DW1620 and TYG02 Always fails data verification

Hi, I have a Benq DW1620 pro with B7W9 firmware. I use TY 8x DVD-Rs (from supermediastore), and whenever I do a software data verify post-burn (Roxio, Nero, Sonic), it always fails. I’ve tried no multi-session, turning off WSOP, writing at 4x/8x/12x, and not filling the entire disc with files. It happens if I write pictures, video files, et al. But when I burn an ISO with Imgburn, the verify almost always passes. Should I try DVD+Rs instead? Or maybe it’s bad RAM? I really don’t know.

My recent 12x data burn:

One of the facts that came out when I researched this drive, was that it didn’t like -R media. A fact I have also found out myself, by foolishly believing that they had fixed this with the later firmware.

Yeah, I’ve decided to just order some T02s from rima. A friend is also sending me some spare RAM. I only hesitant because I already ordered some new TY02s, and I’m not sure my old PS2 v.4 can handle +Rs. (I’ve heard conflicting reports) Still unsure if this will remedy the problem though.

If anyone has more insight on this verify issue, much appreciated.

Verify feature in these programs is not too reliable, it often fails even with a good media (especially in Nero :doh:).
You should test your media in Nero CD DVD Speed with its Transfer rate test or ScanDisc feature.

The reason why it bothers me is because I use CloneDVD2 to split videos, and I keep getting short “pauses” during playback. I went to their website, it’s apparently a common burner/media issue. I’ve tried a couple diagnostic tests, and it usually passes. I have noticed that during the write process, the speed can vary by a lot. It’ll go from say 2.4x to 6x to 12x to 3x sometimes.

@pepst. :iagree:

Early BenQ’s burners are just plain Philips/Nexperia +DVDRW drives (BenQ DW1620 included) they will fare best with plus (+) media.

But when it comes to data verification MD5 hush , or any other CRC software should be used.
(note, Mocosoft softwares are not present on my burning boxes anymore, except for verifying quality, llike the CD/DVD Speed)
If movie is skipping then get other media, like Yuden +Rs or Verbatim MCC-004.

Happy burnning Kirosia :slight_smile:

Yep, T02’s are already on the way here. I hope it fixes the problem, I used to use Verbatims +Rs, but I don’t remember if I enabled software verify. I actually bought my drive approx. 3 years ago, so it may be what you said.

Is it possible that this only affects my created DVDs, not my data discs? I don’t recall the video files on them freezing that way.

[Never seen a movie disc or data disc being burned different… as they per se use the same standard…]

Damn. There’s no way I can back and acquire all those now-burnt files. Still, it only seemed to happen when using clonedvd2 to convert and burn movie files. Yeah, I know, I’m trying to lie to myself.
