CD Writers

Hey guys. Sorry for this being so off topic, but I was hoping someone might be able to help me out.

I recently installed a new CD Writer.
Its a Sony, and I am using nero burner software.

The unit works because I have installed software from it etc.
If I run speed tests on it through nero burner they work fine as well.

The Problem.
Ok, I select the stuff I want to burn to the cd, and click burn.
The software behaves like it's burning the CD etc. but the burner does not even make a noise, and at the end, the cd is not burnt, even though the software says it was successful.

It's annoying me now.

Anyone got any ideas?

Re: burner probs

Sounds like you might be buring ISO's...(CD Images) Sure your going through the wizard properly? Otherwise, as above... could be a driver issue...

you may just be burning in simulation mode.
i have nero and there is 2 modes in which to burn a cd.
If both are selected then the burner does a simulation or test burn to see if it can be burnt properly and to preset the buffer or some shit then a real burn where it writes to the cd.
turn the wizard off and check ur settings, go through all the burn methods ie audio, cdrom, cd copy and check the burn tab.
make sure write cd is selected then you should be fine. hope this helps.

Re: burner

yep, simulation is the default with Nero.

try not using the wizard and just unticking the option under the burn tab.

what burner did you get mate?

Re: burner

I gave it a few more attempts, with the simulation stuff both on and off, and still no go. I even tried a different version of nero, and two other software packages.

I think I better re-install my OS because in my Spring Cleaning session I deleted the files the enable the computer to read CD tracks... OOPS. I'll be giving it another go after that.

J, I got the Sony burner with 24x10x40 written on the front, cost me $180 new.

I might also try finding some drivers for it from sony, not that I can find the site, but hey.

Thanks for the tips guys, I'll let ya know how I go.

You dont actually require drivers for a cd burner. The OS will work it out by itself. What OS are you running? It sounds like your setup in Nero is incorrect.

Re: Nero...

I may be wrong here but this could be your prob...

Your software has to support your burner and a newer one might not yet be supported by Nero. Also a slightly older version of nero might not support all the burn protection features and this could be screwing around with the burner. Make sure nero is the latest version from the website. If not then download the newest and get a crack for it - cheapish software..

There is no software drivers for them but there are firmware upgrades that are the equivelant of reconfiging a ECU to make it work better - ie if you **** it up then its a job for the repair shop.

Also Windows 2000 has issues with some burners that don't allow it to burn at full speed although thats not your prob..

Hope I helped...
