Hi im trying to make my own pc utilities disk so i have all my favourite sofware on one DVD.

I am using NERO 6 to burn the DVD and i am using NEROs option of multisession (this is meant to allow me to add other software to the DVDV in the future)

However when i burn the software onto the DVD, then the next day try and add some more software, i get the warnign message that adding any more fiels to the disk will over rtie the files already on it.

I dont want to use INcd either to format my disk as i have been told INcd isnty very stable.

Thanks for the help.

Hey there doire, do you have two dvd writers and the dvd you are using is RW or striaght R???

Also in my oppinion, I would NOT recommend making a DVD multi-session. A normal CD is ok to make multi-session.

Cool :whistling:

No i have one DVD re-writer and the disk is DVD+RW.

Why would i need two DVD re-writers?

So using a cdr would be better then in multi-seesion?

Is there any way of adding data to a DVD+RW???

No, you do not need two DVD writers, it is just that I know that having two writers can conflict.

Yes, using a normal Cd would be better.

And yes again, adding data to a DVD+RW is no problem, but I dont think they where ment to be multi-session.

But if you would like to continue with DVD+RW then I will carry on assisting you. DVD RW are ment to be writen once and then formatted to be written again.

Well the multi-session should have worked, but since it never then maybe you should try using InCd, this is just to test it. I have used InCd for many years and it hasnt given me any trouble. Maybe your friend who had problems with it was unlucky.

Yes, "Erase disk" is the one we are looking for.

Erasing the disk in Nero seems to have done the trick. I cna now drag and drop files onto the DVD+RW with ease.

Thanks for your help. :whistling:

No, problem thank you for letting me know that it worked. But if in future it stops working, try giving InCd a try.
