  • DVD writer stops burning


    I am having strange issue with my computer.

    I am using EMPREX dual layer dvd writer.
    I use Nero 6.0 to burn CDs and DVDs. The issue is that it burns CD's fine but when i put DVD's to burn after 30% to 40% burning it stops and does not do anything.

    No light blink on DVD writer.
    No error message in Nero. I have tried to keep it in that position for an hour but no help.

    The only way to get rid of this problem is manually stopping the DVD burning process in nero.

    I haven't got clue what is happening.

    My operating system windows XP professional sp-3 and i have 2 gb of memory.
    No other DVD or CD drive is on my system this is the only one i have.

    Anyone's help would be highly appreciated.

    Try using a different program like CDBurnerXP or DeepBurner. If they work, then Nero is the problem. If they don't then look for firmware and driver updates for the DVD writer.

        Also try a different DVD media. You may have a cheap brand or indeed a brand that has problems with your burner.

              Have you tried slowing the speed of the burning down?
