TuffDisc 16x DVD-R error issues

vbimport

#1

Hi everyone. Im new here. Was hoping someone could shed some light onto the problem im faced with.

I bought some 16x DVD-R TuffDiscs the other day. Normally I use Datawrite 8x DVD-r and have never had any problems burning a thing on to them, but since using these new DVD-r’s I keep on getting “burning failed” messages.

I’ve used the Nero disc tools and everything seems fine along with the drive info tool and my burner (as far as i can make out) is new enough to deal with this.

thanks!

Hi SquareEyes and welcome to CD Freaks :slight_smile:

Can you post a log from a failed burn please? That might help us find the problem for you.

oh…i’ve just upgraded to nero 8 too by the way in order to see if that would resolve the problem…

…it didnt :frowning:

:slight_smile:

not too fond of nero 8 though…seems too easy

CMC.MAG AM3 media are probably not supported by your rather old drive, maybe the newest firmware would help you:

Thanks for the quick reply pepst

I will try a little later and report back.

http://www.cdr.cz/dvd_rekordery/nec/firmware/nd3500/2347_FW_ND-3500A_win21B.zip[/quote] Correct - the 2.16 firmware doesn’t have a write strategy for CMC MAG. AM3 media but the much newer 2.1B firmware does have a write strategy. I would also suggest flashing to 2.1B firmware.

[quote=SquareEyes;2071433]do i really have to do as the instructions say? lol.[/quote] In my opinion, the long and complicated process described by NEC is just a way to cover their a** if something goes wrong. I have never had to disconnect anything or go to safe mode when flashing this or any other drive.

With all drives except the Optiarc AD-5170…7173 series, I have also never had to go from DMA to PIO mode for the firmware flash to work.

Whether you chose to take the (very small) risk, of simply running the fimware flashing program, or follow the long complicated procedure, is up to you.

UPDATE: Just dl liggy and dees binflashing program, flashed the drive, rebooted my machine and I’m now burning away on those mentioned DVD’s

Thanks a lot for the help guys - j00 all r0x0rz!!

:P:P
