Q: Solved: Error burning a DVD -R disc : Illegal Disc

I have to be the most unfortunate person when it comes to DVD burning. Im using Nero Express 6 and a LiteOn Burner. I tried twice and I got an illegal disc error, as you can see towards the end of the ff. report : Earlier today, I used a DVD +R disc and was successful. Any ideas???

Hi All,
I know this is 'against the rules' as I have posted this in another section as well but I got no replies so thought I would try this instead.

I have a toshiba satellite L750 running Windows 7 home premium, when trying to burn anything onto a blank disc I get as far as selecting my items and asking it to burn but it keeps telling me to insert a blank disc (which obviously I have). I have tried several different types of blank disc but it dosnt seem to recognise any of them.

Would be very greatful if someone could help.

Many thanks in advance!

Hmmm tricky are you sure they are blank? your drive also may need a firmware update.

I have a HP laptop running Vista Home Premium. I have a DVD+/- R/RW with Lightscribe drive.

After I burn any type of CD or DVD, either in iTunes or using the default program that came with my computer, no CD or DVD will be recognized by my computer until I restart the computer.

If I go to My Computer after inserting a disc it will show an icon for "CD-Rom" (i put in a audio cd) and if I double click on it will prompt with "Insert a Disc" and eject my drive.

The fact that if I restart and it works is alright, but it's stupidly annoying if I'm trying to back-up my computer and I have to restart every time I want to burn another CD.

What can I try to do to fix this?

Hey Guys,

I am attempting to burn a set of recovery discs for my Gateway M-7351U laptop. The first DVD copy does fine, but when I insert another DVD to copy the second disc it will run for about two minutes and then ejects with the error 203 code which says it has failed to copy the second disc. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to correct the problem? Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello Mojowon, welgome to the forum.

If you are having problems making the Computer Manufacturer?s Vista Recovery Process/Media, you will have to contact your Computer Manufacturer.

It is their Recovery Process which they have set up, So they can better solve it. Contact your manufacturer support division.

I need to burn 2 DVD Folders each 1.96 GB on a 4.7 gb disc.

I have tried 2 modes as a trial on a DVD RW disc.
One using the 2 DVD Folders
and
next as iso image of each folder.

The burning was successful but they will not play on my stand alone player.

I used the ImgBurn and also the DeepBurner Pro.

I have a 4.7 gb disc burnt many years ago which has 2 dvd files/folders but I am unable to remember how I did that.

So if yu can share your experience please, I would be very grateful.

How can I do that?

A:Solved: Burning images to a DVD disc

The simplest way is to burn the jpg files as a regular data disc.

I can put a disc like that into my DVD player and the player will show you the files and folders similar to Windows Explorer. Then you select the files you want to see and the player has a built in slide show player. It's pretty basic, it will show them in sequential order or random.

If you want something fancier like a slide show with effects and music you'd have to use something like NeroVision to create one.

didn't know where to put this, but here goes...

I have 2 ISO files, both of them contain videos. I've made them into ISOs so i can burn them to a disc. I know they work separately because I've tried burning one to a disc. However, would it be possible to burn them BOTH to the disc, so one plays after the other? If so, how would I choose which one plays first? I use vista, I've got a DVD+RW and I use ImgBurn as my DVD burner.

Hello
My System Info:
OS - Win XP SP2
DVD Drive - Sony DVD RW DW-G120A burner (thats what it says on it device driver) purchased 2 yrs ago.
Software - Nero StartSmart 6.3
DVD Media - a local DVDminusR 4.7gb disc

I use the above resources to back up my data (mostly different multimedia files) & for burning purposes, everything was fine until i used a new pack of dvds. For some reason the entire process of burning goes smoothly and i can also see my data on the disc, i am able to use like first 2 or 3 files out of 6 or 7 & then the disc hangs up (i have to eject to make the system work again). I faced this problem with a couple of discs (all from the new pack) so chkd for them and found out that, i have been using DVDminusR for all my burning until now & these discs are actually DVDplusR. My burner is able to burn data all ok, also it can reconize both empty & burnt DVDplusr discs (with all files showing in the window) but plays only part of the disc.
Is there some way i can take my data from those discs as i lost the originals or can i play them with some utility or patch or something. If yes would it be ok continuing my backup with all my remaining duvplusr discs. In other words how can i use & play dvdplusr discs (burnt assuming dvdminusr) on my drive.
Please Advise...... I appriciate your help & thank u for it.

Prior to this i had no problems burning, i think i might have deleted something important when i was cleaning my computer.

I have tried to fix it by repairing itunes in the "add/remove program" control.

There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the actual DVD/CD drive, it seems to be installed fine.

How do i find out if i have deleted something important and how do i get it back?

Hi lucyjee! Please note that while working on a HJT log with a member of our HJT team, it is strongly advised to NOT make any changes to your system, as this will complicate things for our HJT team members making it more difficult to help you rid your computer of malware. It is also unadvised that you make any changes to your system (installing/removing anything) unless told to by the person(s) working your HJT log.

Everytime try to burn an ISO file to a blank CD, I always set it to verify before finishing the disc image burning process and I always get the warning that the disc image didn't burn successfully and it has Error Code: 0x80004005.



I've tried burning disc image on a number of blank CD's but to my dismay, they all get wasted upon getting this error. This doesn't usually come before, unless the discs I used were of poor quality. I've tried different discs with different brands, different ISOs and just now a re-writable CD to no avail. I've been using the built in ISO disc image burner on Windows 7 and I also tried ImgBurn but they both report some sort of error on the disc verification process before the completion of the disc burning. I don't know how this is supposed to be. I was gonna burn some Linux ISOs but they just won't burn well.

A:ISO disc image burning always displaying Error Code: 0x80004005

There are 3 points of failure: The burning program, the disks, the burner.

You test to see if you get the same error using a different burning program (check).
You test to see if you get the same error using different media (check).
You test by using a different optical drive.

Optical drives are cheap (both meanings) and the heads can be knocked out of alignment too easily. Once that happens there is little to no chance of repairing it. It is just easier to get a new drive.

EDIT: be sure to try cleaning the drive. Use compressed air or vacuum to try and get any dust or hair out of the compartment (carefully). NEVER try to clean the lenses by touching them.

I'm in the process of digitizing the music I have on cassettes - yes, that means I am old which is probably why I'm having a tough time of this - and eventually adding them to iTunes and transferring them to discs.

Where I'm getting confused is during the burning process. I happen to have a very short stack of blank Memorex "Music" CD-R's, but know that I will need more. While I was in WallyWorld (Walmart) the other day I checked to see what they had in stock. Which was nothing. I asked the electronics guy if they would be getting more blank music cd-r's anytime soon. He looked at me like I had 3 heads and then proceeded to tell me that I can burn music to "any" cd/cd-r/cd-rw. So I tried this; using iTunes (and a "normal" Maxell 700MB CD-RW), burning in both .cda and mp3 formats. Neither will play in my car (2003 Pontiac Grand Am with factory stereo). My car stereo will however; p... Read more

A:Solved: what disc to use for burning music (that will play in my car)

What you did wrong was you used a CD-RW instead of a CD-R. While most computer optical drives can read CD-RW's regular CD players, especially older ones, can have problems reading them.

So just stick to burning CD-R's or "Music" CD-R's, either one should work.

Hello.I have been trying come up with a solution for this issue for awhile and am at my wits end.After upgrading my PC:http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03685096...to Windows 10 a few months ago, my PC will randomly not boot (more often than not) and I will receive the following error message upon booting:Error: No boot disc has been detected or the disc has failed.I then have to manually shut down the PC.When I select F10 upon booting and enter through the bios and simply select "ignore changes and exit" the PC will then load normally.It happens seemingly at random. Sometimes I can restart the PC a couple times in a row without issues. Typically I have to go through the bios though and I avoid powering down the PC at all if I can.I have done numerous tests on the hard disks and they have all passed. I have checked the connections from the HD to the motherboard and there are no issues there. I flashed the bios to the newest version as well. I tried downgrading as well as refreshing Windows to no avail.Help?Thank you in advance.

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire One 10" netbook. It has no cd or dvd internal drive. It has been asking me to burn factory default system to disc. I have no external cd or dvd drives. Can this be burned to an external harddrive. I have a simpledrive. Or can this be burned to a 8GB memory stick?
 

A:Solved: burning factory default system to disc

I would not be using a flash type drive for system recovery.

You might be able to make the image file on an external hard drive however how are you going to do the recovery???

In short, you need an optical drive. No recovery is worth anything until you are sure you can recover your system. I always advise people to do the actual recovery to make sure it will work when needed.

Dear Friends:

Maybe someone can advise me on this. I know that in the past, when you bought a new computer, a back up disc to reload windows was included, but that no longer happens. When I bought a new computer myself, I was given instructions on how to actually make my own back up discs with my computer. Apparently each new computer has the capacity built in to burn one back up disc. Now I would like to do that for my children’s computers, but do not know how. Is there anyone who could help with some instructions? Thanks for your consideration. By the way, they both have Compacs

Thankful

I've been trying to burn a folder containing 4.5 GB of Data to a 4.7 GB DVD +R Disc. However I keep getting the message ' Incorrect Disc pls. insert a DVD R DL Disc ... or there is insufficient space on the disc.'

The status bar that shows the volume of data to be copied, is blue ... ie it does not go to the red part, indicating excessive capacity.

I have also tried using WinRAR to make a compressed folder ... though the size of this was reduced to 4.3 Gig, I still get the same error message.

The data is all in one folder, there is no multi level directory that the pc can't handle, nor is it dual layer.

Googling the error message actually brought up a link to Ashampoo's FAQs ... though the only reference on the page to 'insufficient disc space' referred to the Hard Disk, which is not the problem in this instance

Anyone have suggestions how I can get this done ?

Thanks for any assistance.

A:Boot Disc, Recovery Disc, Frisbee Disc

1) what is the difference between a boot disc and a recovery disc?Boot disk vs recovery disk. Let me see if I can phrase that in a way that makes some sense.A recovery disc is a generic term for the disk or media containing a backup of the original factory condition or a specified condition of a computer as configured by the original equipment manufacturer or an end-user. OEM supplied recovery media is sometimes shipped with some computers to allow the user to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the operating system and pre-loaded software as it was when it was shipped. This is not as common a practice today as it was in the past. I won't confuse the issue, but google recovery partition for more information.A boot disk is a removable data storage medium, i.e. DVD or flash drive from which a computer can load and run 'boot' an operating system or utility program. The computer must have an installed program or application which will load and execute a program or application from the boot disk. This will enable you to boot an otherwise unusable machine to be able to troubleshoot the OS or non-working application as necessary.Hope that gives you a better idea of the difference.As to how to create a boot disk? I will let more knowledgeable staff or members assist you.

On a 4-year old laptop running Windows 7, I've been burning, in Windows Explorer, Verbatim brand DVD-DL discs rated at 8x, on an external USB Panasonic UJ-220 blu-ray burner that can burn DVD-DL at 2.4x, at 2.4x (the only burn speed choice that Windows Explorer offers), with no problem.

Now I'm trying to do the same, with the same external USB burner and with discs from the same cake, on a 1-year old desktop, also running Windows 7. Both the laptop and the desktop are running 64-bit Windows 7.

On the desktop, I get this error:

=========================================
There was a problem burning this disc

The write speed for the recordable disc is either too fast or too slow for your CD or DVD burner. Insert a recordable disc that has a different write speed, adn then try again.
=========================================

Then it offers choices to try with a different disc, save the temp files for later, etc.

I've tried with 3 discs, and got the same error with all of them.

The UJ-220 has two USB plugs; one for data & power, and one for just additional power. I thought maybe the burner wasn't getting enough power from the cable that's just for power. So I plugged that cable into the laptop, leaving the data cable in the desktop. Same problem.


Burning a disc rated at 8x at 2.4x, in a burner rated at 2.4x, should be no problem, but even if it was, why does it work fine with the laptop?

A:Error burning DVD with Windows Explorer: "disc to fast or too slow"

Hi GregL,

Normally I would say that is because of media incompatibility with the burner (some brands just don't get on with each other), but reading through your post this can't be the problem as you're using the same discs and burner on both machines. The only thing I can think of at the moment is that the drive is being picked up by your laptop as USB 2.0 but only USB 1.1 by your desktop.

You will have to divide 25Gigs up into 4.7Gig Parts to fit on a DVD and burn each disk separately. There is no multi-disk burning tool that I know of that is in existence.

You could then take each 4.7Gig part and compress it to possibly get 2 zipped files onto a DVD.
