This is unrelated but I dug out a CD-R burned by my Sony CDRW drive from 2002 and ran Nero Discspeed on it.

 

Not bad for a cheap CD-R burned 15 years ago. It feels like you can't buy a drive of this quality anymore, or CDs are easier to burn than DVD/BR.

CD burners were more reliable because they only did 3 functions: write CD-R, write CD-RW, and read CD's.  Only 1 format, with 2 different flavors.  Once DVD burners were introduced, you had to add in read and write capabilities for DVD-R and DVD-RAM.  Eventually DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW were added.  Then, they added DVD-R DL and DVD+R DL, making it even more complicated.  Then BD burners added yet another layer of things it did with BD-R, BD-RE, BD-R DL, and BD-RE DL.  Then, they added BD-R XL and BD-RE XL.  And then they added M-Disc.  As you add layers of complexity to what a device can do, the likelihood of it failing one of those components increases by a factor of levels.

 

 

Media also used to be more reliable because the crap manufacturers hadn't gotten into the business yet.  Memorex used to make a great CD-RW when the media was new.  Then, CMC came along, and Memorex sold out their CD-RW to them.

I just picked up some Verbatim DVD+R DLs and this is happening on all of them.

 

What's going on here?

The drive doesn't appear to like the discs.

Try them in another drive.

I exchanged them for another 20-pack spindle just in case. These are Verbatim DVD+R DL AZO discs.

 

In my ASUS drive, this is what happens instead.

This happened on the last spindle too. Always fails in the same place. I bought this drive new 6 days ago.

Does the Asus do the same when you turn the 'Perform OPC Before Write' option back off?

I don't know how unlucky you can be with drives/discs, but something isn't right there.

Thanks for the continued assistance.

 

This is what happens on my drives with these brand new MKM-003-00 discs. Second spindle (I took the first one back to the store). These are 20 packs.

 

Matsushita UJ-8A8 Notebook - Fails OPC. If OPC is skipped, L0 can't be set.

 

ASUS DRW-24B3ST - Burns but fails on verify.

 

I also reconnected the three month old LG GH24NSC0 - fails on verify.

Next thing I'll do is burn without OPC on the ASUS, but my hopes are low...

I bought a third spindle from another store just to see what would happen. Same results. All these failed burns had one thing in common, the image.

 

I burned another image on the ASUS and it came out fine.

 

The Matsushita just refuses to burn these discs at all.

 

The question now is what's wrong with the image...

There shouldn't be anything 'wrong' with it, data is just data. The drive shouldn't know or care about what it's burning - unless you've managed to find some *very* special combo of 1's and 0's that always cause a problem.

It also doesn't appear to be failing at the same point.

Can your Asus do disc quality scans in the likes of cdspeed / dvdinfopro / opti drive control / kprobe?

You're right, the spot that verify fails on is different. :/

 

Continuing to think about the image, I mounted it as a virtual drive, "ripped" it again, then burned. Burned great on the first try on the ASUS. 95 score on discspeed. This is after 5 failed verify coasters from the original image.

 

In fact, I tried burning this exact image on the first page of this thread, and it also failed. I forgot about that.

 

I've had this happen before with IMGBurn. Verify consistently fails until the image is mounted in a virtual drive then ripped again.

 

I'm forgetting the Matsushita drive completely for now, because it refuses to burn these DVD+R DLs. It's 6 years old, so its burning capacity must be on the way out.

 

I've burned a few other DL images without issues. I'm not sure why this happens, because as you say data is data. Is there any further information I can provide?

Only a disc quality scan of the disc that just failed to verify (as per the log in post # 45) - if your Asus supports it.

That's where I was heading with the last line of my previous post.

It might be worth doing a disk error scan on the drive where these failed images were.  You may have a dying HD or bad sectors.  The image could be being saved in these areas that are bad.  At least, that's a step I'd take.  Unless it's an SSD, which I don't think you're supposed to perform error scans on?  :unsure:

With the "bad" image the scan is ALWAYS 77. With the "good" image (bad image re-ripped through a virtual drive), the scan is ALWAYS 95. ??? Verify fails on every drive I've tried only with this image. I can provide the 95 scan as well.

No disk integrity problems confirmed through Windows verification and SMART.

Yeah, it appears to have been a random hiccup.  Something in memory interfered with the writing of the image file.  Could have been AV software that did it.  It was so random that the image integrity was good enough to burn but the actual data was corrupted.  I've randomly encountered that a few times.  If I get bad burns from the same image file on 2 different burners, then I try recreating the image to see if that helps.  If it still doesn't, then I isolate the possibility of the discs being bad in the entire cake stack.  Or the incredibly random possibility that both drives failed at the same time.  After I've done, of course, partition image restore tests of Windows to a point where I know burning discs worked first.  Yes, lots of debugging work, sometimes.  :rolleyes:

Another interesting note, I've been getting better burns (scanning at around 95) with the 2011 Matsushita UJ-8A8 drive in my notebook than with the brand new ASUS DRW-24B3ST (scanning at around 90). Discs are scanned on the ASUS because it's the only drive that supports scanning. Perhaps age and form are not the only factors.
