Sega CD "incorrect function" error followed by "track follow error"

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a BIN/CUE file of sonic CD from emuparadise and open the CUE file in imgburn. The Sonic CD file does work in a emulator.  After the buffer gets to 100%. I'm getting an error for "incorrect function." After cancelling that error I get an error for "track follow error". My drive apparently will only burn at 10X or higher and I know less than 6x is preferred but i don't know if that's the issue. Just bought a sega CD and want to try some games before i order them. TIA

This is most likely your problem:

 

I 23:32:05 Destination Media Type: CD-R (Disc ID: 97m26s66f, CMC Magnetics Corp.)

 

CMC Magnetics is the absolute bottom of the barrel disc manufacturer.  Half of the problems we see on this board are caused by CMC media and those problems generally disappear when people switch to quality media.

 

 

Try Verbatim DataLifePlus CD-R.  NOT Verbatim Life Series, which will be CMC.  However, you can only find the DataLifePlus stuff online.

Thanks I knew the discs were garbage but its all i had laying around the house and wanted to see if i could getting it working fundamentally before buying better discs. I'll get better ones tomorrow and see what happens.

'Incorrect Function' is a windows error message. It looks like it's blocking the 'write' commands or masking the real error code the drive is returning.

do you think better disks will resolve the issue?
