Hi guys, I’ve got a pack of 90min (“extra long”) CD-R that I used to sometimes use for burning VCD’s back in the day before I had a DVD burner. I’ve just tryed burning two of these (with my current pioneer 108 drive) and both burnt the first 90% ok and then suddenly aborted with an “illegal logical block address” error in Nero.
Since various things have changed since I last used these discs (it’s been a while) I’m thinking it could be one of several reasons. Number one suspect is that I’ve changed my burner, I know I’ve previously burnt them without problems on several of my old liteon drives but I don’t think I’ve tried them before on my current Pioneer 108.
Suspect number two is that I always used to burn them with nero5 but now I’m running nero6. Surely that wouldn’t be the problem would it. I would have expect the later version to have better compatability not worse, but who knows.
The final suspect is that mabye the media has just degraded as it has been sitting on the shelf for a while. Still it seems unlikely because the media seems to burn absolutely perfectly up to the point were the failure occurs. And it occurs at exactly the same point on both of the discs I attempted.
Does anyone know what the culprit is here. I guess the most likely is the new burner.
