Windows 7: DVD Burning Issues

DVD Burning Issues

Hi There,

I am having an issue that seems to be related to Windows 7.

Whenever I try to burn any kind of DVD, using any program, Nero, Cyberlink Power2Go, even windows own built in burning software, every disk fails to burn.

When I boot into my Windows XP Partition on the same computer, using the same DVD drive, discs burn fine.

Having the same problem with my Windows 7 Laptop - - The main PC is running build 7068 x64 and the Laptop is running the x86 version of 7068

Any ideas folks?

Were your installs Upgrades or fresh and have they always had this problem or do you think it's possible that there is a conflict with something else you may installed?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

On my Main PC - it was a fresh install of Windows 7, on the laptop, it was an upgrade.

Both installs were done the day before yesterday and this is the first time I've tried to burn a disc.

Both installs are fairly clean, havent installed much at chances of a conflict are slim IMHO

Ok, the OP already has tried several products - the likelihood that another product will *work* when those failed, *particularly* the built in ISO burner, is pretty slim.

Therefore I say that there is something not working correctly on the system - and something very obscure.

Zach - please update your system specs (look to the link My System Specs to the left).

Also, have you made sure that every thing looks kosher in Device Manager? Have you *manually* installed *any* device drivers over the ones that Win7 installed? Do you have enough HD space to create a new partition and install another copy of Win 7 on that partition to test with a vanilla install? Also, have you checked for a BIOS update for your motherboard, as well as firmware updates for your Optical drive?

Windows7 b7057

I have the same problem as zach21uk - tried DVD+R single and DL Verbatim but every time I try to burn almost "data" DVD or image files it fails.
Tried Nero 7,8,9 , CDburnerXP, ImgBurn,..same result For ex. in NERO 7-9
it sucks at the start of the burn process /DVD disc looks "empty" when you
look from the burning side/ - so in NERO I think it fails when writing lead-in.
When tried another burning sw sometimes it was burning to the end and failed verification of the disc or when I tried to copy some files from those
I have NEC 3520A (with hacked FW), so I tried ASUS DRW-1608P3S with regular FW. Both of them I tried as "MASTER" on ATA cabel.
I have Win7 X64 b7057 , Gigabyte mobo, E7500 DualCore (regular speed, noc oC), 4GB Patriot memory, ASUS 4850 TOP HTDI.

Windows7 beta 7000

I copied a DVD for a friend last week using the Windows7 DVD burning and it copied fine. I do use the cheap DVD+R disks from Office Depot.

However, the first run I made I thought it didn't work. Apparently, it copies the DVD to the hard drive and says it's done. If tell it to burn again then it writes to the DVD.
