If you’ve been following along, I ran the clean tools, installed Nero 6.6.1.4 OEM, and burned the first DVD at 8X and a second at 16X without problems. Last night the speed check thought Nero could write at 44X, but it burned at 16X, seemed to work fine but Read/Write errors on the Verification phase:

Also, OT, I see a lot of recommendations for Taiyo Yuden (sp?) media, but have never seen it in the local B&M stores. www.newegg.com sells it, but only in DVD-R. What is a good source for this?


#2

I’ve never used them but many members recommend rima.com


#3

Thanks.

On second look, Taiyo Yuden seems to not make DL media and to only sell in 50-packs or larger.

Anyone have any thoughts on the log file errors?


#4

I didn’t realize you were looking for DL media but you will find 100% agreement (or close to that) for Verbatim DL.

On sale, Newegg usually has them for approximately $1.50 per disc.


#5

Thanks,

I actually didn’t realize my burner could handle DL until I started trouble-shooting, but I’m having problems burning single-layer right now so . . .


#6

I would turn “Multisession” off in Nero and maybe try with another ribbon cable (use 80-wire).


#7

Okay, I’ll do that. Not sure whether the current cable is 80-wire or not, but I’m sure I have one or five lying around the house.

Also, if all else fails try temporarily uninstalling your virtual drive software til this is fixed.

Lowering the burn speed to 12x or 8x would be an idea too :slight_smile:

The Media code of the disc you’re using is MCC004, are you using Verbatim discs? They burn as well as TY in my book, if you are using them, so there shouldn’t be a media problem, unless you got a bad batch.

I don’t use virtual drive software. I’m not sure what
TS2463Y GIW823R I: CDRom2
is.

I think either BlindWrite or Alcohol 120% put it in, and it didn’t seem to want to uninstall, so I just dealt with having it there.

Lowering the burn speed to 12x or 8x would be an idea too :slight_smile:

Well, the latest version of Nero 6 Verify speed first said it could only burn at 8X and did, then said it could handle 16X and did, then said it could handle 44X, burned at 16X and failed the verification. I have had discs fail the burn stage previously at 8X though. Problem also is it is not predictable, so it’s not like I can’t burn at all and suddenly I can. 2 out of 3 will work, so it’s easy to change something and think I fixed it and find out a few days later I really didn’t.

Correct, Verbatim discs. They are definitely easier to find than TY, so if they are pretty good I’ll probably stick with them. They are better than the Playo discs I used previously, but those were hit-or-miss also.

Well, after some Google searching -

The Drive is a Magic Spin DVDRW by Digital Research, but that seems to also mean I/O Magic or BTC. Drive Firmware numbering seems to support this assumption as well.

Based on these responses:

I am thinking it might be best to retire this burner and replace it with something else.

I have used and liked Lite-On in the past, but have heard good things about Samsung and Asus. Would prefer a white face drive to match the case, but would buy a black-face drive if much better quality rather than spend the money on a white face version. I also want good DL burning support, although I don’t care about DL speed.

Newegg seems to have a lot of options in the same price range. What would you recommend out of:

Samsung SH-S182D $36 (Black bezel, though, also doesn’t say it supports DL)
ASUS DRW-1608P3S BG OEM $36 (White Bezel, also doesn’t say it supports DL)
Lite-On LH-18A1P-184 $36
Lite-On LH-20A1P-184 $40 (Faster than above, but I’m not really worried about speed other than faster top speed may give more stable low speed.)

Any recommendations out of the above, or any other suggestions I should look at?


#11

All current drives support DL. The Asus is a rebadged Pioneer 111 and although I’m not a DL burner myself, I believe this would be a good choice for you.


#12

Thanks that helps.

The Pioneer 111 gets mixed reviews on Newegg. Won a customer choice award, but seems to maybe need a firmware upgrade and have a high DOA incidence. Makes me a bit nervous. (I’ve bought stuff from Newegg before thinking those were just other’s isolated incidents and found I had the same problem).

Why don’t you use DL? Cost of media? Time? Compatibility? Problems with it? No need for it?

Just curious.


#13

No need for it, I just “shrink” the main movie onto a SL disc (and don’t really trust DL technology, other than that it’s too expensive as well). I do own a Pioneer 111 and have had no problems with it. It’s also highly regarded on this board and I believe it’s one of the best DL burners around. For me personally, Pioneers are a bit bland (plain-looking, no useful scanning, average firmware support), but I remain with my recommendation for the Asus.


#14

If you like yours I guess it would be your recommendation for SL as well, then?


#15

Yes, great burns - just look in the scans thread:

I did a couple with mediocre media, which still were good:

Hmmmmn, 28-page thread, most of the data looks okay, but one post says it doens’t like Verbatim MCC-04 disks which are what I’ve been using.


#17

Thanks Cressida,

I swapped the cables over the weekend (previous was an 80-pin also) and tried to burn 4 more DVD’s. 1 passed and three failed Nero’s verification after the burn. All the files SEEMED to be there, but CDCheck also gave errors, so I guess I need a new burner.

Checked CDR-Info and they like the ASUS drives also (although it’s an 18-month old review): http://www.cdrinfo.com/Forum/tm.asp?m=114817&mpage=1&key= http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=14511
