    I'm trying to put some Divx files on to a data DVD disc using Nero but every time I try to burn, a prompt says I'm using the wrong disc type.

    I've got a DVD+R in the drive and I've used these before to create 'regular' DVD discs, so the question is:

    Can you only record data discs onto DVD-R?

    (I don't have any to be able to test this out.) If DVD+R should work, then I'm not sure why I'm unable to create a data disc and I'd appreciate any advice.

    DVD+R and DVD-R are both able to be used as data discs. Is it possible you have a faulty batch of discs? A compatibility issue between your discs and your recorder? A software bug?

    More questions than answers lol

    Well, the disc I used came from the same pack of 10 (Tesco's own ones) and the others have worked fine for other DVDs I've created from my PC (using Nero.) I have also tried a different disc but it still didn't work.

    However, I've also noticed that the error I get specifically says "Type of disc required: DVD-R/RW" so maybe it's a software problem with Nero?

    I'll go get some -Rs and see if that works.

    Thanks.

    Can I recommend www.svp.co.uk I use them for all my discs, very reasonable prices :smashin:

    I hope this thread is O.K, I don't work for svp, just a recommendation :cool:

    Verbatims are generally recognised as being a top notch disc.

    AVOID Tescos data DVD's.
    I have had the same problem with those discs on certain PC burners.
    Compatiblity issue most likely.
