Video files - burn fails

I have been using Nero 7 OEM and a Samsung SH-S203P SATA DVD drive to burn video and ISO images without problems.
Firmware is up to date and I am using Vista 64 bit
However for the last few weeks the burns have failed with this error

Illegal disc

Burn process failed at 12x (16,620 KB/s)
I have tried dropping the burn speed to 4X but it hasn't helped.
I can copy the files to my XP computer and burn there with Nero 6 without problems.
Is it likely that the drive is starting to play up or something has gone wrong following one of the Vista patches

Is it worth trying cleaning the laser optics for the drive?
It would explain an ability to read, but not write.

Sounds like it is nero, if you can burn with a lesser version,  the drive is not liking something in the set up,  I always use Ashampoo burning Studio, does the job with out the clutter of nero with which I always seem to get problems especially since switching to a lightscribe

That could be unfortunately with Vista 64 bit I am somewhat limited - thought (heresy I know)  - doesn't vista include a burning tool- must check

Re: Video files - burn fails

I am no vista expert, I haven't even seen it in operation.  I think you are right, it has a burning tool, based on Roxio.  just off the top of my flies landing ground, could the two Roxio and Nero be causing a conflict.
I notice reading around that several others have had or got this problem all using different makes of Burner. 
I don't know what you want to burn and whether this would be any help. but it is my favourite F word    FREE

Re: Video files - burn fails

Just tried imgburn - worked like a charm.
Except that flaming noise when it finishes - I had the speakers on  Grin
Thanks for the help - looks as though it is Nero and Vista 64 bit  Angry

Re: Video files - burn fails

A while ago, I had ROXIO installed, then someone suggested, and loaned me their Nero disc.... on the setup it complained that there was a conflict with ROXIO and it must be uninstalled before Nero could be installed and run correctly.... so you may be finding, as someone said, a conflict with the VISTA 64 burner..............
