Weird burning problem

Hello, I am hoping someone can help me with a weird problem I am having.

I am using Nero to try to burn an audio CD and every single time the burn ends it comes up with 7 buffer underrun errors, which isnt the weird part. The weird thing is, when you look at the ring of discoloration on the disc, it always seems to be trying to burn everything in the same spot…like there is only a thin ring on the cd where it was burned.

When I start the burn it hangs up at 7% for like 30 seconds before continueing on every time.

Also none of these CD’s will play in any CD player…

I’ve tried 3 different DVD burners on this machine, and it does the same thing no matter what. I’ve also checked to make sure DMA was on, updated the DVD burner firmware, uninstalled Nero, bought a new version of Nero and installed it, I’ve tried burning at fast and slow speeds, and every single thing else I can think of.

I’m hoping someone here might have some idea what could be causing this.

Here is my latest burn log from Nero:

Create a .cue file with ImgBurn & then try to burn an Audio CD with ImgBurn.
Post the log from that .

If ImgBurn fails then it may be the media & you should use better quality media.
You did try the burn at 32X as best as I can tell . So you might slow it down.

It is the drive or the media & it’s sometimes hard to tell which .
You drive is reporting that all is OK when it does the burn but this is sometimes incorrect .
When it tried to read with Verify what was just burned it couldn’t .
Since you’ve tried 3 different burners I suspect the media so try a different brand .

Also you burned an .iso which might or might not be a good one.
My suggestion was to create a .cue file with ImgBurn of the .mp3s in the Nero log.
Then burn that with ImgBurn . Give me a bit & I will create one on a CD-RW & post the log. That will give you something to compare .

I’m unfamiliar with Imgburn…I just downloaded it when you requested the log…

ok I figured out how to make a .cue file with ImgBurn…I will post log when it is complete.

Regardless of what the log reported at the end .
Will it play ?

Next time try with Verify unchecked.

It is looking more like the drives you are using don’t like the media .
They report they are burning OK but don’t want to Verify which is a read type function .
Will ImgBurn Read the burned disc in Read mode ?

You are also still writing at Max speed 32x . Try 16x .

You might try cleaning the drive but since you have tried 3 it’s hard to beleive all of them had a dirty lens.
This is the ImgBurn log of a successful burn to a CD -RW for you to compare.

No they wont play…or rather they wont play correctly…I got a couple of them to play 1 or 2 songs, and if I put the burned CD back in the burner, it shows like the CD is blank, even though there is clearly a ring on the CD where info has been burned…it’s about a 3/4 of an inch ring of discoloration…not wide enough to be a good burn, but a burn nontheless.

One thing I noticed on my ImgBurn log and even my Nero log…

no matter what speed I set it to burn at, it always tries to burn at 16x, reguardless…

even though my writer is a 52x, and my discs are 52x.

I think that has a lot to do with whatever is going on here.

What were the 3 different burners you’ve tried? Your logs just show the one ‘TS-H653G’ model. If they aren’t too dissimilar, that could explain why they’re all failing in the same way - although it is unlikely!

I think the best course of action right now is to follow Cholla’s suggestion of trying different media. Get yourself some nice ‘Taiyo Yuden’ discs and try again. They’re sometimes sold under the ‘Verbatim’ brand name (I’ve got some ‘Pastel’ ones), otherwise look for real Taiyo Yuden ones or more lately, Victor JVC.

I was specifically wanting to know about the 2 ImgBurn written CD’s.
Are they like what is posted in the quote?

In your Nero log it looks like 32x is what is attempted & I saw no reference to 16x .
Or the actual speed if it wasn’t 32x .
On your 52x drive & disc capability . Good luck on that I’ve never seen a drive that does that regardless of what the manufacturer says.

Turn off Verify for now .
Did the ImgBurn hang at CD-Text ?
It sometimes does if your drive doesn’t support CD-Text depending on how you use it in the .cue.
So try a slower burn.

2 of the drives are the same…TS-H653G the 3rd is an ASUS DRW-24B1ST and the reason the log only shows the one is I physically switched them out, they are all internal drives.

My normal set up, when everything is working correctly, is 2 hard drives and 2 dvd burners, a TS-H653G as the master burner, and the Asus as the slave.

I think I will try new media, it will take me a few days to get some new discs though.

Yeah, they came out the same, nothing will play, small ring of discoloration, and for some reason, the DVD player still reads them as blank. :frowning:

Yeah, it says it was attempted at 32, but when it is actually trying to burn it always shows 16x or 16.1x at the most.

I’ll try this and report back.

I suspect the media is part of the problem. If a drive is asked to burn a disc at 32x, it’s built-in error detection will slow the burn down to try to avoid creating a coaster with poor quality media. A good quality disc will normally handle the requested burn speed without slowing down.

That is not to say that the drive will be willing to try burning it at 4x if that is not supported in the drive’s firmware. Can you post a burn graph(not log) from an attempt to burn at 32x?

Ok I have an update…

I found an old disc lying around…it was one of the Memorex Cool Colors style. It did burn successfully…although I set it to burn at max speed, and it still only burned at 16x.

Also when I play it back, all tracks will play, BUT they have a lot of noise in them…they sound scratchy like I’m playing them on a phonograph.

I’m still excited though that it actually burned and completed…I’ll post the log.

Excellent :clap:

Looks like you are on the right track with better media. It looks possible that choosing 16x write speed for your discs may be your best for future burns with your rig.
