Elimination of the Paging File Produces Readable Burns on a 411s@811s

I’ve been having a lot of difficulty producing readable burns with my 411s@811s for the past month. Today, I realized that about the time I had re-enabled the paging file in Windows XP, was about the time my burns began going bad. I disabled the paging file and finally made a “good” burn on some RicohjpnR01 media.

I noticed that not many threads contain anything about paging files or memory problems and bad burns, and figured I’d post this.

I was also wondering if anyone has some suggestions about how to improve burn quality in any other way. My kprobe scans still turn out to be relatively bad in either case (with or without paging file), but at least I’m no longer consistently making coasters.

   -I'm also having difficulting posting kprobe scans in this thread, since I've never done so before. I've attached them, however. The first is a scan from an unreadable disk I created while having an active paging file (kprobe.png). The second is a scan from a readable disk without a paging file (paging file.png). 

Thanks

Specs:

Windows XP SP2
Nero 6.3.0.17
411s@811s HS0Q
RICOHJPN - R01 from Maxell
512 MB DDR

Your right, they’re pretty bad. Now try going back to HS0K, by using the 811S firmware on my site. Use the [thread=111725]EEPROM_Utility[/thread] to backup you EEPROM and also to reset the learnt media data, before you do another burn using HS0K.

Let us know how you get on…

I installed the suggested firmware and reset the EEPROM recording memory with your tool. I decided to burn one of the CMC MAG F01’s I had left, to see if you’re suggestions helped. I had burned about 20 of these and produced all coasters, then I got fed up and bought the ricohjpnr01’s that are shown above. Anway, this burn was unsuccessful and is unreadable/non verifiable at then very end of the disc. I performed a kprobe test and got the following results.

I’m going to burn another ricohjpnR01 later, and I’ll post those results as well, hopefully it won’t be another piece of garbage.

Thanks for your help.


what version of windoz? also how much ram do you have? and did you have the paging(swap) file on the same drive?

I’m running Windows XP SP2 with 512 MB DDR. I had the paging or swap file on my D drive, which is a slave to the master C drive where windows is located. I was burning data from the D drive (I know there is something that says only one drive can be be accessed at a time with IDE, and that may have been contributing to bad burns while I had the swap file). Should I be burning from a particular drive? Master or slave?

Thanks

I just finished a burn of the same data in my second post, the difference being on some RICOHJPN R01 media instead of CMC MAG F01. This disk is readable, but the end of the kprobe test isn’t so hot. It is better than the first two I’ve posted, possibly thanks to codeguy’s suggestions.


I´m not sure we are looking in the right direction…

Regarding paging file, there is a recent topic here
I don´t have any opinion how big your paging file should be or where you should “keep it”. :wink:

Tell us more about your setup;

  • what chipset are you on. There are known problem with VIA, SiS and nVidia.
  • at what kind of chipset-drivers are you running right now.
  • whats the make and speed of your HDD
  • what are the free “resources” (free mem. CPU usage) after XP SP2 loaded all the “juice”.

Easiest way to find out all this is to run Nero Info Tool and post the output saved with diskette symbol at top of app. Post with [QUOTE]´s

And more, I can´t see any information about what speed you burned those discs. Reason I´m asking this is; from my experience RICOHJPNR01 burn best at 6 or 8x speed on a healthy system. :cool:

Edit. BTW, did you use zebra mod for “upgrade” 411@811.

Sorry I haven’t been perfectly clear on my system’s specs.

I’ll attempt to give you a run down of what you asked for, as well as the NeroInfo tool information.

I do have an nVidia chipset (nforce 2), which I’ve heard causes problems. My mother board is an MSI k7N2 delta (Athlon XP 1.3 ghz). I have installed the unified drivers from the nvidia site, I think version 4.77. I just notice now that 5.10 is out.

In device manager, my IDE controller appears to be Nvidia Nforce MCP2, version 6.1.2600.0.

Master HDD: Samsung 20 gb 5400 rpm
Slave HDD: Western Digital 60 gb 5400 rpm

NeroInfo says I have ASPI 4.60 installed and in good condition, although in programs such as Kprobe and DVD Decryptor, it says I’m using SPTI.

As for my CPU usage during burns, it seems to be good. I’ve never specifically paid attention to it. Usually when burning at 4x, the device buffer on the burner is at 100-99%. If I attempt to burn at 8x, my system is a little delicate with the CPU usage, meaning if I leave it alone, everything seems fine, but if I run anything while burning, the buffer shoots down.

I have “upgraded” my 411s to an 811s with the zebra mod v4. Would you suggest “downgrading” since I don’t really use anything faster than 4x anyway?

Thanks for any help.

Not much we can do about your HW, to start with. But I´m not saying it´s okay.
IDE-cables are in good condition? Tried to temporary remove “unnamed” DVD-ROM drive?..

Edit. Ooh, forgot to ask; can you test to put source drive and burner on same IDE-chanel. Just for test.

  • Do also a nero CD/DVD Speed test. I´m sure you have seen those fancy graphs all around. Use a full burned DVD.

Try first with latest package of nForce drivers. I see you have some HW needing them. But preferably only IDE-drivers if possible.

SPTI/ASPI, you can change manually both in KProbe and DVD Decrypter.

Something to start with … :cool:

I’m not able to select ASPI in Kprobe, or DVD decryptor; they’re shaded out.

My IDE cables are in good shape, I bought some new ones last year when I purchased the 411s because I was having problems with it and it’s compatiblity with another DVD ROM drive (which was never resolved).

As for the unnamed DVDROM in my NeroInfo tools information, that’s a Daemon tools virtual drive, would it be wise to disable it? If so, would disabling it have the same effect as uninstalling it?

Regarding the test with the source drive and burner on the same IDE cable, are you recommending that I test with on HDD on the same cable as the burner? Since I can’t even get another CDROM drive to work on the same cable as this burner, I’m reluctant to do this (this was the problem I had when i purchased the burner that I eluded to above).


does nero tool report the nero aspi winaspi32dll 2.0.1.68 in the nero folder or just the roxio 4.60–4.71 and if it is the roxio are the the same version
Bruce

also i wouls kill any imange drives or any packet writing software
Bruce

ASPI. It seem to be some conflict with your “other” aspi (gear…)
Nowdays many say a working ASPI is not needed. Being a old linux user I for sure believe it´s needed, even on M$ XP. -your choice. :slight_smile:
:cool:ForceAspi

DVD-RW and HDD. Yes, I was of an other opinion for long time; putting a DVD-RW as master and HDD slave is no go. But some 8 months ago (when zebra modding) I “connected” wrong when in a hurry. (This on a PIII-733.) Didn´t noticed it first, but everything was running okay, I thought what the heck.
Never done anything better. System is runnig perfect. It does works for me, maybe not for others, or when on other chipset. (Currently on P4 2.8 and P4P800 asus). -your choice :wink:

Transferrate test looks good. That disc must be perfectly readable, me thinks.

I see you have more M$ thingys running in the background. Dissable what ever you don´t absolutely need when burning. (Yeah, firewall can be nice but M$ is worthless IMO.)

Virtual drive. Sure you don´t need to uninstall it. Only dissable the “autostart” in your tray.

Also dissable /uninstall the x-tra Nero “jukebox” (i.e. autostart, guides or whatever…)

More coming later.


NeroInfo reports that both Nero ASPI and the System ASPI are working properly, but doens’t report anything about folders. I don’t really understand what you’re asking.

I just noticed this gear aspi. I have no idea what that is, but I’m running a search on it and I’ll attempt to get rid of it.

What kind of microsoft things do you see that could cause problems? I see a lot of drivers, that are probably necessary. I don’t use Windows Firewall, but I do use Sygate.

Anyway, I’ll take a look at the gear aspi thing, make a burn, and get back.

Gear is a dvd burning driver,it come by its self and some prgg.also have it,ie dvdxcopy,the prbs you are having are perhaps a combo of many things try the sttickes in order, but i very much would remove any imange drives,and any incd, disc at once etc.also i find that after 300-400 burns the drive become unreliable and well with the price and speed changes we would change them anyway
Bruce

o disable windows burning

I disabled NeroCheck (which runs from start up, but what is it?) Incd and Daemon Tools. I do not have DVDXcopy, and doing a search for Gear ASPI didn’t turn up much on any other programs that it is included with. If I find an affiliate of Gear that I have installed, I’ll look into deleting it.

I burned another RICOHJPNR01 at 4x and retrieved another readable disk with so-so kprobe results towards the end of the disk. With Nero InfoTool, it appears as though this is an acceptable disk as well.

Next, I believe I’m going to install the new nForce Drivers (5.10). I currently have 4.27. This update appears to included IDE drivers with version 4.46 rather than 4.12. We’ll see if there are any improvement…


i would not install the 5.10 pkg. it prevents some people from burning
Bruce

I have also had paging file issues with burning. It does not give me bad burns but will cause a buffer underrun quit easily. Not so much anymore with my SATA drives but it will still happen. All you need to do is make sure that your paging file is not on the same drive that is accessing your files that you are burning. Because no matter how much ram you have if you have a paging file enabled at some point its going to access/write to it while your burning unless you have like multiple gigs of ram then maybe I would be wrong.

So if you have multiple HD’s put the paging file on a drive that you don’t have your burn data on. IF you only have ONE HD then disable your paging file if you have 512MB it will work just fine without a paging file with XP. At least I have never had any problems when I had to have it that way.

A suggestion for you. For myself (and several others on this forum), Kprobe does not work well at all at 4x on an 811s drive. You will achieve a much better looking Kprobe scan if you run it at 6x instead of 4x.
