Communication Error Liteon SATA DVD

vbimport

#1

Recently I have been having problems with burning DVDs in Nero. Getting communication error messages. I had problems with an old LG IDE DVDRW so bought a new Liteon SATA DVDRW drive. I still get the same errors. Have tried Nero 6,7 and 8, all fail

The only things that have changed in my system are RAM upgrade from 1GB (2x 512MB) to 3GB (old RAM + 2x 1GB) and installing Sony Vegas Movie Studio and DVD Architect.

Any help would be great…

My PC Spec:
Asus A8N-SLI Premium motherboard
3GB RAM
Maxtor 250GB Sata HDD
AMD 4200 x64
Liteon DH-20A1L-09C

The log from Nero is:

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I would suggest two things to start with: removing nVidia’s IDE drivers, and using MS’s own instead.

I believe you can remove the IDE portion of the nVidia driver set in Control Panel -> Add/remove programs.

Also, reduce your burn speed to maybe 12x and see if that helps. :slight_smile:


#3

Welcome to CD Freaks x2. :slight_smile:

My first suggestion is to try to uninstall the nVidia SATA drivers from the system and try again. [Baiscally what madame Arachne said above].

My second suggestion is to try some better, slightly more reliable media. Verbatim-branded would be a good choice for troubleshooting. Or try dropping the speed as Arachne said above. :slight_smile:

My third suggestion is to try using ImgBurn to write, and see if it also runs into an error and, if so, post the log here [as it could give us an alternate view on what the problem is].


#4

Thanks for the info will try the drivers and the other program. Did try some other media (RITEK) that also failed.

Have tried reducing the speed but still get the same error. I tried to simulate a CD the first failed but the second worked. However the DVD simulate fails everytime.


#5

I’d definitely try removing the nVidia drivers, then. 98% of the time, the MS drivers do a better job (and don’t hide your DMA settings from you either!).

Edit: if two different drives (also different in interface) had the same problem, to me that’s an indicator that something’s wrong with the system/driver setup, rather than something wrong with the drive. Unless it’s really, really bad luck!


#6

If the above doesn’t work (try it first), then you might like to look at this thread.


#7

Have had a look in add/remove progs and the only thing under Nvidia Drivers is 1) nforce pci system management driver 2)Ethernet driver components.

Otherwise there is 3114 Sataraid5 that has GUI and Raid5 driver. If I uninstall them will it stop my SATA HDD working?

In device manager I have 2 nforce SATA controllers and 1 PATA

Cheers.

Right there is where most of your problems are in using a [U][B]Raid5 and Raid 5 driver[/B][/U] see if you can change it to
IDE compatible mode in the BIOS and no I don’t think it will affect your Hdd if you are only using 1 Hdd and you
will have to un-install the raid 5 driver. You will need the standard IDE driver for SATA IDE compatible mode. :iagree:


#9

This appeared when I enabled the Silicon SATA controller in BIOS. Cant find any option to change it to an IDE compatibility mode. RAID is disabled in the BIOS.


#10

mturbo23,
Is this 3114 on board your motherboard?
If it’s a PCI card then you would be better off flashing the BIOS to a BASE BIOS (non-raid).
Although the 3114 will work in non raid settings. Just not as well if BASE BIOS is used.
Even if the 3114 is on board you may well be able to flash that BIOS.

I went into device manager and updated the 2 nforce4 SATA controller drivers to the Microsoft ones and managed to burn a DVD successfully!

Think this has solved the problem.

Thanks for all the help :clap:. Will update if it works the next few times.

Cheers…

That is excellent, let’s hope so! :slight_smile:
