Failed To Send Cue Sheet Error

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been having some trouble burning Dreamcast CDI files to CD-R. I'm getting the Failed to send Cue Sheet Error and I'm not quite sure if my discs or if my burner is to blame. I have been able to do this with my burner in the past but since I picked up a stack of CD-R's today I've kept running into this issue. I'm using standard Verbatim CD-R discs and burning at a low speed, again this has worked in the past but I have no idea what could be wrong with the discs. I've seen a few posts similar to this but none have really helped me to identify my issue. Thanks. 

Some disc information

Here's your probable problem:

MID: 97m26s66f (CMC Magnetics Corp.)

Manufacturer: CMC Magnetics Corp.

 

You're using the cheap Verbatim Life Series CD-R, probably bought in a brick and mortar store.  They're made by CMC Magnetics, the worst manufacturer of optical discs out there.  Try using the higher quality Verbatim DataLife Plus/AZO discs which you'll only find in online stores.

They're CMC discs but they're the ones I got before that worked for me. I kinda spoke too soon because I just assumed that they would work as they were the exact same I used in the past, but I'm still getting the same issue. My bad.

Do as LUK said and post the log of a failed burn.  Open Help and choose ImgBurn logs.  Open the log file, find a failed burn, and copy and paste that burn's log in its entirety.

 

I still say it's the cheap discs.  It's the nature of CMC discs.  Something you get burns that complete and sometimes you don't.  And even if they do complete, there's no guarantee they won't be unreadable in a year or will play in a particular device you want to try them in.  I'd still say if you used DataLifePlus/AZO the problem would go away.  CMC failures generally go away when you do.

 

However, if CMC had been working for you before and you're fine still using CMC discs, how old is this drive you've been using?  If it's been in use for some time (And even if it hasn't as drives can die within 2 months of use even new.) it may mean the drive needs cleaning or replacing.

Weirdly I gave the discs from earlier another try and I got it to work somehow. I got my drive about a month ago, maybe less. I probably just have to clean it. I'm gonna go ahead and grab those discs you were talking about next time I need to buy some more. I got the log of one of the old failed attempts.

Multisession stuff will probably fail if you have test mode enabled - which you do there.

Please reset your settings back to default. The stuff you read on the internet about magic fixes for issues (i.e. changing the buffer to 72mb) are complete nonsense.

Once Test Mode is off, burn a disc and post the log from that if it fails please.

Thanks for getting back with me. I turned on test mode just in case the disc would fail half way through burning. I changed my settings back to default and strangely I'm the Invalid Address for Write error. I'm thinking my drive must be busted already but here's the log of the last one I tried. I'm trying different CDI files and discs so I'm thinking it's broken.

Before you invest in the cost, time, and installation of a new drive, try investing in the DataLifePlus/AZO CD-R's and see if that helps.  1.) it's cheaper and 2.) it's easier.  And even if you still have the problem, you will know it's not the cheap CMC media that is doing it.  If you still have the problem on the quality discs, you will know it's your drive, your system, or the image you're trying to burn that's the problem.

 

As for the image source you're trying to burn, I'm going to guess you didn't make this image yourself?  If so, there's no guarantee the images are even good.
