Ok so here is my problem. Im using a laptop and trying to burn a DVD but i cant. I am also using an external Lite-ON DVDRW SOHW-812S DVD Burner. Usually when I insert a disk in my drive Nero picks it up and chooses a speed for me, but now it dosent. I found out when this happens, when I try to burn the disk It says that its burning but at the very end it stops and says burn failed. when I try to burn with My laptops burner I get this Log from nero. 2:44:17 AM #19 CDR -1135 File Writer.cpp, Line 302 Write error D: HL-DT-ST DVD+RW GCA-4040N 2:44:17 AM #20 Text 0 File ThreadedTransfer.cpp, Line 228 all writers idle, stopping conversion 2:44:17 AM #21 Text 0 File ThreadedTransfer.cpp, Line 222 conversion idle, stopping reader 2:44:17 AM #22 Phase 127 File dlgbrnst.cpp, Line 1725 Generating DVD high compatibility borders 2:44:17 AM #23 Phase 129 File dlgbrnst.cpp, Line 1725 Generating DVD borders completed successfully 2:44:18 AM #24 Phase 38 File dlgbrnst.cpp, Line 1725 Burn process failed at 4x (5,540 KB/s) Ive had this problem like a week ago but when i restarted my computer all worked fine, but now no luck with that. I THINK I have the latest firmware. I also tried using IMG-Burn but i get the same results. I also installed ASPI and Nero Info-tool says that they are fine. I dont know what else to do. So I came here to AD because you guys never let me down. Any help??? EDIT: Also when thins happens Windows dosent shutdown properly. It get stuck on the "Windows is Shuting Down" screen and I need to power down manually.
