LITE-ON SOHW-1673S@1693S KC3B - Problem Burning Quixo DVD-R

Hello!

I have a LITE-ON SOHW-1673S@1693S KC3B writer. Today I had a problem doing a DVD-Copy with Nero Burning ROM on a Quixo DVD-R. The copy went ok till the end, then, whilst writing the lead-out, copy aborted and a fatal error showed up. I tried twice and the error showed up both times. I paste below the Nero log of the error:

13.00.15 #27 Phase 38 File dlgbrnst.cpp, Line 1832
Burn process failed at 8x (11.080 KB/s)

Can anybody diagnose this before I waste more DVDs trying to carry out this copy?

Thanks
Davide

This is more likely due to cheap media. Checking VideoHelp.com and there not much about Quixo, at most rated 4X. Try better media. Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim.

Try different media. I don’t think Plasmon are the best…use TY or Verbatim media, as suggested.

Ok thanks
Davide

upgrade to KC4B?

I was planning to wait for KC5B :slight_smile:
no apart from jokes… I will.

Thanks
Davide

ROTFL :bigsmile:…yeah, from my own experience, upgrading to KC4B was definitely a good idea - burns improved no end, especially with -R media.
