I have several sessions burnt on a DVD-R, but got stuck with the last session.

The error code is "Writing Error:(3)"

Can someone explain what this means?

I have attached a snapshot of the error.

Tks for taking the time to reply.

Overwrote: I thought there was a feature to protect against this?

Anyhow, data was quite recent and I erased the DVD and started again.

But I will watch out for this "OverWriting" possibilty happening again.

You were using a rewritable disc?

That explains a lot. There is a reserved area on a rewritable disc, much like a FAT that contains the instructions for how data is stored on the disc. You had just enough data that it tried to write to this reserved area. (in simple terms)

That was an eye-opener. I am new to optical media burning and have "burnt my fingers"

in the process. Being cautious by nature, I did not delete the copied data from my Hard Drives (to save space etc.), and I breathed a sigh of relief at this aftertought, otherwise I would have ended up with a useless DVD RW disk.

Tks for the explanation
