ive had this error since about a week when burning dvd movie backups to vertabim 16x dvd+r (written @ 8x) and ridisc 8x dvd-r (written @ 4x)

it all used to work perfect, i havent changed firmware or hardware config in meanwhile
i also didnt install anything special that i know of

the first time i got the error, i tried again with another dvd, and writing succeeded, but now it doesnt seem to want to succeed anymore
even simulation failed

can anyone plz tell me wtf is goin on?

is my benq broke allready?

The only thing I can see is that your getting very close to the limit of disc capacity with this log.

Generally I’d burn at the rated media speed rather than cutting it back like you do. A 16x dvd will burn best at 12x/16x generally rather than 8x.

I can’t see that if the Benq is failing why it should fail just on the lead out so I’d doubt that possibility.

i first wrote them at 12x for the vertabim and 8x for the ridisc
but since i started getting problems, i tried turning speed down (i dont really mind a couple of extra minutes)

what do you mean with “I’d doubt that possibility”
u dont believe that it failed :wink:

i can assure u that it did

not that the dvd doesnt work (it seems to work just fine), but if it fails i write it again till it doesnt fail anymore, just to be sure nothing went wrong somewhere
i re-wrote the dvd in my parents pc, there it didnt fail
they have the same benq dvdwriter as i do (but then retail instead of the black oem that i have)
so it aint the image thats faulty

anyone?

Apart from the advice already given, all I can think of is two things:

Enabling DMA for all your optical drives (thread on doing that here). However, I don’t use a RAID setup, so I don’t know how helpful that thread will be…

Freeing up some memory.

Also, at a pinch, I see you use nVidia IDE drivers - you might want to try going back to the M$ ones (again, since you use RAID, not sure if that’s possible).

Just a few thoughts, hope it helps! :slight_smile:

I have had the same problems. Could not resolve it.
I hope the new version 7.0.5.4 will solve it now.

thx 4 the advice

but
it worked good before

nothing really changed

and then it slowly worsened

dma is enabled for many years allready
this is not my first optical device :smiley:

memory shortage certainly wasnt the problem either

it doesnt happen alot i even get to the 1GB ram
and if it this: there should still be something like buffer underun protection right? or doesnt that work during leadin and leadout?

I don’t doubt your experience with optical devices! :bigsmile:

But I guessed at the DMA thing 'cause I saw this in your log:

DiskPeripheral : NVIDIA STRIPE 465.77G nvraid Port 0 ID 1 DMA: Off
DiskPeripheral : NVIDIA MIRROR 111.79G nvraid Port 0 ID 2 DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : BENQ DVD DD DW1620 nvatabus Port 1 ID 0 DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : AOPEN DVD1648/AAP PRO nvatabus Port 1 ID 1 DMA: Off

DiskPeripheral : SAMSUNG HD120IJ nvatabus Port 3 ID 0 DMA: Off
DiskPeripheral : SAMSUNG HD120IJ nvatabus Port 3 ID 2 DMA: Off

Of course, there is the possibilty of Nero misreporting that!

I just mentioned the memory thing since every little suggestion helps - if only just to eliminate stuff (as with the memory thing) and narrow down the culprit. :wink:

good point :wink:

but all my HDs are SATA300
and both the dvdrom and the dvdwriter are udma2 according to the device manager

so im afraid the problem aint that easy :frowning:

Your DMA in yoru BIOS its turned off. Some burners need DMA turned on so when the burning process slows down the DMA buffers can be used. email me for help I dont usually go on this site. ryan@keckslist.org

i have 7.0.5.4 and havent seen the problem since

havent burned that many dvds either

hope its gone now

dma is on for all devices btw

I’m now getting the “Unspecified Recorder Error” from Nero 6 (latest ver) when closing a dvd-VR disc that I burned on a SONY DVD recorder RDR-VX500. I closed quite a few with the Pioneer DVR-111D up until this error message that I had burned on the SONY recorder.

I’ve noticed one change. When getting the disc info on discs were the error doesn’t come up I see one session and two tracks. One for the “index” (unknown mode 1) and one for the video track (data mode 1). For example, I just tried to close a video dvd that had 3,315 MB capacity in use and 1,174 MB available capacity. Book type DVD-R and showing 7 tracks even though I have three programs recorded. One 56.55 mins, the other 24.54 mins and the last one 56.51 mins. and I got the error at 10% and couldn’t finalize it on the Pioneer. I then finalized it on the SONY recorder.
I noticed that once I try to close it on the Pioneer and finish it on the SONY DVD Recorder finalizing takes 1 minute instead of 3.5 minutes that it would take on on the SONY DVD recorder only.

SO my questions is why is Nero “disc info” reporting various tracks wheresas before it would only show two no matter how many programs where recorded on the dvd and thus producing the “Unspecified Recorder Error” when closing the disc?
