" and locating the .ISO file from your hard drive. Next, click the "Burn" button in your DVD burning software and the files contained in the .ISO will be burned to the disk. Label your Windows Vista startup disk with a pen or marker and keep it in a place where you won't lose it. If your computer is damaged to the point where you would need a startup disk, you won't be able to use your computer to make one. It is very important that you do not lose this disk.
Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:
Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.
If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a
data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier
or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:
After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
You have two data burning options:
Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can
burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a
fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it
will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your
project if you need to keep track.
Either of the above options are a great way to not only back up your
projects, but make multiple copies to reduce encoding time!
What software do u use to write DVDs on both PCs...
if they are different then that may be the issue....
dont spoil the DVDs....
try DVD RW disks...that way you can erase them later...
i too have the same DVD writer, not had any issue in either XP or Win7....i have dual boot and have made many movie DVDs using both OS...i use Nero and Power2Go of LG(the install disk that came with the LG DVD writer has this great software...."LG Power tool")
try this tool...it should work...
the inbuilt DVD creator in Win7 has some issues with DVD creation....due to non compatibility of graphics card and display drivers (WDDM)....+ you may not have the correct codec required to burn DVDs.....
get the FFDSHOW codec from google.... and install it...shutdown and restart and then try...
let me have a feedback pls...
Let's make sure that Nero is not causing the problem. Try this: -Insert a blank CD or DVD -Find a file that you want to burn to disc -Right-Click on said file and select Send To --> DVD-RW Drive (D:) (or whatever your recordable drive is labeled) -Open My Computer, double click on your recordable drive - You should see your file ready to be burned to disc - In the left-hand panel, you should see a link that says "Burn these files to disc" or something similar - click this link and see what happens
If this process works and properly burns a disc, your issue is not with your drive but with Nero. If this process does NOT work, then you may need to reinstall drivers for your DVD writer or replace the drive if it is faulty.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
you can open a .iso with power iso or alcahole120% this will install a virtual drive you can mount your image on this will act as a pretent disc so you can cheack your file is working before you burn it you can also burn it with this softwear think of a .iso as a zip file
The reason for this error is that there is a conflict between HD Writer and other software on your computer. I was trying to find a solution for weeks before Panasonic advised me to remove other DVD burning software on my computer. I therefore removed Pinnacle and DVD decrypter (which I believe was causing the problem), reinstalled HD Writer and then everything worked fine. Note however that the DVD-RW discs I had tried to use before were corrupted and couldn't be reformatted and therefore once you have removed the other software and reinstalled HD Writer, start again with new DVD-RW discs. Good Luck.
If you have Nero of Power ISO installed you can right click the .iso file and there should be a command in the shortcut menu that states "burn with Nero" or burn iso with Power ISO, etc. this should apply to other disc burning software you have installed.
As you may know, .iso files are a compressed disc image file that contains the data layout for a complete CD or DVD. Most of the time, burning an iso image from first opening your disc burning software is more difficult but can be done by hunting through your software's menu commands.
If all you are looking to do is write a DVD (ie, burn ordinary OS-managed files onto DVD, without transcoding, etc.), or write transcoded DVD-structured files, or an .iso image file, then don't even try to use Nero. Use ImgBurn, it is 500% better for those kinds of tasks, and it's freeware. I use it to burn DVDs but use Nero to transcode files and create the VIDEO_TS folder files. I then use ImgBurn to convert them to an .iso file, then burn it to DVD, also using ImgBurn. URL: http://www.imgburn.com/
You unit is faulty.. replace the unit with a new one. The CD Write Laser has probably "Burnt Out" or perhaps the "Quadrant Detector" has faulted.. either way a new unit is only way solve ya problem ... sry :(
