So i have an HP dv6500t laptop running Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit that just so happens to have an Optiarc AD-7530A DVD burner…
(4GB RAM, 250GB HDD)
However, when I got to burn, I continuously get bad burns…
Basically here is what happens… everything will be burning fine and then around 10% all burning will stall. The disk will spin and the burner will make noise but no data will be written. This will last about 10min. Then all of a sudden it will start to burn fine again for a while. Then around 40-60% and then again at like 90% the same thing will occur. The resulting disk does not read well and when looking at the part that is burnt it does not look very nice at all. Kind of uneven almost.
I have tired the following programs and each of them have had the same issue:
Cheeta DVD Burner
I have tried the following mediums:
Memorex CD-R, TDK CD-R
Memorex DVD+R, TDK DVD+R
I have never had any issues with these mediums before.
Also, when using Nero cdspeed util on a Sony DVD+RW disk on simulate mode, everything was perfect. I haven’t written anything to them yet though… I know Optiarc is made by Sony and NEC… they wouldn’t pull anything mean and be like “you must use sony mediums!” would they? I know RW is diff from R so that might be the case as well…
Data seems to read fine off of already burnt medium.
I also can’t find much on google about this particular model of burner… and its not eve on the optiarc website…
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
