:tazz: I recently bought a NEC DVD Burner model 3550A, which has a DVD-R recording speed of 16x. Using Nero Burning Rom, I tried to make a data DVD. It went through without any problems and told me that it successfully burned. However, when I opened the DVD in the drive with windows explorer, it came up as empty. I've tried with this with Nero and Deepburner, both with the same problems. I also tried reading it with the actual DVD Burner and a DVD-ROM drive that I have; both think the DVD is empty. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

Just before you click burn, click record settings, tick determine write speed

If it helps then you will need to do this each time you burn

Thanks for the extremely fast response. I'll try it out now.

EDIT: Yes! It worked! Thanks a lot. You're a life saver!

Well, yeah. You helped me out. The least I could do is tell you that your advice worked. Thanks again. Only wish I had checked the discs after I burned them instead of burning like 8 and then noticing they were empty, thus rendering them useless...
