  1. I’ve had this PS3 worked on by several different people, the board completely resoldered, everything you can possibly do... nobody has any idea why it just doesn’t effing work. I gave up on it like a decade ago and just stopped buying games for it. Wasting hundreds of dollars on a full Beatles rockband set I couldn’t use was the last straw. Luckily the ps1/ps2 backwards compatible games work fine, and I love a lot of those so... not all is lost, but anything PS3 is out of the question. Just not happening. Anyway, I digress… the cheapo ritek “smartbuy” dual-layers worked fine, burned both ISOs in that set I ripped, both discs burned (at 2X) and verified without any issue. So I guess the TDK rewritable really is toast, or at least one of the layers anyway. Mystery solved!
  2. The original fat release model 60gb PS3 was my primary Blu Ray player for well over 10 years. Since the day I bought it, it never worked to actually play a game (constant freezing/crashing after playing anything for more than a few minutes) but for movies, totally fine. I only retired it after getting an Xbox One X, for which I’m also re-buying some of the games I had for PS3 but couldn’t actually play…
  3. Not that my experience with anything Sony has been uniformly better, but they are responsible for most things pertaining to the Blu Ray standard… which, now that I think of it, might actually explain quite a bit I suppose the Verbatim disc could be worth a shot for $10. Worst case scenario it doesn’t write, Amazon will probably be quick to refund. But if it ends up going bad on me too down the line then it completely negates the cost benefit of having a rewritable disc versus just a spindle of cheap write-once dual layers… on that note, I just got a spindle of cheap “Smartbuy” brand BD-R DLs, Ritek manufactured stuff, so… I initiated the burn with one of these at 2X, let’s see if a write-once disc fares any better than the TDK rewritable.
  4. Thanks for the info and all the help, really appreciate it. I’m trying a different test right now, using Nero to try and write 50gb of random files to the disc and see if it verifies. Just to see if there is any similar error and rule out anything weird with that particular ISO. At only 2X speed, I should see what’s up in a couple of hours. Its interesting that these discs potentially fail and become unusable after some time. I purchased this particular disc in 2015. And like I said my last drive never had any trouble with it whatsoever, so... who knows. I’m willing to try out a new rewritable DL disc, is there one that’s currently considered “best” or at least most dependable? I’d guess something from Sony, but I don’t want to assume. I want something that’ll last a nice long time, though I guess the single layer rewritables probably last longer. I should probably just get one of those too. The WH16NS60 is my “dream” drive - planned to purchase it but haven’t gotten around to it, considered just biting the bullet when I needed a replacement but the prices on the 14NS40 were too low to ignore… will definitely be including one in my next PC tower though. Need to start backing up my meager 4K collection. Edit: Aaaaand the Nero test just failed too. So this should rule out the ISO. This time it didn’t even appear to write to the second layer, the burn failed immediately once it reached that point. ImgBurn on the other hand appeared as if it was burning away trouble-free, with no indication of a problem until the verification.

  7. since i I had the external version of this drive before and it worked fine with this very disc, it’s all so confusing... I know some drives are picky with some media, but considering this combo worked fine for me in the past I’m not sure what could account for the variation. If it turns out the drive is faulty or a lemon I’m afraid I’m now out a few months past when I purchased it… oy. in the meantime, here is the relevant portion of the log… sorry bout that…
  8. Hello! I’m new to the forum, I’ve tried searching for a similar situation but I couldn’t find anything so I joined and figured I’d ask. I’ll try to lay it all out as clearly as possible, as I’m honestly stumped. About 6 years ago, I purchased an LG BE14NU40. This is an external USB Blu-Ray drive, and I used it for all sorts of functions. Burning and ripping blu-rays, burning M-Disc DVDs, and - primarily - ripping CDs with EAC. I love this drive. To say it got heavy use would be a vast understatement. I got about 4 years of constant use out of this drive. Must have ripped thousands of CDs. Real robust, it showed no signs of stopping, just kept on ticking… that is, until a disc I was ripping went and EXPLODED inside the drive. Well, that was the end of that. I went for a while simply using another drive I had handy, until several months ago it’s laser gave out. Cheap little slim laptop drive but all I needed it to do was rip CDs, and it did the trick for a while. At that point, I decided to finally replace my beloved LG drive with one of the same. Well, mostly the same. This time I got the LG WH14NS40, the keen-eyed among you will note this is the same drive that’s used in the external enclosure of the BE14NU40 I previously owned. I would still primarily be using it externally with a laptop as usual, but I figured by going with this instead, I would be able to insert it into the drive bay of a future PC build. As of now I am using it with an externally powered USB adaptor, so it is basically being used as an external drive. So, summary so far... had BD drive, went boom, replaced with (pretty much) same drive. Onward we go. With my old drive, I would occasionally copy blu-rays, sometimes to a standard BD-R (or BD-R DL) to keep as a backup, and sometimes I would (gasp) download a rip and temporarily write it to a BD-RE DL just to watch it. I never had any trouble doing this. This isn’t something I’ve really tried at all in the past couple of years - certainly not since getting the new drive. But I recently got a hold of a very rare/expensive disc and wanted to burn a backup/playing copy. This is a process I’ve done before and know it worked. But before committing to disc, I figured I’d to a test burn with the new drive and a BD-RE DL just to be sure. First test, was ripping and burning an iso of a single layer BD. I then burned it to this BD-RE DL disc - obviously only writing to layer 0. Everything worked as expected, the verification was successful, and the disc played back in my player. Okay, so ripping BD worked, and burning BD worked... check. Now onto the rare disc I actually want to copy. This one is a 50gb dual-layer disc, so writing the ISO will actually require the BD-RE DL blank I’ve been using. Oh, and for the record - the disc is TDK branded, and is mostly white but has some sort of small Japanese writing on it. As does the jewel case it came in. All in Japanese. I don’t think this was intended for the US market, not that it should matter but I figured I’d point that out. The MID is TDKBLD-Wfa-000 - and again, I’ve used (essentially) the same drive to successfully write to both layers of this very disc in years past. It’s only supported write speed is 2X. So, here’s where my problems begin. Once I ripped the BD50 I intend to copy, I initiated the burn. It proceeds as expected and no errors or hiccups of any sort appear to happen during the burn. The verification seems to proceed properly at first as well, but as soon as it hits that second layer… that’s where ImgBurn starts to choke and spit out I/O errors. It seems that it did not burn the disc successfully after all, despite not showing any signs of trouble during the writing process. Like like I said, with my old external drive, same laptop and the same exact disc, I had no trouble writing to both layers in years past. I’ve tried all I can think of, short of a laser lens cleaning disc, which I have somewhere downstairs and will try to find and use as a last resort. In the meantime, I’ve tried quick-erasing the disc, full-erasing the disc, writing the ISO with Nero, I updated the drive firmware, etc. nothing I do seems to make this work and I must have attempted this test burn a dozen times by now. Now I am hesitant to try it on real WORM BD-R DL media in the event that burning to the second layer of those also fails and results in expensive coasters, but I don’t know if this is just this particular disc or my drive. All I know is that I’ve used this very disc and a similar drive with success in the past Is it possible the disc is just old? I have battered 20+ year old CD-RW discs that I must have used hundreds of times that are still good and result in error-free burns. This isn’t nearly as old. And the first layer is able to be written to and read without error, as proved by me ripping and burning a copy of a single layer blu ray disc. so... what could be happening here?
