Burnspeed is not what is selected

Recommended Posts

The Discovery Mode is not something you use when you do a regular burn - the burned disc will be filled with dummy data.

 

Enable the option to save a graph data file for DVDInfoPro in the settings.

Press Ctrl + Alt + D to get to Discovery Mode

Selct 'All sectors'

Enable the 'Verify' option

Insert a blanc disc

Set the write speed

Press the burn button

Cynthia and Lightning UK:

 

Unfortunately, I did the Discovery Mode burn before reading Cynthia's reply so I did not enable Graph Data or Verify.

 

Anyway, here is the log if it has any meaning.

Ah well, as you're going to have to burn another disc anyway you might as well enable I/O debug mode by pressing F8 before you click the 'Write' button (still in Discovery mode).

 

Before burning, please also copy + paste everything from the disc info panel on the right.

 

So that means we'll end up with the following:

 

1. Text from the Disc info panel before the burn.

2. An 'I/O Debug Mode' enabled burn+verify log (you might have to make that an attachment rather than copy + pasting it)

3. An IBG file (graph data)

I've been having a similar problem.

 

Problem: ImgBurn is not writing to DVD-R at the selected burn speed. Below is a summary along with all the regular burn log, post-burn side panel and .ibg file. On my next burn I will post a debug log and pre-burn side panel.

 

Summary: I clicked on "Write Img to Disc." I selected write speed of 3x. as this is supported by my DVD-R media. The results of my burn are as so: Average Write Rate: 7,439 KB/s (5.4x) - Maximum Write Rate: 10,917 KB/s (7.9x). I cannot verify that my hardware supports 3x write speed, however I have burned many successful writes at 3x write speed using UltraISO. Then again, UltraISO doesn't show real-time write speed, so this statement may not be entirely accurate. My next burn will be 4x. I didn't have any problem at 4x, 6x, or 8x with Imgburn, but I have not tried those speeds since I updated to the most recent version; only 3x.

 

Thanks!

I 16:10:09 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: CMC MAG. AM3) (Speeds: 3x, 4x, 6x, 8x)

This is what's being reported by the drive. I'm not sure 3x is a valid speed for DVD-R media. Maybe the drive is misreporting the 2x speed?

Here we go, same media and I chose 4x this time. Same thing happened, please let me know what you think. Do you think these are bad burns? I don't see the option in DVDInfoPro to show PI errors. Is it available?

 

All is attached:

1. Text from the Disc info panel before the burn.

2. An 'I/O Debug Mode' enabled burn+verify log (you might have to make that an attachment rather than copy + pasting it)

3. An IBG file (graph data)

I just rolled back my firmware to a previous version. I'm about to do a burn right now. I thought I'd post my Filter Driver Load Order here. If anyone has a suggestion for me regarding both my Filters and my burning speed problem, I would appreciate it. Also, should I check the "Reading - Always Use Buffered I/O" check box on the I/O Settings Panel? I mostly burn 4.37GB full images.

Remove both those filters, you can always reinstall the software later if you need to.

 

If the main buffer is always full, you don't need to touch that buffered I/O option.
