Please help with DVD burning problem....

When buring to a DVD+R, the disk seems to burn normally with Nero6, however when the disk is reloaded it cannot be read. Sometimes nothing will show and other times Windows will error saying the disk is corrupt. The drive is capable of buring to + or - DVD's. It will write to a DVD+RW and read from it after the burn is done, but as I mentioned previously it will not do this with a DVD+R. The drive I am using is a Toshiba ODD-DVD SD-R5272.
Thanks in advance for any help regarding this matter.

And can you read commercial made DVD's? if not, your drive is bad. If it's not too old, you may have warranty left.

I can read and write CD-R's and CD-RW's, and I can read Commercial DVD's.
What could it be?


Thanks,

Maybe something to look after : if you burn a DVD, can you see it burns as much as it should? (like if you take a burnt one, that takes half or less of the dvd), and if you copy a whole dvd, does that work? or is the trouble only coming from burning assebled DVD's?

I've experimented in different ways.

When I look at a burn after it is finished. It seems to be writing what it should...for example....

If I burn one small file, it only "burns" a small part of the disc...if I burn 4.7 GB then it looks like the whole disc is being burnt.

So it looks as if it's not finishing the job.
Some things to try, or do : uninstall  and install nero again.
do you have device problems in device manager?
Do you have XP installed? and SP 1?
Did it work normally before?
You can try running SFC also

Thanks. I did a re-install of nero and it didn't change matters, and there are no probs in Device Manager. I just upgraded to SP2 (for XP) but I haven't tried to burn again. I'll run SFC and if that doesn't work I can re-install XP to see if that fixes it. If none of that does then I will return the drive.

Thanks a bunch for your help.
