    That is just an example of when i tried to burn some data on to a dvd+rw and i can't burn anything to normal dvd+r's because i have tried and wasted about 10 dvd+r's. My system ASPI wasnt installed (which is what nero toolkit said, so i used Force ASPI to install a system ASPI but it still didnt help.) i dont know what to do.....

    ?

    How do you know that's the problem? oh well...ure the tech person so I'll try it.

    ...

    Nero burned this time up tp about 5 percent and then it said "reset occurred", i forgot to get a log file for it but that's all i saw before it failed. Was i supposed to reboot my PC after i changed the registry value?

    You must get the system ASPI installed correctly . Info tool will register it when it is done correctly. Do a search at Google for Aspi layer files they are common , just follow the instrction .

    Well...

    I already installed an ASPI layer after i thought that was the problem. Info tool said it was installed and working properly after i installed it (Force ASPI). For some reason it only likes 2.4x speed now instead of the 4x.

    Your problem may not be software related. Switch your DVD burner to IDE 1, set the jumper to slave. If you have two hard drives then plug the second drive into IDE 2 as master and your DVD-ROM as slave.

    I would leave the DVD writer and the other Rom on the Secondary channel ,Writer as primary. Hard drives can default to CDrom slower speed when they share the same channel.
    Many things effect writing to ROm's and you have to experiment sometimes to get it right.
    Turning of Windows auto start for your Rom drives
    Turn DMA on or Off
    Try different Brands of Media
    Confirm you have the latest Firmware drivers from the manufacturer of the ROM
    Do a search at Microsoft for "Upper and Lower filters " you have to work in the Registry if you need to deal with them.
    Latest version of Nero
    Clean the Rom
    Confirm the TEMP files are deleted and they are on a drive that has lots of free space(Thee is a setting in NERO Preferences to Pick your Temp file
    Good luck and Let us know how it is going.

    That is not correct. Each IDE device has its own controller, but only one controller is active at any given time on a single IDE mainboard plug. The controller that is active of the two devices is always the master. If a hard drive is the master then it will only reduce its speed to recieve or send data to the second device if that device is slower than it is, for example a CDROM, DVD recorder or another hard drive that is slower. If the hard drive is slower than the recording optical drive, for any reason, then that leads to buffer underruns. If this happens for a long period of time, in a single session, then the CD/DVD recording process fails and you can throw the disc away. A master hard drive will never permanently reduce its speed just because the second device, whose controller will not be active, is slower than it is. The hard drive will not be any slower if the optical drive is on the same cable, IDE 1, or a different cable, IDE 2.

    I do not see what it is that you say is wrong in my answer. In fact part of your answer seems to support what I was trying to get at.The point of this thread is to troubleshoot a faulty DVD write process.I was not going to delve into the processes involved with IDE channel Controlllers etc.
    Placing DVD Roms on the same IDE channel causes issues when you attempt to perform any CD/DVD authoring etc. I believe it is always better to seperate HD's from Rom drives in most setups.
    Try a search at this site there are a number of good threads concerning , IDE controllers and Drive configuration.
