Problem:

How many times it happens that you are writing a disc / burning a disc and it abruptly fails. The CD / DVD becomes corrupt and is no more usable. Well lets look at some common reasons for the same and ways to prevent the same.

Solution:

The most common reasons for the disc writing failure are:

Advertisement
  1. Insufficient space on C-drive (hard disk partition containing operating system, maybe different from C-drive in some cases).This is so because many DVD / CD writing software use this drive to buffer the contents to be written on the disc.
    • FIX: Make sure there is sufficient space in C drive.
  2. High speed writing of disc may also cause problems as some of the media are not of very good quality to support high speed writing.
    • FIX: Use medium speeds preferably if the disc writing is failing.
  3. Sometimes the bus cable is shared between your CD/DVD writer and other discs. This may cause problems as the data flow may get corrupt while writing the disc.
    • FIX: Try to use a dedicated bus cable for CD/DVD writer drive.
  4. CD/DVD writer lens is dirty.
    • FIX: If the lens cleaning is required that can be done by following these steps.
  5. Faulty CD/DVD writer.
    • FIX: Get it repaired / replaced.
