DVD RAM = Disc Not Empty" message

Recommended Posts

I have been using IngBurn with no problems burning DVD+R. I am unable to burn DVD-RAM and get the message"Disc Not Empty" I do burn DVD+R with a Lite On and am trying to burn the DVD Ram with a different drive that will not burn other DVD's

 

The Disc is fresh and has also been Erased Full with this software.

Disk Size = 4,700,307,456

Image Size = 4,113,453,056

Thanks in advance

Disc not empty just gets put in the status bar when the programs finds a filesystem on the disc, but the disc supports 'direct overwrite' (i.e. can be written to without needing to erase it each time).

 

It should still let you burn ok, it'll just overwrite whatever's already on there.

Thanks -- However the Arrow does not turn green and chicking on it is of no help. I have set the write speed at Max - 1x - 2x -2.4x and 4x = no effect. I have also checked the "Test Mode" and "Verify" boxes with no effect.

Hmm could you please copy + paste the info from the window on the right within ImgBurn.

 

Oh and just confirm you're on 1.3.0.0 :)

 

When I put a DVDRAM in my drive (one that already has data on it), it all works as it should do. The statusbar reads: 'Ready (Disc Not Empty)' and the big Write button is enabled.

 

All it can really be is that your drive isn't recognising the disc as a dvdram disc - as will be shown in the 'Current Profile' text.

I was on 1.2.0.0 (I had dowloaded 1.3.0.0 - but not installed it) I did install 1.3.0.0 and it made no difference.

Thg drive itself works in that I am able to copy to and from with XP.

 

Here is the data you requested:

ok, next thing to do for me....

 

Load ImgBurn without the disc in the drive.

 

Press the F8 key to enable debug mode.

 

Put DVDRAM disc in the drive.

 

Wait until you get that 'Disc Not Empty' message in the status bar again.

 

Press F8 to disable debug mode.

 

Save the log - via 'File' -> 'Save'.

 

Attach log to your next post.

 

 

 

 

Once you've done that, I'll take a look and see why the drive is reporting the information that it is.

Sorry it took so long to check the filmware -- yes I have the latest from 12/01.

 

I attached the log as requested. Thanks again for your efforts.

That's your problem(s) right there.

The drive doesn't appear to support the two most basic commands!

 

In all honesty, that kinda sucks.

 

I will try and build in a workaround.
