Imgburn verify error

on one disc, with imgburn (v2.4.4.0) set as the writer for dvdfab (v5.2.3.2) AND writing to +RDL discs, verify fails with a “track 1 is smaller on disc than it is …”.
disc’s will not play in toshiba or panasonic players, but will play on the pc with vlc. (i have not tested the copy on a sl disc as i wanted it uncompressed.)

this verify error has never happened with single-layer discs.

what little i can find on this error points to the drive or the media. the drive has worked flawlessly in all other operations. the media is branded office depot and memorex and i believe is all ritek. i have not tried a different brand of dl media.

does anyone have a different reason or solution?

thanks.

Let’s start with the media and go from there.

You can download a freebie from the web called DVDIdentifier. Among things it’ll do is provide you with the media I.D. We use this frequently to figure out just who made what branded DVD.

The Office Depot and Maxell DVDs may in fact be Ritek, or maybe someone else. DVDIdentifier will confirm this.

Either way, for D/L DVDs, a bad choice. The only brand we recommend for D/L writes is Verbatim. It’s the only brand we’ve found will give you consistently good results.

Change brands, try again, and let us know (either way) how it goes.

this brings up a question from local conversation - is verbatim actually a disc manufacturer? or do they re-brand? not that it is important, but it has come up when discussing product quality.

Verbatim does manufacture their own, but demand for their product is such that they’ve been forced to farm out to others to make up their volume short-falls.

If you happen across any India made Verbatim, be leery…they’re not quite up to usual Verbatim standards. I also suspect they’ve made an issue of that very problem, and it may not last very long (the sub-standard quality, that is…).

The error you mentioned in your first post is one I usually only see with people converting to ISO files.

Is this what you are doing?

please post a burn log

my documents/dvdfab/logs

imgburn help / imgburn logs

obtained some verbatim +rdl discs. the first one went through all the motions but only wrote out the lead-in. i didn’t catch the log because at that time i thought the logs were being written to the users application data directory. now i know that when called from dvdfab, imgburn logs are written to the dvdfab log directory.

the second attempt succeeded. however, i see some messages in the log that i have not seen before. notably the waiting for buffers to recover.

I 13:03:27 Write Speed:[B] MAX[/B]
Try setting the correct write speed you are currently set to MAX which will burn at a faster rate then write strategy of the disc

I would change the size of the buffer to a larger number (depending on your system) to maybe like 128+ Mb. I keep mine set at 192 Mb.

Do this by Tools>Settings>I/O, and move the slide to a larger number, 20Mb is a very small buffer at almost any speed .

The disc being a DL should not pose a problem with the write speed at max since it will only burn with your burner at 2.4x which it would be set at anyway. Now with SL media the max write speed could cause problems.

i went through the “dvdfab with imgburn” setup guide and made those adjustments. however, i have two questions about write speed.

when you set the write speed (to get to the write speed settings is different in my version from that of the guide) is that setting saved? if you are using a mix of single layer and dl, is there a write speed that can safely be used with any media so you don’t have to keep changing this setting?

thanks.

Once you set the write speed for a certain MID(media ID) it is saved and that goes for any and all write speeds you set, and when you insert a disc it will burn at that speed.
The guide is based on the latest version of ImgBurn, if you have an older version you may want to think about updating your version :wink:

i’m running 2.4.4.0, which is the latest. i just ran a test. i set max write in imgburn to 2.4x. when dvdfab called imgburn the write speed was back to max.

maybe i’m incorrectly reading the guide. it says “put a bank disk into the burner, with imgburn open…”. i took this to be open imgburn directly (dvdfab not running) and set the write speed.

Run Verify in Imgburn and set it there to stay

Did you set the write speed in DVDFab’s common setting to recommended ?
and in ImgBurn when you open it as a standalone does it show AWS on the lower right ? when you have a blank inserted into the drive ?

ahh! i think i failed to click ADD in imgburn so it would change to AWS. my fault. (i used the write file/folder selection to get the device tab.)

but who takes precedence here? dvdfab’s common setting, or the imgburn aws detection? can you set it so the imgburn aws value is always used? this aws looks like the way to go.

yes set dvdfab speed to recommended

i made a new imgburn auto write speed video but you already posted by the time i was finished uploading it. anyway here you go if you want to see it.

edit//this video is much better quality than my previous, but no audio this time. be sure to use youtubes HD setting and full screen, looks nice

As I have said before and now Troy set DVDFab as recommended, and the write speed you set within ImgBurn will be used for each MID that was entered :cool:

I went to imgburn.com , but which one should I download?
