"Failed to Write Sectors ... Reason: Write Error"

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

this is my first try with imgburn and I run directly into an error :( I use imgburn to copy an DVD with DVDFab. DVDFab writes a .VAB file from my DVD to my harddrive and starts imgburn. Imgburn writes round about 500MB and fails with "Failed to Write Sectors ... Reason: Write Error". DVDFab is the only prog that runs during my test and I've installed the newest firmware for my burner. On the first time imgburn wrote with the recommended write speed (8x). On the second time I reduced it to 4x, but the same behavior.

 

Do you have any idea what went here wrong?

 

TIA! :)

TobyD

Invest in some better discs, your drive doesn't like those 'DAXON016S' ones.

 

Oh... strange... before imgburn i burned with these discs on this drive.... may it be a combination on these discs, imgburn and my drive?

 

May you tell me, which discs are recomended for me? And which type (DVD-R, or DVD+R)?

 

BTW: Thanks for your great work on imgburn! Keep up the good work!:)

 

Best regards! :)

Software just sends the data to the drive. It plays no part in the actual burning of the disc, that's handled by the drive's firmware.

 

Changing the 'Write Type' option in ImgBurn's settings to 'Incremental' *might* get you a successful burn but that's just a workaround a not a fix. The drive should be able to burn equally well with the DAO/SAO write type.

 

The best discs are made (sold) by Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden (Victor JVC).

Thank you for the explanation, for your opinion and for the "incremental" hint! I'll try it tommorow.

 

CU! :)

Hi,

 

I'll try it tommorow.

 

bought today Verbatim discs AND changed write type to incremental. This worked! :)

 

Last little question: which problems are possible if I leave the write type "incremental" forever?

 

Big thanks! :)

You should leave it on DAO/SAO now you have some decent discs.

 

Incremental is there as an option but receives no testing from me - I always use DAO/SAO.

 

There should be no difference in burn quality but sometimes one will work when the other doesn't - but that can happen either way round (i.e. incremental NOT work and DAO/SAO DOES work).
