Failed BR-DL disc write

Recommended Posts

I see others (e.g., http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?/topic/24605-bluray-dl-fails-verification-discs-no-good/)are having similar problems writing BD-R-DL discs. I have included the burn log below. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance.

I know the WH16NS40 is terrible at writing BD-RE DL media.  I've never used a Verbatim BD-R DL, but I have tried Verbatim BD-RE DL with my drive many times.  It fails Verify more often than not at the layer change.

Thanks for all the feedback.  I updated the firmware, but the third try also failed on read during verify. Any suggestions on a drive that is good at writing BD-RE DL media?

 

Again, thanks for the input.

My best experience with Verbatim BD-RE DL has been Pioneer's BDR-209M, with a few caveats.  The last firmware released for this drive borks writing to Ritek 8x DVD+RW.  They won't complete Verifies until formatted by an earlier firmware or in another drive.  So, it may require downgrading the firmware on if it borks writing to ALL DVD+RW.  Pioneer also has a few quality issues.  The Eject buttons will go wonky after about 7 months.  Pressing the Eject button won't work the first time, requiring a 2nd press.  Same with issuing an Eject command in ImgBurn.  Happened on my first 2 models.  However, if ImgBurn automatically ejects the disc like after a write before a Verify, it seems to work every time.  And there may be a general decline in the quality of the drive itself.  My first and 2nd ones still work after almost 3 years, save for the Eject button issue and having to downgrade the firmware.  My third one stopped writing BD-R after 7 months.  My 4th one was borked right out of the box, failing to Verify on BD-R's the 2nd Pioneer of the same model would write properly to.  So, it went back to Amazon.com.

OK.  I bought a Pioneer BDR-209D.   It seemed to do better than the Optical Quantum BD-R DL discs, but I only had a 50% success rate.  Then I ordered Philips BD-R DL discs, and I have been 5 for 5 so far.

 

So in summary:

 

LG WH14NS40 drive and Optical Quantum BD-R DL discs: 0 for 3

Pioneer BDR-209D and Optical Quantum BD-R DL discs: 2 for 4

Pioneer BDR-209D and Philips BR-R DL discs: 5 for 5 (so far)

 

 

Thanks for the advice!

Optical Quantum is not a brand I'm familiar with, so they're probably cheap discs.  Any cheap manufacturer will probably almost always fail on double layer media.  They did in the past with DVD DL so I don't see why that trend wouldn't continue with BD.

 

 

I have heard of Philips, but my only experience with them was some DVD-R that CMC made.  CMC is the worst optical manufacturer out there.  But, that's no reason that Philips would use CMC for BD media.  If CMC even makes BD DL media.
