    Did you do that in v10 or v2017? As I mentioned earlier, your copy of v10 is woefully out of date. You're using v10.07 and the last version was v10.6.107. Many changes were made. Also, is your v10 the multimedia suite version or the standard version? I also mentioned that your v2017 wasn't up to date. Did you update it using the procedure I gave you? Would you try another burn in v2017 after updating?

    I asked about the disc content because I wanted to see exactly what type of disc Roxio was burning. If one had Nero v7 or earlier, you could probably burn a DVD-Audio disc which appears to be what Roxio is burning but I can't confirm it. However, after that, the DVD-Audio was abandoned by consumers. You can burn a DVD-Video disc that has all the same features in all versions of Nero.

    so what I can do is, because I'm migrating to a new PC, I uninstalled the 2017 on the old PC (even though the software auto register w/ Nero website), and kept the old Nero 2010 on the old PC. And I'm days away from installing all the software to the new PC, I can try the above w/ 2017 along w/ its update on the new PC.

    the old Nero 2010 is multimedia, I didn't buy the stand alone, what difference does that make?

    I am hoping Nero allows the new 2017 to register for the 2nd time under my new PC. what do you think? How would Nero see the same serial registered twice on 2 different MAC address?

    But I want to point out, this whole thing is leaning towards the drive somehow does not support 100GB media, eventhough the spec. sheet and the manual of Pioneer of Japan said so. It shouldn't be like that, because Pioneer is a big co. But as mentioned above, I have tried the above w/ the latest ver. of Ashampoo free edition. So even if Nero is out of date, the Ashampoo is still the latest, and they both fail in the similar / same manner.

    ==========================

    a quick question on DVD Audio disc, I never heard of such a thing, have you seen an universal player support it?

    Since you uninstalled v2017 from the old computer, the serial number is no longer registered there. As a result, you should have no problem installing and activating on the new computer. What you did is the proper way of doing things. Note that you can only uninstall/reinstall five times before the patents need to be re-activated.

    There were two "types" of each version that you could buy. One is the basic version which has been called various things over the years. The premium versions, which also been called various things, includes more features, particularly in Nero Vision/Nero Video and Nero MediaHub/Nero MediaHome. Nero is now only offering only one "type," starting with v2021 (watch, they'll change that with v2022 and make me a liar. :D) If you have the multimedia version of v10, when you open Nero MediaHub and click on Market, there will be nothing there for you to buy (of course none of that is available for purchase today).

    I don't know what you mean about not buying the "standalone" version of v10. You could buy it either in a box or by download but once installed, they're both the same thing. There was no subscription version.

    Right now I'm up in the air as to whether the problem is with the discs or the drive. Note that the actual burn process is controlled by communication between the drive firmware and Windows. The errors are a result of the drive' response to commands sent by Windows. I don't know how to contact Pioneer about this drive or any drive, for that matter unless one can use the Contact Us at their website.

    it's definitely not the media. There can't be that many dead media between Sony and Mitsubishi. This is 1 of the very few problem that I can't solve last year, and I have been in this IT industry for 29 years.

    when I said stand alone, I meant buying "nero burn ROM" by itself. In which I'm sure I bought the Nero 2010 suite instead

    by the way, how does these update help? These "Many changes" you mention, how does that help me in this situation? THe truth is , I can't tell any improvement when I burn a 50GB disc from a 2010 version burn vs. a 2017 ver. burn

    If you bought the suite, you would have Nero Vision, Nero Express, Nero Burning Rom, Nero MediaHub (It might have been called KwikMedia after it was updated), Nero Backitup, Nero RescueAgent, CoverDesigner, SoundTrax and WaveEditor. You would see them in SmartStart by click on the button in the lower left hand corner of its screen.

    Regardless, I don't have the release notes for all the updates. However, the BDXL specification wasn't finalized until June of 2010, which is after v10 was released. That's about the time the biggest update to v10 occurred. It's confusing because your early version does allow you to select a BDXL disc. I need to switch hard drives to see what my v10 on another drive, which hasn't been updated, says.

    I should point out that, based on my memory (since I don't have access to either of the old forums), Sony discs were sometimes fussy about which burners they were used in but I forget the reason (write speed, etc.). I used their CD's and DVD's all the time and only occasionally had a problem. I don't think I used their blu-ray discs.

    However, none of that should matter in v2017 except to make sure it's updated. Every version has had some problems that needed to be fixed. Nero didn't do us any favors removing the pages that had the release notes and various downloads for the older versions.

    I do have to ask why you have a resistance to updating the software? As I mentioned long ago, it's free.

    The only other consideration is to make sure the drive is clean by cleaning it with one of those cleaning discs.

    My professor in Electrical Engg. taught me "when someone works, don't touch it". As recent as 2 min. ago, I update my firefox, and now, there is this annoying "For Quick access, place your bookmarks............." that I can't get rid off.

    Whenever there is an update, it fixes some problem, and introduce other problems.

    I hope I'll move to the new PC soon. Believe it or not, the PC parts were purchased January 2, 2019. And it's scratch build as I have to drill some holes on a semi open frame case. It's been sitting here on my desk since. So things are quite busy.

    I agree with the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. However, as I mentioned, practically every new version of Nero had problems, some of which shouldn't have have been there. For instance, v2019 had some problems with Burning Rom. Back with v10, Nero was issuing new updates frequently before the next new version came out. Starting with something like v2016, Nero went to only issuing one update to catch up on everything before the next new version came out. In some cases, one had to wait until the next new version came out to get the fix.

    When I think about it, I don't think you can update v10 from the ControlCenter. You would either have to ask tech support for the updates or I could give them to you.

    For this problem, we should focus on using v2017 since you should be able to update from the ControlCenter.

    One issue I noticed is that your drive uses SATA III. I don't think that's significant but just don't have time to check into to it right now.

    all blu ray drive are SATA, what else can it be?

    I'm switching over to the new PC soon, then I'll install the 2017 Nero at the new PC. I just ordered another new Crucial 1TB NVMe (very impressive, 5 yr. warranty, made in Singapore), this is my 2nd one in 2 mths. I'll do all these upgrade at my new PC at the same time, I hope it arrives in the next few days.

    I was just referring to the difference between SATA II and SATA III. From what I can see, the only difference is the speed.

    See yah when you're up and running on the new one.
