Error when trying to burn a DVD

vbimport

#1

Hi, my name is Phil. I’m new to this forum. I found it through google, while searching for solutions to my problem.

I have not had any problems burning DVD’s until a couple of days ago. Now I get an error message every time I try to burn DVD files. I have tried different files but I get the same results. I use Nero to burn. I tried a different program besides Nero but it still fails. It’s not even ruining my blanks, it seems to fail even before the burning begins. I have updated the driver of my DVD burner.
I was wondering if anyone has some idea about what this problem is?
I don’t remember adding any new hardware since I last burnt DVDs without any problems.

Below is the error message.

Thanks for any help or suggestions. I.A.

AHHH. Man.

Never mind. It’s these Sony DVD -R’s. WTF? I’ve used them with no problems before. I just had bought a new pack of them. Not sure what I will do with the 25 I bought.

My Ritek Ridata DVD-R have no problem. I just dont use those Ritek anymore. They are without a doubt the worst pieces of crap ever made. They burn just fine. I burnt over 100 movies with them. Problem is, none of those work any more. After a few months they stop reading in the DVD player. ANY dvd player. They even freeze up my DVD player. Plus they are not recognized anymore on my PC. Since that all happened, I’ve stuck with name brands. I guess no more Sony for me. Fuji has worked great in the past. I’ll probably buy some of them.


#3

8x -R Ritek (RITEK G05) has a widespread reputation for behaving just as you described, good initial burns but very poor stability in as short as a few months.


#4

BTW, your problem is not the media, but either the burn speed chosen or a lack of firmware support, almost certainly the latter is the primary blame. Install this firmware, then burn at 6x-8x - http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/download/en/2510a/219bt_fast.zip Do NOT burn 8x and 16x media at slow speeds, it will almost always yield poor results. Having said that, you probably tried at 2x only because the drive wouldn’t allow a higher speed because of its lack of firmware support. For 8x media, I generally would try 6-8x first, 16x media at 8-12x.

P.S. - your failed Sony burns, you may still be able to burn them depending on if the burner actually burned anything to them or not, so give them a try if you didn’t throw them out yet (you might not want to use those discs for important data though as the start of those discs may have something on them).

I’ve never flashed anything. Not familiar with all that. I did try it out. I downloaded _ NEC ND-2500A (ND-2100A,ND-2300A,ND-2510A)
Version 1.01 for DOS. Firmware flasher. When I click on it, the screen only comes up for less than a second and then is gone. Not sure what to do.


#6

Download BinFlash/NECwinflash here - http://binflash.cdfreaks.com/download/1/5 Extract the NECWinFlash.exe file inside the zip.

Then download the file I listed above http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/download/en/2510a/219bt_fast.zip

Extract the .bin file inside this .zip file.

Run NECWinFlash, push the ‘flash’ button, select the bin you extracted, and it will flash the firmware on your drive. It will tell you that youe need to restart the computer once it’s done.

Well, that was simple. Did it, and already burnt a sony disc at 8x, with no problems!

Thank you very much for the help! :bow:

Glad to help, enjoy your new and improved NEC. :smiley: It’s still a good drive with most 16x media at 6-8x with that firmware. Sony’s decent media, Verbatim’s very good media, either is usually a safe choice but Verbatim may be a brand to look for sale on next time you’re in need of media. There are a number of other decent options as well, though you might want to read up or ask before you buy under a certain brand. And BTW, if you want to run any tests on your burned discs to see if they’re decently burned or not, you can download Nero CD-DVD Speed and run a transfer rate test on your burned discs - a smooth test indicates a disc that’s readable without any slowing down, a good sign. A test with significant slowdowns or a failed test indicates a disc that stands a high chance of having playback problems.

I’ll try that out. Thanks for all the help.
