2 things.

In Nero, double check that you don't have the "TEST" writing checkbox checked.

Then swap the drive out, uninstall Nero, install what came with the new drive and see if that fixes it.

Another thing to be considered, do you buy your disks as a pack say 10, 25, 50 or 100? If so, you could be looking at a faulty disk, try one from somwhere else in the stack, if that fails, get on to the people you purchased it from and explain the problem, I had exactly that problem a couple of years ago. It wasn't my burner, and it wasn't Nero, it was a batch of faulty disks. The company exchanged them and now alls well.

This is a known issue with XP and Nero 6
by chuckieu / August 21, 2005 5:56 AM PDT

The latest Nero Update- these issues.
I was able to fix the problem earlier using multiple patches, etc. After wiping the disc, fresh-installing XP
Home, I installed the Nero OEM (6.3.17), then only the
latest update. Now this is the Nero I have been using for years. No problems with DVDShrink either. chuck
P.S.> I installed only the burning rom and vision express, both on the OEM and Update, none of the other garbage.

CD Brand problem
by ramusson / August 22, 2005 1:37 AM PDT

I agree with Themisive. My DVD burner does not work with a particular brand of CD's. Same observation as in the first post.

Try a different brand.

Maybe, probably not

In reply to: CD Brand problem

I see that opinion on the web that using any brand of disc except Verbatim will cause a bad burn. In most cases this is not true. I used the same brands for years with absolutely no bad discs. Then went through stacks of coasters after loading XP. That is the only thing that changed. Went through all the steps at problem fixes from every source, including checking Verbatim. Finally got everything ironed out using various patches. Finally went back to square one and reinstalled everything including the major update from Nero. I.E: NERO was aware of the issues, was aware they were the result of XP compatibility, and fixed them. Now my burner works as it should, including using disc brands not labeled Verbatim. Nothing against it, but it is not the only decent brand made, and not using it is NOT the reason Nero wasn't working well in XP. chuck

burner returns blanks
by cnetho / August 22, 2005 1:25 PM PDT

check to make sure first the burners ribbons and power cables are tight. make sure your burner is named in the burner window and not the virtual burner. if these are boith ok go to and find new drivers for your burner. goodluck!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
