Problem Burning Dual Layers



The problem I have is that every time I try to burn a dual layer disc I receive an error: Unable to read file: Reason(cyclic redundancy error). I understand that this is usually cause by a corrupted or bad file, but every single dual layer iso I have gives this error. And I know there correct because I have checked the files size and are exactly the same. I have tried many programs as well dvd decrypter imgburn and nero. I have also used many types of media, so that cant be it eithier. The current one now I am trying to burn may be due to the fact that it is in mode 1. I don’t know if that is of any importance, but if I use Nero to try to burn it it goes to a burn cd iso screen and will not let me select dvd. and when I try to burn it in dvd decrypter error invalid or unsupported image. All Help is appreciated in advance.


Post a log from Imgburn please, they can be found at Help/Imgburn logs from the main interface.


You could also describe the process you use to get the project you are trying to burn to your hard drive?


And most important, what kind of media. If it ain’t a Verbatim DL, BenQs don’t like them.


yeah like LOCOENG asked post the log so we can see more info like what model BenQ and firmware,media (like negritude asked),burn speed etc…


Thanks for the helps guys. sorry about that i guess I should have posted that first thing. And your right I have never used Verbatim, Ive tried many others memorex (supposedly one of the best, who knows), sony and etc. But anyways heres the log for the last DL Burn I attempted And they were all isos if that makes a difference.

Thanks guys For the help


Try Verbatim…you might/should have good luck with 8x made in Singapore Verbatim DVD+R DL [MKM 003]. :iagree:


Thank you I think I will have to try that, sounds like the best option but are these from singapore
I will post back with results thanks.


yeah the media your using isn’t the best but…

What did you use to make that .iso with? Looks like the .iso is damaged and/or your hard drive with your operating system is making this happen. Odd ImgBurn cannot read that .iso on your hard drive.

Source File: C:\Program Files\FriiDump 0.4.0\Super Smash Bros. Brawl.iso

Your log says:

E 07:48:56 Failed to read from file: Super Smash Bros. Brawl.iso
E 07:48:56 Reason: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

So it looks like to me the file and/or your hard drive is the problem. The burn fails due to not getting the info from your hard drive to burn it.

Maybe someone else with more knowledge than me will post.


thanks bob, I used A program called friidump to create this iso. It is a program to allow you to backup your dual layer wii games. I thought that originally as well. I had researched the cyclic redundancy error. And come to that same conclusion. But every Dual Layer gives that same error. Also the Disc size is literally perfect. Not saying it cant be the problem but I believe its highly unlikely. Also every disc stops at the very beginning at 1% before the information even begins to burn. Hope all this info helps in solution and thanks to everyone who helps.


I 07:39:57 Write Speed: 1x

Choose 2.4 for those discs and the Verbatims when you get some…too slow can be just as bad as too fast.


thanks Locoeng, I am going to pickup some verbatim will try to burn with that speed and post back with results.[U]


Thanks all, I have discovered the problem. Apparently there was something wrong with my source file. I have had this problem previously so eithier my hardrive is going bad or it doesnt like dual layers. I had to use checkdisk to fix the damaged file. after that burned like a breeze. I want to thank everyone and hope this helps someone else.


Glad you found the problem.

You’re using an older 1620 burner that may not be able to burn DL media as well as a 1640, a 1650, or a 1655. Plus, RITEK D01 is not that good of a DL media. You definitely need to stick with Verbatim.
