burned successfully but nothing on disk

Recommended Posts

I'm having issues burning iso files to dvd+r verbatims. It shows that the file has burned successfully but nothing appears on the disk. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. I've never had these issues in the past it just recently started to happen. Here is the log. I have noticed that the book type says incorrect function. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the burning process.

Some sort of game you burned? In what "hardware" are you trying to read the disc?

It may be that your burner just doesn't support booktype setting commands(?) I don't know. Try searching for an update to your firmware perhaps.

 

Also you burned a Wii ISO, and you can't read that on your PC anyhow. The burning process was successful, so just go ahead and try running your disc, if it doesn't run though that is something you have to figure out yourself, since imgburn burned your game successfully, though you did not verify your burn (which you should always do).

 

I also got a bit of bad news for you, your 'Verbatim' discs aren't true Verbatim:

True Single Layered Verbatim Discs have the disc ID MCC-xx, don't feel too bad though, I recently just got screwed as well and it was my own fault. :blush:

You won't see anything in Windows Explorer. Is not a file system that Windows recognise.

 

Verify your burns always.

wow thats pretty messed up i ended up getting the verbatim disks from officemax. So thats kind of screwy that they didn't sell true verbatim disks. I've had a few disks actually work with backing up games and movies. I'm also having this issue with movies that im trying to back up. When i end up verifying the disks it instantly comes up with an error message. I ended up popping the disk in the wii and it instantly came up with an error message. Thanks for the support. Where would I find the firmware updates for the cd driver?

You overlooked one little detail on the packaging: "Life series", these are the 'value discs', and so thats why, don't feel too bad it is a bit hard to notice unless you pay more attention which is something I should have done in the first place. :doh:

wow thats really depressing. I'm glad you told me about this. so basically these disks are a waste?

Thats hard to say with SL discs (Single Layered), because with my burner luckily I haven't had any issues burning, verifying, and reading as well as them playing on other devices. For DL (dual layered) discs it matters a bit more, because of both burning and playback.

 

The depressing thing obviously is that you cannot really trust the brand name anymore, meaning TDK is no longer really TDK but Ritek, and Memorex is no longer Memorex but CMC-MAGNETICS. Now Verbatims are using CMC-MAG for their cheaper products too.

 

The main issue with these discs is essentially for how long will they be readable? :whistling:

the funny issue is that the first ten disks that i have used worked perfectly no issues at all then all of a sudden they just arent burning. It's a shame because people are spending 30-40 dollars on these disks and they want them to be reliable.

Yea, thats what happened to me with TDK DVD+R DLs (Ritek). I mistakenly bought them from Office Depot, a 15pk , and 3 of the 15 were bad, which I guess isn't too bad, the only issue is that none of the discs that successfully burned and verified read on my player, :doh:.

 

If you go to Office Depot, you don't really have a choice between TDK or Memorex, it is really just Ritek and CMC-MAG with the TDK or Memorex brand slapped on.

 

I have a thread of this very issue here, when I went to Best Buy and bought Verbatim SL and DL discs, and the SL turned out to be the life series (CMC-MAG)...

 

Anyways, back on topic though. Next time have imgburn verify your burns. Also Wii discs aren't readable anyways, so you will just have to try your luck running it on your console. If it doesn't work though, I'm afraid you will have to do some searching because we can only help you with burning issues. Good luck.

I 11:47:27 Write Speed: 8x

Now, you have to try with all available speeds to see if one of them will produce a readable disc, leave the verify enabled.

 

A lens cleaning disc might help too.

 

If you have no valid reason, you shoud consider update Vista to SP2.

I just noticed something else, are you on a notebook?

TSSTcorp is usually a slimline burner no? If thats the case, that is also a factor since notebook burners are considered crap. You may want to get a proper internal (full 3.25") burner and get an external USB2.0 enclosure for it.
