Hi I am having an unusual dvd-r burning problem I hope a dvd genius can help me with? I AM ABLE to burn backups of my dvd's onto DVD-RW, but NOT on DVD-R media using RecordNow DX. DVD-R disk after burn does not play in computer or stand alone dvd player, where the same image burned onto DVD-RW works fine. The burned DVD-R quite often locks up or shows empty. The strangest part is before this problem started I did burn three DVD-R's in a row with no problem using RecordNow. To the best of my knowledge I have not changed anything. Here are the details of my problem; -computer running Win XP with recent hd format this week -using DVD Shrink to create image -DVD drive is Lite-On LDW-401S (drivers up to date, new firmware available but manufacturer suggests using only if having problems, and I really doubt this is a firmware problem. I may try this as last resort) -using Memorex 4X DVD-R media -I have also tried the Nero demo software, but same problem. Nero uninstalled and system rollback to avoid conflicts. -Using RecordNow options setup by default (quick summary - mulitsession: load last track, recording type TAO (not closed), file system: UDF with Joliet) -while burning no other applications running and have tried different record speeds -DMA is enabled -ASPI installed The really unusual part is DVD X COPY Standard Edition and DVD Decrypter work fine. Both make working copies on DVD-R media, but neither work with DVD Shrink so I can reauthor. I think one of these three issues might be causing the problem; 1) The DVD burner itself. This is unlikely as RecordNow RW's and DVD X Copy R's work. (and DVD Decrypter R's works also) 2) The DVD media. Again probably not as it did work three times in a row, and DVD X Copy works with same media. 3) Software issue with Record Now. Seems to me most likely I don't have software configured correctly or something is not set up right. Thanks in advance, Lawrence.
