LiteOn iHAP322 tries to format DVD+R as DVD +/- RW

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On DVD RECORDER DVD±R RW. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]So i bought this burner about a year ago, only burned maybe 20-30 cds and roughly 3-5 dvds in that time. It doesnt get used very often so theres no reason it should be burned it yet, and it will still burn cdr’s well.

So i finally get the win7 release and buy some Memorex DVD+R’s and come home to burn my iso thinking to myself how amazing windows 7 is going to be. I pop said dvd in the drive and find im having issues, wind up with 4 different applications(PowerISO, gburner, imgburn and isoburn) and they all toss the same information, which whats happening is it tries to format my DVD+R’s it as if they were a DVD +/- RW. (also for the record dvd+r brand is ritek f16-01)

I flashed from ul17 to ul19 in hopes maybe it just was a newer brand of dvd and i just had older firmware. But, no avail. it is still tossing the same error. I took that set of discs back to walmart hoping it was a bad batch and on return, went ahead and burned a copy of win7 from my flashdrive on their display model laptop to one of the said dvd’s so i know they work.(Also note this is a fail idea as it results in being escorted out of the store.[if you have my luck itll be your exgirlfriends dad/security that does it]) and now im home again with a dvd burner that wont burn dvds.

theres no errors in the admin logs on my pc. all i get from poweriso is could not format dvd.

any help would be greatly appreciated and i apologize if what i wrote doesnt make sense, im just very frustrated at the moment.

Hi and Welcome!

could you please post the logfile from ImgBurn? Maybe this helps narrowing down the issue you’re having.

Michael

As far as posting the imgburn logfile i would, but when i run imageburn it never times out on the format.

As soon as i press the burn icon it asks if i want to format so i click no, returns me to the main menu.

upon clicking it again, i click yes, and it says formatting disc and it never times out, itll keep trying to format and let my drive light blink, and after a while my system hangs and it crashes.

what i have at the moment though is this:

*the change from 4gb to 3gb ram came because i pulled a gig out and stuck it in my other desktop/server, also the reason for device removal detected in imgburn is due to hanging my pc hoping it would cancel the burn instead of lock my pc up because its a pain to enter a 65 char password every reboot (truecrypt)

the 1 unknown drive that is found is a PowerISO virtual drive.

give me about 5 minute sill post the PowerISO log.

Ok. just errored in poweriso.

and thats it.

It seems like the 860S is in an external case operating through USB. If so, then it is a problem of the SATA-to-USB bridge chip, not the drive. There’s no guarantee that crossflashing it to a iHAS322 would make a difference.

Hi,

you happen to have software like Deamon Tools, Alcohol or similar installed?
Edit: according to your ImgBurn log, you have. And this might be the culprit.

Michael

P.S.: I deleted your other post since crossposting is against the forum rules. :cop:

@KTL: I don’t have an issue problem using usb than sata since I bought this burner, when in a burning process my reading buffer & device buffer are both 98-100%… (seems stable though) :slight_smile:

@Michael: I’m using alcohol120%, its seems there nothing wrong with it… coz I tried this to my another desktop comp. without alcohol and they have the same result… it just only happen with this damn 2 kind of discs(arita, imation dvd+r 16x)… :sad:

I put another test its dual-layer disc (generic brand)… I inserted blank DL and imgburn turn to Ready…

is it possible that this 2 dvds that i bought was not really recognize or support by my sony dru-860s?:doh: I dont know if the rumors are true that Sony is a kind of burner thats too picky on regards of dvd brands/manufactures… :confused:

My point wasn’t because you can’t burn, but rather using the particular bridge chip may cause some programs recognizing discs as something else.

Very unlikely because those media are widely popular and has been around for quite some time.

does OmniPatcher can do the trick, so that this discs can be usable again…? btw how can I extract my own drives firmware what tool can I use if ever…? :slight_smile:

[QUOTE=seraphimcall;2438780]does OmniPatcher can do the trick, so that this discs can be usable again…?[/quote]Omnipatecher doesn’t support newer hardware.

You may just have a look at the [B]Read First[/B] threads. Flash Utility and EEprom Utility is, what you’re looking for.

Michael

thanks michael & KTL for helping out… :bow: I’ll try to read alot more threads to figure it out on how can I used to burn this kind of dvds. :wink: I wont give-up until my head explode… :a

Well, we certainly don’t want anyone to end up in a psychiatric ward from the headaches of DVD burners. :cool: Like mciahel indicated, the Flash utility will allow you to extract the 860S firmware from the drive. You can also try to use the drive internally if a desktop is available to you.

I have had the same exact problem with my iHAP322, internal model. It tries to format +R discs. Resetting the firmware and rebooting will allow Nero or IMGBurn to make one copy, after that it’s toast.

Never had problems with -R in the past with this drive, the problem seems exclusive to +R discs so far.

Do you have any packet writing software installed?
