Why Not Use Something Else...?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / April 23, 2013 8:07 AM PDT

First, be sure to check the Samsung website, or possibly Cyberlink, and see if they have an update for the Power2Go program version you have installed.. Sometimes, there are "fixes" release that take care of your problem.

On the other hand, many of us use a different burning program which works fine for general burning of DVD's and CD's.. See the two below which work fine here. (IMGBurn works great for me.):

Hope this helps.

I had someone saying that and after it was looked at the discs were fine. The problem was with the car player.

What Type Of Disks? DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, CD-R?

It might help if we knew what type of "burn" you're trying to do.. Is this a data disc to a DVD or CD? A movie to a DVD? Or a music CD? Are you trying to close "formatted" discs? (packet writing programs such as InCD, etc.) If that's the case, then formatted discs won't close at all.. The formatting prevents closing and is designed for copy and paste/drag and drop type of uses..

IOn the other hand, if you're creating standard data discs, in a traditional data disc burn, and you've tried multiple burning software brands, and the "Closing" option is still not there, then you've got a disk type which is not compatible with the burner, or the burner itself is wonky.. So, first, we try a different brand of disc.. If that doesn't fix it, then the burner may be faulty.

Hope this helps.
