Hi there. Hope you can help. The writer is an Asus 06D2X-U with the latest firmware I could find, D501. Manufacture date is January 1, 2016. I bought it a month or two after that. Previous to this problem beginning the other day, all settings used, and media used worked fine. Then quite suddenly, this started to happen. Whenever I do a burn, it writes just a bit and starts off at 200kb/s then rapidly goes to zero, but the write speed displayed never goes above zero, then it all ends with an error. It writes enough just to make a coaster. The media is Daxon-R 4X-000; usually reliable by 90-95% at max speed of 4x. The current problem occurs even when I try lower speeds. Then the last batch became 50%. I figured it was just a bad batch, but now, the coasters are at 100% with the new ones I've gotten and used so far. I stopped burning and went on here. 

 

The really bizarre part of this is that when I do a test, it works. It fills up the device buffer. When I do a real write however, it doesn't fill up the device buffer at all. The test mode performs as it usually does, just that it doesn't write. This leads me to believe that it might be solved somehow with software. That device buffer failure to fill is an error I've never had before when drives failed.  I've tried resetting to defaults, a bit of light cleaning with no solvent, just microfibre cloth, and not touching the lens. I've used the writer in it's slanted vertical position since I bought it, but laying it flat doesn't help. I've read from ages ago that setting the buffer in IMGBurn above 500MB causes problems, so ever since, I've set it to less than that. 

 

It connects to the PC with a Y-cable. In the past, I've connected it reliably with the ends in dual USB3 ports, dual USB2 ports, and a mix of the two. My PC only has 2 USB3 ports and now has a 7-port powered USB3 hub plugged in each. The ends of the Y-cable are plugged into one port in each of the two hubs, and I've interchanged that to same hub for either, and a mix of both to the same effectiveness and now error. Those hubs are a few months old now so I doubt the problem is with them. I've also tried to see if the head moves by doing reads to image, then verify, and it works. I've also tested the images themselves. I suspect that the reading range of the laser's movements is short of the Power Calibration Area which likely can only be accessed when writing. 

 

I've tried VSO Inspector, but I can't find anything wrong. I just don't know how to use it, I guess. I've only used BD-R discs and read from BD-R of 25GB capacities. I have no intention of reading or writing to DVD or CD so I didn't bother testing with them. Tho' just a few minutes ago, I needed to get a file from an old backup from 2010 on a dual-layer DVD and it read fine. I decided to do a read to image and verify with it and it worked fine as well. I should also mention that I run two instances of IMGBurn at once. One to create images; one to burn. When this issue started, I used just one instance, but it still happened. I always leave optimal power calibration on. It didn't act up when the problem started, but is now starting to. I suspect that whatever the problem is, it's getting worse. 

 

My usual burn rate is 2-3 BD-R's a day. They are all data backups, none of them are BD movies. I should also mention that this my second writer of this model. The one before this lasted about 4 months, and also lost the ability to read. This current one does however seem to retain the ability to read and I don't think it's entirely broken. Before this, I used an internal Lite-on that lasted several years, about 4 or 5, I think. This current writer is external and was bought to be transported, but I never wound up transporting it. It's only used for backing up. I don't install any software with it. Other than burning backups, it's used for reading them. 

 

The electricity situation in the country is unreliable. It's often referred to as 'dirty'. So, I have a power strip, and a UPS with built-in AVR for all devices, including The PC, as well as the powered USB3 hubs. I've restarted a few times as well. This is the log of four burns. I had to deadtivate OPC as now it will not let me even test. The results are the same same as the past few days with OPC on. The first one is a test with BD-R Verify activated. It was successful. The second one is a real write with BD-R Verify activated. It failed, but I reinserted the disc and the status in IMGBurn tells me it's EMPTY, not incomplete, but empty. I was monitoring the burn and it did the 200kb/s thing for ten seconds before failing, but I guess nothing got written. The third one is a test with BD-R Verify deactivated. Successful. The fourth one is a real write with BD-R Verify deactivated. It did the 200kb/s thing for nine-ten seconds then failed. This time, it's a coaster. I know it does write since it makes coasters, but that Device Buffer not filling seems to be the key. Not so sure now with the OPC failing consistently now.

To me, those power calibration error suggest the drive doesn't like the daxon-rx4 mid.

I don't think you gave anything to worry about regarding the device buffer. That's just happening because of your other issue.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

While I doubt the Power Calibration Errors have anything to do with it, could the device buffer issue be down to the SPTD driver?  :unsure:

I tried other brands, they turn out to be the same media, just under different names, and higher prices. BenQ and Imation seem to be the most 'branded' names it goes under. The media has been reliable in the past at 90-95%. I don't think it's a bad batch anymore either as I've gotten two different 50-Disc boxes from two different brands of the same media with similar results.

It was possible that it was, but it's never been a problem in the past. I need it to load the images into the library database for reference. Just in case, I used Revo Uninstaller to wipe it from the system. I tried it once with OPC on and then off now that I removed Daemon Tools Lite which uses the SPTD Driver. With OPC on, it returned the same OPC failure. With it off, it behaved as usual, as above.

 

I've now finished a test and a real write. Both performed exactly as above, even with DTLite removed and it's SPTD Drivers. OPC Off.

Any help is appreciated. Can this drive be saved, or does it get retired as a reader only?

Retire it.

Although you haven't cleaned the lens, it shouldn't need doing if it's only a few months old.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

I retired it, but now I seem to be having a similar problem. Early in the malfunction, the discs were burned up to 42-43%. It's starting again now with this new drive. Any help about settings and whatnot will be appreciated.

The problem of the Device Buffer is no longer happening, but that was at the tail end of the number of issues before I boughta new drive. This 42% thing is something that ushered in the whole set of problems. I have also unplugged the old drive, just in case, even if it's going to be a reader only. It has for some reason become faster and more reliable a reader of my old backups.

Your drive is erroring out around the same position but it's just saying 'no write current' which isn't all that helpful.

Are you always performing a test mode burn on new discs before a real one? They're pretty pointless really and I thought the program told you test mode might not even work on BD media.

If you've already tried with 'perform opc before write' on and off, that basically all you can do.

Try other media.

Yes, I tried with OPC on, and it failed. I did a test with it on, and it failed. I tried it with it off, and the test worked until 43%. I did a real burn with it off, and it just went to 200kb/s for a few seconds before it failed. I checked the disc from this real burn, and it was empty, not incomplete. I tried a real burn again, and from fake real burn, it became a real burn and then a coaster when it failed. Is there a setting I can change so it returns more information than just 'No Write Current'? I thought the log was already that. Is there more?

No, all the errors the drive returns are what you see in the log.

That's specific error is one I often see coming from matshita drives, it's not what I'd expect from an asus. I'd just rather it said 'write error' as 'no write current' makes it look like the you've asked the drive a question and it's returning the current status. Obviously it's meant to be in the middle of a write operation, so there's definitely 'write current'.

two things have happened since: one of my external hdd's started acting up, and the new bd-writer was starting to act in a similar way to the one it replaced. i found the most incredibly stupid solution. i unplugged all my external drives which all happen to be seagate. the opc errors stopped, but now it's stopped at 98% for a few discs now. will try unplugging everything else.
