I have had the same problem with other manufacturers
Upgrading the firmware fixed the problem
On one drive I had to change the firmware the last version (downgrade) to fix the problem

Depending on what you are attempting to record maybe nothing is wrong

If you are attempting to copy Movie Files to a DVD you do need Nero to do the job or at least another Burning package. However if you are attempting to copy data from the HDD to a DVD for backup purposes then you should be able to do this through Windows though using something like Nero will give you better results.
