I’m experiencing a problem burning CD-Rs with my DW1640. When I try to burn an NRG image I get the Calibration Area Full after files have been cached. If I burn straight data, I get a Could Not Write EndTrack error. If I do a simulation write, it works fine; using Nero 188.8.131.52 and firmware BSJB on an XP Pro machine. I have had no problems burning DVDs, and this was my first CD-R I attempted to burn. Media tested was RiData 52x CD-R and Mitsui Gold 52x CD-R, so I doubt it’s a media issue since I tried Mitsui. Attempted burn speeds were 48x since that is the max capable speed on the 1640.
Machine Specs as follows:
Barton 2500+ @ 3200+
1GB DDR400 (KingMax)
WD1600JB as Primary Master
WD2500JB as Primary Slave
Pioneer DVR-109 as Secondary Master (UDMA Mode 4)
BenQ DW1640 as Secondary Slave (UDMA Mode 2)
Antec TrueBlue 480W PSU
Using the MS IDE drivers and not the nForce IDE drivers.
Edit: Just tried burning with my DVR-109 and I get the same erorr, so I guess it’s a software issue? I’ve been able to burn CD-Rs with no issues on the 109 with both media types. Any ideas what could have caused this and how to fix it?
