  • If you still can't solve your problem, please contact our support team,do not forgrt to send us these information : Version number,Operating System's version,Hardware configuration,The error message .

Here you can find some tips and advice, please follow all these guidelines before sending email to us.

  1. Do you have the latest firmware for your hardware (DVD writer)? If you are not sure, check the information on this page:
  2. Did you turn off any anti-virus and other burning applications which might access the CD/DVD units at the same time?
    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 writing process.
    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.
  3. 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 ( and 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.
  4. 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 process.
  5. 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 read/write operation!
  6. 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.
