Liteon 812s DVD Burning problem: takes ages, burn fail

vbimport

#1

hey guys,
in may i bought a Liteon 812s DVD/CD combo burner after having read great reviews about liteon. All was working brilliantly till about a week ago, i had a massive spyware/adware hijack of my system due to someone clicking on yes some popups :frowning: . Everything went wrong, including nero where the symptoms first started so i reformated the system, reinstalled XP updated windows etc and working fine. However, the burning problem didnt stop. Everytime i wanted to burn a movie for example(using good media RITEKG04 at 4x) It would burn a coaster and it would take upto 2 1/2 hours for the whole process. it keeps doing it over n over again, real slow. I even updated the firmware to the latest (USOQ). It will burn CDs at max speed (x40). Researching the site i found Kprobe and on analasis the Burst Rate was 26.34 MB/s so no problem there i guess. I even reinstalled nero various times, different versions even but no help. The device is on IDE 2 as Master, DMA 2. What the Hell is going on i wonder? i hope you guys can help :bow:

heres the result from kprobe:

Welcome to cdfreaks

Check your aspi layer with NeroInfo Tool and make sure you have version 4.60. If not killaspi and install right one. :cool:

What (other then Nero) program(-s) do you use for burning? Can you post a scan of your “coasters”… :wink:


#3

cool, thanx for the reply. Ive checked the ASPI layer and its all 4.60. The only programm im using is nero because ive never had problems with it and because its easy to use. Iv got a coaster left (the rest i flung off my balcony! :bigsmile: ) but with what programm would i produce a scan?

Hi there,

Leave the scan utilities for later (www.cdspeed2000.com or Kprobe2 at cdfreaks).

Your problem is more likely related to Hw/Bios/Sw/OS re-installation or a hidden running process heavily loading your CPU (virus or not). The key symptom is your burning process is sooo SLOW (2,5 hours… ?) for a 4x selected speed.

When burning at 4x a whole 4.7GB DVD disc, it should last around 12-18 minutes. Yours are taking 10 times that value.

Have you checked for viruses? other processes running? You can try DVD burning in Nero under SIMULATION mode / Test max. speed. Don’t waste discs. It’s easy to test; if you do not know how to choose that under Nero6, just ask :slight_smile:

You may try to simulate or test speed DVD burning to an image (HD); depending upon your HD/IDE/Mobo/etc quality the max speed result can throw a theoretical astonishing value of 10x, 24x, 33x… for example; it would mean a burning time of less than 10 minutes by far…

Hope this helps; don’t hesitate to ask… :slight_smile:

Funny 40tacos… Some time ago a made a “transfer test” guide on the fly for one of our members in NEC forum. :wink:

It´s still a ongoing project, but so what, here it is.


#6

Funny pinto2; raico would be happy with that guide… :wink:

@raico
To be clearer, I expect your current results in the simulation / test max speed will be a very low value (< 1x), or just a Nero error, or just Nero lasts too much, of course in that PC. I imagine you are currently trying to update your antivirus software and running it completely… :slight_smile:

Good luck,

hmm interesting, my system did have a hi-CPU load during the infection. Also after the reformat+reinstallation. It was OK after i downloaded all the windows updates. The only result im getting at the moment which i forgot to mention was enabling the Simulation option in Nero, like u guys said. it saved me from getting anymore coasters but was frustrating and almost time wasting. :Z I was only recently able to make a DVD movie using the simulation but still that took a whole 45 mins (sim+burn). In normal time at 4x it shoulda taken a total of -30mins i guess. I´ll try to install another antivirus software or put the drive in another PC to test it. Maybe it works… :confused:
Thanx for the help! :slight_smile:


#8

Check in the device manager that it ís UDMA 2 or Ultra DMA 2 and that your hard disk is running in a UMDA mode, too. You should also post the output of nero infotool.


#9

Right, the only result i seem to be getting is with RPINCO white label media at 4x with simulation ON. Each takes over 45 mins…
here a copy of NERO INFOTOOL: (i guess most of the info is useless :eek: )

#10

Your directx is out of date as well as your version of nero.


#11

DirectX does not matter in DVD burning.

Nero version is important, but you say your system was working until recently, so it’s not the most important thing right now.

RE-READ all the thread: the first important is you thoroughly check your system against viruses with an updated antivirus (well, tha’s my opinion). Then…

Re-check UDMA2 enabled in Windows control panel / configuration.

You are using Seagate disks (40GB + 120GB?). Now I ask…

(1) How much free space is there on those hard disks?
(2) Which hard disk are you using for ‘temp’ files in Nero?


#12

I had a similar problem which was somewhat resolved after setting my AV to scan only selected data files and excluding my working video directories.

Before that my settings after restoring my system from a virus attack whas to check all file s on create and modify. A liitle too much paranoia!


#13

well the directX update was done, nevermind. The system was still dodgy after the reinstallation but was OK after loadsa WIN updates, except for the burning problem which still persisted… :frowning:

In the device manager the PRIMARY IDE CHANNEL is ULTRA DMA MODE 5, The SECONDARY IDE is ULTRA DMA MODE 2
so i presume thats OK.

As for the 2 Hardrives,
-the 40 gig is my C: (MASTER) with XP and main programms installed with about 14GB LEFT
-the 120 gig is my D: (SLAVE) used mainly for storage (Movies etc…) with about 560MB left
On nero File->Preferences the cache is set to the C: Drive so that should b OK

As for the virus scanner, havent found another but will turn my current one (kaspersky) OFF next time i burn see if that helps. i think thats what u meant jrmjhowell.

Maybe if i use another IDE cable it might solve the problem although CD´s did burn OK…

I just cant think of anything else… :rolleyes:


#14

hmm…

For testing purposes:

(a) Turn off kaspersky: OK
(b) Change IDE cables: OK (healthy, for testing purposes)
© 120gig disk (99% full) … intuition rings a bell… Please free 5GB space there (or more), despite the fact is not your TEMP disk…

Regarding ©, at the end you should seriously consider using 120gig disk for TEMP purposes (Nero, etc), because it is likely to have beter performance (faster) than 40gig… :slight_smile: I had that HD model months ago and did a lot of tests: the speed profile it too varying, I mean, upon heavy use, there will be zones in the Seagate 340810 that will perform very sloooow reading / writing. I won’t be surprised if you finally determine that changing Nero TEMP, pagefile.sys, etc (or your whole OS install) from 40gig to 120gig disk … would solve your problem.

Hope this helps

:o NEWS NEWS!!!

i have tried all the methods mentioned but NADA.

  • i transfered the drive to another PC (WIN 2000), same results
    -Used another IDE cable, same results
    -Turned off Kaspersky AV, same results
    -Vigorous antivirus Scans, same results
    -etc etc…

Finally the other day i tried to burn at X2 speed instead. The burn process went smoothly and took an average, healthy 27mins for x2. I used various formats, ISO movies etc and they all went well. I guess this means my Drive is faulty and there is something wrong with the Drives Firm/Hardware for burning at 4X.
Thanx for all the HELP YOU GUYS!! :bow:

P.S. at 4X speed burning the Recorders buffer level would go up n down frantically from 0-100%. At 2X or healthy burns (also CD) the recorder buffer would stay in the +95% region. Maybe these figures could help diagnose these symptoms?


#16

have you tried this.Troubleshooting

Q: Why is my drive burning and/or reading so slow? And not only is it writing slow, why is it writing so poorly?
A: Please download KProbe, and then under the Info menu, select Drive. Query the drive and notice the burst rate of the drive. If the burst rate of your drive is less than 20 MB/s, then you have a problem with how your system is interfacing with the drive. Almost always, this translates to DMA not being enabled for your drive in your system configuration, which leads to slower read performance, slower write speeds, and lower write quality. To find out more about DMA and how to turn it on, please refer to this guide: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=101616

If your drive has a healthy burst rate (in excess of 20 MB/s), then there are other things to look out for:
(insert list of other causes here)


#17

Is the IDE cable for the secondary an 80 pin (thinner wire cable 2x the wires) type or the standard 40 pin IDE? My particular MB won’t enable Ultra DMA unless it detects the newer style IDE cable.

Just a thought. Although if you have the same style cables as when all was fine it probably won’t matter.

AS for the AV software. I never disable it completely, I just exclude the working directories (video temp, and final Audio_TS / Video_TS) from the realtime scans.


#18

hey guys i have got the same problem, only mine is the external drive the SOHW-821S…any suggestions? the burning takes agessss when nero estimates the process to take 8mins…


#19

I’ve the same problem, after flash my slimline LiteOn sdw-431s (oem) drive with the (wrong) firmware of the sdw-431 (external). Nero shows 4x speed, but 1hour is needed for a full dvd (=1x speed).
Did you update your firmware??
