Dvd+ Rw

Hey I’m sorry if someone already posted this but I did a search and got nothing.

I just built a new puter didn’t change the DVD drive, but the previous puter had DVD FAB working with out any problems I could burn + and - DVD’s, I load it on this new one and now I cannot burn movies on DVD + RW’s.

I thought maybe I needed to get a different brand but NO still not burning on DVD+'s.

It will copy on DVD-RW’s with no problems.

Is there anybody out there that would know why I’m having this problem?

Do you have Alcohol installed?

hey slap – i’m pretty new here too but see alot of questions and this is almost always answered with a request for more details, e.g. what’s you PC specs, burner details, what media are you using and probably most important can you post the logs (even if this is on a -R).

I’m sure people with more knowledge than me on these boards will be able to offer some pointers with this info.

Also and as above from TimC – if you have any other software loaded too – this could be causing some conflicts.

The more specific details you can post the quicker and more focused the answers.

All the best – asbac

I closed " Slaps other thread as it was exactly the same as this one. SLAP, Please read the rules of the forum, what you have done by posting the same problem in two threads is called crossposting. The other thread is closed as it had no replies so I left this open. :cop:

What kind of drive is it. We need more information to help you, what media etc, the specs of your DVD writer. etc.

A burn log or two would really help and give us most of the information Alan asked for in his post. Instructions for doing this are in the bottom link in my sig if needed.

Hey sorry for the double post,.

The burner is an Asus DRW-1608P as for doing a burn log I’m not sure how to do this. Oops I see a link I will try to get this for ya…

What I don’t understand is it worked before I change to the new hardware.

Asus Striker Extream
OCZ 6400 SLI Ready 4gigs
Intel 6700 Dual Core
BFG 8800 GTS OC (qty 2)

Here is a log from the 16th. Hope this helps I would start with a + disk and then have to remove and use a - disk…

i am no expert, but your burn logs do seem to indicate that your burn was not completed on either the dvd+r or the dvd-r disc. however you have indicated that you were using +rw and -rw disc.

7/16/2007 12:56:28 PM info Inserted media type : DVD+R
7/16/2007 2:59:57 PM info Inserted media type : DVD-R

at the end of the sessions there is no ‘write finished’ or ‘finalization’ such as at the end of my last back up.

7/17/2007 11:58:50 PM info Finalization Time 00:00:36 - Total completion time 00:08:18
7/17/2007 11:58:13 PM info Write finished in 00:07:41 - Finalization start here. Avg. burn rate 7.74

as reported by dvdfab your drive likes the -r and -rw but should be able to support your TYPE of media.

7/16/2007 12:16:01 PM info Compatible media types : DVD-R, DVD-RW Seq., DVD-RW RO, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, DL DVD+R, DL DVD-R

since you say you have tried other brands of media, the best advice i can give you is to do a clean unintall as provided here from StormJumper. and if that does not work update your firmware for your drive and post with the results.

thanks troy

Well do Thanks and I will report back

Try setting the “Write Type” to SAO in Common Settings–Write (yours is currently set to packet writing).
