What brand of blank discs are you using?
Exactly how do the drives fail: do they get halfway through THEN fail, or do they not detect discs at all, orâ€¦?
Are you only using 1 drive at a time as you test the drives in the duplicator, or are you using multiple drives at a time?
And to update firmware, unless the duplicator has some special function, you’ll be connecting them one-by-one. You’ll preferably stay with the same “line” of firmware that’s already present on the drive ï¼ and by that, I mean, they could be specialized for use in duplicators, or they could be retail firmware, or they could be some other OEM firmware type.
â€¦But no sense in updating if it won’t solve the initial problem.[/QUOTE]
I am using aone plus double layer gold edition 8x 8.5gb DL dvd discs!
Top disc rarely got a fail until I got the dup!
Its real odd
I burned 7 and all 7 work,
next day, I do the same and 5 will burn
next day 3/4/5 will work with the duplicator saying fail (halfway fail)!
Its driving me nuts.
I followed the dups guide and its does mention the drives latest firmware, but what is the latest firmware?
I have updated the controller to the latest version, so sad, that I actually updated the firmware from 2012 to 2014 in stages and in date order to make sure I did not miss a single update. Each update added bug fixes etc.
Controller working fine as is the control to operate the menus on the lcd screen?
What would be a easy course of action to test each drive?
I could take them all out and put them in my PC and burn a disc to test, maybe?
or like you mention, test each one, one by one in the dup?
I sure its something real simple
