Computer: Dell XPS 600 3.2G HT Dual 2G Mem with Windows XP MCE 2005 (clean install)
DVD Burner: Philips DVD+-RW DVD8701 5D24 (ATA)
Media: Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 8x TYG02, label certified
Note: I believe the Philips DVD8701 is a rebadged BenQ 1640, imgBurn will allow you to do booktyping on the BenQ tab.
I was wondering if anyone can confirm this and maybe recommend a firmware upgrade?
I burned 6 DVD's with the same ISO file, 3 with Nero and 3 with imgBurn.
The Nero ones played perfectly on my LG 7832 Faroudja player.
All 3 imgBurn DVD's skip and freeze every 30s-2min.
Measures taken, before the burn:
- Clean install of Windows XP MCE + imgBurn + Nero burner software only (not the hole package)
- Uninstalled/installed the IDE/ATA Controller, in Device Manager (set to Ultra DMA Mode 2)
What do I need to do in order to fix the problem? I do not want to change the DVD brand, I used TY for a long time and they burned perfectly always.
Also, why we cannot see the other devices that you can burn ISO files with them... for example my first drive is a CD burner, second one is the DVD burner and the third one is Virtual CloneDrive.
Here it is the imgBurn log, that failed 3 times:
