ARGH! Nero won't burn DVD-R on NEC ND-2500A

vbimport

#1

Nero won’t burn DVD-R on my NEC ND-2500A in external USB case. It’ll burn DVD+RW just fine but errors out on DVD-R disks. What’s so differnet about the way they’re written? I get “SCSI command aborted” when trying to write the leadin. Once this happens, the disc is toast. I’m at a loss. I’m running Nero 6.3.0.3 on my laptop (AMD 2400+, don’t know the chipset) Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what’s going on?


#2

Could be a media issue… have you tried more then one brand of
-R yet?


#3

Can someone please help me with the same issue? I went out and specially bought a matching case(BYTECC) with a Silver ND-2500A just so I could backup my consulting data. I bought a 5 pk of Memorex (CM MG… or something like it) just to test and went through 4 of them last night and turned them into coasters.

My computer spec is:

1800+
Epox 8KHA+
Pioneer DVD-116 Reader on Sec Master
QUE burner CDRW on Sec Slave.

Built my NEC-2500 as MASTER on the External USB2.0 case. I use Nero 6.3.0.3 Ultra Edition and I am new to NERO and DVD burning. When I burn Data I get everyhting to go smoothly except Nero spits out “SCSI Command Abort” and dies. Then I get a new fangled coaster.

Any help is appreciated. I am hoping there is a solution other then installing it as an internal like Smabbage said in another thread. Please Help as this is my first foray in DVD and I have very little clue.

Regards,
Ton

It would help a lot if you post the Nero log file (though do remove your Nero serial number, which is right at the top). Without it, it’s really a case of us playing a guessing game as to what happened.

Tonrar, Maybe it’s the media. I had problems with CMC media burning at 4x with my NEC both installed internal, as well as using the same Bytec case you mentioned. I burned in the Bytec case at 2.4x successfully. Yesterday I moved my burner to be internal (and threw a 160 gig drive into the Bytec case), and was successful burning at 2.4x there too. I’m using the same version of Nero as you.


#6

Nero 6.x has given many people (with various burners) numerous issues.

I would recommend trying another burning app.
I use RecordNow DX and it burns DVD-R great at 4x with my 2500.

Hello David,

Here is the log file… I got another 5 pk of Memorex (sucker for punishment) and gave it another go:

#8

Key 0x05, Code 0x26, Qual 0x02 is “Parameter value invalid”. It’s almost as if something is corrupting the data send to the drive somehow, or it’s somehow not happy with what it received when it received it.

The really bizarre and annoying thing is that your simulation works just fine. Is the simulation always OK? I would recommend you get some 4x DVD-RW or 4x DVD+RW media for testing purposes - at least that way you won’t ruin a write-once blank when testing if the burn goes wrong. The reason for trying to find 4x media is that that will hopefully write at the same speed as the write-once media you’re attempting to use.

I think it likely that one of two things is to blame - the media or the USB setup. I’d start by trying some rewritable media - you can write and erase that many times in testing. If the problem goes away on rewriteable media, try some different -R or +R media. I’m using MCC01RG20 Verbatim 4x DVD-R in my ND-2500A, which writes at 8x.

For DVD+RW I’ve got some Imation 4x DVD+RW - not usually a brand I’d usually buy as they could be anything, but a bit of Net searching showed they were likely to be RICOHJPNW11, which they are. My drive writes them quite happily at 4x.

If the drive doesn’t perform properly on rewriteable media, I would temporarily remove your CD-RW or DVD-ROM and fit the ND-2500A in the machine you’re using. I appreciate it’s an external drive you’re after, but this would allow you to see if the drive is working OK on an internal IDE connector.

A third possibility - though it’s less diagnostic - is to try a different computer with the drive still in the external case.

Here’s the steps I went through with the same external box, NEC drive, and software to determine it was, in my case, a media/burn speed problem:

  1. Authored using Ulead Video Studio, and selected option to burn to DVD and create hard drive image. Used Phillips DVD+RW media (RICOHJPNW11) at 4x, tested (using DVD InfoPro) and played flawlessly. Re-burned at 4x to another Phillips DVD+RW using Nero and hard drive image, tested and played flawlessly. Conclusion: Hard drive image is good.
  2. Foolishly burned three copies at 4x, same conditions, using Memorex DVD+R (CMC MAG.F01), tested OK, played with a bunch of skips, freezes, jerkiness. Dropped write speed to 2.4x, burned again, tested and played flawlessly. Conclusion: write speed problem with this combination.
  3. Swapped burner to internal IDE position, burned using Memorex DVD+R at 4x, tested OK, played with a bunch of skips, freezes, jerkiness. Reburned under same conditions at 2.4x, tested and played flawlessly.

Overall conclusion: MY NEC 2500A has problems burning CMC media at the 4x rated speed, but does OK at 2.4x. Other conclusions: Bytecc enclosure, NEC drive, and Nero combination has no problem compared to IDE, NEC drive, and Nero. DVD InfoPro may show no errors, even though resulting disc may have problems playing. Testing with other DVD+RW media has advantages from the authoring standpoint, but may not reveal problems that are media related.

David, RawHP first off thank you very much for your efforts into looking over the log file. I really aprreciate it. Against my Wife’s wishes (spending more money when there is a baby on the way) and my better judgement I went and bought all types of media. Works for every media under the sun +RW/-RW/+R except for -R. And I tried every speed 2x 4x 6x. You probably know this but this is a really nice drive.

Here is what I have lock it down to:

1 - Software: I used Nero for every media and speed and they all work except for the -R (of course the most prevailent type of media out there). Then I tried the “BackupAtOnce” freeware and the first few simulations didn’t go well since I was over the limit then I tried just a 1.5GB of data burn on a -R (WTH kinda thing at 1:00am) and it worked. Tried it a few more times and it was sketchy I’d say 50%.

2 - The USB box: I have read alot of info on the web and there seems to be some folks also experiencing the same problem with identical setup on the -R.

Since this problem has really kicked my rear :frowning: , I will be returning the drive (Which is silver to match the box) and getting a new 2500A (beige to match the Computer case - will be going internal). I really thank you guys for looking into this thing for me. :bow: :bow:

Regards,
Ton:bigsmile:


#11

A lot of people are having problems with these external boxes.

I don’t know if the box is at fault or not. It could be USB issues on the motherboard.

WHat chipset do you have?


#12

I just bought and installed an NEC 2500A today (beige internal version)
I also bought four 5 packs of Memorex 4X -R media on sale.

For my first foray into burning DVDs, I used DVDXCOPY Platinum.

I burned 3 DVDs that all play flawlessly both in my system and in my stand-alone Panasonic DVD player which is about 4 years old.

I already had both Alcohol 120 1.4.8.1222 and Nero 6.3.1.6 installed for burning CDs with my Liteon CD burner, but haven’t tried them for burning DVDs yet.

I don’t appear to have the coaster problem previous posters had with an NEC 2500A and -R media. Maybe it’s because I’m not using an external box with USB, or maybe it’s because I haven’t tried burning with Nero yet.

What brought me to the forum was reading that sometimes you can do a multisession and leave a DVD ‘open’, and sometimes you can’t.
What’s the determining factor?


#13

I just received my ND-2500A and I pitched in the extra $10 for the OEM Nero 6 so I could compare it to my existing copy of 5.5.9.9.

I started with the Nero 5.5.9.9 already installed on my machine just to check it out with the older version and I promptly received an error on the lead-in with my more expensive Phillips DVD+R 2x media. Then just for the heck of it, I tried a burn with a DVD+R from my less generic spindle and same thing, error on the lead-in.

Next, I installed Nero 6.0.something.something from my new OEM CD and again, three or four more coasters. I went to the download site, upgraded to 6.3 and . . . yep, you guessed it, another coaster each from my two types of media.

At this point, I’m very dejected thinking it’s “next stop - RMA hell” figuring three versions of Nero and two types of media must surely mean a bad burner.

Well, I took one more shot at it with the cheap media and Norton Ghost 2003. What do you know, a perfect 4.4 GB partition dump, verified and everything.

What the hey? Is Nero really to blame here? I mean, I did read the thread leading up to my post, but it’s just hard for me to imagine what’s going on when I’ve read reviews with Nero paired with this exact same burner that mentioned no problems.


#14

Go to the Ahead website, download Nero Cleantools and run it.
This will completely remove all previous Nero versions and registry entries from your PC.
Then install the new 6.X version, upgrade to the latest version (6.1.3.6 currently) and try again.

Or you could use RecordNow (My preference :bigsmile: ) to burn…


#15

Thanks for the reply. Sage advice there, wes, I didn’t even know about Cleantools, I’m going to try that out right now.

Now if that doesn’t work, “next stop - RecordNow!”

I remember way back when, RecordNow came bundled with my Sony CD-RW when 8x was top of the line speed. I always liked that software, too, it was the most lightweight and had the cleanest interface of all the software at the time - it put EZ CD 3 or 4 to shame - but I haven’t seen RecordNow for what I’m sure is quite a few versions since then . . .

Here’s the Nero error log if anyone cares to check it out, without fail, it’s failing (???) 1% into the lead in. The stupid thing about it is it insists on continuing with the 1GB write for maximum DVD compatibility after it’s already failed. :confused:

You were right on there, Wes.

I downloaded RecordNow Max 4.5 and it worked beautifully on the first attempt. Phew! Thank God I don’t have to deal with the RMA hassles!!!

That’s cool, too, that little seven note riff on the successful burn hasn’t changed, it brought back a little nostalgia from my very first successful burns way back when.

A couple of my mail messages were over the 128 character limit, which I’d never had a problem with as long as I relaxed the restrictions in Nero, but that’s a minor quibble. The actual lead up to the burn was way faster than Nero, and of course, actually making it past 1% in the lead-in is always a good thing.

One other thing about the RecordNow, or maybe it really isn’t supported by my 2500A - it wouldn’t allow a test simulation of the burn, it said the DVD-RW didn’t support that feature, but I find that hard to believe.

One last question (that might not be true actually, but . . . ) what’s the difference between Max and DX?

Thanks again for the help.

A bit of a recap from a post I added to a thread on the NEC forum, but I just wanted to see if anyone might have some comments over here.

I just bought a brand new NEC ND-2500A. I tried burning on Nero 5.5.9.9 with two different brands of DVD+R and it failed at 1% on the lead-in both times. I upgraded to Nero 6.0 and tried it, again two different types of media, two different failures at 1% on the lead in. I updated to 6.3.1.6 and again, two types of media, two failures at 1% on the lead-in.

At this point, with three different versions of Nero and two different types of media all failing, I’m preparing myself for an RMA nightmare, but just for the heck of it, I try Norton Ghost 2003 with the cheapie DVD+R and it works flawlessly! Now I’m starting to wonder if maybe it wasn’t Nero all along so I try downloading RecordNow Max 4.5 and what do you know? A flawless burn 100% verified.

I’m very happy now with my burner, but I’m very disappointed with having to abandon my old favorite in Nero. I was quite comfortable with version 5 for a long time, but that didn’t work with my ND-2500A, so I tried version 6 and really liked the new interface but again, nothing but coasters through both versions 6.0 and 6.3!

Get it together, Ahead.

Perhaps you should update recorders Firmware bios(if there is any update).
Also, do you have antivirus software enabled? Nero is affected alot by any kind of AV soft.


#19

Something else:If you have adaptec aspi installed, remove it cause Nero works better with its own ASPI(NeroASPI).
PS:Removing it will cause many other burning software(probably like symantecs one) to stop working.


#20

Good suggestions. I think the firmware is the latest at 1.06, although I came across one site listed here where they said they were working on their own third-party update to the firmware.

I’m not really sure where I would even find what my ASPI drivers are. What I do know is that it’s a new nForce2 based mobo and it’s a little different from every other mobo I’ve owned in that when you expand “IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers” in the Device Manager, instead of having the “Primary Controller” and then “Secondary Controller” listed individually, this nForce2 board has “NVIDIA nForce IDE Controller” as one single listing under “IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers” (for whatever that’s worth.)

The anti-virus is also an interesting possible cause. I may have to ghost the system as it’s working now with RecordNow and go back and see if that was the problem (can’t believe that thought never occured to me.)

Thanks for the reply!
