Windows 7: strange problem burning DVDs

12 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64 pro/ Windows 7 x86 Pro/ XP SP3 x86

This could be a buffer under-run error which is creating gaps. I dont know if this holds true now but for many drives, there used to be shift points from one speed to another, say 4x to 6x and then 6x to 8x. But the burner is supposed to handle these on the fly.

Have you tried changing the media brand? If that doesnt help, I would strongly suspect a bad drive.

hey guys,
RMAd my drive and got a brand new 7260s today. Started with a test burn of my rewritable dvd which completed successfully and the data worked fine.
Problem is solved however there is a small glitch,
Even after burning 2gb of data explorer is showing the dvdrw disc empty. properties inside the dvd root folder showing size 174bytes, size on disk 4kb even on erased disc. I am little hesitant to move on to burning dvdr discs because of this.

Is this normal behavior with rewritables?
