SH-S203D I/O Error

Hi everyone,

I have been having a problem with my Samsung SH-S203D DVD burner. Whenever I try to verify an iso that I have burned with ImgBurn, I get an I/O error… Timeout on Logical Unit. This always happens at about the 70%-90% mark, regardless of the iso that I try to burn. The burnt DVD always seems to work fine… but I just find it strange that I have this problem when verifying the burn. I had a similar problem when verifying with Nero as well, and when using CDCheck. I also sometimes have problems with reading burnt DVDs on this drive which work perfectly on other computers. I am using decent quality DVDs, have the latest firmware and BIOS and am burning at either 4x or 8x, with the same results.

I appreciate any advice! I’m not sure how much of the ImgBurn log I should put in here, so here is all of it:

Hi, guys.
I have the same problem with my S203D. I use Philips DVD+RW and Verbatium DVD+R and at different stages of verification it shows me this error…
My firmware is patched SB01.
It’s really awful…

Hi,

could you please both post, what Sata controller is used, and how it is configured in Bios Setup.
Maybe this is a controller or driver related issue.

Michael

Hi,

My mobo is Asus P5K-e/Wifi-AP, so SATA controller is ICH9. Device Manager shows I’m using Intel® ICH9R/DO/DH SATA AHCI Controller Driver Version 8.2.0.1001. BIOS version is 1013.

SATA Configuration:
Configure SATA as [AHCI]
Hard Disk Write Protect [Disabled]
SATA Detect TimeOut (Sec) [35]

AHCI Settings:
AHCI CD/DVD Boot Timeout [15]

Thanks for your help!

Nic.

Not ICH9 but ICH9[B]R[/B].
Is AnyDVD running? Then disable it.

Hi,[quote=Nic_R;2081577]
SATA Configuration:
Configure SATA as [AHCI][/quote]You might try IDE mode if available.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have it installed but not running.

[quote=mciahel;2081846]Hi,You might try IDE mode if available.

Thanks also, but I have already tried IDE mode and have the same problem.

Hi again!
My mobo is Gigabyte P35-DS4 (biso ver. f12) and my SATA controler is ICH9R. I have IDE mode by default but I will try to switch it to the other mode…
I don’t have any Slysoft software on my PC, but I use Alcohol 52% ver. 1.9.7.6221.
This problem appears in both Windows XP 32 and 64 bit.
