DVD Disk Write Error

Hi,
I have been able to burn DVDs for a long time but suddenly started getting disk write errors. I thought it may have been conflicting software, so I got a new 1TB hard disk, fresh install of WinXP Pro, and Nero. Now with a fresh setup, I'm still getting write errors. I have two DVD burners, both giving errors. They will burn a CD, but not a DVD. I'm using the same disks as I always have. Along with the new hard disk, I updated the BIOS and firmware.

Then I tried NTI DVD Maker and got a disk write error with that too.

I don't know what else to troubleshoot. Any ideas? Thank you!


This is my Nero error log:

First what are the VOB and VTS files your are trying to burn?
Second how old are these two drives?
Were they bought at the same time?

Different DVD files. I tried backing up a DVD and also burning home videos.
One burner is approx 4 yrs old, the other about 8. But they were both working fine until about 3 months ago...

Sounds like the drives both are failing. Oddly enough it is happening at the exact same time.
You can try blowing them out with a can of compressed air and then retrying but I'm afraid being that old they have been worn out. :)

Even though they will burn a CD? I admit I don't know much about them but it seems like if they are failing that they wouldn't be able to write at all...

I lost Benq DW-1640 in a similar way. It would read OK, burn DVD5 and CD/CD-RW's, but not DVD9. Finally it stopped burning DVD5 as well, then it lost ability to verify CD-RW...
I had to buy Pioneer and it has been working flawlessly since.
An optional step is to check the cables and replace them. But I doubt it will help.

I just helped on a build where a brand new dvd\cdrw burner would read but not burn.
It doesn't matter if the drive is brand new or as in your case 4 plus years old. The drive is a piece of machinery and as we all know mechanics have their own mind at times.
