Errorless Copying

#1

Hi all,

I have a genuine
LiteOn LTR 40125S burner FW ZS03
LiteOn 163D DVD

CloneCD is my disc to disc copier and Nero
my Hard drive and VCD and Audio CD compiler.

I upgraded firmware directly to
VS06 which turned it into a
48125W with Mt Rainier and P-CAV

Copied Medal Of Honor with CloneCD 4 beta 8
with no problems and then an audio cd copy
of an original pressed cd with CloneCD with
again no problems

Ran Nero 5.5.8.2 to burn files from
my hard drive totalling 700M at 48X
using RITEK blank (rated 48X by SmartBurn
info program)and with SmartBurn On
which was going fine until about 97% when
had a large speed drop and took a while too finish
and when ran Scandisk from Nero Tools
there appeared a large amount of errors
toward end of CD.

Tried a 2nd CD with different batch of files
with hard drive defragged as before with same
behaviour and result with an exe file from the CD
unuseable and some problems reading some files
on the CD.

1. I would like to prevent these errors so would
you advise the best fw to avoid errors at 48x

2. If errors unavoidable what fw for the 40125S
or 40125W gives errorless burning with Mt Rainier & P-CAV

[B]3. If Nero is to blame can it be tweaked to prevent the errors ?

4.What other software could be used that doesnt have this problem ?[/B]

Sorry for the long post.

What speed is the Ritek disc rated as? (Printed on the disc)

I have used VS02 and Ritek disc rated at 32x, burnt at 48x. The result was a perfect copy with zero errors.

VS06 wouldn’t let me burn the similar discs from the same spindle @48x. Burn was completed at 40x.

BTW, I use Nero 5.5.8.2.

Thanks Burnproof

The Disc is a disc with a label called
Circle Data CD-R80/24X

with a website

www.circledata.com.tw

The SmartBurn Tool from LiteOn reads

Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Phthalocyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 15s 17f
Norminal Capacity = 702.83MB (79m 59s 73f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = RiTEK,JS
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 48X

Will try VS02

Thanks Scott

You’re welcome.

However, it’s unlikely that the 24x disk will burn @48x without errors. Perhaps you can buy new media too, rated @32x or more.

Do you have DAO/96 enabled? For some reason, Nero doesn’t like DAO/96 on my LiteOn 40125, before or after I upgraded it to a 48125. I got the same results. When I switched to DAO or TAO, I had no problems. Since I only really nead DAO/96 when duping protections, and I used CloneCD for that (which has no problems), then I’m not too worried about it.

Dao96 was only introduced into nero fairly recently (about version 5.5.6.6 I think) and isn’t very good yet. Stick to dao or tao with nero unless you really have to use dao96.
