Problem with verifying and semaphore

Recommended Posts

I have a external BD-R burner, and I am having a lot of problems with verifying, this doesn't just happen with BD-Rs, but in the last 2 times today that has been what has happened. Any ideas what it could be ? I have a Windows 10 PC. It keeps just cutting out and going on about Semaphore, it doesn't happen at the same time so I am fairly sure it isn't the discs, especially as it has happened with CD-audio discs as well as blu-rays.

Generally, semaphore time issues are a plague of external drives.  They're caused by a conflict between the USB to SATA bridge in the unit and the controller on your motherboard.  The only solution that tends to work is to get a different drive.  Or replace your motherboard, but that's using a bazooka to swat a fly.  Since you said this happens on CD-R and BD-R, as you said, you can pretty much rule out the discs.  So, I wouldn't necessarily blame the Ritek BD-R's you're using.  Although Ritek media can cause all kinds of compatibility problems with drives.  If your CD-R are also Ritek or CMC, you could try getting some Verbatim BD-R or DataLifePlus/AZO CD-R.  (NOT the Life Series you find in stores.  They're CMC junk.)  However, I doubt that would help, but it would definitely pin down it's not the media you're using if you try with the best and get the same result.
