    Ok guys....I'm somewhat of a newbie. Please bear with me. I’ve made 10 successful burns using Memorex DVD-R’s. I’m using DVDshink 3.2 and Nero 7 ultra. My problem is I just tried burning Serenity with Sony DVD-R’s and I’m getting a shut down with Nero. No matter what I try to burn to these Sony disc I keep getting a burn failed, But when I use a Memorex disc it works. Am I doing something wrong or is it the Sony discs? Help I spent $30/100 and already went through 6 discs!

    I think you guys got the wrong idea here. first off Memorex is crappy media! don't use it.... those Sony disks are better quality and should do the job.....Some people had problems with Serenity:
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/274615
    or maybe your drive doesn't like the -R media! try +R media and booktype to DVD-ROMs if your drive allows it:

    1. burning speeds: burn at 4x so there will be less writing errors (rule of thumb is to burn at half the rated speed of the disk--8X disk burn at 4x).
    2. read manual for your stand alone player and use the disks that will play in your player. If your player is less than 2 yrs old then it should play the + or - R disks! I said SHOULD that's why you read the manual.
    3. try booktyping your drive to DVd-ROM so it will make your +R disks more compatible to players. Read this:
    http://k-probe.com/bitsetting-booktype-faq.php
    4. make sure that there are no finger prints or scratches on your disk that make it hard for the player to read the disk!
    5. use good quality media (rule of thumb....buy the ones that are Made in Japan.) Verbatim is a top notch disk and is the only exception to this rule....some Verbatims are made in Taiwan and they are top notch!
    6. and don't burn too close to the outer edge of the disk ..... which will make the disk unreadable! but using good media you will be able to burn close to the edge better than lesser quality media. Just in case I only burn no closer than 4400MB, so if you can set your programs to that, all the better!

    follow these little tips of the trade and you'll have better success! good luck.

    also read this:
    http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/Why-DVDRW-is-superior-to-DVD-RW/
    why the +R media is better than the -R media

    welcome to afterdawn! good luck.

    Did any actual burning take place? Look at the bottom for the discoloration from the burn.

    What speed rate were those Memorex discs?

    What speed rate are the Sony? Probably 1x-16x.


    Newer media,so you may need a firmware update to be able to handle them.

    Use neroinfotool to locate:

    Brand name/model # of your burner
    The current firmware version
    MID codes of your memorex and sony

    Include a nero burn log if you can,but leave out the serial # at the top of the log.

    yes

    16x

    I went back to my Memorex and burned both DVD's with no problem.

    if you use Nero 6, let's have LAST section of your Nero log which lives in c:\program files\ahead\nero\nerohistory.log but DO NOT post your serial number which usually begins with '1A21' or similar.

    if you use Nero 7, let's have LAST section of your Nero log which lives in C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero 7\Core\NeroHistory but DO NOT post your serial number which usually begins with '5C80' or similar.

    either way you can differentiate sections via this section divider "====== *** Nero-Burning Rom, History File *** ======"

    you will see it i hope:)

    do the dvd play? whats the error log from?

    @burngirl2
    Laptop? Who's the manufacturer?
    They are more than likely the ones supporting this drive and would be the ones to get the firmware from.

    I saw from the log (can you repost it?) Burn at Once was turned on.
    Turn that off.
