DVD Wont Burn!

Hello, I have a new computer running Vista. Im using DVDFab, it is copying fine, however not writing at all, I tried buring on 3-4 DVDs but they break down Midway, hence I destroyed atleast 4 DVDs, any words of Wisdom. The Media is DVDfab Verbatrim that I am using with a speak of 2X.

That is way to slow try 8x, also try ripping it to your hard drive first then burn it with Imgburn. I am guessing that these verbatim are SL(4.7gb) not DL(8.5gb) disks.

Download ImgBurn and use it as your burn engine
Here is a link to a youtube video on how to set up ImgBurn with DVDfab

http://www.youtube.com/user/dvdfabtroy?gl=CA&hl=en

Now if you posted more info about exactly how you are doing this movie I would give you more help but since you not this is what I give you.

This is the Error I get in the Error Log:
Write Failed: Write Error Occured at 448.5 percent of the write
Write Error at 837904 (16) - Code 05 21 02 (Illegal Request, Invalid Address for Write)
Lead-in Burning Time (ms) 2446

Any idea what it means the Computer is Brand New running vistas and the Optical Drive is Hitachi HDT721010SLA SCSI DISK Drive and it also says
ATAPI iHAS 120 6SCSI CdRom Device DVD/CD-Rom drives.

I dont know why it is not completing the Burn Operation, it starts the Burn operation and crashes midway and opens the door to the DVD thereby destroying the Burn Job.
Any words of wisdom

There really is very little helpful advice to offer based on your post.
Your statement,
"[I]Optical Drive is Hitachi HDT721010SLA SCSI DISK Drive[/I]"
doesn’t make any sense as it appears this is a HDD not an ODD.

This [I]“ATAPI iHAS 120 6SCSI” [/I] is probably a Liteon burner and should handle most modern media ( the verbatims you mentioned) and the faster speeds without much difficulty

The atapi error “Code 05 21 02” is ill-defined and probably indicates an unacceptable write strategy, ie., your burner and firmware are not happy with the blank media, but again, this is unclear as seen in your error message,
[I]“Write Error Occured at 448.5 percent of the write”[/I]
I’m thinking this isn’t an intentional overburn…:p…sorry, just some bad humor

As in your first thread 3 weeks ago, we need specifics to help you.
Please post the burn log…at least we can see what your media ID is and perhaps start to troubleshoot.
We don’t even know if this is DL media, but my assumption is yes since you had trouble with DL media in your previous thread.

The default location is:
[B]C:\Documents and Settings[I]Administrator Name[/I]\My Documents\DVDFab\Log[/B]

I believe you also tried Img last time, but if you’re not using Img, I’d give it another shot as suggested by GJ

Please post your system specs…manufacturer, model and any other pertinent info if you expect to receive meaningful help.

The devil’s in the details.

Any words of Wisdom appreciated.
Thx

No success with writing to DL.
I even tried Image Burn it scans and gets stuck at 66%.
Please Help.
Thx

Please Gurus out there, any Valuable advice for me please.
Thx

[quote=dolicus;2233739]Please Gurus out there, any Valuable advice for me please.
Thx[/quote]
you sure this is not a Rom drive ?

Please pardon my Ignorance, Could you pls suggest some more readings on this firmware, do I just download thats about it, or how do I assocaite the firmaware with the drive, is there a post online that will educate me on this issue step by step please. Again pardon me being naive. Thx

sorry that firmware you downloaded is older then what you already have and from the info that I found the firmware you do have is for a DVD/CD Rom drive :confused:

I’m still checking it out and will get back to you so don’t change the firmware just yet.

EDIT…the link below makes me wonder about your drive it shows your firmware 7L0E http://www.driversdown.com/drivers/Liteon-iHAS120-DVD-Firmware-7L0E-For-WinXP-Vista_86930.shtml

You are using the VSO burn engine do what i said in post #3 and try again

:iagree:

[QUOTE=StormJumper;2233752]you sure this is not a Rom drive ?[/QUOTE]
Nope SJ, this is a late model litey with the latest official LiteOn firmware.
SATA interface but I don’t know what’s going on with the scsi interface in his system.

I asked the OP to post his pc manufacturer, specs and such, but so far no dice.
We’re still blind and throwing darts, hoping to hit the target.

[QUOTE=dolicus;2233596]I even tried Image Burn it scans and gets stuck at 66%.

We see that you tried Img.
2.4X is too slow.

I have no idea what you mean by [I]Image Burn it [B]scans[/B] and gets stuck at 66%[/I]
Does this mean the disc actually burned (66% of the file) and then failed?

Are you able to burn SL (dvd5) media without problems?

Yes, we’re trying to help and you can try it again at 4X…but,
you need to post more detailed info as suggested.

The PC is from ZT Systems, from Zt Sytems, below is the information on the system. As said earlier it burns no problem to DVD5 Single Layer.
However have issues with the Dual Layer Burning only DVD9

Upon the Gurus Advice I even tried burning with Image Burn.
I tried with both, Verbatrim 2.4x and Memorex 8x, however both start as if they will burn the thing, the task bar even advances as if it will burn the whole DVD, However around 40-60% Burning, all of a sudden the door opens and the DVD Pops out saying the Burn Failed.
I have attached the log in the previous posts.

I’m having cable/power outage problems…sorry.
I was just posting to request the motherboard info and low and behold, there it is…thank you.

I’ll get back to you as my situation permits.
In the meantime, please try the following:

1). Rip the one of the movies to your hdd…just select a location on your hdd as [B]Target[/B] instead of your burner.
Please select [B].ISO [/B]as your format. This is the far right icon for [B]Target[/B].
(It looks like a dogeared page with a disc overlay).
When you’re done, close Fab.

2). Open Img and select the .ISO file that you just ripped and burn it to a DL verbatim at [B]4X[/B].
You will have to select a layer break in order for Img to burn this, but you should be familiar with this.
Choose a LB near 50/50…you can preview this with Img, but all the selections populated by Img should work.

You can also use Img build mode and this will create an .MDS file which contains the LB info for the burn. In either case, you have to tinker a bit and select the LB at some point, assuming you’re ripping with Fab.

3). Post the burn log

Thx Maineman for all your help and Guidance, I am sorry I am naive to this community and what you are saying is slightly went over my head, is there any suggested readings for me, I am still a Driver under training. Thx all for your input and your efforts in helping me.

“You will have to select a layer break in order for Img to burn this, but you should be familiar with this. Choose a LB near 50/50…you can preview this with Img, but all the selections populated by Img should work.”

I got everything except this part, can you some more hint or tutorial on the layer break stuff, it is little high tech for me. Please.

Thx in Advance
