Cd writing problem

Q: Cd writing problem

Hi

I have got a Benq Cd writer(20*10*40). My problem is I am unable to write data Cd's (data from harddisk) of more than 650MB capacity even though the Cd's I use are of 700MB. If I do write the Cd gets damaged. For CD to CD writing I am able to write.

I use Nero 5.5.3 original version ( I have even checked its settings but there was no use) & windows Xp writing software. This problem also had started recently and also only for data CD's and not for audio CD's.

I have got a Pentim 4 system with Windows Xp. 40 GB hard disk and 256MB RAM.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Cd writing problem

You may need a firmware upgrade for your CD drive, and I'd cruise over to Nero's website and download the update to the current version of Nero, it should be free.

Hi

I run a Pentium 4 with XP Professional. It came with Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.2 installed but I've never got around to using Roxio. I can play music CDs OK via Windows Media Player.

Realised I should be backing up my HD and tried to backup onto a CD-R with no joy so tried a CD-RW - no joy. Went and bought new CD-RWs in case the disks were at fault but still no joy.

Eventually found out that the Roxio version that I have can't be used on XP Professional so downloaded Nero 7 Demo. Still getting same messages.

When I try to copy I get a couple of different messages:
"Buffer underrun protection activated" and shows Type of disk in recorder: Empty
"Waiting for disc - Please insert disk to write to"

And previously got "Unrecognised data" and "insufficient space left" but it's a blank disk.

I've tried using Nero to do a quick erase but the Erase option isn't highlighted so can't.

I'm obviously missing something really basic ... anyone any ideas? I've attached aerror log in case this is of help.

Also, do I have to format all new disks before using and, if so, anyone know how to format using Nero 7 demo?

Many thanks.

A:Problem Writing To Cd-r Or Cd-rw

Hi Denise. Roxio and Nero don't like to cohabitate (I found out the hard way). Uninstall both of them for the time being.Download and run XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip and unzip the contents. Run the EXE file. Reinstall Nero. If this doesn't work you could try using an inexpensive optical drive cleaning disk available at large retailers and computer shops.---------------------------There are 2 ways to store data on a RW disk. The first way is to burn to it like it is a CD-R and then erase the whole disc to reuse it. The other way is to use Nero's InCD driver to format the CD-RW. This will allow you to treat the disc as a 500MB removeable disc in which you can add and remove files and folders in Explorer as if it was a gigantic floppy. Only computers running InCD will be able to write to the disc.

I searched here and there a lot and still wondering is it a problem with sp3 or the dvd rw driver which mine is SONY DVD RW DRU 830A or it is a problem pertaining to the softwares that I use kike NERO, DVD Shrink. At present none of the copying and burning softwares cannot write in dvd driver.

A:XP SP3 and writing problem in DVD RW

It is XP SP3 that is causing your problem. I have a Sony DRU 710A that stopped working after I installed XP SP3. It would not recognize any blank DVD media with Roxio or Nero. I pulled the drive out and put it in another machine that only had XP SP1 installed. The drive worked great. I then installed SP3 and the drive quit working again. I then uninstalled SP3 and the drive started working again. Microsoft needs to fix this problem. I hope someone can put enough pressure on them to fix this issue.

Hi - have you AHCI enabled in the bios? If so it could be the driver Microsoft installs automatically during install - to fix this go to the below site and download and install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver if you haven't already installed it.
I think its updated with the chipset drivers now, so you could update them firstly, and see if that fixes the problem if not install the rapid storage driver - available on the same support page below.

I'm looking for help with a problem getting my DVD writer to recognise blank DVDs.

I can read and write CDs no problem and the drive will read already written DVDs(films,software etc). However when I insert a blank DVD the drive just keeps trying to access(green light on drive keeps flashing and drive is spinning) the DVD.

I am using DVD+R discs and have never had a problem in the past.

The drive is an Emprex 16X dual layer reader/writer. I have run the driver update and apparently the drivers are the most recent.

It may something simple or the drive might be just broken, but any help, advice or info would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You might want to try installing any updated drivers from the HP website.

That is a direct link for drivers for your FN keys. Try it and let me know how it works.

How long has the problem been occurring? If it just started happening, you may try to do a system restore. Make sure all of your personal files are backed up just in case of an error.

Hi,

I have a Blue-Ray Drive on my HP-G70 120. I am running on WIndows 7. Recently, my blue-ray drive has been disturbing a lot. I wrote to CDs and DVDs before, and it worked fine. Also, I can read from the discs, so I dont think there is a problem with the laser, rather I suspect some problem with the software.

My Problems are:
Clicking on the drive icon says its a blank disc, though the disc is not.
While at other times, ejecting the drive from windows or from the button says "An error occurred while ejecting BD-ROM". At other times it ejects fine.
I burned some files onto a CD that already had 80MB written on it, using BurnAware. Now, after burning, only the previous (80MB) are present there, but no sign of the newest write. Also, it shows "0 bytes free of 80MB" when clicking properties on the drive icon in Windows Explorer.


So How do I fix these problems?


Thank You

I believe I have a virus on my PC. There were 100's up popups all over my screen. The day prior I had removed Norton Internet Security, installed Zone Alarm.. and had intended to return the following day and install Avast. but.. unfortunately I didn't get to before this happened.

I'm able to boot up in safe mode and tried a system restore to the prior day (to the problem) but upon rebooting my screen went black after the windows loading screen. Now, I guess system restore doesn't solve problems like this, but in the past it'd fixed anything I'd done before.

Rebooted again into safe mode and all my files are there. Is there a way to copy files in safe mode to dvd or cd? or fix the problem?

If I have to reinstall the OS, I must retrieve some pictures that hadn't been backed up.

A:Weird CD writing problem

Good Afternoon miltus_31, as you are aware the burn laser deteriorates with useage.
Your description is kind of inline with "old age".
Rather than get too involved with troubleshooting and changing things, if the machine has burned more than a couple of spindles of blanks successfully over a period it may be more productive to try a new burner.
There is nothing worse than having an important burn that wont!

Hello,

I have a problem with MS CD Writing Wizard with Windows XP, SP2.

When I try to burn a CD with the option "Automatically eject the CD after
writing" the wizard burns the CD and ejects it. Then, when I try to add
some new files to the CD and burn it again, the wizard doesn't recognizes
the disc (after inserting). Then I need to login again to make the wizard
see my CD and burn the files.

When I turn off that option - everything is all right - even if I manually
pull out the CD and put it again, the wizard recognizes the CD and
burns the files properly.

What can cause this problem ?

Regards,
Marcin

Thanks in advance for help someone might offer!

I have a hunch my secondary drive is dying (been with me through 2 systems/5+ years) and would like to move all the data from it to a CD. Using Easy CD Creator it tells me something about the data being written too fast so it could not be written to the CD.

Any idea that I have a CD/RW problem or something else? I replaced the power supply last night hoping the terrible loud noise would go away (didn't - must be the hard drive), and will try the CD write again this afternoon. But I thought someone might have another idea for me in case this doesn't work.

Happy Saturday!
 

A:CD/RW problem - writing too fast?

the horrible loud noise is likely a fan clogged with dust and chattering, though it could be the HDD and if it is, you should attend to it before you lose everything.

As for the CDRW, try burning at slower speeds, also check the cables, disconnect them and reconnect them to make certain they have proper connection. Might also be a buffering problem, or it could be a problem with the burning app.

Hi folks

I have a horrible problem which is doing my tit in.

I just brought a pioneer dvr109. In the Uk this drive has received good reviews so i decided to buy it. I brought an oem version of dabs.com.

Now when i received this it had a fireware already on which was version 1.19 and i looked on pioneers website and there was another firmware update which was 1.40 which was only released in march. so i updated and it hasnt seemed to have sorted problem out.

The DVD rewriting side seems to be fine.

but for cd-rs i am having problems.

I use TDK cdr80 disks which can burn up to 52X. now i know my drive will only burn up to 40X which is fine, but when i used nero, which is version. 6.0.0.20. I can only burn at 4X.

does anyone know why this is.

I thought problems like these sorted them selves out with firmware, but i dont think it has.

I have tried the same brand but with numerious disks and have had no luck. b4 i did the update i was also using infiniti cdr-80 disks on a spindle. and these would burn up to 32X. but since the update these will only burn at 4X.

can anyone help, is there any issue with this drive, is it my nero version?

any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You can get that error message if you have bad media (defective CDs or DVD's)

To get out of the optical drive freeze just restart Windows. Eject the disk when the computer begins to restart.

Then try the burn with another disk. Keep in mind that if you bought a pack of cheap disks there could be many that are no good.

This is a long story...

I had a new Teac CDW and an old HP CDW on my machine.
Both were working perfect with Nero 5.5.
Until I realize that my new Teac W552E had a manufacturing defect. So I removed it and sent it back to the service center.

Now I'm left with the old one. At first the computer said ATAPI uncampatible at every reboot. I connected to the secondary master cable, in place of the new Teac drive, then I changed the BIOS to set secondary master (the HP drive) to Auto and Non-installed to secondary master where the old HP was previousely.
Now, I don't have this Atapi warning.

My HP drive is detected and is able to read CD-R(W) from any application, including WExplorer and Nero.

When I started to burn to CDR-W, Nero shows "HP drive time out" (or something like that), then Nero freeze.
It doesn't seem to write anymore...

I don't think it's a problem of software since it's exactely the same system/config/installation as 2 weeks ago when I removed the new Teac drive.

I'd rather think that it can be a BIOS or a cable connection problem or that the HP drive is dead...

Any suggestion?

I have an OPTORITE 48x16x48 CD-RW drive, CW4802, running Win ME. It seems to write to CD-Rs and CD-RWs that are the regular density 650MB, 74 minute types. However, it balks a lot and gives me a generic error telling me the media is damaged or has scratches or the software is bad, etc. whenever I use 700MB CD-RWs.

I updated the firmware to the latest version, but it wasn't far behind anyway.

I am using new (never written to) Memorex disks. Any tips or fixes on how to overcome this problem would be appreciated.
 

A:Problem writing to 700Mb CD-RW

This may not pertain to your problem but have you tried lowering the write speed down a bit? I find that some CD's within the memorex line and TDK line even thought they say 48x compatable or Multi Speed they balk at 700's. Another thought would be to hold your storage down to 650 to 675MB vs all of the 700.

Just some thoughts.

Hello everyone. Just registered in this forum today and expecting to have a reply to my problem. I have Toshiba Qosmio E15-AV101, whose detailed specifications are mentioned here. For one year, I am being successfully writing to DVD+R disc without any sort of problem using Nero. However, I had a HDD crash recently and had to redo everything. Now the strange problem I have facing is that I can write to DVD-R, but cannot write to DVD+R or CD-R.

Using Nero as my burner, this is the error report I get while trying to burn my files to DVD+R :

I have a dell 4600 running windows XP with a NEC DVD+RW ND-3100AD drive. Its very old, but it works ok. I also have two Toshiba AVI playing DVD players.

For years I have been able to write files to DVD and then watch them on my Toshiba DVD player, but in the last couple of weeks I have a problem which frankly has left me baffled.

I can write files to DVD, they write perfectly and when I look at the disc in my computer all the files are there with the names I gave them and they play fine. When I put the DVD in either of my AVI DVD players the player doesnít see the files. Sometimes if I put them back in the computer and change the title of the file they will appear on the DVD player, a lot of the time this doesnít work. Sometimes if I change the name of a file on the computer the computer sees the changed file name, but the DVD player sees the old file name.

Itís annoying because it doesnít happen all the time, last night I wrote two discs Ė one which was half full and I wrote about 2GB worth of files to it and they showed up fine on the DVD player and a second disc, also half full, where I wrote one 350mb file and the DVD player canít see the new file.

This happens with two different writing programs, on different discs both new and old and on two separate DVD players so I can only assume something is wrong with my DVD writer. Iíve checked the drivers are up to date, but I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me figure out what is wrong.

Thanks in advance... Read more

After burning a disc, you shouldn't be able to change anything, presuming you finalized the disc. If a disc isn't finalized, then most players will not be able to play them. Not sure what program you are using, but look for a finalize (or close) after burn option.

Besides that, you could simply have a bad batch of discs, or it's possible that your dvd drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

All of a suddly I can't burn CDs or write any files to them (Pictures, etc.) No known changes although Music Match is fairly new on my computer. But I burned discs from it before.
When trying to burn a CD from Music Match it gives me "There was an underrun error...."
When trying to burn a music CD from Windows Media Player it stops at the first track, says "Completed" but gives an error report that "an invalid alignment was specified."
I researched the underrun thing and have defragmented as recommended....still no luck.
When I try to put pictures on a CD it says that the disk is full or invalid or something.

Hi guys!

Recently I brought a Dell Inspiron 1520 notebook. The problem that I am facing is that whenever I try to make a copy of a DVD, may that contain videos or data, it takes a hell lot of time.

When I selected DVD Copy in Nero 7, it took about 90 minutes to make an image and then copy the same to another DVD.

In PowerISO, it took about 55 Minutes just to make an image of a 4 GB DVD.

I am unable to figure out why is this taking such a hell lot of time. Is there some kind of a setting that can help me or is it a hardware problem.

Please help.

Thank you.

Hi! I'm having trouble writing a cd in a format that I can use in my car or other cd player to listen to. I downloaded some audio files from the internet and wrote them to CD-but the cd player rejects it (spits it out). The media I used was CD-RW and CD-R but neither one would work with the CDA format. So I converted the format from CDA to mp3, and that does seem to work, but each song has a really long pause before it begins. Does anyone know the preferred format for audio cd's and what software would best convert it. I use Rio's Audio Manager, but that seems limited in options for file types. Thanks for any direction you can give me.
 

A:Format Problem writing audio CD

I prefer to burn WAV files to CD. They work in my car and other CD players so I've always done it that way.

I use Winamp to make the WAV files from MP3's (diskwriter plug-in)
I use NERO to burn the CD's
To get rid of the pauses in NERO, I double click the track on the left side and a proerties window comes up and lets you select the millisecond delay between tracks. You can change them all to 0 except for track one.

It happens in most Windows applications on my PC: I am typing a text in some text application, like NotePad, Word, or whatever, and thing everything's fine, but when I then go through the text I see that in the middle of a sentence the cursor must have jumped - without me doing anything - to a position before the text end, and continued to add the new text i am writing on that location, instead on the end of the text. And even worse: that happens multiple times! Correction takes so much time.

What's causing that? And how to solve it?
