Write Error: can't write audio CD-R from .cue file

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to burn audio on some maxell CD-Rs, here is some info about the drive and the CD itself:

Every setting is set to default (Perform OPC Before Write is unchecked).

The complete log and the error dialog I get are the following:

Looked around a lot in the forum but couldn't find anything similar, maybe there is a problem with my optical drive?

This is your most likely culprit:

I 23:26:25 Destination Media Type: CD-R (Disc ID: 97m26s66f, CMC Magnetics Corp.)

 

CMC Magnetics Corporation makes the absolutely worst, cheap media you can buy.  Over half of the problems we see on this board are cured by not using cheap media like CMC.  Try Verbatim DataLife Plus/AZO CD-R.  NOT the Life Series you find in stores, which are CMC.  You will only find the DataLife Plus media in online stores.

I've seen this elsewhere on the forum, but since my friend could burn onto some of these CDs on her pc (using the same settings) I thought maybe this is an exception now. Well, I'll try again tomorrow on another computer, maybe that will help. Next time we'll surely try Verbatim disks, thanks for the fast answer.

Just because a CMC completes a burn doesn't mean it's good.  That's the nature of cheap media.  Half the time you'll get completed burns.  Some people never have a problem burning with them and think they're good.  Someone people always get failures.  Some get 50/50 results.  The problem with cheap media is even though it completes a burn, it may not be playable.  I had some CMC DVD+R that burned fine, but no DVD player would recognize they were inserted for playing.  Plus, another problem with cheap media is in as little as a year's time, there's no guarantee cheap media will still be readable.  I've had personal experience with CMC DVD+R DL that completed burn and Verify but were unreadable after a year.

 

Plus, it depends on your drive.  Some drives are a bit more forgiving than others.  The only solution there if you have a problem with a drive and media combination failure is to replace the drive.  It's simply easier and cheaper to use the quality media.

 

One thing you could do is try searching for a firmware update for your drive.  In Write mode, right click on the drop down list of target drives for burning and choose the option near the bottom of the context menu to check for firmware updates.  Sometimes, it's simply a case of older firmware.  Newer updates to the drive's firmware might resolve compatibility problems, but they can introduce new ones, like Pioneer does ALL the time.
