try a different disk.

Maybe the new ones are bad.

"When DVDs go bad". LOL

Have you formatted them (if your software needs it)?

Why would he need to format them? Only necessary if they are rewritable discs that you wish to use with a packet writing program.

I have to format all DVDs with my software.

I have never formatted a DVD or CD whether they are RW or not.

I just use Nero in Multisession mode. Never had any problems.

Never had to format a disc, burnt hundreds!
Suggest you try a different brand of disc.

Like I say, folks, it depends on the software. I don't use Nero (and never will again) but my software requires that you format the disc.

May I ask what software you use?

DLA.

"Drive Letter Access (DLA) allows you to drag and drop from your hard drive to your CD-RW drive, copying the file to the CD-RW media."

I see that this is a packet writing program.
It seems that the discs are not compatable with your drive.
What drive is it have you checked to see if there are any firmware updates to accomodate newer discs.
