Question DVD burner problems

Hi all
I just got a SONY DVD DUAL LAYER BURNER DVD-RW DRU-700A and I am using the nero software that came with it. However I seem to be having a problem burning DVDs.(trying to get some data on it as backup) whenever I use the nero software *express* to burn the data to the DVD everything goes fine (as far as the burning seems to be going) but after the burning is done i tried to open the files on the DVD and nothing is there!! its empty and I can't even use it to burn something else inside!!

So i tried the nero burning software with data verfication on. and i saw on the display that it said something like "Mount DVD failed or something"

Does anyone know whats happening?

I Tried it with 2 DVDs and it still can't work!

Oh and another question... can that DVD burner be used to burn normal CDs?

thanks all

Default Re: DVD burner problems

1st of all, did you install the driver's for the new dvd player?,did it come w/it's own installation cd?

or was it just plug & play?
also it should be able to make music cd's as well, depends on the cd burning software you using.

I have never used a Dual Layer DVD Writer, but I imagine they write on both sides at the same time to increase speed on Dual Layered Disks.

Have you tried any other Writing programs? Intervideo, Roxio?
