    Hi I'm a noob here... and I was wondering if you guy's could help...

    I'm trying to burn some music discsbut I get nuffink but coasters!... :mad: (TraxData 10x media)

    My system is Compaq Lappy (705ea), WinXP Home, Tosh SD-R2002 CD-RW/DVD combo (1Q35 - 4x4x24x6)(built-in), Nero 5.5.8.2 (classic not express), ASPI 4.70...

    I tried uninstalling nero and re-installing... all kind's o' stuff...

    Could this be Hardware or Software?!?...

    Apart from the built-in burining (WinXP), Nero is the only burner I've got, uness you count EasyCD v4 on me K6II system...

    I'll just have to burn on me old system untill I build/upgrade it!...

    Is it possible to download EasyCD 5 (for XP) so I can demo it, I've looked on Roxio's website and can't find a demo...

    sounds like your gettin buffer underruns, I'd suggest you try making an image to your HDD 1st b4 burning.. Nero has the option to create temp image 1st, this will create the CD as a file on your PC, and then burn from that. It takes slightly longer than normal, but should work.

    Worth a shot at least :)

    Hope that helps

    Yay!... :D

    It Worked!.. :cool:

    Only took 4 mins to make the image (45min's Audio), then 16mins to burn that to CD!...

    The Buffer (Record) seems to hover around 96% no matter what..

    Cheers dude!..
     
  5. Nero has never failed on me. I suggest burning at a lower speed.

    Also, try to close all programs except Nero. With your hard disk trying to swap data from one cd rom to the other, it's tough for it to keep up, especially with other programs running. I'm sure you probibly already knew that though...;)
