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.
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?

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.

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..
