Convert X to DVD3 question

vbimport

#1

One question. I know from previous experience that my burner works best at 4x speed. No matter how low I set the speed (4, 2.4, or1x) it will not burn any slower than 6x which gives me occasional burn (calibration) errors.
I’m using Verbatim 16x DVD-R media. Is ConvertX not able to burn 16x media slower than 6x or is there something I can change, or do I need different blanks.

Your media isn’t rated for a speed that low. Is your firmware up to date? A quality burner with that media should burn at 12X or higher with no problems.


#3

HP940d burner is up to date and in ultra DMA 2 mode. Could something else cause the calibration error?

#4

Did my error log come through? Is there some other reason why I’m getting these calibration errors. I’ve tried Verbatim, Imation and Fuji media.


#5

Time to clean the drive…


#6

OK! I’ve tried the canned air thing so do I need to pull it apart and go with IPA? Will that FINALLY fix the problem that Nero and ConvertX couldn’t help me with. At least it will be a less expensive try than all all the rest!


#7

Does it work now?
