Nero is an n excellent for writing any kind of CD or DVD. It is creating problem because it can not recognize its necessary tools. May be your DVD writer is too old so that it can’t write or you r writing some corrupted data or may be there is a overflow of data so that it can not hold your disk capability.

Whatever it is if your resources are all right but you can not write then compromise some ability. Uncheck that check box 1. Verify data after burning 2. Allow files to be added later.

And also decrease your writing speed form your left by clicking left arrow. Writing speed for CD uses 16 xs and for DVD uses 8 xs.

If you frequently burn CDs and or DVDs on your optical drive and you sometimes can’t burn a disc, try using a different burner software. Like if you are using Nero to burn CDs and DVDs and you can’t burn a particular disc, try using an alternative application like ImgBurn. See if this works.

If this doesn’t work and you still can’t burn that particular disc, try cleaning the lens of your CD or DVD writer. If you have a DVD player and you use a DVD lens cleaner on it, you can use its lens cleaner to clean the lens of your optical drive.

Or just buy on a local store or online like this Maxell CD-340 190048 CD/CD-ROM Laser Lens Cleaner on Amazon for $7.80. Follow the instructions on the package for cleaning your drive’s lens. After cleaning the lens, try burning the disc again and see if it works. If this doesn’t fix the problem, the problem there is probably with the blank disc you are using.

Try using or buying a different brand of CD-R or DVD-R then see if it works.
