Nobody ever SOLVES this problem SH-S203N Freeze writing Lead-In

I swear to god I’ve searched many fourms where people mention the problem… but never if it was solved or what they did to remedy the situation. First off I have the SH-S203N Samsung burner. Installed it, tried to burn… freezed on 1% Writing lead in. I don’t remember what happened but a few days later (maybe after a restart) I tried it again and it worked. I burned one disc and tried it again a few days later (another restart maybe) wouldn’t work. My first thought was that it was due to a windows update. Regardless I went to the manufactures website and downloaded the mobo southbridge drivers (suggested as an idea) restarted the computer, dvd burner works, I burn 7 DVDs and I’m happy. Two days later (I think another windows update happened here and a restart) dvd burner making coasters again… 1% Writing lead in (CD’s have the same effect… except they get to 4% tho still writing the lead in). So I decide to reinstall the mobo drivers again… hoping that it works again, no dice… and no matter what I try to do it freezes at writing the lead in. If I wait long enough 10-15 mintues nero finally gives up and ejects my disk. Punching it after it freezes does not work either. I’m out of ideas. Here is what Nero rewards me with if I actually wait the 15 mintues without just shutting the comptuer down (cause I’m pissed) or ending the task.

Please help if you can, like I said I always see this problem, one person writes with a unhelpful reply “Use better media” and then the thread goes away. Can someone help me and others for once solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

James

First, you are using not reliable media.
Secondly, what driver ist that?
"CdRomPeripheral : HG3490U KZZ390X 1.0 a4h75wv9 Port 7 ID 0 DMA: Off "

The sata controller used is very important!!!
Either the sata controller setup is invalid, the controller doesnt support your burner/ODD or the sata cable is defective.

I honestly dont’ know what that is… I got the drivers off the manufactuer website. I do not have a CD-Rom … just the samsung burner. I used Memorex which I was told was a good brand but regardless using it as a CD Burner the Verbaitim CD-R’s produced the same result (freezing writing the lead-in) which very much makes me believe it’s not the media. On another note, I believe the HG3490U KZZ390X is the virtual drive from Daemon??? I could be wrong but I dont’ know what else that would be. I have ECS RS482-M mainboard with the latest drivers off their site I assure you. The mobo is set to IDE not RAID. Will try different cable and SATA slot on mobo tho.

Get rid of Daemon Tools and try again, just to rule out any software conflicts. :wink:

@ jamez243,

Who ever told you that Memorex – Ritek Media “Was A Good Brand” is “Totally Clueless”. Memorex – Ritek Media is probably the worst Media available. Get rid of you garbage Media and obtain known proven quality such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media.

Note in Forum Member chef signature for information on enabling DMA for you DVD Burner.

Remove any and ALL Virtual Drive Software that you might have installed.

Regards,
bjkg

Hi :slight_smile:
Welcome onboard jamez243. :iagree: :clap:
[U]N.B.The links for DMA checking/setting don’t apply to SATA.[/U]
The Via chipset is known to be a problem when using ODD’s.
Get a PCI SATA controller card (SiliconImage chipset based).
Alternatively change the motherboard.

:iagree: to [I]zebadee.[/I]

And when it comes to burning DVD Images, ImgBurn is still best burning software around. :slight_smile:
jamez243, use google and guides to learn more. It seems to be needed.

BTW, avoid Memorex branded RITEK F1 media on Sammys, this media is 100% crap on MediaTek chipset drives.
And AFAICS problem is solved :wink:

[quote=pinto2;1989523]BTW, avoid Memorex branded RITEK F1 media on Sammys, this media is 100% crap on MediaTek chipset drives.
And AFAICS problem is solved ;)[/quote]It’s not bad on my LiteOn 20A1P, but that’s just an exception to the rule. I agree to try some better media. :iagree:

Good to hear Albert. :slight_smile: (I liked your old nic better btw.)

But then you most probably have Riteks own F1 media in mind…
In recent times with rebranded F1’s not many have been that lucky.

[quote=pinto2;1989533]But then you most probably have Riteks own F1 media in mind…
In recent times with rebranded F1’s not many have been that lucky.[/quote]They have the capability to burn like this–even under the Memorex brand, but that quality seems to occur only with a few batches combined with few burners. Neither of my Samsung based drives do well with them at 16x, though, while other media [Verbatim comes to mind] does nicely in them.

Hehe. You’re the first I’ve heard that from about my username. :wink:

Newest development… when I burn a DVD at first… afterwards I get sound errors. No sound will play without logging off and logging back on. Ironically its just the opposite if I play a song first before burning… the burner locks up at the lead-in. I’m not 100% on this but tested both ways proved to be true. I’ll test a few more times to be positive that’s the case. Any ideas?

Also as far as the media goes I had no idea Memorex made shitty stuff… I just thought Memorex was Memorex but I’ll be more careful next time. Either way I still dont’ think that is the case of my problem tho. This sound/burning issue is wierd.

As for googling stuff, trust me I tried it. I don’t post on boards unless I’ve searched other fourms and Google and can’t find any information. Which just happened to be my case.

Thanks for you help and if you know anything about this sound/burning related issue please inform me.

(please no more comments about media types) lol thanks

James

Think everything you want is there at LUK’s homepage. :smiley:

@Albert, the last “good” RITEK F1 media I’ve seen here in Europe were Fujifilm branded (two years ago).

[I]Off topic[/I]
[I]chas0039[/I] once said; “Ritek could give it away and I would not pay” (linky). :bigsmile:

Thanks I’ll check that link and read up on the Via chipset. About the sound issue … even if I try to burn the DVD before playing sound the DVD will still freeze at the lead in. It never even makes the burning sound like its starting to burn… But when I do get it to work sometime when it does… the sound doesn’t work afterwards.

Your mobo doesn’t have a VIA chipset, but an ATI with SB400 southbridge. We don’t see too many of them here, so either they’re scarce or they all just work. The good thing is they’re SATAI, without AHCI, NCQ and other SATAII goodies that could impair compatibility with ODD.

([B]Arachne[/B] has the SB400 in one of her machines, I think (or is it SB450) - maybe she can test her still new-in-the-box 203N on there :p)

([B]Arachne[/B] has the SB400 in one of her machines, I think (or is it SB450) - maybe she can test her still new-in-the-box 203N on there :p)[/QUOTE]

SB450 ;)…and I was planning to put the 203N in the Dell, but I guess I could hook it up to the other machine first. :wink:

Unfortunately, the OP’s problem will probably have been solved by then…LOL :doh:

I tried the IMG Burn program and it’s been working quite well. Then I tried to burn a CD-R with Nero (Audio) and it worked too. Which makes me scared that if Nero is working, as soon as I restart … it won’t. Hopefully that won’t affect IMG Burn tho. I’ll post when my next restart happens and let you all know. Nero 8 is kinda shitty tho.

BTW, the southbridge’s SATA is equivalent to the Silicon Image 3112 [since ATI just threw in 2 of those controllers–1 controller for every 2 SATA–instead of doing their own SATA]. :wink:

is there any way I could get a ATI newer drivers or something… or drivers for the other chipset that you say is pretty much the same thing… or some way to set that up? Maybe it’s best that I leave it tho?

I have the 203B here running at the onboard 3112 without problems.
I have disabled SATA controller BIOS in the BIOS settings.
