Arrow PLEASE HELP!!!

Hi guys I am attempting to upgrade my software version from v25 to v32 and have run into a problem. BTW I have a 2005 4.4i with stock navigation system and the MK 4.

Everything is good until I try to burn the file using alcohol 120%. I am using the exact steps from this thread. http://www.xoutpost.com/navigation-sy...-released.html

At the menu where I have to click on browse and open the file when I click next a message pops up saying this exactly: Alcohol detected a DVD burner installed on your computer. Do you wish to burn the current image file to a DVD media? (if you select no, Alcohol will only allow to burn the image file to a CD-R/W media). Here I have a choice of saying yes or no.

When I click yes a menu comes up where I choose the speed at which I want the write speed to be. I can set it at the lowest which is 1.2X. When I click start I get a message saying I must insert a blank disc even though I have already inserted one.

When I click no I get the same menu but I can only pick a lowest speed of 10X. I have not tried to burn at this speed because I think it is way to high.

This is where I am stumped and would really appreciate any help the members of this forum can provide. Thanks!!!

Oh yea and also if I screw up in this process but think I have done it right and walk over to my x5 and start updating the software will anything go wrong? I have heard of the problem where it will not eject but is there any problems where my navigation system could totally crash? Thank you very much for any help!

The burn speed should be set at a burn speed supported by the media you are using. Don't just arbitarily choose a speed, but select one the media supports.

In my opinion, ImgBurn (The Official ImgBurn Website) is a better burner than Alcohol 120%

I agree with jochen, imgburn is the better burner and burn the new disc at the slowest speed supported by the blank cd.

Alright I will try ImgBurn and see how it goes.

My other question is how do I know that the CD has been correctly burned and I can safely put it into the BMW's navigation. I know I will find out if it happened correctly or not after I put it into the BMW but is there anyway I can make sure before putting it into the BMW. Thanks so much for the help guys!!
