    I have been trying to burn a collection of photos to a dvd+rw as a data disc. Both Nero or Recordnow are not working for me. they all stop and says "Could not perform start of Disc-at-once"

    I have a hp dv1000. My CD/DVD Drive is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K14. How do i know if i have the right discs? How do i know to use DVD-R/DVD-RW or DVD+R/DVD+RW???

    DVR-K14 writes to DVD-/+R media at 8x, DVD-/+RW at 4x, DVD+DL at 2.4x, and CD-R/W at 24x

    Which part of Nero are you trying to use?
    You have to make it a data disk, when burning pictures (just in case you didn't know).
    In my older version of Nero, there was a section labeled "Pictures", which I thought I was supposed to use. But it never worked right. So I tried the "Data" section, and they came out great.
    Good luck!

    I don't know that it will work any better than Nero. Nero works just fine for me. Besides, Nero and Easy CD Creator, do not play well together. They don't like being on the same computer, at the same time. It will create problems.

    It may be a problem with your burner, more than with the software.
    This has worked for a couple other folks. See if it helps you.

    In your device manager, right click on your burner, and click "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install a new driver for you.
    Good luck! Let us know how it goes............... :)
