DW+RW DL disc burning failures are driving me crazy !

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

21 months ago I purchased a external USB connect SONY DVD RW DRU-720A burner. I usually burn with Nero 7 or sometimes DVD Fab Platinum . I burn to DVD 4.7 disc's with no problem. When I 1st purchased my Sony unit , I did once successfully burn to Verbatim DW+RW DL .

Last week, I tried to burn to dual layer disc's again with Nero 7 . And I used Sony DW+RW DL disc's. That failed . So I updated my firmware to JY08 , purchased some Verbatim DW+RW DL disc's and tried to burn with Nero 7 . And that burn failed.

 

After receiving some answers to forum posts, I made concerning my burn failures , I followed the advice I received and download & installed IMGBurn 2.4.2.0 . And this afternoon, I opened up IMGBurn and tried to set the book type to DVD_ROM . I couldn't find a setting for Sony , so I clicked OK and tried burning to Verbatim DW+RW DL disc's with IMGBurn . And my first IMGBurn failed , with Verbatim DW+RW DL disc's , just like it failed with Nero 7 .

 

This is starting to get very frustrating and expensive . I've spent over $40.00 on, so-far , un-burnable DW+RW DL disc's .

I went over some of the posts in this forum , and I see that other folks are successfully using IMGBurn, and a SONY DVD RW DRU-720A , to write on Verbatim DW+RW DL disc's . So why isn't it working for me ?

I also cleaned the lens on my SONY DVD RW DRU-720A , but burn failures keep coming !

I would post a IMGBurn error log with this post , but I couldn't find one in the log file folder . But here is my filter drive load order : ===============================================

We can't do anything without a log.

 

That said, if the drive isn't working it's probably easier to just buy a new one rather than keep on wasting expensive DL discs (which are DVD+R DL btw, not DVD+RW DL).
