Windows 7 Native DVD Burning?
 
Ok, I've had it..... :)

Am I the only one on the planet who has multiple win7 PCs with different ODDs who quite simply cannot get the native burning feature to work, but who has absolutely no problem burning with a program like ashampoo?

I fried my USB ODD last night trying to do a firmware update to see if that would address the issue, but it's not hardware specific, I have the exact same issue with every PC in the house.

Is anybody out there actually able to right click on an ISO and get windows to burn it? (or for that matter, burn off a system restore disk?).

I never use native burning software I have always used imgburn . I could never get the native stuff to work for burning anything. one thing I also know and have no idea why it happens is that when ever I have to burn an OS I always have to set it to burn at the lowest setting know matter which burner ( DVD or CD burner ) I use.

My success rate with built in windows has been flaky at best.

ImgBurn is pretty much my goto as well.

AFAIK this wasn't an issue in early releases of win7, I'm going to guess it was SP1 that broke it. I can live with using a freeware burner for ISOs, but I wanted to burn a system disk to use windows native backup but can't because it keeps erroring out. Maybe it's my media..... (just used the last one of these so maybe a new brand will do the trick).

What's the current state of DVD +R vrs -R? Does that make any difference at all, or are they even still producing the two formats?

This is the error I'm getting......

The disc image didn't burn successfully because an error occurred. The device failed to accept the command within the timeout period. This may be caused by the device having entered an inconsistent state, or the timeout value for the command may need to be increased. (Error code 0xC0AA020D).
You'd think if it was a simple timeout issue that they'd have a quick hotpatch to increase the value.

I've never had the best success using the native burning 'software' provided, I typically have PowerISO installed so I tend to use that instead.

So why is it still included as a feature if it doesn't work? Does it work in windows 8?

I do dknow that the + _ R do have some influence but I actually don't remember which is the better to use for Software and not media. I usually just use a pendrive now

My personal experience, not exactly relating to native DVD burning, is that Daemon tools actually mess up ISOburner. It would all come out with errors until I switched over the Astroburn. So if you have some kind of ISO mounting software, it may mess up the native disk burning in Windows 7.

Initially that's the way I was leaning because I couldn't imagine MS keeping a "feature" around if it always errored out. The latest instance of this though was on a completely fresh install using one of their own programs (windows backup) to initiate a burn which failed.

Well.... that's 4 definite "doesn't work" and no "it works fine for me"... how can they leave an issue like this unresolved?

I have encountered this exact same problem while trying to burn windows backup from a clean install to a disc as well. It always failed unexpectedly hence why I abandoned windows for my backups.
