LH-20A1H DVD Burning Problem

Hi to the cdfreaks-forum - this is my first post.
now to my prob:
for some weeks i´ve bought the new Lite-On LH-20A1H. i´ve got no problems under vista with it until yesterday…don´t know what happens. :frowning:
Now, every DVD-R that i´m burning ends with a write error in Nero 7.5.9.1 at maybe 30 % of the burning progress. i´ve installed the LH-20A1H at the secondary ide as master and an lg cd-rw (slave) on the motherboard Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe with an ide 80 conductor cable. Here is one of my nero logs:

what my wonders is, that there is no DVD or CD drive in the === Scsi-Device-Map ===

big thanks in advance,
Thomas.

Now, I´ve burned some CD´s with the LH-20A1H and i got no write error at all. The only problem is with the DVDs. Maybe there is something wrong with the DMA?
But when I look in the Device Manager…DMA seems to be enabled.

Welcome to CD Freaks.

Is that a new batch of DVDs you’re using?

Hi TimC,
no, unfortunately not. I´m using the same batch of verbatim 1x - 16x :confused:
Maybe you can see something strange in the logfile?

Thanks for reply, Thomas.

The only thing that I can see odd is the same as you’ve mentioned , namely the lack of devices in the SCSI map.

You could perhaps try uninstalling the IDE controllers drivers & rebooting letting Windows reinstall them. Often works in XP but I’m not familiar with Vista.

ok…thats what i have done: i´ve tried to uninstall the ide drivers and rebootet vista, after that i updated nero to v7.9.6.0.
burned two dvds with avi-files on it without any problems…
here is my new log:

seems like nothing has changed… :confused:
i will burn some more to see how stable it is

big thanks, TimC for support!

6 dvds gone to the garbage today, what´s going wrong with that burner?
Any idea what to do?

Thomas.

Do a “Create Disc” at 16X speed with Nero CD-DVD Speed and post the graph. If you don’t want to waste another disc, check the Simulate option with your DVD-R.

Then do a “Disc Quality” scan at 4X speed with one of the discs you burned successfully (and post the graph).

Thanks for the reply, cressida. I will do it when my drive is back - now, without any reboot my Lite-On LH-20A1H isn´t shown anymore in the device manager and i can´t open the drive. :sad:

Vista can do strange things I guess. Did you install any other burning related software recently?

Maybe an issue with the IDE cable or power connector. Make sure that both are properly seated and it’s not unknown for IDE cables to fail.

Also try with the LG CD-RW disconnected.

After the reboot the drive is back.

No, nothing like that.

The ide cable is new- got a 40 conductor cable before and changed it to 80 - burned between them 15 dvd´s without any error. The power connctors are new (3 month´s old) without any probs on a 600W BeQuit!
I will try some scans now.

Big thanks for your help!!!
Thomas.

Here is the “Create Disk” at 16x:

and here the “Disk Quality” at 4x:

double post…please delete

Again nothing major is wrong here, except for a bit of PIF-clustering in the scan. The burner seems to be set up and working correctly. Is the disc spotlessly clean? What is the “Made in …” country on the packaging?

Maybe do another scan with one of the failed discs to see if there’s higher errors at the point where it fails.

Here is the end of the story :doh:
As i booted this morning and wanted to make another scan, suddenly the drive has made terrible noises. Booted again, and tried different types of media…but nothing helped, the drive can´t read anymore cds / dvds. I´ve changed the IDE conductor cable, tried the drive as slave or on a another powercable…nothing helped. The drive now makes strange noises and can´t read any media.
The manufacured date is january 2007 and it´s made in china. I´ve bought it on 11.05. 17 days and gone - tommorow i will bring this drive back and hope that they won´t return it to the manufacturer and i can get a new one.

Big thanks to Cressida and TimC for support.

I had to return a Liteon LH-20A1P not so long ago as it failed , it seems these drives can do that.
You shouldn’t have any problem getting a replacement or refund under the circumstances.

Yes, sounds like a mechanical failure and a clear warranty case.

P.S. Sorry for being unclear, but I meant the Country of Origin of your Verbatims (all Lite-On’s come from China). :slight_smile:

Why do you have DMA turned off for your HDD’s?
