My pc dvd burner is failing help!

    Basically my Dvd drive from my pc has stopped burning. It starts off trying to write the lead in on nero, i then hear a continous whirling sound from the drive which seems to be just going round and round again. The drive then fails the disc and nero aborts.


    whn u try to burn,use nero express to burn,tht might work,
    it worked for me b4

    Oher things that might be worth a try - clean the lens, buy a dvd cleaner or try a different make of DVD in driver, mine didn't like Packard Bell discs fo some reason.

    Buy a new one?
    they can be got for around £15 and simple to fit

    remember buying my first pioneer for over £200 yikes

    Does it burn with windows - are you sure it's not an issue with Nero?

    Install Imgburn [url][/url] use mirror 8 (as long as mirror 8 still uses imgurn host. if not then whichever mirror says imgburn host) then try and burn to the disc's you're using then post log of failed burn.

    This will show media and burner being used.…exe

    Pioneer seem to be discontinued most places now. LG and Sony/NEC make a decent drive though.
