Benq 1655 / ImgBurn Stuck On Synchronising Cache

vbimport

#1

I just installed ImgBurn 1.3 on a newly bullt system. ImgBurn detects the drive. I do not have Qsuite installed so I used ImgBurn to set overspeed [ temp ], solidburn [ temp].

I am trying to burn a 4.3 GB Iso file with verify on. It starts fine and finishes in a little over 6 minutes > clears both caches > and then just hangs on Synchronising Cache … its 25 minutes now and still stuck at Synchronising Cache

I am using TYG02

Any ideas

You should know the rules now about cross posting like this.


#4

After 30 some minutes I aborted the burn but the Iso seems to play fine on two different drives, the Benq and Sony 510a

I did a Quality scan and it scored 95 but I usualy get 97 - 98 with this media

What do you think, is the disc ok or should I reburn once I figure out the reason Imgburn stuck on synchonising cache


#5

I have no idea if I have a problem with the drive or software hence the title and seperate posts


#6

I would guess it’s just a glitch in ImgBurn and/or your system. You can try restarting your PC and try a burn with ImgBurn again.

Edit: The firmware BCAB is quite old. I would suggest updating to BCFB or BCHB.


#7

But it is against the rules you signed up to when you joined. This multi posting creates unnecessary work. You will still get a reply to your other post. If you can’t abide by the rules then perhaps you should seek advice elsewhere.


#8

Thats all you think it is …

Is there anything out of the ordinary on the quality scan I posted?

Thanks :slight_smile:

[/QUOTE]
It’s rather high on the PIE, especially towards the end but still within acceptable limits.
I’d probably keep the DVD rather than dumping it & doing another.

Have you tried any other media with this burner?


#10

Even though the BenQ may well be capable of it, why don’t you burn the media at it’s rated speed?! You’re doing double at it and are still wondering why the drive is having trouble as it reaches the end.


#11

To answer both the questions …

Since I got this drive all I ever used was TYG02 from Rima. I posted about it here where you can see some results http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=163605

As I said this is a new system setup. I do not have Qsuite installed so I used ImgBurn 1.3 to turn drive options on and off. I did not burn at 16x, I set ImgBurn to Max with overburn enabled [ from Imgburn ] and the fastest the burning was at 12x and that was only for a few seconds from what I saw

LIGHTNING UK, any idea why the drive stuck on synchonising cache with Imgburn

Opteron 165
Dfi Ultra -d
new xp sp2 install

Hmm, that reminds me, do I need to install an ASPI layer like we used to have to


#12

Your drive seems to claim 16x is available on that media, so ‘Max’ would be 16x.

ImgBurn polls the drive every second whilst it’s doing the sync cache thing to see if it’s finished. Yours is never finishing. This is not ImgBurn’s problem, as that stage is performed by the drive itself - as a kind of background task.

No you don’t need ASPI - unless you have old programs that specifically require it of course.


#13

at this point, you’re tweaking drive setting then wondering why the program is giving you issues.

first off, i’d recommend not using the “max” setting precisely because of the confusion that was already caused in this thread. always set the speed to whatever speed you intend to burn at!

as far as your issue goes, why don’t you give a try burning at the rated speed of the media and see if ImgBurn still locks up. then you’ll really be able to tell if it’s the program or one of your settings.

I’ve overspeeded YUDEN000T02’s at 12x before in ImgBurn with very nive results on my 1655, but 16x was pushing it and caused not only a poor burn but just weird program performance as well.


#14

i just tried to replicate this. the only difference was the firmware and the fact that I burned at 12x instead of “max”. i normally make my drive settings in qsuite, but i changed them in imgBurn this time to see if that might have been an issue.

I’ve had no problems with BCHB f/w, but some have. updating to F or G if you don’t like H is probably recommended.

i attached my ImgBurn log. disc quality scan on the way…

not sure why my PIE was so high on the quality scan but other than that nothing to really be concerned about.
i’d definitely recommend updating your firmware and see if that makes a difference…
