Sonic DVD burner

I'm having a problem burning onto a disc using sonic. "No media" is displayed and wont let me continue with the last step to burn. No problems with burning cd's and a movie file is available to burn from. What am I doing wrong?? I bought DVD+R disks.( is that compatable?) Would that cause a problem?? HELP!!!

It depends if your burner can cope with + discs. If it is a - drive, then the answer is no it would work with + discs.

SOURCE: problem copying a movie onto a lightscribe hp dvd +r media disc, using my hp dvd940e dvd writer

The semaphore timeout period has expired refers to the fact that the driver is no longer communicating with the device and failed. Each time a CD Burner is setup for a CD Burning session the burner hardware will perform a 15 step power test to determine the OPC for a Blank Media Disc, OPC meaning Optimum Power Calibration. This test also takes place during the CD Burning process so the CD Burner can determine the best burn speed and method for the disc; this test is called 'Running Optimum Power Calibration'. Although the test is performed by the hardware of the CD Burner, the device initializes the CD Burning Software for the test to take place. This is one reason why your software may report the "Power Calibration Error" or ?Calibration Error Full?. With Power Calibration errors they can be caused by different factors and sometimes difficult to locate, especially if the errors are at random. Below are the known factors that will cause the Power Calibration Errors and how to check each factor, it is important that each point is considered if wanting to get to the bottom of the error. Power Calibration Errors can occur when OPC or ROPC tests for the media disc so the condition of the disc, brand of disc and even the firmware for the CD Burner can be the cause for the errors occurring. A device such as a CD Burners can have different problems if there is a power consumption issue with the system and the Power Calibration Error is just one of those problems. If using either an internal or external CD Burner make sure to disconnect all other devices, except the hard drive and Burner, before attempting to burn a disc. Double check all cables for any faults and if possible test with a 2nd Data Cable. It is also advisable to disconnect the power connection for the CD Burner and test with a spare connector. If you have no trouble with other discs, use them and put to one side the lightscribe, other than that try the burner in another pc or with other burning software, as you can see it's quite ridiculous what problems burners can create.

Disc wont play the last 4 songs?


Bad burn - try using a slower burning speed or, if it's the same - low quality batch of disks, junk them and buy a new spindle.

Downloading a programn


If you have a DVD burner in your system, you probably have software that will allow you to burn disks already installed on your machine. The most common programs are Roxio, Sonic or Nero. I haven't used the Roxio software for a long time (since version 3), so I don't know how much as changed in its use. With Sonic or Nero, you just tell it what kind of disk you want to burn (for a program or data file, select data disc). Then add the files you would like to burn to the disk and click on the burn button. A few minutes later you will have a copy of your program burned onto the disk.

If for some reason you do not have any third-party burning software installed on your computer, you can insert a blank CD or DVD into the drive and when the autoplay options appear, select the option for having Windows prep the disk to burn files to it. Or you can even use Windows Media Player to do this too, but you would need to go into open up the Burn menu and select the Data CD or DVD option (instead of Audio CD).

Hope this helps!

Problem with sonic record now


You have to format the cd to prep it for burning. Go to your operating system's help and support and look for formatting a cd and follow the steps to do so prior to burning pictures. then you just drag and drop your pics onto your cd drive.
