LG 4163B read error

vbimport

#1

Ok folks. I’ve had practically no problems until now with the LG GSA4163B. Until BORAT. Now all I make are coasters. I’ve used numerous programs. It stops burning and gives me this error:

1:50:45 PM #28 Phase 38 File APIProgress.cpp, Line 273
Burn process failed at 8x (11,080 KB/s)

There was a previous entry about not reading data. This is only during the burn process. Firmware up to date. I ran some kind of Sony diagnostic program with no problems. Any guidance would be appreaciated!

Posting the whole Nero log would help here.

It’s this read error that is the cause of the problem. Where is it reading from? If it’s the HDD then you could be having problems with it which could be as simple as a faulty IDE cable.


#5

Yes, I have one HDD and one DVD burner. It’s a new HDD. I’ll check the cable. But wouldn’t that cause many other problems also? I am running in dual channel mode. HDD on channel 0 and DVD on channel 1. Should I put them on the same cable or keep the same config?


#6

Keeping the same config as you’ve got is best.

You could the standard Windows error check on the drive to see if there are any problems with it.


#7

UPDATE: The BRAND NEW Maxtor/Seagate 200 Gig drive just went. That’s why the read errors. I’mtrying seagate tools to either resurrect the drive or at least get important data. If that doesn’t work, it’s covered under warranty for replacement.


#8

I guess that would explain it then.

Hope you can salvage any important data on the drive. Maybe invest in an external drive & Acronis True Image to do system backups once you’re up & running.


#9

Hi,

Knoppix or Kanotix (both are Linux Live CDs) do a good job in retrieving data. And they do not write to the disc (unless you enable that explicitly). Running any “Repair” Tool might wipe the remainders of your data from the disc.

#10

Some of these boot CDs are pretty useful. I’ve just created one with UBCD4Win, found here . Looks very handy, perhaps not for your immediate situation but for future reference.

I had a look at Knoppix and whilst I’m sure it’s good I could figure what do do with it.

I personally use Knoppix mostly for creating backup images of my Windows installation and some critical web applications like banking.
