Sony Vaio Dvd Drive

#1

Not sure where to post this, but here goes.

I have have a vaio laptop, and im not having much luck burning dvds, I have been using anydvd and clone dvd, but all the discs I produce have errors on then, (playback breaks up on part of the disc)

Now I am using Verbs, I have tried + and - and both produce poor burns, I have scanned the discs in Nero speed 4.51 and they look awful, ( not to sure what Im looking at ) but at the start of the scan I have peaks in the top and bottom window, then things settle down then about half way the peaks shoot up again, I have tried different speeds, no better,

Do all the software progs that write dvds write in the same way, I am thinking about using different software, any ideas? :confused:

Thanks

Right I have just tried some Ridata 2x -Rw, which I would use in my Pioneer dvd recorder, burnt them at 2x, (took ages) but it plays perfectly, no break up of picture at all, Dont understand?

Do you think I should try the Verbs again and reduce write speed to maybe x4
Even though they are rated at 16x,

Its not a major issue I do all of my burning on pcs but it would be nice if I could use my laptop once in a while.

Thanks for ANY info :slight_smile:

Try the Verbs at 12x (then if that doesn’t help, try 8x - though usually I wouldn’t go lower than 12x). I don’t know what drive you have (or firmware), so that’s the best I can do.

Maybe someone else knows a solution based on the info you’ve given. :slight_smile:

Thanks for that, I think the max speed of the drive is x8, it`s a Sony D56A drive, latest firmware

Yep, apparently it’s an 8x drive…so looks like 8x is the speed to do them at, hopefully :bigsmile:

Other than that…try some other Verbs, but 8x rated :wink:

Maybe thats it, if I get some 8x Verbs I could also try them at 4x if I had a problem, thanks for advice :wink:

I have just found some old Verb 4x, packed in dvd jewel cases, movie reel ones, so not printable, will try one tomorrow


#8

The Verb movie reel disc, no go, burnt about1/3rd then an error message poped up saying media error code 10 11 12 in Clone dvd.

I have just ordered a spindle of 100 TYs from SVP I hope these prove to the best dvds I have ever used, because at £40 a pop there not cheap
