View Full Version : Nero Won't Accept DVD -R Suddenly

07-04-2009, 10:48 AM
I've been burning dvd's with nero 7 for yonks, dvd movie and dvd data disks. I use -R dvd's. My burner is supposed to be able to handle virtually anything, including DL.

Nero Info itself reports the burner as able to handle anything.

But when I try to burn a dvd data disk it tells me it wants a dvd r and won't accept a dvd -r.

Is this something I can control in Nero somewhere?

Or is it a breakdown in Nero somewhere?

Or would it be a problem with my burner?

It was all working fine as recently as the day before yesterday.

suddenly I realise I should do some testing, try to burn with some other prog. I will. Meanwhile I'll leave this posting lest the problem really is some switch in Nero.

try a lense cleaner on the drive, they do get dirty sometimes. Also occasionally a blank disk and a particular drive just don't get along, I take it you've tried more than one ?

I don't remeber any settings in nero to limit what disks it will use.

Are you sure it is a DVD+/- RW drive?
