Errors with LH-18A1P

vbimport

#1

My brother’s just got his new drive and he’s getting errors burning discs.
I’ve attached extracts from the Nero log files below. Please let me know if I need to post the complete logs. Is this likely to just be dodgy discs? I’ve told him to upgrade his firmware from GL0C to GL0F and experiment with Force Hyper Tuning and Online Hypertuning.

#2

I should mention that discs 2 and 3 were burnt at 8x, which is the maximum my brothers P3 933Mhz PC can comfortably handle.


#3

Ok. He’s updated to GL0F now.

I asked him to run a simulated Create Disc test in Nero CD-DVD Speed and then a real one. He said when he tried to do the real burn with the same disc that he’d used for the simulated one, he got this error, ‘Error! No additional sense information (000000)’, so he swapped the disc for another one and then it worked. Any idea what that’s all about?

I’ve told him to update Nero from v6.6.1.4 to v7.7.5.1 micro, after uninstalling and running the clean tools, so perhaps that will help.

He says the numbers stamped on the disc are “MAHN 07 JE 01074867 5” and the last 5 digits are different on each eg, 4753 6, 4755 5, 4873 5, if that means anything to anyone.

I’ve attached the images from the simulated and non-simulated tests.




#4

Crap media


#5

Buffer underruns at 8X on a Data Disc doesn’t look too healthy. Burning an image or video data will be even worse. Best limit the burn speed to 4X. Upgrading to Nero7 won’t help here, rather look into IDE drivers.


#6

Yeah, perhaps he’ll listen to me next time I suggest he buys his discs from somewhere reputable, rather than down the market :rolleyes:


#7

There doesn’t seem to be a buffer problem on the real burn, so I’m confused as to why there was such a problem with the simulation. It also seems strange that the burn speed increased to about 8x on the simulation, but stayed fixed at 6x on the real burn.

The log shows he’s got the latest v2.3 Intel Application Accelerator IDE drivers installed.


#8
  • I think if he’d burn an image with CD DVD Speed at 8X, you’ll see there’s a buffer problem from the graph.

  • The fact that it burned the second disc at 6X means that the drive deems the media isn’t good enough for 8X.

  • The IAA can cause trouble with optical drives, so he may want to uninstall it and see if this makes a difference for burning.


#9

Thanks for that Cressida. I’ll get him to uninstall the IAA and see if it helps.


#10

I have similar problems with CMC MAG M01… same drive.
Nero CD-DVD speed reports ‘no additional sense info’, while nero manages to burn the dvd, it’s barely readable.
I’d say crap media too, if it wasn’t for the fact that these dvds are sold as TDK DVD+R 16x (dark blue ones with an elliptical pattern), and they burn just fine in an ASUS drive…

#11

vto80,

can you burn other discs in the Liteon without any problems? If so, I can only guess that the drive just doesn’t like those discs, rather than that they’re crap, which would seem to be ruled out if they burn good in the ASUS.


#12

Get some verbatim media and burn it at 6 or 8x. Maybe 6x for now and see if you get problems. The LH18A1P should burn alright to verbatim 16x+R media at 8x or 6x.


#13

Yeah, I’ll definitely make sure he orders some Verbatim next. They’re all I’ve used for a couple of years now.

Since he’s upgraded to v7 of Nero, the log doesn’t mention the IAA drivers IdeBusDr.sys and IdeChnDr.sys anymore. In fact, it’s completely empty. I imagine that they’re still installed though and was wondering what’s the best way to check and uninstall them if so, as they don’t appear to be in the Add-Remove programs list.


#14

I just purchased the LH 18A1P BURNER and when I changed the firmware from GLOC to GLOF the burner died,would not play or recognise it had a disc in the tray.Took it back to the computer shop,he did,nt have a clue what was going on and the LITEON rep.
did,nt know either.Now I am frightened to upgrade the firmware of the replacement
burner in case I stuff this one.Does anyone have any ideas on this.Thanks

#15

lamptable, sounds like just a coincidence to me. I’ve flash my LiteOn drives so many times I’ve lost count. Also, many people here have flashed to GL0F without any problems. :wink:


#16

Hi there. Sorry to hijack the thread,

I’ve just spent a week making coffee coasters out of Verbatim DVD-R’s
(Batch - ZD9030-DVR-J474F)

I got a 50 disc slab and have only had 1 in 10 actually complete burning. The cheepie crap Tevion etc work no problems.

I need some settings advice to save some plastic.

I’m running XP Pro SP2 with Slysoft AnyDVD 5.9.6.1 running in the background and use CloneDVD2 2.8.5.1 to back-up normal single layer DVD movies.

I can back-up movies all day without problem. But as soon as I use the new Verbatim DVD-R’s… it $hits itself half way through the final burn process with the ‘bad media’ error.

Must also add the DVD’s in question have “16x certified” writen on them, what does this mean ?

Will they be compatable with my burner, which is a LiteOn LH-18A1P - DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM drive.

Is there a non-default speed I should be using, and how do I change this using cloneDVD2 ?

I also get a similar error using Nero7.

One more thing… (sorry, I’m trying to give as much info as relevant)

in AnyDVD the drive info states >

Summary for drive F: (AnyDVD 5.9.6.1)
Drive (Hardware) Region: 0 (not set!)

However the properties of the Lite-on burner indicate region 4, with 4 possible changes. Should I change it to region 4, even though it states it is on 4 (Australia ?)

I thought AnyDVD removes the region crap…Mmmm confused :frowning:

The DVD I’m trying to back-up is Matrix (original) locked (according to AnyDVD) to region 4

AnyDVD pops up an error stating that it’s unable to crack the CSS key etc etc. I have enabled the CSS region key archive. But it still doesn’t like it at all.

It says to set the drive region code to that of the disc. Why would you do that if you can only do it 4 times ???

I don’t think this relates to the burn Verbatim problem above, as that happens with any movie I try to back-up. But it is osmething than perplexes me.

Thanx 4 ur patience guru dudes :wink:

I can also do the above DVD speed test if you need to, and post logs etc if required.

Thanx again :slight_smile:


#17

You shouldn’t worry about region code stuff with a LiteOn drive anyway.
You can reset the region counter easily with KProbe’s integrated region setting tool or even LtnRPC. :slight_smile:


#18

My suggestion to the clone dvd thing is to use DVD shrink instead :stuck_out_tongue:

That way you make the image on the HDD and can use a nice program like IMGburn to write the file at your chosen speed.


#19

I just re-read the post. Wtf, CMC MAG AE1 actually burns great for me and I regard it as one of the better media available.

@ Original Poster: I suggested Verbatim, but AE1 is also very good. You have a liteon LH18A1P, I have two of these drives and they can do a quality scan.

Load up cdspeed again and go to disc quality. Set the speed to 4x or 8x for now and click the “advanced” tab near the lower right hand side of the screen. Tick the box that says jitter. click ok, then start the test. Save the result with the little “disc” picture up near the very top right hand side of cdspeed. Post the result here by clicking “manage attatchments” when you are posting. Add the pic.

This way we can tell how bad the disc is burning in your writer and what more you can do in terms of writing speeds and whatnot. Sorry to not give this information in my original post! :doh:
