SSBB burning fails writer unable to do layer break?

Recommended Posts

Yet another Super Smash Brothers Brawl topic >_<

 

I use 8x DVD+R DL media from Verbatim. Media code is MKM-003-00 (can't seem to get hold of 001's). I burn at 2.4 speed (although this line is in the log: I 18:26:26 Average Write Rate: 3.134 KB/s (2.3x) - Maximum Write Rate: 4.201 KB/s (3.0x)). I used the latest version of ImageBurn and set the layer break to 2084960.

My writer is a rather old (but good) Nec ND-2510A. Firmware is v2.19, which I believe is the very latest.

Everything went fine until I reached about 40% then an error appeared (see below please). Looking at the disc it was written to until about 5mm from the edge, so I'm guessing it choked at the layer break?

 

Can anyone offer further advise on this?:)

 

many thanks,

 

Jeroen

Your burner is old and was good...you can replace it with a modern drive for $20-$30. I'm actually surprised that burner even recognized those discs.....old burner + new media = coasters

Buy a new drive or get the MKM-001-00 discs. Your drive is too old to support those MKM-003-00 ones properly.

I just dumped its firmware and you are quite right. Only following are supported DL media:

Luckily, I anticipated this and bought myself a Pioneer 215D as it seems to be the very best drive out there for burning DL media. Too bad it is beige :mellow:

Yeah - the 2.4x speed on those 003's was a dead giveaway. Still, the drive should be buried with honour, if it has lasted so long.

Great tip. On my ND-2510, I managed to get the facia off (after I figured out the tray had to be left open before removing the drive from the computer).

Then I clicked the tray's front off (you know the thing which usually has some writing on it regarding the drive's abilities).

If I can manage this on the Pioneer I'll know what to do on my day off tomorrow :thumbup:

 

Hi Blutach,

 

I'm donating the entire computer with drive to my dad. Since he burns about 2 discs a year it may very well last a lifetime:)

 

Thanks to all for helping me out here!
