    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I have removed your copy and pasted logfile and replaced it with an attachment. It makes your post a lot tidier.

    Have you tried using different dvd media, as it`s possible you have a dodgy batch of disks?

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Providing the blank disks are ok, it sounds like your drive is either dying or in need of a lense clean. I suppose another outside possibility is a faulty ide cable.

    How old is the drive? The reason I ask is the laser`s don`t last forever in optical drives.

    Regards Howard :)

    Name the Device

    That means the make and model.
    This should be the first line or in the title.
    Then tell us what Software your useing.This is the key to answering this.
    My Sony manual tells me what type of discs i can use and the recommended
    brands.Read yours.:D Or get a pdf version.
    Only discuss the problem drive.
    Yes Howard i wore out a couple,just past the warranty.

    Hi ive just brought the dvd burner and it came with a nero burner (demo) but i have brought nero 7. I have another software i tried using but that to didnt work. I can burn data on to a normal cd just nothing on to the dvd discs..

    I cant understand why as i can burn on them using an asus laptop and every thing else in my pc is asus..

    Are you useing Nero StartSmart ? See if it detects your blank dvd disc.
    StartSmart is the best way to use Nero 7.
    Sony gave me the complete Nero 7,you got a bad deal.
    But read your manuals for compatible disc types and Brands.
    Some might not work with your burner.
