Problem burning DVDs using sony DRU 810A

vbimport

#1

I bought sony’s DRU 810A, initially it was working fine, I wrote about 8-9 DVDs with it. But then it started giving me problems. I can still read the DVDs and read and write CDs. But I cant burn DVDs. It gives error after lead in startd and 1%(I dont exactly know what lead in means)

I connected my drive to my friends computer and burnt a DVD it worked just fine, i wrote video files.

I even reinstalled the system and tried to burn DVD but could not do it. I have windows XP SP2 and i use nero to burn discs.
I would be greatfull if you can help me.
Following is my log file. Please ask me if any other information is needed.

Things I’d do.

. Update Nero to 6.6.0.18 (Search as there are some links for it recently posted.) I prefer this to 6.6.1.4 that’s on Nero’s website.

. See if there’s a firmware update available.

. Burn the FujiFilm03 at 8x rather than 4x.

. Ensure that your burner is on a separate IDE channel to your HDD.

. Defrag the HDD regularly.

My problem is kind of the same but worse.
It instantly turns my PC off without giving time or evidence of showing any error message.
I cant turn my PC on for 30 seconds.

My Writer and nero is the same as yours and the problem at 1% is also the same as yours. so its not just you with this problem…

I finally write one DVD I did various things,

  1. Updated the firmware to 1.0e it was earlier 1.0d the link is http://www.sonyisstorage.com/bv_downloads/cpce/dvd/810A_1.0e.exe
  2. Installed the newer version of Nero.
  3. I did this also but dont know if it helped, disabled the imapi. imapi is the windows xp process to write cd’s which may conflict with third party tools like nero. It is easy to disable it.
    Cheers

I shall try this too :slight_smile:
I will let you know what happens…

Update
Nope, still instantly turned off my pc :a

Hi,

to make sure, that the drive does not cause the issue, disconnect it entirely. If your system runs stable then, the drive might be the reason for your issue. If not, then there is something wrong with your machine. Maybe a cheap or faulty PSU or a damaged mainboard (capacitors blown or leaking).

Such issues can never be resolved by firmware updates! Installing a firmware update on unstable systems may render the drive useless.
