Cannot write DVD-R's

  1. Hi again

    I'm having fun and games with my DVD-RW! It won't burn any DVD's! I've disabled all of Window's burning apps, I've installed Nero 6 and all the updates but whenever I try to burn any data or video files it says there is a write error. There is a full log file attached for all you guys who can decipher them!

    It burns audio and data CD's no probs, I don't know whether I've bought crap DVDs (PCLine in case you wanted to know) or I should just get a new drive! It's an ATAPI DVD DD 2X16X4X16X. I must say I bought it from PC world and it was on discount because the box had been opened. I don't know whether that changes anything, like someone has tampered with it. I don't know.
    Thanking you all in advance!
