I have to be the most unfortunate person when it comes to DVD burning. Im using Nero Express 6 and a LiteOn Burner. I tried twice and I got an illegal disc error, as you can see towards the end of the ff. report : Earlier today, I used a DVD +R disc and was successful. Any ideas??? :confused:

I would never have thought that brand mattered. I used 2 DVD-R HewlettPackard discs and both burns failed. Most of my data/movies are recorded on Maxell DVD +RW (from Walmart). I made duplicate copies on Memorex DVD +R and one disc already failed (subject of a recent thread).

I'd appreciate if you could tell me where to purchase the better blanks, so I can reburn. Many thanks.

Oh and btw, is it advisable to burn at a slower speed? Thanks again.

If the Maxell's are working for you, stay with those. Yes, burning at a slower speed can also help.

Another question ... when do discs start to fail, if ever? The Maxell +RW were burned between 3 and 4 weeks ago. The Memorex +R about 2 weeks ago, and like I mentioned earlier, one had already failed

And how do I edit the original thread?.

I had the same problem you're having and I also have the same SOHW-1693S Lite-On burner as you. My problem cleared up when I updated the firmware from KS06 to KS0B. You have KS04 so you should probably update also if everything else you try fails.

The first thing I would is try different media, second update your Nero software and if you're still having problems then update the firmware, which you can get here: http://us.liteonit.com/us/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=153

DONE! Many thanks for the links !!!

Regarding Nero, does data verification at the end of the burn ensure a perfect burn? If it detects an error does it correct it?

No, the data verification doesn't ensure a perfect burn or correct errors, it's used when you burn data files and it checks the files on your hard drive to make sure they match what was burned to disc. It just kind of double checks a good burn.

So anyway, are you burning successfully now?

Stantley,

YES !!!

Well the burns are almost always successful, with the exception of random millisecond pixelation when I play them. But having the Verbatims gives me peace of mind that my recordings will be around longer.

And thanks for getting back pronto. Im going to uncheck the data verif. box so I save time.

I was going to return what I thought was a bad batch of CMC Mag aka HP -R discs when I decided to give it another go. Perhaps the new software and firmware did the trick! A successful burn after 2 failed ones!

You've been a great help. Thanks!

BTW, +R discs need finalizing on DVD recorders. Nero doesnt do or show that but they still play on any compatible player. Is finalizing a hidden process in Nero? and What do you know of Samsung Upconvert DVD players?

I've never encountered that multisession prompt. I just go straight to the copy DVD function. I tried burning at 8x which seemed just as fast if not faster than 16x. Can this be right?
