Ok now that we have that out of the way, maybe it is the way you are trying to burn the DVD, depending on what nero you are using you will do it diffrently, I assume you are using nero 6???

Start "nero 6 startsmart" at the top you will see a drop down box where it might say "CD" or "DVD" make sure it says "DVD" and try again to copy your data to disc. If that does not work post back for next solution.

Ok, before getting a new disk, try a diffrent cd/dvd copier program:

I had this before but it was LG drive. what I did to get it run was to reset the drive region. It sure doesn't make any sence but it works for me ever since. To do that you can find the option in some player like Power DVD or you can go in to drive property and do it. You can only change region 5 times in total but you shouldn't have to worry, I've never use this option two time on one drive myself.
