I am using Verbatim DVD - to record home made movies through Nero Vision essentials four, which has been working fine. Today i tried to burn another disk and it went through ok then the line which says Total progress stopped and wouldn't move. i then got a notice pop up saying:

'Sorry your compilation cannot be written to this kind of disk. Please insert a disk of the correct type, or modify the settings to make them compatible with the correct disk'.

I am very depressed at the moment, I rang up a friend who says I might have a virus, but I always update my free version of AVG when I switch on. I have never had a problem like this before so I wonder if the CD burner has gone wrong (which I hope not) or whether the disks are faulty. i ave tried two and have come up with the smae result. the guy who made me the computer doesn't live in the area anymore, so i am looking for a PC engineer which is like looking for a needle in haystack

Can anyone advise me please? I am not very computer illiterate and have another video to upload of my time in Cornwall. I knew I shouldn't have got up this morning.

Many thanks.

Are you using DVD-R or DVD-RW ? If you can burn RW, but not R, and the disc is fine, the problem probably lies in the recorder itself.

How large is the file - Will it actually fit onto a single layer dvd-r?

Just a thought - make sure you are not accidentally using the CD section of NERO instead of the DVD section.

Hi I am using a DVD-R and I click on make video CD, is that the right one? I have never had this problem before, do you think I should try some different disks?

I don't use NERO but I would have thought it would be "Burn a Video DVD"

Are you using Nero Start Smart to do this - maybe best to open Nero from Start - All Programs etc.

Video CDs are burned to CDs not DVDs.

You need to be in the DVD part of whatever section of Nero.

Seems to me you are trying to use the wrong setting. A Video CD is just that a " Video on a CD " usually limited to about 15 mins. You need to choose to a make DVD option with DVD discs.

Am I better off getting a newer version of Nero?
