Click More for a drop down area with more added control of the write method used, see the picture below.
Write Method: If you have the option for Allow files to be added later enabled, this feature defaults to Track-At-Once mode.
Finalize Disc: Only select this feature if you do not plan on writing to the disc anymore. Used to close disc.
Determine maximum speed: The speed test determines how quickly the compiled files can be accessed. If the access speed is slower than the burning speed, the burning speed is reduced so as to avoid a buffer underrun.
Simulation: The simulation runs all the steps involved in burning a medium apart from activating the laser beam, so that you can assume that if the simulation is successful, the burning process will also be successful.
Write: This checkbox enables the actual physical burning process.

The Burning Process window is now shown on the PC. If any error messages are received during the write and/or the write fails, be sure to Save the Nero log file to the desktop. This file will have critical information about the system, as well as a very detailed description of the write process that was attempted. And it will provide exact error codes that will help the Technical Support team to trouble-shoot the issue. Without this file, we may not be able to properly assist in resolving the issues.

If you select the Exit option, you will get the window as shown below, asking if you wish to save your project? Only select Yes if you plan on doing this exact same write operation in the future, as this will create an NRI image file that will allow you to do this same write operation without needing to select the format, the files, the write method, etc. It will do the exact same write operation without any input needed from you. In most cases, select No for this window.
