Everything but burn dvd

Hey there yall,

Im having problems burning dvds. I can play cds and dvds and burn cds but its a no go burning dvds. Now i have burnt over a 100 easy with only the occasional probs. I cant remember doing any installs or anything like that before my problems started. Ive tried with all the dvd burning apps that I have and none work. Done all the un-install/re-installs of software and hardware. I know my burner is junk (matshita) but its worked till now. Anybody have anymore ideas? Thanks Rick

Hi,

could you please attempt to burn a disc with ImgBurn and post the log?

Michael

I just ordered a external drive this thing is giving me a headache! Not that i wouldnt like to get it figured out but I think ive exhausted everything. All that I can think of anyway. What sux is its still has extended warrenty with costco but before they go any further they want me to do a complete restore :frowning:

Exactly the same problem was described here:
http://www.techsupportforum.com/hardware-support/removable-media-drives/428927-matshita-bd-drive-wont-burn-dvds.html (no solution either).

My suggestions would be:

  • update chipset and especially IDE/Sata controller drivers.
  • try other media (like Verbatim)
  • prepare a bootable USB stick with a Live Linux (like Ubuntu) and see if there is the same problem. If it is, then it is a hardware failure.

To a T ! Same problem AND exactly the same drive!

Really does make me believe its the drive.

Id like to forward both that link, and one to this thread to Costco’s warrenty dept. I think its crazy to do a complete format of my system when I can just send them the drive to check out… They aint heard that LAST from me yet!!

And by the way I had tried different media. I have some Verbatim (double layer) that I use for making backups.

At this point, Im going to keep after Costco. I ordered from them totally for the fact that they extend the warrenty (to 2 years) for free.

And in the mean time I’ll use a new external drive.

Hope it gets here SOON!

Thanks for all the Help!

Please get rid of your virtual drive

VMXQLK RWPIZW5M7G1 SCSI CdRom Device [CD-ROM drive]

and see if things improve.

Michael

I have tried with and without it. Forgot it was on I been using it to watch movies that are in ISO.

Then try the drive with Linux, as suggested.
Get the Ubuntu CD image, burn to CD (use ImgBurn for that job), boot from the disc. Then insert an USB stick with at least 1 GB. Ubuntu comes with a utility that installs Ubuntu onto such an USB device.
Then boot from the USB stick and use Ubuntu’s built-in CD/DVD burning application in order to test your drive.

Before I forget, I want to thank you for all the time trying to help me :clap:

I installed Ubuntu to the USB stick and tried to burn a dvd. It was a no go.

But now I have something else (Ubuntu) to play with while waiting on my new burner.

I had to change some of the boot parameters to get Ubuntu to boot off the CD. But the USB stick boots fine with the default parameters. Only prob is when going back to windows I need to delete and re-add my bluetooth mouse to get it working.

Didnt mean to get off Topic but I really enjoyed my new OS.

Anywho I copyed the log from Brasero. Its kinda jumbled* but as you can see It returned errors.

Hi,[QUOTE=dukedempsey;2490737]
Before I forget, I want to thank you for all the time trying to help me :clap:[/quote]You’re very welcome :slight_smile:

I installed Ubuntu to the USB stick and tried to burn a dvd. It was a no go.

But now I have something else (Ubuntu) to play with while waiting on my new burner.
:slight_smile:

Didnt mean to get off Topic but I really enjoyed my new OS.
Hehe :slight_smile: Such a stick is very useful - Kind of Swiss Army Knife :wink:

Exactly the same error as in Windows. So this is clearly a hardware error.

Let’s hope your vendor accepts that to have your drive fixed under warranty.

Michael

I feel a little foolish for not checking this better, but I got the drive working.

Now let me say this, I had already used air to blow any possible dust out, but that wasnt the problem.

After folling a link to this place

There were multiple comments on how blowing or using the cd cleaner disks had got drives working. Well I looked again at mine and could see nothing till I got a bright light and a magnifing glass out. There looked to be a speckeled film on the lense. No way you could see it without magnifacation. While looking through the M.G. I blew air and nothing happened. So I took a Q-Tip with a lint free cloth over it and very gently wiped it. I could definatley see some of the spots wiped off. So I cleaned best I could and that did the trick. Im sure it will still need a better cleaning,
but Ive made several succsesful test runs and it all looks good.

I think we can mark this one solved

Michael, Thank you again for your time. You guys that help everyone are to be Commended!!!

Now though I have the problem of what to do with the return box Costco has on the way.

And as I was posting this UPS showed up with the new external drive.

Excellent :slight_smile: I didn’t think of dirt since the drive is rather new :o
