Problems withburning

Recommended Posts

For a last month or two I have annoying problem: ImgBurn can not burn! Actually, it starts (seems normal), than seems like it burn DVD for more than one hour (or so), but DVD is not burned OK.

 

Here is log file: http://paste2.org/p/782282 (or in attachment)

 

Here are screenshots from DVDinfoPro:

Btw, situation is same with Ashampoo Burning Studio Free >>> http://i39.tinypic.com/15i2d08.png

(first part is just simulation, burning starts from middle).

 

Only program that can burn (and do that great, just like ImgBurn until this last month or so) is small freeware UsefulUtils Discs Studio. Maybe this is reason why UDS works ok?

Please, any idea?

 

My software and hardware can be seen here: http://www.zoniweb.com/mypc/index.html

Enabled 'Test Mode' and burn a DVD-R in Discovery mode.

 

Then post a new log.

 

If your burns are taking 70 mins (when it's supposed to be burning at 8x), something is obviously wrong!

But, it seems that burning now was OK and normal length (!)

For me, it seems that ImgBurn normal create image file, but burning on DVD is not working as it should. I thought there are some hardware problems, but UsefulUtils Discs Studio works perfect.

Your problems are releted to your hdd.

 

It can't supply data quickly enough to maintain a steady stream.

 

Beyond trying the usual DMA fix in the FAQ (and updating all chipset / controller drivers), you could try enabling buffered I/O on the I/O tab in the settings.

ImgBurn shows you the real average/maximum speeds, not the speed it should've been. If you compare ImgBurn's log in post #3 and the one you posted from disc studio you'll see that the latter actually took more time to burn.

Nope. "Studio" burned disk ok, ImgBurn not.

It's your burner that's messing up here (due to the slow hdd transfer) stuff.

 

Even with forced slowdowns (buffer underruns - on purpose!), a drive should still produce a working burn, yours isn't.

 

Hopefully enabling that Buffered I/O option will get things working at normal speeds again and then your drive won't be using it's dodgy burnproof technology all the time (or even at all!) - then your disc should work fine.

I assume the buffers are actually empty the entire time?

 

That's an obvious indication of a problem but you didn't actually mention it in your first post.

 

I don't know why else you'd be getting such rubbish speeds.

 

Try the DMA fix from the FAQ too (uninstall the controllers in Device Manager and reboot).

I have tried everything - nothing works :(

 

Well, Discs Studio will be good for now. When reinstall Win, will try ImgBurn again.

Let me repeat...

I need to know the answer to these questions so I can attempt to help you.

 

Also, what's in your filter drivers list? (Copy + paste from the feature in the 'Tools' menu)

I have now tried with Nero's ASPI

 

Buffer is NOT empty - usually it is filled about 80-90%

Not really - DVD is readable only on my PC!

Now I watched - Buffer and Device buffer are almost all time full, but speed varies usually around 2-3x, but often fell down to 0x (and remain at 0 for even more than 20 seconds).

18:28:54 User accepted incorrect file system selection for DivX Video disc warning!

This could be a problem on some standalone DVD players.

 

Other than that the disc should be fine.
