stops at writing leadin, then burn unsuccessful

all of a sudden when I try to burn a dvd with nero video it get to the point of burning to disc, writing lead-in and stops there for 10 minutes or so and eventually says burn unsuccessfull, but does not write anything to the blank disc. I have looked on the internet for solutions to this and found nothing. I have been using nero video for years or more and never had this problem, I hope you have a solution

  • Hi Rich,
    The usual advice is to try lowering the burn speed option using the selection setting at the final screen of Nero Video (Recording Settings - Speed)

    I normally go no faster than 8X

    Possibly try another batch/brand of discs.

    To get a clue about what might be happening, the burn log could help.


    If you can find it and open it with Notepad, copy the text and paste up here (might need up to 3 replies to get it all in, following on from where it cuts off each time in the reply post) ...

    If you have Nero 2016 ...

    The burn log file for Nero Video would be here:

    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 2016\Nero Vision


    Note: Substitute your Windows user name for "YOURUSERNAME"

    That path could be hidden in Windows, so use the Windows Explorer View Tab to set it to show hidden files and folders from C:\Users\"YOURUSERNAME"

    and below.

    for Nero 10
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 10\Nero Vision

    for Nero 11
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 11\Nero Vision

    for Nero 12
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 12\Nero Vision

    for Nero 13
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 14\Nero Vision

    for Nero 14
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 15\Nero Vision

    for Nero 15
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nero\Nero 16\Nero Vision
