My trouble is just the opposite----I didn't have a D9 disc so I put it on a D5----Now I've got the D9's but every time I try to burn to the D9 disc it starts to burn or will burn but then kicks the disc out and tells me there was an error or I need to chance the settings----I can still burn a 9 to a 5 with no trouble but want to go back to the 9's now that I have them----I've burnt lots of 9's, now that I burnt a 9 to a 5 I can't seem to get back to doing 9's----Why??
Hi, Shawn. It is because that there is a temporary folder created on your hard drive. Please make sure that the capacity of your hard drive is three times larger than that of your DVD.
