NEC Burner Stops burning around 40%

vbimport

#1

hi, ive had my burner for around 1 and half years, all been well until recently, when it stops burning the buffel level goes crazy, it goes from 97% to 7% then to 66% and so on but fins at 7% then stops working, ive tried nero dvd decrypter and dvd shrink does it with al of them (i wondered if it was the software for a while), ive also tried dif speeds from 4 to 16 and still does it, occasionaly it will actually finish one but not very often, personally i think its the writer thats gubbed, but i thought i would try here, dma is enabled ok and my system is fine

Win XP sp2
2.66 P4
1.5 G ram
2 hdd’s 76gb and 160gb, runs off the 76gb

here is the error log, any help would be great, cheers

#2

sorry this error report was from nero incase that matters


#3

Please remove the serial right away.

Also update Nero to 6.6.1.4 and then try with better media.

Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR)


#4

what u mean remove the serial?, its tuffdisc im using been using them for about 1 year, so that shouldnt be the prob


#5

With the buffer levels, is it the device buffer or the read buffer that fluctuations wildly. If the read buffer then a defrag might help - should be a regular thing anyway.

It could be the drive is going but the first thing I’d try would be different media. If you get the same results with a quality media then it’s probably the drive.

SVP are a very good online media seller if you’ve not used them before. They’re doing a Philips SPD2400 for £20 which is actually a Liteon 1635S and with the modded firmware being tested here is not performing too badly - when cross flashed that is.


#6

Fixed it


#7

it is the device buffer that does it, i had a feeling it would be the drive, just didnt want to buy a new one then the same thing happens, so thought i would ask, ill try dif media then prob buy a new drive, cheers


#8

Thanks Liggy!
