4163 - Burn time too slow

vbimport

#1

hey all, didn’t want my first post to be a problem but, o well
_
with my previous dvds that i burnt, i got burn times of full dvds from anywhere from 7:30 to 8:15 mins max if i remember correctly
now, the dvds that i burn with burn from a 9:00 min to a 10:30 max

i narrowed it down to:
-it’s the media’s fault cuz it started happening after i started using it
-i noticed that lead-in and lead-out takes around 30 secs each (but probably less), which means a total of around 1 min, but if u take that into account, it’s still a bit slower than my usual time with my old dvds
also, i never noticed lead-in and out with my old dvds cuz it was instant

it’s from fujifilms

i have a 4163b firmwire A104

example of previous media:

i don’t have the code but it’s

RiDATA (RiTEK) 8x 4.7GB DVD-R Spindle 50-pack

RiDATA (RiTEK) 8x 4.7GB DVD+R Spindle 50-pack

another question : are the dvds that i’m buying good?

Make a test burn using Nero CD/DVD-Speed and post the resulting graph here.
Perhaps the burner has to slow down because of bad media quality.
You can also make a test burn of an existing ISO file if you do not want to waste a media.

hmmm, very slow

edit

so i couldn’t believe how slow the transfer was so i took another of the same media and did another transfer test




#4

same here…first 1 was so slow but second got better…but still slow
but hey at least the DVD-R burned out ok :slight_smile:

did u fix the problem?

i think the ScanDisc is much more important than the speed test…


#5

the problem was most likely the media itself, i bought the brand that i use to use and the burn times are around 7:40-8:10 for full disc

~too bad, i bought 100 of those bad discs and don’t no that to do with them

Quality of Ritek discs are known to vary. The Ridata that you got previously may be a good batch. The Fuji one can be a bad batch. Since you still have quite a number of discs, you can try different fw and see which one will give you the best result. Another alternative is to experiment with MCSE.

That readtest don’t look too good for the first one, :frowning: - i don’t think a writetest would prove anything - must be poor media. I hate the RITEKR03 - got a bad spindle by my feet
try 4x … only sol-n for me
