View Full Version : Files on DVD not showing up?

I have just recently burned a Data DVD disc with 4.6 GB of Pearl Jam audio in FLAC.

Now, I burned through Nero and I was told that the burn was successful and no errors.

I popped my DVD+R into my DVD+R/RW drive just to check it all out and make sure everything was just fine and dandy; I come to realize it isn't.

I browse to my DVD Drive to view the files and the disc shows that it's empty with 0 free space.

So I tried burning the files again with the same disc thinking maybe luck of the draw, I put it on Simulation at first.

Nope, the disc is full.

There's no hidden files on here , and I tried reading my other DVD+R discs (same brand) and they read fine.

Maybe just a bad disc here?

could be a bad disc, especially if yer using cheap media...but i'm curious, you wrote above that "it's empty with 0 free space"...0 free space would indicate that the disc is full, therefore containing the data...

i would try reburning the shows using a new disc & Nero ROM...when the window pops up asking which kind of data disc, choose DVD-ROM(ISO)...other than that i don't know what to tell you...have you tried the disc on another computer?

It could have an open session. Open NERO and go to Recorder / Disc Info if gives you an option to close an open session try that. Make sure the Multisession tab has the No Multisession radio button selected.

I have had this sort of thing happen to me. I don't know what causes it, but I've found that if I reboot my computer and then try to open the disc it usually works.

I recently had the same problem..

Maybe it's because your file names are too long..

I renamed everything, burned it again and everything was ok..
