    Verbatim

    Can you give me some advise, I have to choose between two sites https://www.verbatim.com/subcat/optical-media/cd/datalife-plus-cd-recordable/ and https://www.verbatim.com/subcat/optical-media/cd/datalife-plus-cd-recordable/ I only need the verbatim data live plus media not a lot 5 is enough. Thanks for helping me
  3. Today
  4. Well, I booted into Safe Mode to test the Mercury Pro's unable to detect a powered on enclosured drive until the USB cable is removed and reinserted. I knew it wouldn't do any good since it didn't do any good on the factory default partition. And, I was right, as is usually the case.
  5. It's not really a burning issue on the Mercury. The Mercury has problems detecting when media is inserted. It doesn't detect it's there. Except for the DVD+RW burn where WriteIn never took place at the start of the burn, so the burning speed is not an issue. The Vantec has some problems completing BD-R burns, but the Mercury does not. Which leads me more and more to believe it's the Vantec being problematic over the Mercury, despite its somewhat spotty behavior. However, both enclosures having problems leads me to wonder, though. Yet, each enclosure has different issues.
  6. Are you burning at max speed? Try a lower one . . . Regards

    Touche away?

    I thought it was, too! And I haven't seen a Touche Turtle cartoon since college, back when it reran briefly on the Family Channel. That would have been sometime between 1992 and 1996. So, about 25 years.
  8. I don't know what I'd be looking for in the BIOS. A BIOS update was done on the 1st. I think something could be up in that. I didn't have the disconnecting the USB cable issue before that. Safe mode wouldn't really help since the issue is random. I wouldn't know if I got no bad results was the result of booting into safe mode or simply because I hadn't encountered the issue yet. I could test safe mode for the USB cable issue, I suppose. I have tested it by restoring my PC to its factory default image and the USB cable issue was still there.
  9. Surely enclosures are ok Did you have a look to the BIOS settings?, maybe something is different now. Did you try to boot on safe mode and burn then? (use a rewritable disc) Regards

    DTS FILE BURNING TO DTS AUDIO CD

    Can you use MediaInfo on the wav file one and post the details about it please? If the DTS is a 'raw' format (no headers etc to remove), you could try naming it as such. If the file has a .RAW extension, ImgBurn shouldn't try to process it via DirectShow / ACM. It'll then just read 2352 bytes from the file, ask the drive to burn it to a sector 'as-is' and then repeat over and over again until the end of the file/disk.

    indeed it is.

    Touche away?

    Saw "Touche away" on the start menu's welcoming text. LUK, is that a bizarre reference to Touche Turtle? If so, I haven't seen a Touche Turtle cartoon in like 25 years.
  13. Yesterday
  14. The only thing I know from the questions you asked is it is 12v. I have tried 2 different enclosures with different results. One is the Vantec NST-536S3-BK NexStar DX model here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MRUN0HQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and the other is just called an Other World Computing Mercury Pro one here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XRCCV44/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The Vantec was working fine initially on 2 different Dell XPS models, but now BD-R was failing nearly every time. The Mercury Pro one does better except for it not detecting some things being inserted like I said. And the Mercury Pro needs its USB cable removed and reinserted now every time the power is turned off to the drive before Windows recognizes the drive. The problem with the Mercury Pro is the power supplies don't seem to be very good. The first one I had stopped sending power to the enclosure after 2 months. OWC sent me a replacement for it, though. It could be the Pioneer being in the Vantec that is problematic. It does seem to work better in the Mercury Pro. Or it could be the Vantec has gone bad but given I'm also having some iffy results now on the Mercury Pro with my LG BD burner, I'm not entirely sure. I didn't have much problems before on my Dell XPS 8700 PC. It's on this Dell XPS 8930 that I've begun having issues. And you need enclosures for that model because Dell removed half height bays from the towers.
  15. The enclosure power supply must have 12V for sure, but which is its maximum amperage?. The Pioneer 2209 needs 12V to operate, but same question, which amperage does it need?. You can find that info in the labels of each one (output). Which is the brand and model of the enclosure? is it UASP capable? and your system? Regards

    DTS FILE BURNING TO DTS AUDIO CD

    Well, as for direct DTS input, I wouldn't know, but I'd think if you converted the DTS to FLAC, you'd have the same audio details without loss and wouldn't have to worry if it's 44.1k 16 bit. You'd have to install the filters for FLAC, but I use FLAC all the time because it's lossless. Even when I have an MP3 that won't import, I convert it to FLAC, even though I'm not gaining anything above the source MP3 attributes.

    DTS FILE BURNING TO DTS AUDIO CD

    I'm not an expert on the DTS disc, but it was created around the turn of the century as a method of recording 5.1 sound on standard 650MB cd. A standard cd player will reproduce a potentially speaker destructive stereo white noise, but this is actually a 5.1 dts encoded signal that can be decoded on the proper dvd player / receiver combination. I have several of these in .WAV files, and a few that are in .DTS files. I'm able to burn the .WAV files with no problem. They play 5.1 sound as expected. I'm able to burn .DTS files that are sampled at 44.1k, but not the higher sampled 96k files. That makes me think that the sample rate is the problem. Here's a line from the log for one .DTS file that I've burned successfully: I 15:43:53 Writing Track 1 of 1... (AUDIO/2352, DTS, LBA: 0 - 16949) Does that mean that .DTS is recognizable for DirectShow, and therefore a different filter is not the answer? Also, does my audio file have to be 44.1k 16 bit? Thanks all

    I do prefer DVD+RW over DVD-RW but DVD-R to DVD+R. DVD-R is slightly larger and while it doesn't matter with modern players, DVD-R was more universally accepted in players. Once DVD+R became an accepted standard, it was more universally adopted by manufacturers. DVD+RW has faster write and erase speeds and the LeadIn writing doesn't take as long. And, at first, BD didn't win because there was another format war with HD-DVD!

    Yup, but they won my mind. DVD+r is for me far superior then dvd-r. And to add more confusion +r was then again abandoned for BD's :-P Damn people, make up your ffing mind :-D Verstuurd vanaf mijn Nexus 7 met Tapatalk

    I would be curious to see proof of CD+R because it never existed. CD-R and CD-ROM were all there were, at first. Then, after DVD-R, DVD-ROM, and DVD-RAM came out, a group of companies decided they wanted in on the profit and created their own standard: DVD+R and DVD+RW. Just to add more confusion and restart the format wars.
