Problems with Decrypter and IMGBurn

Can anyone tell me why I’m having problems? These are some of my specs, and I downgraded from Vista to XP on this system. The drive seems to not burn properly with Decrypter and IMGburn.

Computer Brand Name: Gateway ET1161-03 (it’s an emachines)
Motherboard Model: ECS MCP61PM-GM
Motherboard Chipset: nVidia nForce 6100-430

And this is the drive that’s in there now. It’s a SATA drive.
Drive Model: INULO W5IVS5UBGDA3

I have a Pioneer 110 but it’s EIDE so it’s in an enclosure. It’s also burning with several restart errors.

THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!!

@ tinpanalley,

It would be helpful if you fully explained in detail exactly what “the drive seems to not burn properly with Decrypter and IMGburn” problem actually is.

What Error Narrative and/or Error Code are your receiving?

Provide the Media MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) (Example: TYGO2) of the blank Media you are using. To obtain Media MID of the blank Media you are using suggest using a software utility similar to DVDInfo (http://www.dvdinfopro.com).

Also provide Decrypter and/or IMGburn Burning logs of “the drive seems to not burn properly with Decrypter and IMGburn” burning events.

I’m sorry, you’re absolutely right. Should have left a log.
My media isn’t the problem. I only buy the best Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden products based on their ids.

But here’s a log I just got from burning a game with IMGburn. Exactly the same errors happen on DVD Decrypter, but they happen more often. There are usually 10-12 retries, all with the same errors.

Hope that helps better. This particular burn was done with my EIDE Pioneer 110D that sits in a USB enclosure due to a lack of Molex and EIDE connectors in my tower. It’s all SATA in there. Again, if it looks like my drive is at fault here, rather than a settings issue, could you please recommend one of either the pioneer 216 or the Optiarc AD-7200S? Or perhaps another which is better? Burning and reading of games, music and DVD is priority for me as well as availability of Region Free RPC1 firmware.

Here’s my log from IMGBurn burning a game on Verbatim. This is typical if my errors but Decrypter seems to retry more (10-12 times) before finally finishing. However, even with successful completion, the consoles still have trouble reading these burns. The drives in these consoles are all fine.

Here’s the log. Thank you! The errors are at about 15:58:00

Here’s the results of that scan. Doesn’t appear to be anything wrong.


Crap external usb. That is the problem here.

[quote=chef;2206017]Crap external usb. That is the problem here.[/quote] Could be.

I have found my Pioneer DVD burners (111,112,115,116) to be temperamental and sometimes require write-retries when used in USB/FireWire enclosures. I don’t have a Pioneer DVR-110.

That is why I really dislike usb. It’s like an double-headed zombie because of the silly implementation of power management and as follow up such connection problems…
