Windows 7 / Explorer / ImgBurn Simply Hang

Recommended Posts

I'm trying out some new media LGEBRA-S04-00, I've burned 2 at 8x so was very pleased. The 3rd disk I tried at 8x just made ImgBurn / Windows 7 hang. ImgBurn had Reserving Tracks in the status bar, the disk was spinning and elapsed time over 5 minutes and 0% progress. ImgBurn could not be closed. At 1st I thought my drive was broken, then I tried a Verbatim (after pulling the power cord) and it worked. Then I decided the cheap media was just cheap. The 4th and 5th also just made ImgBurn / Windows hang. Even in safe mode ImgBurn just had the disk spinning and the only option was to pull the power cable.

 

I've gone back to the 3rd disk (nothing was actually written to it) again and it's currently burning no problem at 4x.

 

This is the current log:

That's the drive hanging, not ImgBurn. I have no control once a command has been submitted. Either the drive processes it (returning success or failure) or it doesn't - and that is where the 'hang' comes from.

Is this the behaviour of a bad/dying drive or buggy firmware? Should I report it to LG? What information do they need (ie which command was sent)?

I really couldn't say why it's doing it.

 

The LG supplied BD-RE (with the older H20L drive anyway) with the LG dye is pure shite, perhaps the BD-R they make are too?

 

As for which command is sent, it's almost exactly the one you see mentioned in the status bar 'RESERVE TRACK'. ImgBurn tells it like it is :)

I've got LG support on 'Live Chat', they say that the problem will go away if I use the burning software. I've pointed to my problems here too http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=14189

 

Update

 

What a waste of time that was. After being told to update the chipset driver, they told me that it was a problem with the compatability of the blanks and drive. I told them they're both from LG. Finally they sugested I send the drive to their service partner "to be checked".
