    For a long time I was able to burn my backup copies of DVD movies with ease using DVD shrink and Nero. Then I started having problems. So I bought a new Liteon DVD burner and got Nero 6. Now I can't get one DVD burned successfully that I can read. So far I have tried burning with DVD Shrink where it automatically uses Nero, I have tried using Nero Burning rom and burning the Video files manually and I have even burned an ISO file with DVD Decrypter. Each time the DVD won't playback and isn't even recognised in the Drive !!!.
    Can someone please tell me what to try next !

    Additionally, try burn to HD first to check if that's o.k..

    @rusty56, post relevant section of Nero log, minus serial number which usually begings with 1A21 or similar. Even successful burns will probably have telltale clues in the log, such as crap media, too high a burn speed, firmware etc etc

    @rusty56 - Nero log is in c:\Program Files\ahead\Nero\NeroHistory.txt (don't forget to chop serial number). The log is appended to by all burns, good or bad, so you can copy/paste the bits you want.


    as for Verbatim's (my fave media, but there are others that other ppl swear by), i swear by 8x datalife[bold]plus[/bold], but as per my sig, i only burn at 4x. Even tho my setup is more than adequate & up to date, the 2 Verb's i burnt at 8x crapped out on me, ie when i used dvdinfopro (free download) to check the discs, they both failed the crc check (i think they had burnt 100% in Nero). I haven't seen any higher speed ones yet myself so am buying up as many 8x as i can afford at the moment.

    (excerpt from http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/155431) -

    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 12x (MCC.....003)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 16x Advanced AZO (MCC.....004)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 4x (MCC.....002)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 4x Pastel (YUDEN000-T01-000)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 8x (MCC.....003)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 8x Advanced AZO (MCC.....003)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+R 8x Printable (MCC 003)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD+RW 2.4x (MCC.....A01)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD-R 4x (MCC 01RG20)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD-R 4x (TYG01.......)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD-R 8x Advanced AZO (MCC02RG20)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD-RW 1x (MCC 00RW11N9)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD-RW 2x (MCC 01RW11n9)
    Verbatim DataLifePlus SERL DVD+RW 4x (MKM A02)

    Basically Verbatim (datalifeplus anyway) are s'posed to be some of the best you can get, there are loads of Verbatim threads around, i'm subscribed to quite a few as i am eagle-eyed about Verb's -

    and finally, (i post this a lot lately) here's my reasoniong for keeping to 4x (with v good media such as this you should be able to go higher speed once you're happy with everything working correctly but i don't mind the 15mins that 4x takes) -


    Happy reading !

    This Nero Log doesn't make any sense to me , so if anyone can figure out what is wrong please let me know. I did manage to burn succesfully 2 movies so at least I know my Nero does work. I thought the problem may be that the size if the files were too large because the 2 disks that were burned successfuly were smaller movies than the ones that didn't work. But this log of the last movie I tried to burn seems to debunk that idea because it was re-authored to just the main movie and it still didn't work.

    <sharp intake of breath such as the proverbial car mechanic>.......

    CMC Mag media - urghhh !, most ppl would say these are the absolute
    pits....

    DMA could probably do with being set on your other cd/dvd
    drives; (it's set on the burner).

    Rest of Nero log looks ok i think..

    -
    that's fine, but reminds me, it would be worth setting your target
    size in DVD shrink, etc etc to say 4300MB thus avoiding the very
    edge of discs (you're fine here, 3703MB but couldn't remember if we
    mentioned that).

    Looks like your firmware is quitre up to date -
    http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?category=4&manufactor=17
    but saying that its a dual layer so is quite a new burner anyhow...

    Hi Creaky

    so you think it is the disks. They have HP's logo and details all over them. Funny how a file of this size produces a disk that my drive burns then won't read ???

    How do you change the DMA setting from off to on ?? The only other drive I have is a CD-rom. The rest are virtual's I think created by Alcohol 120%. Maybe the old DVD-rom I replaced may be one of them .

    Suns up in Sydney got to get the kids to school !!

    cheers
