vbimport

#1

Hi, All
Hope anyone can help me.

I recently got my self a LG-4163B DVD combo burner. (internal drive). I aldo got a IDE to USB cable so i can plug the device to my laptop via usb and back up data. I have plugged the drive to my Laptop with O/S: winxp Pro sp2 and running Nero OEM.

Fault: When i Burn a cd to CD or an image to cd it keeps failing. The first CD will burn ok. But the second or third will fail. And this keeps on happening. Here is the sample of the nero Erroe log:

What media did you use?


#3

Well i used the standard DVD-R 4.7 GB Mitsubishi, and also tried with normal CD-r’s

#5

6.3.1.26 ist pretty old.

Sascha


#6

Ok i will give it a try and let you knoe .Thnaks


#7

What do you mean by “normal” CD-R’s? Top-brand retail ones from Mitsubishi and Taiyo Yuden?

(Post just once only, you posted the same thing on Newbie forum before which I noticed but didn’t report about it.)


#8

Hi,

Yes i have updated Nero to the latest Version, and yes i am using Mitsubishi Recordable DVD and CD’s. Which i have been using for the past 9 months.

I was thinking would it be a problem with the USB Type. Sience my Ide to usb adapter is USB 2.0 and the pc is USB 1.0, was wondering this woul have any effect. Yes sorry for posting twice as i am new to this.


#9

OMG, at least have a PCI USB 2.0 card for CD and DVD burning. There must be cheap cards that cost under US$10. Perhaps under US$5. Even US$500 notebooks now have USB 2.0. Even USB 2.0 may not be sufficient but it’s much faster than USB 1.x.


#10

Hi,
Thanks for you help and replys. Yes i have ordered a USB2.0 pci card. I hope this will work. Carried out some fault finding. I have put the dvd as normal on to the pc using the ide cagle only. Tested it seems to work fine. Borrowed a normal cd burner from my friend and tested using the ide to usb cable and it has the same error as the LG DvD burner. So if the USB 2.0 card works then i know it will be a problem with the USB transfer speeds. I hope. Will let you know how it works.

One more Question. When i purchased this LG-4163B it said the DVD burn speed can got up to 16x speed, But so far its maximum speed is only 4X do you have any ideas?


#11

Deraz: there is no point to even try anything on a usb 1 port, it is simply not fast enough. Usb 2.0 is capable of 16x burns under ideal conditions.
The LG GSA-4163B is fast enough, but you have to connect it right and your computer needs to be fast enough to supply the data at that speed.


#12

Hi Xterminator

Thanks for your help. I purchased a new USB2.0 pci card installed it and then tried it with the USB2.0 IDE adapter. The same results occur. It hangs when burning halfway. Have no idea what to do, now. But the LG GSA-4163B DVD is not giveing me the x16 burn speed on DVD. So i connected it as normal and it is still the same. Are the speeds Disc dependent.


#13

Deraz:
Maybe the USB-2-IDE adapter does not work with LG drives (or any optical drive). If you look in the big external drive thread, you will see that there are lots of problems with external cases, and your adapter is like an external case without a case. Try to find out if others have tried out this adapter or the chip that is inside it.


#14

Only real 16x rated media are supported for 16x burning in GSA-4163B. Like YUDEN000T03, TYG03, MCC004, MCC03RG20, RICOHJPNR03, and so on.

For experiments and tests, use CD-RW and DVD+RW media for writing and CD-ROM and DVD-ROM (including Video CD and Audio CD and DVD-Video types) disks to isolate problem and bottlenecking sources. Use testing software like Nero CD Speed and Sandra as well.

You probably went to an offline shop to have the USB 2.0 PCI card that fast. :slight_smile:

A-it’s your media, Nero auto-recognizes it’s read speed.You need 16x DVD’s.

Do you type 400 wpm?

Then don’t worry about saving 5 minutes of burning time @ 16x.

Burning speed is a myth.

Also, is the player yopu are going to use the DVD burn in 16x compat. Prob. not.

Cheers.

A-Don’t burn on the fly.

Patience is vitrue.
