Hi Everyone:

       As a springboard from a couple of previous post, I am needing a little more help on using my Sony DVD burner to record.  Today, I got Nero 6.3.1.6 which autodetects my burner.  At this point, I am needing instructions for recording from folders containing data files (jpgs)  on my HDD to a DVD +R.  

       Thank you

       George

If you open Nero, you just need to create a data disc. Choose what files you want to burn, and then nero will do the rest.

Hi There:

      Thanks so much for the followups.  After doing these steps, I am still running into problems.  Here is what happens when the first blank CD-R is placed into the drive.  I get an error message indicating the disc is not writable.  Please insert a writable disc.  Disc required for compilation: CD-R/RW.  When a 2nd, entirely different, CD-R is inserted, it identifies the disc type in the recorder as CD-R then ejects the door for removal of the CD-R.

      In closing, I apologize for the complications here.  But, I need further help.

      Thank you

GMartin, this is a very simple fix. Nero just has to be told what kind of burn you are doing, DVD or CD-R.

Open "Nero Express". The first window that appears allows you to choose what type of disk to create. Right above that you will notice a drop down box. This is what we want to change. Click the drop down and a list should now be visible. The top two options should be
Image Recorder [DVD]
Image Recorder [CD-R/RW]
We do not want to choose these, Image Recorder allows you to make an ISO image of the CD or DVD in the drive. Next you should see the model number of your DVD Burner, mine for example is..
I: TDK  DVDRW420N  [DVD]
The key here is the [DVD]. There should be an option like this
I: TDK  DVDRW420N  [CD-R/RW]

You must choose [CD-R/RW] to record CD's. Once you have selected this option you can create a data CD.

If you are not using advanced Nero (not Express) you can click the "Recorder" button at the top then click "Choose Recorder". This will give you the same options. That should take care of your problem.

Hi There:

       Thank you so much for the instructions.  I found them very easy to follow.  Unfortunately, I am still having some trouble.  After following the steps, the CD-R is ejected by the DVDROM burner as if it does not recognize the CD-R as a recordable medium.  As before, I try an entirely different cd-r and get the following:  Disc analysis failed.  The error log contains more information about the reason why it failed.  

       Any further assistance on getting started with the first recording will be most appreciated.  I am sorry about this problem, but, hopefully, we can get through it.

What is the exact model number of your DVD burner? To find this out open Windows Explorer (Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Windows Explorer or Hold down the windows key on the keyboard then press the "E" key). Right click your DVD drive then click properties. On the next window that pops up you should have a tab at the top named "Hardware".

I have a TDK DVD burner and mine is listed as "TDK DVDRW420N".

Are you sure your DVD burner can burn CD-R? It sounds like it cant. The model number will us in knowing exactly what your burner can and cant do.

Hi

       The model number of the DVD burner as indicated within Device Manager is DW-U14A.  It is my understanding, based upon my conversation with the company for which it was purchased, that it is compatiable with CD-R & CD-RW's.

        In any case, I hope the model number will prove fruitful in resolving this issue.  

        Thank you

Have you successfully burned anything with this new drive ever? Was it DVD or CD? Was this burner already in your computer or did you buy it and put it in? What brand of CD's are you using to burn CD's?

Disc analysis failed - When you get this error have you already opened Nero, added files to be burned then click the burn button?

Hi Everyone:

       Thanks for the followups.  Interestingly, Nero 6.3 worked fine using my regular cd burner but manifested problems when tried with my dvd burner.  

       I have to assume it is a problem with the dvd burner and not the software in this particular situation because I was able to make consistent burns using my regular cd burner.
