BTC DRW 1060IM problems (cannot burn)

Hi there,

i’ve buyed this burner from eBay…

with the original FW it cannot read my DVD+R empty or not…
Upgradet the A07R… after this it has read my self burned DVD+R (with a BenQ Burner).

But it has big Problems with other DVD+R and it cannot burn…
My DVD+R 4x worked 1 time… 100% burning… but… the DVD+R was empty…
and cannot read after burining…

I burned a DVD+RW from intenso with 1.5GB… it worked… i tryed to delet the RW… after that… the DVD+RW was unreadable…

My DVD+R are marked as OTC+R84344N0 OR4

I also tryed to use TKD DVD+R 1-8x 4,7GB DVD+R47MEc…
cannot burn because Burner cannot read the DVD…
The same Problem ith TDK 1-16x 4,7GB (DVD+E47MED)

Any ideas ?!?!
Is the Burner maybe permanently damaged?

Regards from Germany, Berlin

SORRY! i mean 1016IM !

Can you try some “-R” media? What about some CD-R media? Do you know if the drive is in PIO mode or DMA?

Its UDMA 4… it was fallback to Pio and then Multiword DMA 2. But now its UDMA 4.
I tryed a DVD-R ! cant read the disc…
(the burner can read +R,-R,+R DL and -/+ RW …)

CD-R Burned can be read… i have no empty CD-R. CD-R not from interest for me :wink:

You could try the new released A082 firmware. What burning software do you use?

CD-R can be read!
Buring… dont know i try it soon… have to find small files to burn :wink:

DVD -R also cant be read…
A082 ?.. oh i c…@ the BTC website… i try…
same problem…

i think it’s a hardware problem…
hmm dont know what i can do… pull it away and buy a new one?..
(i think the better Topic is… BTC DRW 1016IM can’t read empty DVDs(+/-R /RW))

Well there is nothing to read on an empty disc. What software do you use for trying to burn? Is it Nero? Can you use something like DVDinfopro to verify if the drive is detecting media?

not true!
infos about book type and so are readable!!
Detecting MEdia??? normal DVDs workung (already burned DVDs…)
only empty DVDs. cant be read…
DVDinfopro ?.. whats that… ok i try google…
(btw… i have use some disk form the compatibility list)

After 1minute waiting für MEdia Information with DVDinroPro i get these Message
(btw. for buring i use nero)

since 4 minutes the Burner is trying to access the Medium and get MEdium infos… nothing habbend… searching and searching but cant find infos(read from the Disc)

ive tryed to burn a CD-R

So Burning wirks with CD-R

The Problem is…
Burning/Reading empty DVD dosnt work (ok 1% it works…99% not)
