    So I'm hoping someone can give me some suggestions here, as I'm now burning nothing but coasters :(

    About a week ago, I was burning fine with Nero 5.5, but then all of a sudden I start burning nothing but coasters. I changed absolutely nothing, no installs, no uninstalls, literally nothing was different. After going through almost everything I could think of, I decided to blow away everything that was related to the drive (KHypermedia/Cyberdrive DX082D) and install the latest version of Nero. I now have cleaned out all old aspi references, removed all CD/DVD software, and installed Nero 7.7.5.1.

    Here's the real problem though, Nero appears to burn fine, it even verifies that the DVD is fine and readable, however, when I go to try to access the burned DVD, I get nothing. The drive doesn't register that a disc is even in the drive, yet when I go into Nero and check the disc info, it shows there's a track there with volume info that jives with what I burned.

    The only thing that I can figure is that there's some kind of problem with the lead-in/lead-out. It appears that data is being written, but that those 2 elements may not be writing correctly for some reason. So, I updated the firmware to the latest version I could find (150B) resulting in no difference whatsoever. The media is the exact same as I've been using, and I rather doubt it's a media quality issue as I've never had an issue with them before (I've been using HP DVD+R 16x for what it's worth). I'm now out of ideas as to what could be causing this, and if I'm correct in believing the problem is with the lead-in/lead-out, I have no idea how I can address it.

    Anyone have any further ideas or even suggestions for things I can try? I saved the log from my last attempt even though it said that the burn completed successfully. Help! :)

    Have you tried to play the burned DVDs in a standalone player?

    That burner is a little dated and I suspect the firmware is as well.

    HP media is not the best. Some of their 16X +R disks are made by CMC Magnetics, a low cost/low quality manufacturer. Good quality media is Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden, and Made in Japan labeled Sony and Fuji.

    Nero isn't able to ID the disk's manufacturer which may be due to your burner's firmware not being up to date enough to ID the disk.

    You might try ImgBurn to burn your ISO: http://www.imgburn.com

    You might also try some 8X media and see if that makes any difference.

    You might try to see if ISOBuster finds stuff on the disk.

    Well, it's a data disc not a video DVD, so there's nothing to pop it into except another PC :)

    Yeah, it's a couple of years old (maybe 3?), but the firmware is as current as possible. I don't believe there's a newer one available anywhere, at least according to this. But if you know of somewhere else I can find another resource for firmware updates, I'd love to know.

    Yeah, but as I said, I haven't had any problems with them in the past and I'm burning at only 4X normally (I've also tried it at 2.4X with the same results).

    It's not an ISO, it's normal data, but is there something special about imgburn that makes it a better choice over Nero?

    I completely forgot about ISObuster. I'll give that a try and see if it can see anything, though I imagine it won't, as doesn't it read the info off a disc based off the filesystem that's handled/mounted by windows? Unlike Nero which I believe is using direct access?

    Regardless, thanks for the suggestions!

    I'm pretty sure you have the newest firmware for that burner. I don't think it's updated/supported any longer which is the case for most burners of that age. This burner only burned +R media when first released. I suspect the firmware can't ID and deal with 16X media very well which is why I suggested trying 8X media. When the burner can't specifically ID the media as in this case, it resorts to using a default write strategy which is not always successful.

    Part of the problem with low quality media is that you never know when you'll get into a really bad batch of it. That may or may not be the case here as I have no idea who the actual manufacturer is. HP's +R 16X media is usually made by either CMC Magnetics or Philips, neither of which is considered good quality. You might try the Nero InfoTool, Nero CD-DVD Speed Test, or DVD Identifier to ID the disk manufacturer.

    Have you tried reading the disks in another drive or on another system?

    Can you burn CDs?

    I suggested using another program, ImgBurn, to rule out Nero as the problem. Use the Nero Image Recorder to make a Nero nrg image file and burn that with ImgBurn.

    Try running the Nero 7 Driver Clean Tool: http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Driver_CleanTool_and_RegistryChecker.html

    Also try going back to an earlier restore point when stuff worked.

    Did you run a Nero Clean Tool before installing the new Nero?
