You should never buy a RitekD01 again.
Buy a good old Verbatim DL MKM01 next time.

PS : And burn your DL with DVDDecrypter if you want layer break optimization.


#3

So just set to burn another on of these Disks with DVD decrypter and it will burn fine this time?

is this correct?


#4

No. Get Verbatim DVD+DL, THEN burn with DVD Decrypter, Ritek +DL is garbage, havent burnt any Ritek +DL myself, but seen plenty of people complaining about them.

I’ll stick the Verbatim DVD+DL, actually just picked up 10 here in Australia for $ 7.00 a piece, less than I have seen Riteks advertised for.


#5

All my Traxdata DVD+R9 (Ritek D01) burns on the 3520 and 3540 are great. Traxdata is the only brand that has good Ritek D01 disc. No problems at the layer break and good transfer rates and quality scans. So first try it yourself before having an opinion…


#6

Whats wrong with all the others, crap?


#7

Hello all.

I’m new to this forum.

I am having trouble with my NEC 3540A and DVD+R DL discs.

It is in the slave positon in my computer, has the latest Liggy (1.WB) firmware and all the necessary Windows 7 IDE drivers. It appears fine in my task manager, with no issues detected. It reads and writes every type of disc that it is supposed to up to DVD+/-R. It did have problems with some unbranded DVD-R the other day, but as it was a power calibration error I put it down to the cheapness of the discs rather than the drive.

I have also used it in the past to write dual/double layer discs.

Now, it wont even recognise them. It buzzes for a bit when you put it in, and then nothing registers on the pc. Tried using IMGburn to see it, and tried all the discs in the cake. The discs are Traxdata 8.5gb double layer 8x ‘certified’.

What could be the problem, and what are possible solutions to this issue? I’m pretty sure it should work…and Traxdata aren’t a particularly crappy brand. I keep feeling it must be a software problem…but hopefully someone here can help more. I can provide any other information if necessary.

Thanks very much in advance.

Ed

The drive is nearly 6 years old from release.

You can buy a brand new DVD burner for £18 which will be a considerably better burner at DVD DL, I would say buy a 2010 model LG, Pioneer or Optiarc drive and just chuck the 3540 out in the bin…


#9

Would they have any compatibility issues with my system? I am still running a Dell 8300 with a stock motherboard.


#10

No compatibility issues whatsoever, as long as you buy another IDE you will be fine to swap the drive over (just make sure you get the jumpers right on the drive).


#11

Also, is there a danger that it isn’t the drive but a problem on my system? If so, I’ve just spent £18 for nothing.

I have just noticed that I actually joined this site 5 years ago at which time I posted a hello message. Since then I am afraid two degrees have left me even poorer!

[QUOTE=Anthony1uk;2553055]No compatibility issues whatsoever, as long as you buy another IDE you will be fine to swap the drive over (just make sure you get the jumpers right on the drive).[/QUOTE]

Thank you for the advice. I will probably swap it and put the new one in the ‘Master’ position, as the FAQ seems to suggest this is preferable. The drive that is there now is even older than my NEC - it came with the 8300 when I bought it!

What brand of DL? Probably the only ones that will work properly are Verbatim 2.4X

Personally I cannot think of any system/motherboard problems that would cause a DVD drive to recognise DVD+/-R SL disks, but not Dual layer.

Plus really for drives made this long ago you will get bad burns on all but Verbatim Dual layer disks.

And really I don’t know about your financial circumstances but I would personally classify £18 for a computer part upgrade almost throwaway money (It would not bother me for that cost if I upgraded to the latest drive and found the 3540 was not faulty - which I think it is though).

As a further suggestion if the other drive is even older I would say to also buy two of the latest and best performing drives and get rid of both the NEC’s you have now.

I would say a Pioneer and a LG would suite you well and set you back around £35.

Finally the master slave issue wouldn’t cause the problems you have either so its not that.

Thank you. I was considering either the Pioneer or the Samsung Sh-S222L listed on Overclockers: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/productlist.php?groupid=701&catid=10&subid=185

One final question, for which I thank you for your patience. Would it be worth my while (considering I do plan to upgrade to a newer and more capable machine in the future, preferably put together by myself or under my direction) buying two SATA drives, and using SATA to IDE converters as a stopgap measure, and to ‘futureproof’ them? Is that even possible? I note that the performance is apparently not that much different, but a new motherboard is unlikely to support IDE…?


#16

[QUOTE=Whappo;2553064]What brand of DL? Probably the only ones that will work properly are Verbatim 2.4X[/QUOTE]

‘Traxdata’ 8x. The label says in very small letters ‘Ritek’. Still a bad make?

It seems my problems would be solved with new drives however…


#17

Buy Verbatim brand DL media. Preferably the slower 2.4x-6x MKM001 variety for a burner as old as yours. Whappo gave you good advice.


#18

[QUOTE=Kerry56;2553069]Buy Verbatim brand DL media. Preferably the slower 2.4x-6x MKM001 variety for a burner as old as yours. Whappo gave you good advice.[/QUOTE]

Yes I agree it seems from wider reading that it is good advice. I’ve had a look though, and Verbatim 2.4x media is beginning to be less widely available, and is priced at roughly £10 for 5 (in jewel cases). Assuming they become even less available, it also seems to be good advice to upgrade my drives as the upgrade would probably pay for itself in the long run.

I’ve been really pleased with the response on here though, so thank you for helping.

Do you have any advice on the SATA to IDE issue? I’m leaning towards IDE, because I’ve come to the conclusion that if I can afford a shiny new pc, I’ll probably also be able to afford new drives if necessary!


#19

That depends if you are buying an IDE interface drive just for your current computer as a direct replacement for this NEC, or if you intend to use it in something newer down the line. Many new computers have no IDE interface connections at all on the motherboard, especially those from the big OEM companies like Dell and HP.

And many of the best modern dvd drives are SATA interface. It is getting harder to find good ones for IDE/PATA.


#20

I think I will go with IDE. I am not planning on replacing the pc for another couple of years ish, and for now the cost of buying converters is more than I can afford. By then I expect I’ll get a Bluray or another newer type of technology anyway.

Again, many thanks for the advice.
