LG BH10LS30 + imgburn

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I hope someone can help, I'm having problems with imgburn and my new BD-RE drive. I have now bought two different packs of BD-R discs (Verbatim LTH 2x and Maxell 4x), when I put them in the drive and fire up imgburn, it either says "Device not ready (No medium)" or "Disc Not Empty", both of which are not the case.

 

In the information window on the right it says (when status bar states "Disc Not Empty")

 

HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH10LS30 1.00 (RAID)

Current Profile: None!

 

Disc Information:

Status: Unknown

State of Last Session: Unknown

Erasable: Unknown

Formatted: Unknown

Sessions: Unknown

Sectors: 4,278,255,615

Size: 8,761,867,499,520 bytes

Time: 950723:30:15 (MM:SS:FF)

 

Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to get it to see the disc.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Jon

You might find it's because of the controller you've connected it to.

 

Optical drives don't like being on RAID controllers.

 

Other than that, double check your cables / connections.

Thanks for the quick reply, I have an Nvidia nForce SATA controller onboard and it's not configured for raid, however in device manager I have Nvidia nForce SATA controller and Nvidia nForce RAID Controller. Do you think I should disable/uninstall the RAID controller?

 

Thanks again.

Do everything and anything you can!

 

Make sure you have the latest chipset / controller drivers direct from the NVIDIA website.

 

You could even try it again having totally uninstalled their drivers.

I have uninstalled and disabled the RAID controller. I've downloaded the latest chipset drivers. Several reboots but still imgburn says RAID and that the discs are not empty or not insert.

 

Windows 7 sees the disc and ask what I want to do but I use imgburn to burn everything.

No still the same, I've even done a fresh windows 7 install and only installed imgburn and it's the same.

 

I don't know what to try next.

Eject the disc.

Load ImgBurn

Switch to Write mode

Press F8

Insert disc

When it says disc not empty or whatever, press F8 again.

 

Now save the log to a file via File -> Saves As, then upload it.

look in the bios settings, it should be there.

I have and nvidia motherboard too, and it defaults to raid, just change it to achi.

 

My motherboard is nf980-g65

Intergrated Peripheral -> On-Chip ATA Devices -> Raid Mode - ACHI.

 

That is my setting at least

Does the drive work ok and report nice info to ImgBurn if you put an original CD/DVD/BD in the tray?

 

Do you have access to any other PCs you could try the drive in?

The drive plays nice with DVD-R DVD+R and CD-R.

 

I've tried dirio49 suggestion but my bois doesn't allow me to change SATA Mode option (it is greyed).

 

So I'm guessing that it's this that is the problem. (I traied to take an image of my new windows 7 install, the imaging software reported no drives).

 

I've looked on a few site for a fix, someone else has posted on the nVidia site about getting the SATA mode to AHCI but yet has no response.

 

Thanks for you help

I tried a blu ray movie and it doesn't like it, imgburn tells me that the "current profile none!". I don't know if it's a defective drive or a conflict with motherboard/chipset and drive.

 

I think I'll go purchase a PCIE SATA card tomorrow and see if that helps.

Thanks, but I'll have to take what ever maplin have, I want to get this sorted. I might even get a 5.25 enclosure, do you think that will work?

eBay it :)

 

Blu-ray and USB 2 don't really go, it's just not quick enough.

 

If you've got USB 3 and can get a USB 3 enclosure, go for it... you do run the risc of getting semaphore timeout issues with some USB chipsets/controllers though.

 

eSATA would be much safer but of course then you'd probably need a card for that, and if you're buying a card anyway you could just make it internal and save spending extra money on the enclosure!
