burning help

by vhummel / January 17, 2005 6:48 AM PST

I am using Win XP Home, NERO dvd burning software and my burner is _NEC DVD_RW ND-1300A.
Everything has worked fine in burning my movies for months. Now suddenly when I try to burn, I get the msg "illlegal disc" "could not perform start of
disc-at-once" I am using Ritek brand of discs and they have worked fine for me for a long time. The support group at Nero has been no help. I am desperate so if someone could pls make a suggestion!!
thanks in advance

same drive, Ritek DVD-R 4x blanks (same pack i'd used last summer to burn 40 discs without a single coaster), and Nero. i get errors using Roxio 6 Classic too, so i don't think i can blame the apps, although i still can't eliminate XP as the cause (may be the first time i've tried burning DVDs since i installed SP2...) but maybe i'm clutching at straws.

at this point, i'm about ready to drop $40-$50 for a 16x drive
