Can't burn dvdr's

My HP burner was not working anymore (media showed up that it could only be burning at 8x vs 16x where it should be), and it was about that time.

I bought a new LITE-ON burner: DVDRW SHW-160P6S and installed the nero that came with this device. I also installed another copy of windows on another drive. Just to be sure it was the burner and not a windows problem. I am still unable to burn dvds though. I did not usually select to verify my dvd with the HP because they were always fine, but since the LITE-ON was new I have been selecting it. I get many bad sectors and I have wasted about a dozen dvdr’s now. Oh, and these problems are still occuring with the slowest burn speed possible (6x). I was doing them at 16x before!

Any suggestions on what could be an issue?

Many seem to be including error logs. I think this is my error log…

Oh, also this burner takes a looooong time to begin. My HP would begin burning in about 5 seconds. This one is now taking 90-150 seconds before it even begins. (what’s up with that?)

Try updating the firmware for your drive or try a different brand of media. Your log shows “medium error” which usually means your drive doesn’t recognize the media you are using.
Take Nero off verify burn. It looks like the burn has been completed sucsessfuly at 12X but will not verify. have you tried to read the burned disk?

No I haven’t bothered to read them. I just nuke them if the say they didn’t work, and throw in the garbage. If it doesn’t like the media I have to get a new burner…another new one. That is a joke to me. These Sony dvdr’s worked great in the other burner. I checked this last night and it said it had the latest firmware.

I can’t upload this file it’s too big, but this is the name of the zipped file: DR16PS0A.zip and this is the exe file inside: PS0A.EXE.

I saw the medium error.

Can someone recommend a good burner from these options? (the HP isn’t available anymore…maybe I could search for this same drive some where else) NANOSYS

Ehhh! I forgot Thanks for replying and assistance!

Also try turning off disc at once. Even though your burn finishes sucessfully, more than likely your burner is getting ahead of the info that it is receiving which can cause similar verification errors.

Instead of the Sony 16x-R you are using, try Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden discs. If you are in the States the Verbatim 25pks are on sale at Best buy for $6.99.

I’ll buy a set of them today and try them. I like the sonys because of the glossy surface. (weird huh?) The verbatim and others have a matte silver.

It’s “burn at once” to finalize a dvd? Will these still work in DVD players for movies if they aren’t finalized? I always thought CDs must have this to be playable in cars, etc.

thanks

It will finalize as long as it’s not set for a multisession burn.

Ok, I am confused. What is “burn at once” for?

To save time, but for the most part it doesn’t work well. Your burner starts burning the data/video before the files are completed processing, and most systems can’t keep feeding the info to the burner continuously, therefore the burner has to pause and wait.

Huh…do you need to a have a RAID ( 0 ) to be able to do this?

Ok, trying that and changed the drive for it’s cache to the SATA drive, and manually set other buffer to the max of 80mb. I never went into the “configure” tab/location before. :eek:

Well Wobble, and jhtalisman that seems to have worked I will try a few more to be in the clear I think.

Do most verify their burns?

Most use CD-DVD Speed (located in Nero Tookit). There are newer versions available on this site. Don’t get rid of your drive, the SHW-160P6S is a very good drive.

Use it for what? Do you mean verify? I meant do most people check the box to verify what they burned. It seems to take 5 minutes to burn, and 15 to verify it. I would think reading is faster than burning but …I don’t know.

The verbatim seems to work so now I just have about 130 Sony dvdrs that will collect dust! Major bummer. :a


I never verify after burning. Seems like a waisted step to me, but I do usually use CD DVD Speed to check for read errors and the quality of the burn.
Check out this link to learn the ins and out of using CD DVD Speed. It is located in the Blank Media Forum.
