    Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format

    Thanks Lightning. At first, I didn't understand what you meant by "Try something other than CMC media", but now I get it. Is there a way to tell from the label if a disc is "CMC" before I buy it? Thanks to everyone else too for the education on discs. Never had problems using the cheap CDs, but I guess with DVDs, there is less room for error. John

    Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format

    Thanks for the link chewy, but installing the 'horn is not a problem. Once I got the disc burned, the install went fine.
  3. I was trying to burn a DVD ISO image (Windows Longhorn Beta 1) to a DVD -R disc on a Memorex Double Layer, Dual Format +/-, internal IDE DVD recorder, using 1.1.0.0, but got the errors "Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format". I tried it two more times, using lower write speeds, but still no go. I then loaded and used the OEM version of Nero that came with the drive (I don't like, and don't want to use Nero) just to see if it worked, and it did work fine. I'd rather use (and support!) ImgBurn. Here is the log file: I 10:48:29 ImgBurn Version 1.1.0.0 started! I 10:48:29 Microsoft Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600 : Service Pack 2) I 10:48:29 Initialising SPTI...
