    All of a sudden Nero began throwing up a message telling me that my CD-R disc is unwritable, that it's the wrong media type, that I need to use CD-RW. I have never used a CD-RW disc and have never encountered this problem with Nero before. Nothing has changed as far as hardware or software. I have scoured Nero's settings in hopes of resolving the problem but cannot find anything that will do the trick. What gives? Anyone out there have any suggestions?

    The same happened to me when I tried to burn a .CUE/.BIN of a VCD with Nero 5.5.9.9. OK for other formats (Data, Audio). I used Alcohol (you could use CDRWin) and everyehing went well. If someone has a solution, it will be good for me, too.

    The solution is a freebie burning program called burnatonce.Seriously...

    Data CD using Burning Rom v6.3.1.10. The files were regular winrar archives... never had probs with them before. Tried various settings for ISO and burn parameters... DAO, TAO, finalize - no finalize, multisession - no multisession. You name it, I tried it. I had Alcohol 120 on my machine and thot there might be conflicts so I removed it and still no go. I'm stumped. Below is a burn log if anybody's interested.

    I have been having the same problem...
    I'm using the latest nero v.6...
    Can't burn anything...
    I'll try burnatone...
    I use 4 diff brands but I don't think that's it...
    Is there a solution to this?

    Burner is CRW3200E... But, I think I figured it out. Seems the problems may have been with the discs themselves. A friend owed me some blanks and he gave me a pack of Memorex... must've been a bad batch or something. I went out and bought a pack of Verbatim, which is what I normally use and they burned with no problems. Guess I'll stay away from Memorex in the future. Thanks everyone for the input.

    Before you do anything Drastic, go to Nero Smartstart and make sure CD is selected on the top right tab on the menu, instead of DVD-R. I had a similar issue but it was fixed by clicking CD.

    Then give it a try.

    Worth a shot!

    Im still having problems burning...
    I have tried nero 6 latest and also burnatonce...
    I've tried 4 diff brands sony, Memorex, one with out brandname...it's like silver, and phillips...
    It's burns and after 100% the cd pop's out but when I put it back in nothing is burned onto it...
    I've tried burning data, audio, and even a vcd...
    I've put in the audio cd to a cdplayer and won't recognize...even in other computers...
    It's really getting annoying...
    Is there a solution to this?
