Sony 710A - PMA update failure

vbimport

#1

Hi,

I got my new Sony 710A & tried to burn a movie with DVDShrink 3.2 & Nero 6.3 Sony edition, at the last step of Nero burning I got “PMA update failure”. The media which I used was Maxell 8x DVD-R, pls suggest what might be the cause of this kind of error?

This was the first DVD drive for me… would be helpful if I can get any clue & suggestions to overcome such errors…

I’ll take a shot. Most of the PMA failures are media related. Sony 710 does not support maxell media. Go to the Sony site for the drive and it will list media that is certified for this drive. I have had good luck with Verbatim and Prodisc using the same software as you.


#3

Another longshot could be to update your chipset drivers for your motherboard. But it sounds media related. There is also a new firmware for burner: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=1917

Hey all,

Had similar issues PMA Update failures, problem writing EndTrack. Device not ready.

  • Tried different media
  • Tried buring with Windows XP build in burn feature (instead op NERO)
  • Checked my UDMA settings in BIOS (and Windows) to see whether they were not disabled
  • Uninstalled my DRU 710a drive from the device manager
  • Reinstalled my chipset drivers
  • Took out my drive and hooked it up to another pc (worked! phew :wink: )
  • Tried flashing my drive to BYX4 (after 23% it goes wrong and I got the message: contact your vendor!)
  • Contacted sony Support on three different locations was redirected twice and was given a bs answer the third time…so much for good support
  • Changed my IDE cable

So…what worked for me was deleting my motherbord resources, memory controllers and IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. I think especially deleting the controllers provided the soultion. First I had one NVIDIA IDE controller (I have a soltek motherboard with NVIDIA Chipset) now I have three separate controllers. Flashing was no problem anymore and buring goes smoothly :smiley:

Spent about three hours finding the issue…hope it helps others to save some time!!

Tried all the same solutions as this guy, and he’s right, If you’re using nVidia nForce drivers, remove the IDE controller driver, and it will fix this, it has nothing to do with media types(unless of course the manufacturer specifically says so) It’s solely the IDE controller driver. Thnx dude for finding this out.

Hi,

My problem was solved by removing the NVidia drivers as well. Precisely removing the SM bus driver worked for me.
Thanks a million!

/Clayton

PS: other threads that might be useful for those having the same problem, but with different solution (and some useful info):



#7

how do you remove the drivers? I tried looking everywhere with no luck :frowning:
What is SM bus driver?
I have NVidia drivers, precisely version 71.25, 01/10/2005.

I tried burning a DVD-RW disk brand DataStream Professional and Nero failed. I have Nero Express 5.5.10.53

thanks in advance,
tony

Hello Tony,

I did the following: go to “Start”->“Configurations”->“Control Panel”->“Add or Remove Programs”.
Then find the entry for “NVIDIA Drivers” and click “Change/Remove” button.
Another window will pop up with the list of all NVidia drivers installed with a checkbox beside each one. Then the rest is self explanatory.

I removed all drivers but the sound driver, although I remember the one that was causing problems was the SM Bus Driver.

Please be aware that the namings that I put here may not be exactly the same as in your Windows since I did a rough translation from mine which is in Portuguese. :slight_smile:

Hope this helps.

Hi, Jus got the LG dvdRam-Recorder.(not exactly sure of model number but still able to read RW,write on + or - R dvds… etc…) The recent one with latest firmware being DL12.

I have had this same problem even though my chipset is Intel and no Nvidia drivers are installed. And whats worse is that it cant read Dvd+RW. However,
when i tried this drive on other computers and it worked perfectly. (Reading, writing perfectly on the Dvd+Rs i tried with on my com and the very same Dvd+RW)

I updated Intel Chipset drivers too. I’m using a P4PE motherboard (2002 i think) (the one without serial ports).

I’ve really next to given up all hope…reading all the forums and getting the same answers as changing media and removing the Nvidia drivers and such…

i would really appreciate anyone out there who could help me… =(


#10

hey there,
if you have an older Nvidia card, like one with 64MB whatever, DONT unistall the drivers, you will have no options to choose from, and after you restart your comp. you will swear for sure :wink: so … leave it like it is, my advice: 1.Change the DVD disc, throw them on the window of the store from where you bought them, i buyed a pack of Samsung ( big mistake !! ) so , sure … none of them were workin, i got the same error, so i repace the blank disk and were okay, oh yeah, windows xp super-professional still sucks, and if you have “.thumb” files then you have a problem :slight_smile:

so … break a leg, hehe

Hi all,

Removing the drivers seemed like a temporary (and wrong) way to go.

After a while, the problem start happening again.

Solution: I dumped my LG driver and bought a NEC ND-3550A.

Eventually I borrowed my LG driver to a friend who has a totally different HW configuration and he started having the same problem…

I believe different media quality has direct relation with this problem, yes. As well as different driver HW quality…
