1633S Going Bad?

vbimport

#1

Greetings all, I have a question I hope one of you folks could answer for me. I bought a 1633S a little over a month ago, and have made backups of several of my dvd movies to use in my portable player. Each movie has copied fine and played back fine until tonight. Tonight I tried copying “Without A Paddle”, and the process ran to 100%, then it errored out. Considering this was the first disk that I had reauthored instead of just shrinking (using dvd shrink 3.2), I thought I must have done something wrong. Anyhow, I shut down my computer then turned it back on and figured I’d have another go at it, only this time without reauthoring, but I got the same result. I then thought that perhaps it had something to do with the “Without A Paddle” original disk, so I decided to try with “The Village”. I again shut down and restarted before trying to copy “The Village”, but once again, the process got to 100%, then errored out (saying something about disk-at-once). Nothing has changed on my pc since I made my last copy of a movie last weekend, and that one burned fine. Also of note is that even though I’ve gotten this error message on three disks now, all three play fine in my portable player (as well as my xbox, as I tried 'em in there first after the failure messages.)

System specs are:
DFI LanParty UT 250GB (nForce3 250GB chipset)
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (NewCastle)
1024 MB PC3200 DDR Ram (2 512 sticks)
Lite-On 1633S (BS0S official firmware)
Audigy2 Sound Card
Samsung 160GB 7200RPM 8MB cache HDD
WD 60GB (Forgot the speed and cache)
BFG 6800GT OC Video Card
WindowsXP with SP2
Using DVD Shrink 3.2
Nero Express 6.3.1.25 (which is what I believe DVD Shrink is using to burn the actual disks).

The media I’m using is Maxell DVD-R (media code is MXL RG03).

I’m not sure if the problem is with the drive or with Nero, however, since nothing has changed on my system since my last successful burn, I’m doubtful it’s the software, so I’m more inclined to believe it to be a hardware problem. As such, I posted it in this forum as opposed to the Nero forum. My apologies if this is in the wrong place.

Here is the error message I’m getting:

Hopefully one or more of you can figure out what’s causing this problem for me. Thanks in advance for any help on this issue. :slight_smile:

Welcome to cdfreaks :slight_smile:

Hmm, that error message looks strangely similar to a Nero serial number.

Try a reset learn using the [thread=112103]EEPROM Utility v2[/thread]. Make sure you backup your EEPROM first. If it doesn’t help you can always use the backup to restore you drive to where it is now.


#3

seems like your nero serial number is outdated or blacklisted. update nero to newest version and try again.


#4

Thanks for the info. The serial number is the one that came on the sleeve with the copy of Nero Express that came with the drive, however I did apply the upgrade patch to 6.3.1.25 as the version that was on the bundle cd was something like 6.3.1.11 (or .14? can’t really remember lol) as I read that the bundle version was having write problems with SP2. Did I need to put my serial number back in after patching to the .25 version? I’ll try re-entering the serial number and I’ll also try the EEPROM Utility suggested by C0deKing and see if that corrects the issue. I can’t see why the serial would be outdated or blacklisted as it’s the one that came with the drive which is just slightly over a month ago. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the welcome. I’ve been reading the site for quite some time


#5

Hmm, just looked over the stuff that came with the drive, and the nero oem suite does not have a serial number on the sleeve, it was powerdvd that had a serial. I guess the oem suite didn’t need a serial to be put in but after I ran the upgrade patch it must’ve wanted a serial to be manually put in. Is this standard that the oem doesn’t require a serial to be put in, or do I need to contact lite-on for a serial number, or does the 6.3.1.25 upgrade patch not allow for serials that may be embedded in the oem versions?


#6

nero oem versions usually don’t need a serial number.
the newest nero version is 6.6.0.6.
uninstall nero, install your oem version and then install v6.6.0.6. with this way, nero will not ask for a serial. if it does, you have to stay with the oem.


#7

I just tried as you suggested chok0, and that worked. I just made a new copy of Without A Paddle, and it burned through to completion without any errors. :slight_smile: Also, while I was reinstalling the OEM version that came with the drive, it displays the embedded serial number, so I wrote that down in case I have any problems in the future. Thanks for all the help from you both, it’s very appreciated! (and I’m really glad that it didn’t turn out to be the drive going bad because I’m really liking the drive so far.) :slight_smile:
