    bd-re in bdmv format - works on pc, not on ps3

    Yes, I just let ImgBurn do the formatting. Always a full format (not a quick format), using the ImgBurn defaults (ie, spare areas disabled).

    bd-re in bdmv format - works on pc, not on ps3

    Seems like an odd problem, ockevin. All I can tell you is that I've never had a problem using ImgBurn and BD-RE discs (Verbatim and TDK) with my PS3. I've never burned from an ISO - always just the BDMV folder - but the PS3 has read every disc just fine.
  3. This will surprise no one, but you were 100% right:-) Enabling BD-R Verify Not Required did the trick: burned flawlessly at the chosen speed (2x), not buffer problems anywhere. Thanks, Lightning.
  4. You've changed that, enabled it again. I'm not sure what you mean: I didn't change it. It's the same on both burns. But if enabling it will make a difference, I'll give it a go:-)

    Write speed miscompare bug?

    I just had this same problem with an LG drive (BE06) and a BD-R, reported here: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=13129 Thought I should post here in case anyone else hits the same issue.
  6. As expected, I tried another disc set to 2x speed and it worked just fine - no issue with the device buffer whatsoever. The only problem was the disc actually burned at 1x speed (and man, was it slow) even though I'd set it to 2x speed. I'm guessing my LG drive has the same write speed miscompare bug as reported here: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=11300 Here's the log, just for kicks:-) I 12:07:29 Operation Started!

  7. Thanks, Lightning. I'll give it a go and report back.
  8. Yes, it's a USB burner but it's reported as an ATA drive because it's running in a virtual machine (VMWare Fusion) and the virtual machine is set to see it as a physical drive (setting it as a USB drive just doesn't work). Looks like I should probably just slow the burns down to 2x, although as I said, even though the device buffer jumps around the burns have been flawless. Would it be better (safer) for the drive and the burns to do that? Oh, and Merry Christmas to everyone!
  9. Here's the log and the graph data (as a png file). As I said, the log is fine. Shows no problems at all. The graph data shows the device buffer jumping around.

  10. Hi guys, I'm not having problems with my burns, so this is more a question out of curiosity than anything. I've noticed the device buffer of my LG BE06 (an external USB burner) goes up and down like crazy while it's burning Verbatim BD-R discs. Note that it's only the device buffer - the other buffer stays at 100% - but it dips to around 20% or so then rises again to 80% and keeps jumping around for the duration of the burn. As I said, I have absolutely no problems with the burn: nothing is reported in the ImgBurn log, the discs verify and play just fine. Everything is fine. But I'm wondering if it's anything to worry about or of it's just normal behaviour for the drive. Do some drives (especially USB drives) just work that way? Is it just doing a bunch of OPC calculations? Is it because it's also verifying as it burns (BD-R Verify Not Required is disabled)? What's going on?
  11. I'll defrag it and see what happens. Unfortunately OS X doesn't have a defragger built in to the system (because it doesn't "need" a defragger, they say), and you can't defrag while you're booted from the drive, which means booting from an external or a DVD, crossing your fingers and hoping. It's not the simple task it should be. Anyway, assuming it's a problem with fragmentation, why does it only affect BD-R burns and not DVD-R and DVD+R DL burns? Is it simply the size and number of the files being thrown around?

    Device Buffer Problem - BD-RE

    It's weird that the log doesn't show any errors (like "Waiting for buffers to recover") but it does take an awful long time to burn. Maybe it's the media. I notice you're using the LG BD-RE disc. I got the same disc with my LG drive and couldn't even format it. I've since read that they're terrible discs. Maybe the disc, even though it worked before, has had it. Can you try another disc?
  13. That's actually quite fast for USB, maybe your machine/controller can't handle more? The best way to test would be to use Discovery mode as that rules the 'source' drive out (it's all done from memory) - but that means wasting a disc on what is essentially 'nothing' (it just writes zeroes to the entire discs). Hi Lightning, The problem is, I get the same error regardless of burn speed: if I burn the same files to a BD-RE at 2x, the buffers start to go on me at the very same spot. I'd be happy to try Discovery mode and waste a disc if it was only a DVD-R, but BD-R discs are so damn expensive that the cheapskate in me can't bear the thought of throwing one away:-) In any case, I think it could be a problem with the hard disc, although I have no idea why. I just tried burning a BD-RE from a USB external (also HFS+ formatted, using MacDrive so XP can "see" it) and it burned beautifully at 2x - I sat there and watched it and the buffers (device and disc) didn't move off 100% for a second. The log and IBG file are attached. I was trying to avoid burning from a USB disk to a USB burner (I'd read somewhere that it wasn't a good idea), but it worked flawlessly. I'd still like to know why it worked though. The USB external had a lot of free space (nearly 400GB) and the internal only had around 40GB free (still, I would have thought that was plenty). Maybe the internal drive is just prone to fragmentation, whereas the external isn't? Any ideas? I 11:51:10 ImgBurn Version 2.5.0.0 started!

  14. I will try:-) I also thought I might try burning from an external USB hard drive. I was a bit worried about burning from one USB device to another, but I figure it's worth a shot.
  15. Looking at the log and IBG file and thinking about this some more, I still have no idea why everything starts out fine then deteriorates towards the end of the burn. Is it possible I'm running out of virtual memory? I'm only running a small (6GB) Boot Camp partition specifically for burning with ImgBurn and only have around 2GB free for swap space. Could that be the problem? Or is it possible that my processor (a 2GHz Core Duo) just isn't fast enough to handle everything? I'd really like to fix this somehow.
