Trouble with DVD Burning (Using Ahead Nero 6)


A

Andrew Murray

I'm having trouble burning DVDs - Nero is saying the disk type is
incompatible.
The hardware is a Liteon DVD-R/RW-CD-R/RW (model No SHM-165P6s) combo drive
using TDK DVD+R disks.

PC is 1.4ghtz PIV 512 meg ram, Windows XP Professional

It burns CD's OK but doesn't like the DVD disk, saying incompatible disk
type.

Under the "Recorder Information" in Nero it says it supports:
DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, CD-R/RW.

Being that "DL" stands for Dual Layer, I can't see any indication on these
disks I'm using that they are dual layer; therefore it seems they are single
layer and not compatible in this drive....

This is strange because I have previously burned files to DVD+R (1-16 speed,
single sided 4.7GB).
The specs state they are suitable for data, backup, photo, video & TV
recording

But it seems this drive is more friendly towards DL disks.
Any help appreciated.

Have you downloaded the latest upgrade for nero6 it is: Nero-6.6.1.15a and
nve-3.1.0.25-no-yt.
Just a thought.

Have checked for product updates and downloading now. although it seems
Nero doesn't support DVD+R's anyway. For some unknown reason, yet does
support DVD+R DL.

The only time I see incompatible disk is when I have selected the wrong
recorder in Nero Express. Like CD instead of DVD.

Using Nero 5.5. Supports my TDK 4X DVD+R burner, and I only use DVD +R
media.

Why aren't you using - media vice + media?
You quoted: "Liteon DVD-R/RW-CD-R/RW"
