Hi! My name is Apoorva. I have faced a problem with my blank DVD.

I had burned a blank DVD (Morserbaer ) in the month of July with some Data files using Nero 7.

Than, I kept this burned DVD into the "DVD Pack" which is provided by Moserbaer when one purchases a
10 Pack DVD.

Today, few mins back, I had inserted the same DVD into the DVD writer ( Liteon ) inorder to burn few more data on the same DVD.

When I clicked on the Burn button in Nero 7, it straight away progressed to 50% and than gave an error stating that Burn could not be completed.

( Options selected before clicking on Burn were :
Write on the left menu.
Speed was set to 8x, DVD supports upto 16x.
Enable multisession.
Verify data after burn.
)

Now what happened is that the disc has became inaccessible. It is not being read by the Liteon DVD Writer & seems to me like this disc has been damaged.

I tried few of the data recovery tools available on the internet
but were of no use.

Than, I removed the DVD from the tray and turned it upside down to see the recording layer and found that it has overwritten on the previously burned data. This is b'coz there is a big circle round the disc at the end of
and a medium size new circle in that big circle.

Anybody in this forum would have any idea as for how to recover the data from this DVD even though the recovery tools have already been used.

A quick reply in the above matter will be highly appreciable!!!

DVD Disc unreadable after 'Burn' being unsuccssful using Nero 7.

Hi Dai! Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I did not saved the report after the Burn being unsuccessful. Does Nero creates an automatic log file if a Burn is unsuccessful?

DVD Disc unreadable after 'Burn' being unsuccssful using Nero 7.

Hi Dai! I learned from the Nero's Support Website that a log of Burn history is automatically being created by the software (even if one forgets to Save the report at the end ) and is found under Nero 7\Core folder.

Kindly find the file name nero.txt attached.

Are you sure this is a log ? It's not a ".log" file, and the ".txt" file seems to be list of ALL the error codes and what they mean, not the log of whatever error codes were generated by the burn.

What happens when you just try to view the disk in Windows ?

Did you inspect the disk for dirt, scratches and gummy stuff. Cleaning sometimes helps, and I have heard that the disk scratch repair methods actually work too.

Apoorva, firstly my sincere advice.. you have your address (if its real) given in your information available to everyone online, fully. Thats not advised seriously and could be dangerous for you. Usually thats why we have nicks online too, so we don't even give our names away :smile: So I wouldn't give away so much personal information if I was in your position.

Onto your topic, I read the verifying log. It reads that the filesystem was corrupt among too many other things. Basically I think your DVD either was corrupt, or not supported by your DVD-R manufacturer.

Especially if it reached 50% too quickly, it couldn't have burned but probably found too many bad sectors so the verification failed.
