I know there are many many threads talking about the same subject, but I have to post this new thread to warn you:
DO NOT USE INCD FOR IMPORTANT DATA.
I was here once, I was heard all the experienced people talked about InCD the way I talk about it today, but I didn’t give my attention until last night, I was trying to move my C# projects & psd documents to my Verbatim DVD+RW 4X, everything is going its way, the File Moving Dialog Box disappeared when the progress indicator completely moved to the right, I was pretty sure the files were moved to the disc when I saw them appeared on it.
Although I wasn’t hurry to eject the disc out, suddenly, a balloon poped-up from the system tray says “Delayed Write Failed”*, and then the disc became read only and the last psd file I moved has been wiped out, disappeared without a trace. I’ve been terribly shocked, because this file means too much to me, If it gone, I’ll pessimistically live the rest of my life in desperation. God have mercy, I recovered my file via RecoverNT, but wasted 2 hours 23 Minutes of my precious time.
Considering it may be a disc related issue, I changed the recordable media to slower speed, better quality and higher reliability TDK DVD-RW 2X, and you know Pioneers are better when use -R(W), sadly, even I changed the disc, the same thing happened again when I copying files to the TDK for the sixth or seventh time. This forced me to do a widely diagnostication across various hardware platform to make sure this is a hardware related issue or not. with 8 writers & 17 different Â±RW discs of 12 brands, the result pains me: on every disc-burning platform without Mt. Rainier support, if you want, you can make it happened, this could be happened even using a writer with Mt. Rainier Write capability. So, this is not an accident, this is the shortage of packet writing, both software & hardware weren’t mature enough or well-developed for packet writing, you can’t prevent it to be happened, therefore, you have to:
● Aware the risk of the use of the packet writing software if you feel you can stick it, and try your best not to bother the Writer till it finished its work for awhile. Or you can:
● Abandon the packet writing software you’ve probably had enough for loss of data, and use less inconvenient but more reliable multisession instead. If you have enough budget and you’re not sensitive about compatibilities, you can get rid of all these mess by:
● Put your money into DVD-RAM, You’ll have your Happily-Ever-After.
