My exprence on DRW1004

Hi,

Just want to share my exprence on using BTC’s DRW1004.

I brought the drive last week, first I use DVD+R(SKY) & DVD+RW(Imation) to burn disk and it’s perfect,!

Two days before I get some DVD-R(Imation) & a DVD-RW(SKY) disk, then the problem rise!

I try use nero 6 to burn a ISO image to the DVD-R & DVD-RW, the nero hang after a while and result is there was a little circle burn on the disk.

After that I upgrade frimeware to 47, same problem again. So I try to use another software this time (Alcohol 120%), and the result is I can burn the same ISO image onto the DVD-R disk with no problem!

But when I try to erase the DVD-RW disk both erase utiltity (Nero & Alcohol 120%) CANNOT erase the DVD-RW, so I can’t test the DVD-RW (I only got ONE -RW disk), I will post the result here when I get a new DVD-RW disk or can find a way to erase the disk.

PS : The scuess DVD-R burn by Alcohol 120% is the same disk which fail on Nero 6, even the laser burn a circle on the disk (The program said it a blank disk), so I trust that this is not a media problem, it just the burning program problem.

Hopes it help! :slight_smile:

Try using the option “Ignore illegal TOC” in Alcohol 120%


Thanks PDU !

I have try all the options (Quick / Full ) ,Ignore illegal TOC . . .

BUT still don’t work :frowning:

Damn:confused:
Have you tried www.dvdinfopro.com ? Besides being a nice application it has RW erasing as well.

Cheers,
Peter

Still no luck on format the DVD-RW

Today I get one more DVD-RW, and use Alochol 120% to burn, but still fail. The disk print as “Smart” and the media code as follow :

00000000 00 6C 00 00 01 40 D6 FD 9E D8 20 00 02 0D 07 05 .l…@… …
00000010 88 76 09 00 03 50 52 49 4E 43 4F 00 04 00 00 00 .v…PRINCO…
00000020 00 00 00 00 05 0B AC 76 0C 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 …v…

Can someone give me a brank that can burn sucessfully?

i hear this:

Update:
I try to erase a -rw disc (normal speed)

Nero give me error:
PMA Update Failure
DVDRW IDE1004\H1 T0

Today I get another brank of DVD-RW (Imation) , I have no problem this time (Burn the disk & Format). So I guest that its the media problem.

My friend and i have tested a PRINCO 1-2x Ver.1.1 DVD-RW on both burners with up-to-date FW:

  • LDW-411S
  • BTC-1004IM
    NOT functional --> Most PRINCO Media are absolutely crap.

No problems with TDK’s and others so far
