ASUS DRW-2014L1 - doesn't burn!

vbimport

#1

This problem follows me since I bought this new ASUS. I try to burn DVD’s or CD’s or whatever, and he burns like, 3 or 6% and then an error appears after 5 minutes of waiting and stuck in the 3%. The funny thing is, while using the Test mode, ir works sucessfully, but actually burning the DVD, nothing! The other funy thing is that SOMETIMES after I throw to thev garbage that DVD that was burnt by 3%, because its useless now, it lets me burning sucessfully the second time i try. But that only happens SOMETIMES. From 10 DVD’s, only 3 of them actually worked.

What the heck is happening here?!

This is what I have: http://www.directron.com/drw2014l1.html

These are the errors that appear:

This is my PC:

PLEASE help me!

Bah, what a confusion. I’m a dummie =|

I wish someone could help me with this problem, it’s driving me nuts!


#9

I haven’t had time to do much research on your drive - is it SATA or IDE?

Edit: OK, it seems to be IDE - can you check that Ultra DMA Mode is the Current Transfer Mode for all your drives - see the link in my sig. :slight_smile:

See, I don’t even know how to answer you that! I know THIS much of computers. How can I see which drive is mine?

EDIT: It’s IDE

Ok, my Primary and Secondary IDE Channels were DMA already.

@ EvilBliss,

Media MID CMC MagAM3 in many instances can be problematic Media with a wide variance in quality. Suggest obtaining known proven quality error free Media that consistently produces quality error free results such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media. Also suggest not burning your Media at Maximum Speed but select a speed slower than the Media rated speed.

bjkg

So, the problem is in the brand of the DVD’s? That sounds ridiculous. Now I have to throw away my whole 100 DVD’s I bought from another brand?


#15

[QUOTE=EvilBliss;2164990]Ok, my Primary and Secondary IDE Channels were DMA already.[/QUOTE]

Let me just double check: none of your IDE channels are in PIO Mode?

Regarding the CMC MAG. AM3 media: although I have different burners, it burns OK for me at 8x. Maybe try that before tossing them :slight_smile:


#16

[QUOTE=Arachne;2164996]Let me just double check: none of your IDE channels are in PIO Mode?[/QUOTE]

Nop


#17

That’s good. Chances are that it is the media then, or the burn speed at the very least. Try our suggestions of burning a little slower. :wink:


#18

How can I slow down the speed in ImgBurn?


#19

In the same window where you choose your file to be burned and/or your destination drive. Near the bottom right of the window. :slight_smile:

@ EvilBliss,

If you doubt that Media MID CMC MagAM3 in many instances can be poor quality problematic Media with a wide variance in quality then suggest performing a Forum Search on the topic ‘CMC Mag AM3’ and/or a Gooogle Search (http://www.google.com) on the topic ‘CMC Mag AM3’ and note the Search results.

If you look at your IMGBurn posted data you will see “Power Calibration Area Error” which in many instances is an indication that poor quality Media being used.

Also for the ASUS DRW-2014L1 Drive to function and operate correctly requires the use of a Ultra DMA (80-Conductor) IDE/ATA Cable (http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/if/ide/confCable80-c.html) and operate in the Ultra DMA Mode 4 – note specifically the “Ultra DMA Mode 4” not just in the DMA Mode.

Well that just sucks! Then why could I’ve burned 3 dvd’s sucessfully, from the million of tries that I did? Pure luck?
