"The loaded disc is not empty..." with new DVD+RWs


Recommended Posts

Guest Ant

Hello,

I downloaded Windows Vista beta 2 ISO (3 GB!) file from http://download.windowsvista.com/previe ... wnload.htm overnight. I am trying to burn the image to a DVD+RWs (Office Depot brand -- 4.7 GB) with CDBurnerXP Pro v3.0.116.

I assume the HP DVD burner Writer 300c (USB; latest firmware) is compatible and works because I have no problems adding and erasing files with HP's DVD burner software. However, it cannot write to DVDs from ISO images. Hence, why I am using CDBurnerXP Pro.

I tried unformatted and erased (quick and full) DVDs with CDBurnerXP Pro, but it refused to burn the ISO file to them. I also checked the ISO file with ISOBuster v1.9, and it looked OK (no errors I guess since I could explore and read its readme.txt file).

Am I doing something wrong? I had expierences in burning to CD-RWs from ISO files without any problems on my home's old Plextor CD burner and Nero. I am using Windows XP Pro. SP2 (all updates).

What am I doing wrong? Am I using the wrong program or setup? Thank you in advance. :)

OK, I think I fixed my problem. All I needed was a reboot. :/

I sat up here for 2 hours this morning trying to figure out why it was telling me I didn't have an empty disk in the machiine, wehn I new it was just re-formatted. I took your advice and re-bottedmy machine, and I was able to copy to the disk.

Thanks again.
