2) Do you have

3) Did you turn
off any anti-virus and other burning applications
which might access the CD/DVD units at the same
Note 1: A lot of users reported problems with NAV on
some configurations. If you have MMC errors or more,
please disable the anti-virus software during the
Note 2: A lot of users reported problems with VIA
and nVidia low level drivers (i.e. IDE drivers).
Sometimes Microsoft certified drivers work better,
and sometimes a new version of the drivers from VIA/nVidia
can help. Please post your problems on the forums or
contact us if you are unsure.
4) Are you using
appropriate media for your operation?
(DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM) Each format
is different and can have a different behavior
depending on your system. The key to a good backup
is to use good media. Check if the media you are
using is highly compatible with your hardware. Check
this link (http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdwriters) to
see what users think about the hardware and media
you are using. If you suddenly have problems with
MMC errors, please try various media before
contacting us. Also don't believe the marketing
about the speed. The slower the writing speed, the
better the backup.
5) Did you check
the surface of the media?
It is a stupid, but widespread mistake. Check if the
media to read and/or write is clean, scratch-less,
not too transparent or damaged. The quality of the
surface can greatly influence the overall backup
6) Did you let
the system work quietly during the process?
If you don't have problems, you can interact with
your computer of course, but if you have any faulty
behaviour, please do not use your system during a
7) Try a different
unit. Even if you have a reader and a writer, the
backup quality highly depends on the hardware. There
are no rules about which is the best to use, you
will have to try for yourself. If you have a
playback problem, try to use your writer for reading
first. Some units can be damn slow compared to
others. The best manufacturers depending on our
experience are Plextor, Lite-on (writers), LG
(recent units), and Sony (DVD writers). The most
problematic drives are Toshiba, old LG, Pioneer,
TDK, and MSI. Of course it doesn't mean it will not
work if you are using an unlisted manufacturer or
model. It just means we don't know all the models
and it depends on your own use of our products.
