I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Professional on my laptop and I am having problems burning discs. I insert a blank DVD-RW and nero tells me that there is something on the disc and asks me to erase it. I do this and then it spits the disc out telling me to insert a new disc. Why is this? I know the disc is fine, its new and when I put it in my DVD recorder it reads fine but on my computer there is a problem with this. Any help please? There is something wrong with the burning.

What version Nero?

Uninstall the software and then reinstall it, assuming that some key file(s) is/are damaged.

Also...you can try burning with the native XP function or try a different software for burning...just to see if the problem is with Nero or the drive or the O/S.

All drivers are up to date. It was working fine two days ago with the same version of nero but suddenly stopped. I dont know why its telling me the disc has data on it when its new. I tried to burn a Data DVD through the windows explorer by dragging and dropping files onto the DVD and that worked. Not sure if windows 7 has anything to do with it. Is it possible to uninstall the driver and then re-install it?
