Can't burn DVD images

vbimport

#1

Hello there.

I have this problem while trying to burn DVD images. I Can burn all sort of stuff ,data/cd images/mp3s/video etc , but whenever i try to burn a DVD image [ ISO image format] the DVD gets stuck in the drive after 3% [ in case of NERO] and writing doesn’t start after Lead-in in case of all the other burning softwares i’ve tried [ IMG burn , ashampoo , alcohol120% etc]. I’ve wasted lots of blanks due to this.

My burner is [B]LG GSA 4167B [/B] and Its shown as Secondary Master in the BIOS. Its the sole DVD/CD drive in my comp. [ Though the log i am posting here shows a few other which actually are not on comp. ].

  Drive is in the IDE 2 slot.

   I have tried to search all over the net but couldn't  come up with a solution. I am posting the Nero log below. Any help appreciated.

I asked this in your other thread - are you able to burn ‘regular’ data files onto DVDs, or is that also not working? And what kind of discs are these?


#3

Why the use of the 4x burning speed?

If this is the only speed offered then the problem is that the burners firmware doesn’t recognise the disks & so the chances of a successful burn are quite low.

This not a regular LG burner as the firmware versions don’t seem to match what’s available.


#4

That’s assuming that they are 8x or 16x discs. Again, what kind of discs are these npchhasatia? In addition to the brand and speed, you can find out the specific media code which will tell you who actually makes the media - download Nero CD-DVD Speed (it’s free) and insert a disc into your drive and click on the media info tab, it will list something like ‘RITEK R03’, ‘TYG02’, etc.


#5

they are standard moserbaer dvd-r and are capable for speeds up to 16x.I have successfully used them on same setup for years. I can burn data discs without any problem. It’s the DVD images that are headache. I am downloading the tool scoobie has mentioned and will paste the results soon.


#6

If you can burn data discs without problems, that’s certainly a good sign. What program are you using that is creating these .ISO files? I wouldn’t think that there would be any issue with an .ISO file though.

And BTW, burning most 16x media at 4x will yield poor results, try 8x or 12x for best results under most typical conditions with 16x media. And if possible, keep your drive’s firmware updated. TimC’s advice was appropriate for your 16x media, I wanted to find out what the media’s speed was before moving on though.

P.S. - I found the disc’s media code in your text although I knew what it would be after reading that it’s Moser Baer, didn’t see it before:

Disc Manufacturer: MBI 01 - RG40

Moser Baer/MBI is generally average to good media, but it’s not as commonly supported by drives as some media. Your LG may not have proper support for it, and if only 4x is available as a burn speed as TimC mentioned, then it does not have proper support. Having said that, if you can burn data DVDs then you should have no more difficulty in burning .ISO files.

One of the first things that anyone that’s having burning problems should do though is update their firmware, assuming that they haven’t yet done it.


#7

Firmware is up to date [ DL 13] and I reduced the speed to 4x because i tried all speeds starting from 16x and didn’t get any results.by the way i tried the nero utility mentioned by scoobie and it hung up at the first step and i had to restart the comp to get the disc out. Dunno whats happening.


#8

I’m not sure what the issue is, although your best chances of success will likely be around 8x or 12x if you can get anything to work. CD-DVD Speed shouldn’t cause any problems under normal use, it’s a very commonly used program so that is odd that it froze up. What program are you using again that is creating the .ISO files?


#9

its ultraISO. Its a backup of an old xbox game.
On a second note if i extract the image through ultra iso and burn the content as a normal data dvd , will my xbox recognize the dvd? [ By the way the xbox is modded so it can play back up dvds. I got it from Singapore]

Or it’ll recognize only if i burn the image?


#10

I was clearly looking at the wrong burner in the log when I mentioned about the firmware. :o


#11

I don’t know much about Xbox game backups so I can’t answer that, though I’m guessing that the data inside the .ISO is to be burned to the disc in such a way that you will likely have problems if you just extract the data and burn it.

I wonder if the .ISO file itself might be the problem. Download DVD Decrypter, http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/1011845169/1 , install it and copy one of your existing single layer DVDs (movie or data) as an .ISO image. In DVD Decrypter, select ‘mode - ISO - read’ and copy the disc as an ISO to the hard drive, then insert a blank disc and select ‘mode - ISO - write’ and burn that ISO to one of your discs at 8x. If that burns fine, I would look at your Xbox ISO as a likely source of the problems.


#12

thanks scoobie and all others! will try the dvd decrypter thing and post the results here.


#13

Yup, why would you use crappy Nero or Alcohol ofr images?

Use Imgburn instead.


#14

I’m pretty positive that would not work. You could copy the files off the disc to the hard drive and play the game that way, maybe.


#15

Try using magiciso to burn this dvd image, It may work out.
