Im using the DVD re-writer to burn ISO files.
I must of tried 6 Tesco DVD's now, different torrents, different softwares (Nero, ISO Buster, Power ISO and gBurner), so far only been sucessfull with Wink Server 2K3.

Any ideas why I cant get Vista Ultimate on to these DVD's?
Is it because they are cheapy Tesco ones?
Or am I doing somthing wrong.
The latest Vista Ultimate Iso file didn't load into Nero saying - 'This is not a valid Nero Image file'.

What's the size of the file? That could be an issue, because obviously if it's too big it won't burn.

If you are getting error messages just loading up the files then your problem is not going to be the blanks disks. Sorry to say but sounds like your images are duff.

When you do the downloads, are you doing a SFV checksum test ?

Yeah I has that set to default and as for the images being duff, it cant be as im downloading off a very established site which has feedback and all the people who have downloaded them said it worked fine.

I've had problems with Tesco's DVD-R before, I tend to use a more reliable make like verbatim. The Tesco discs tend not to burn too well at slower speeds.
