'failed To Start Source Writing Operation' Error

Question

I am constantly getting this error while trying to burn DVDs. I have tried defragmenting hard drives beforehand, tried DirectX updating (all current), uninstalling & reinstalling the software, but the problem persists. It has cost me a great number of DVDs and is becoming most annoying. I have tried searching for update patches for Windows 8.1 to no avail. Any suggestions?

There in not Update as NXT NXT 2 & NXT 3 are alreay Win 8 Compatible...

 

First thing is to insert your Roxio NXT disc. Choose Repair when it is offered and let it run its' course...

 

Then reboot and try it again ONLY select the File or Folder option in leu of the disc. (saves discs should it not work)

 

Let us know ;)

Deweywright, to answer your questions, the problem only occurs in the MyDVD application and only when writing video discs. Writing data discs is no problem. And I have no problems reading them.

 

Regarding DVD formats, I am using Memorex 8.5 GB DVD+Rs.

 

I would suggest you first burn to a Video_TS folder or image file. This could tell you if the problems already occurs before the actual burning. If this is successful you can then burn the folder set or image file to a DVD.

 

How long in time is the project you are trying to burn?

MyGuggi, I have done the 'repair' as suggested and burned the project to an image (.iso) file. But now I can't get the image to burn! Obviously I am doing something wrong. I tried to look up burning an image to disc in the help section but all it does is tell you how to create an image file. It does not tell you how to burn that .iso file to a disc, and when I have tried I can't find a way to. Suggestions?
