I am using anydvd and nero with a mad dog 7 in 1 16x external drive. I was using clone dvd successfully and then when I used some fujifilm dvd-r I got coaster after coaster. I went back to the maxwell that I was having success with and coaster after coaster. clone dvd kept giving me the “bad media” error. I updated mad dog’s firmware and no help there either. I have run a simulation on Nero and here is the log, your help would be greatly appreciated.

from what i understand, your drive = OEM NEC ND-3500AG. you might want to check the NEC forum for ways of flashing the drive with other firmwares. also, Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR) is almost always a media problem, either the drive don’t like the media or the disc itself is crap, or you are attempting to burn too fast for that disc.


#3

thanks so much, let me check out those options - hope something works out from there.


#4

Prior to switching to the Fujifilm DVD-R media, did you change any settings either with your burning software or with your drive?


#5

No, I didn’t change any settings. The Maxwell fifty pack I had, maybe I had three coasters and at first I chalked it up to me needing to restart the computer because once I did the burn was fine. The fujifilms also burned the first three discs I backed up, but then coaster after coaster. Same thing for the last couple of Maxwell’s I had (so that’s why I didn’t think it was the media itself). I have a new pack of maxwell’s “made in japan” and I ordered Taiyo Yuden 4x dvd-r from a reputable online place, so we’ll see once those are delivered. I was wondering if it would be worth it to uninstall the drive and software and reinstall it.


#6

Stop using coffee beans then :slight_smile:

sorry i just had to do it :slight_smile:


#7

okay so I finally got a successful backup on the maxwell dvd-r :bow: . I turned off my screensaver, virus protection, and firewall and reduced speed down to 2x and finally got a burn and the dvd seems to be working fine. Also I read that I shouldn’t do too many back to back burns. So hopefully little to no coasters as long as I keep doing this. For the coasters, would i still be able to burn on them if it never got past 0% (clone dvd just did that “erasing” thing and then gave bad media error)?

Anyways thanks for your help G)-(osters and Mike A :bigsmile: .


#8

turning off the background apps was good because i noticed it said 70% of your memory was in use, and thats a bad thing especially for external drives. I also noticed that the drive was trying to do something with the book-type. maybe that had something to do with it as well. Since your drive will burn dvd+r as a dvd-rom maybe you should try some +r discs. Changing the book-type makes the discs as compatible as -r discs.
