Error writing at the end of the copy

I made an update of firmware from a 401s to an 411s, i bought the memorex dvd-r printable and they burn perfectly at 4x (their max speed), the thing is, i can not complete a sucefull burn,at the end i get an error message and the copy are not completed.I´ve already update de firmware to an 811s and the problem keeps going on…The only copy that i could make with this dvd´s were only one,and for coincidence or not the copy only had 3.5Gb of needed space…please help me…

can you post the media code for the discs using http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/
and what burning software are you using?

I´m using dvd shrink and dvd fab and it happends with both of them.

can`t comment on dvd fab, save your dvd shrink image as iso then burn with dvd decripter (the latest shrink has this option) or burn the iso with record now dx its on the sonic disc that comes with the burner.

Is this what you asked for ??

yes thats it basicly whats writen on the face is the brand ie:memorex
the media code is its birth certificate and in your case they are made by cmc and are the cmcmagaf1 veriaty, they shouldnt fail writing the lead out unless youve got a bad tub have a look in the media forum and see what results others have got.

also what f/w are you using on your 401@811? i recomend you try HSOK

I update the firmware by the informations that was is this web page : http://www.xs4all.nl/~wcprins/401at411.htm, there is any other best firmware that the one which is on this site??

in your original post you said you updated 401@411 then later in same post you say 811, how is your drive recognised by dvd identifier?

It is recognised as a LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-811S [FW HS0K],like the one you post here.

thats fine now try your 811s with eather dvd decripter or recordnow dx with some decent +R media ie: ricohjpnr01, taiyo yuden, mcc.

also a good tip even on good media when backing up films with dvdshrink ect i set the discs size to 4.3gb not defalt 4.4gb.

Ok,I´ve done my homework, and the result was this :

Unfortunatly i don´t have more memorex to burn, to test the results, but i will try to get one more to see what happends.

the TTG01s are not included in 811s firmware so they will burn at 2X using the defalt strat, as you have no more of these then it isent a problem if you can stick with decent + discs.
