I do apoligize if this is in the wrong spot but it is my first thread. I have a problem and hope that someone may help me. I have 2 different Compaw Presario's, both have the same O.S.,( XP PRO ). Both have the same software. But the drives are different and here is my problem. 2 weeks ago I purchased TDK blank media and it would nero would not burn onto the disc's. It would stop and say something like ILLEGAL DISC, but when I put a FujiFilm disc in it would burn to it. Well this week I purchased 2 seperate packs of Memorex blank media and it will not burn in one computer but it will in the other and I get the same errors from Nero and the same errors from dvdshrink. Here are the dvd drives: Computer 1 has: (Compaq DVD-ROM DVD-115) and (_NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A). Computer 2 has: (LITE-ON DVD SOHD-167T) and (PHILIPS DVD+RW-D28). I just do not see where the problem is here. My software consists of Nero 6, DVDSHRINK, DVD DECRYPTER, ANYDVD. It seems that the problem is with the media and the hardware not being compatible but I would like to get a Veterans opinion, seeing as how I have only been doing this for 2 months. Thanks in advance and please accept my apology if this is in the wrong place but I have searched the forum and found no answers. Sincerly, Walnut!!!!
