Just got a new Sony 710a Recorder and am having nothing but troubles and I was wondering if anyone out there can help a brother out. I am using DVD Shrink 3.2 making the files at 4.3 Gigs to ensure sufficant disc space. Windows XP and up to date. 710a firmware upgraded to BY2X since I also had the same trouble using the original firmware. Using Nero OEM that was bundled software that came with the burner and updated Nero to the lastest 6.6. Max speed was set at 1x and 2x to see if I had any difference in result. No difference. Once shrink is done I had it set to auto burn with Nero and I get failed to burn at 2X error while trying to do the Lead-In writing. So I took a different approach and disabled Nero to start burning after Shrink. Manually opening Nero Express I started the burn process again. This time it passed the write Lead in, burned 100% of the movie, this time it failed to write the Lead-out process. Not running any programs and has plenty of memory and disk space. Anyone know what maybe wrong? Thanks for your input!
