Hello, Everyone at Techyv!

I'm having trouble with Nero. It won't burn DVD discs and pops up this error.

Can anyone please suggest what to do with error?

I don't want to ruin the discs by forcing the software.

There are many reason that can bring this error. First make sure that your DVD disk is writeable then make sure again that your drive have the ability to burn the disk as DVD. May be there are problem with your Nero burner. Your disk can be damaged. Try with another DVD disk. If you use windows 7 try with windows DVD maker or DVD burner. Try to reinstall your Nero burner or uninstall it at first, restart your pc than install the Nero again. Maybe your DVD writer does not work properly. Buy another one and try with that. That’s all.

Hi Gertrude,

When an error like that occurs, it means that the disk you are trying to burn from is corrupt. The disc has scratches and therefore the DVD Rom cannot read the data from it properly, that is why is says error reading data. The disc might have gotten the scratches due to dropping it on the ground or touching its sensitive surface hence spoiling the lenses. It is always good to handle your disk with extreme care so that you do not succumb to loosing important information.

Also, make sure that you create a back up of data especially when it is stored on a CD. CD's are vulnerable to breakage, therefore handle them with care. I am afraid in this case you might not be able to make a copy of your disk, because it is damaged.
