In need of serious assistance

Hello, I am new here and I have turned to this forum because I have hit a dead end as to what I might do about a problem I’ve spontaneously encountered. I will try to be as detailed about the whole experience as I can in this post and would appreciate any suggestions you might be able to offer. For some months now I have been using
1clickDvd 5.4.1.8
along with DVD43 3-9-0
on my home/business machine
which is a 2.66Ghz Intel dual core with 2GB ram
supporting two optical drives

One is a LiteOn SOHC 5232K DvdReader/Cdbuener
The other is a LiteOn DVDRWLH-18A1P.

About two days ago I was making a backup copy of one of my Star Trek boxed sets. I cleaned every disc with a dab of eyeglass cleaner and a soft cloth before proceeding to burn them. The first two copied perfectly. The third was apparently riddled with bad sectors according to OneClickDVD, although it played flawlessly on my Dvd player and after cleaning it there was nothing but a few surface scratches remaining.

Seeing as there was very little I could do. I proceeded to burn the disc anyway hoping that a few bad sectors here or there would not ruin the entire DVD. 1click Dvd proceeded to begin burning, but upon requesting blank media for the copy froze up and crashed my entire system forcing me to perform a hard restart of my machine.

Since that time Every single Dvd I have tried to burn, even newly bought as yet unopened ones, have according to one click dvd had bad sector after bad sector. I don’t understand what could possibly have happened. I have since yesterday switched from

DVD43 to AnyDVD 6.3.1.5

I have also upgraded to OneClick DVD 5.4.2.6

I have used a Dvd laser lens cleaning CD on the drives and have also unmounted them and blown through the assembly with compressed air.

The problem persists no matter what I seem to try.

I have even considered performing a firmware update on both the drives but have not yet proceeded to that point.

I run a video production business from my home and as such rely heavily on my DVD burners for dvd authoring/burning and copying.

I can not believe that both the drives would somehow simultaneously fail especially since the entire system I now use was built less than 5 months ago. If anyone can help I welcome the suggestions/ advice

If it turns out that I must replace both the drives, then I would also appreciate any recommendations you might have concerning DVD burners that can handle high volumes of burning without breaking down after a few months of use.

Thank you

I would go ahead and …

[B] Try Refreshing Your IDE/DVD Drivers[/B]
( same procedure for Resetting a 'stubborn" DMA )
Use this Link for reference :
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=101616

Empty your CD/DVD Drives

Go to >
>> Start > Right Click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware Tab
>> Device Manager

Click the + to Open the IDE ATA ATAPI Controllers
Right Click on the IDE Channel > Properties > Advanced Tab

The First Primary IDE Should read @ Ultra DMA Mode 5
This is Correct = It’s your Hard Drive

> Either a Secondary IDE OR a ‘Second’ Primary IDE
Should have Two Devices ( DVD/CD Drives )
Each Device Should be reading Ultra DMA mode 2
( Depending on the DVD Drive - One might read : Ultra DMA mode 4 )
This will be the ‘corresponding’ IDE Channel - supporting your DVD/CD Drives
[I][B]If it instead Reads : PIO … Yes , that’s the one you’re looking for [/B][/I]

Even though It may be ‘reading’ DMA correctly ;
Follow these instructions

> Go into your Device Manager
> UN install Any/ [B]All [/B]DVD/CD Drives ( Yes , IF : Both Drives )
> Right Click on Drive > Select=UNinstall

Do not restart Yet

> UN install the corresponding IDE Channel
> Right Click on IDE Channel , Select=UNinstall
> [B]Now[/B] REboot
>> REboot [B]again[/B]

This will force the Reinstall of DVD Device Drivers - Refreshing the Drivers

  • which may correct any ‘communication’ issues/corruption

If for some reason your DMA is ‘out-of-whack’

  • The above will fix that too

At any rate ; It won’t hurt

  • It may correct any Drive Communication Issues

At the First sign of any trouble .
this is usually the first thing I’ll do .
You may have just left in a “Skipping Bad Sector”/ CRC error for too long



I might  suspect that you may have a "Bad" Source Disc ( ? ) 
.....  so let's get that - out of the way -

Inspect the Disc and try cleaning it - even if it doesn't look like it needs it.

If this doesn't prove successful ...
Use the [B]VSOInspector[/B] to scan the Disc ( it's Free )
http://www.vso-software.fr/products/inspector/inspector.php

[I][B]Scan with  BOTH "Surface Scan" and "File Test"[/B][/I]

If the Inspector reports  "READ Errors"
Then you'll know that you've come across a "BAD" Source Disc .
I would then suggest that you   acquire a different copy
 ... and compare your results .

Also …

Please Post a >> F8 log session of the attempt(s) …
Let us read the ‘process’ and ‘error’ in context

  • and your options - selected

Open 1Click >> F8 >> Copy and Paste in Reply
Look for :
Session Started” / “Session Closed

  • to divide the individual sessions

Post one “Complete” Session per Reply Post
One or Two “Session(s)” in question should suffice

If the One Session is too long - Divide the Session into Two Postings

Your log will instantly answer 20 questions we might have

Let us take a look …

Here is one of the requested logs: Note prior to this burn I inspected the source disc using VSO Inspector and did not receive a single error on any of the tests.
