    ok here is my problem

    5 brand new dvd/cd burners in less than a year, total cd/dvd burned less than 30.

    symptoms burner will work great the 1st few times then it will not burn, sometimes it will recognize dvds but not burn to them other times it will not recognize dvds at all only cd's ;currently it will recognize cd's/dvd's but will not burn either

    i own a pioneer dvd-rw dvr-110 d less than 3 mnths old

    i am using nero express 6 regardless of he file i try to burn it will run through the process and tell me it has burned succesfully but it also showes that it has not accessed my cd burner (idle) so nothing burnes (it does this even if i dont have a cd in the drive)

    real player 10 just keeps asking me to insert a cd even thought i have one in the burner

    i have uninstalled the burner manually unplugged it and i have uninstalled nero and then did a fresh install

    this is happening too often to be a fluke (is it a virus? is it a currupt file)

    sorry for the long post but any help (program scans/downloads) would be much appreciated thanks in advance:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Burners are big users of page file memory and often leave little piles of temp files behind. I have cleared up cd problems by the following housekeeping but your mileage may vary.

    Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Action>Properties>Advanced>Virtual Memory>Change
    Select the operating system drive and make sure the memory is system managed.

    Secondly, use a cleaner program like Easy Cleaner to remove any temporary files that may have been created in the past by cd programs. I actually just delete all of the temp files on a regular basis.
