Hey fellas. I’m having a problem burning in the last week or so. I’m producing coasters maybe 25% of the time now. For the last 4 years I have not produced a single coaster that wasn’t my fault…
I’m burning alot of different stuff with the same success rate which leads me to believe its my pc config. I have a 16X Pioneer DVD writer in there now, (I did try switching to my old single layer DVD writer with the same results). I’m getting kinda mixed error msgs and I’ve even tried three diff burning suites (Nero, DVD Decrypter, and CloneCD), again with about the same success rate of 25% failed…
I have noticed something new since the problem began… it seems to take a few seconds/minutes longer to even start the burn. It sometimes takes up to a minute to get to even 1% then it goes on which seems normal speed or it just fails. I also tried increasing my buffer size with no success.
I’ve tried turning down the speed to all options incase of a buffer underrun (even though both drives have buffer underrun protection). Again, didn’t fix it.
My IDE config looks something like this.
Primary: 1) c: drive (os drive) 2) DVD writer
Secondary 1) d: media driver. i burn alot off this drive. 2) e: another media drive, i also burn alot off this.
I dont burn much off c: drive but burn ALOT off the other 2 drives.
Anyone that can shed some insight into this would greatly be appreciated. Maybe I’m missing something. Heres one of errors I get with DVD Decrypter. Also I almost forgot, the media I’m using used to work fine in the drives. I’ve been using the same media forrrever.
I’ve also erased a whole HDD figuring maybe it was fragged to hell.
