Problems burning to DVD-RAM

Recommended Posts

I was directed to IMGBURN by your chums at NEOSMART who sent me an iso for MS Vista.  I'm using a brand new Panasonic DVD-RAM disc, my laptop is a Lenovo Z51, here is the log.   As you see, I started the burn at 11pm yesterday evening.  After initial tyre kicking, it seems the burn got underway at 23:15:15 so I turned in for the night.  This morning I discover the operation is still underway spewing out what I assume are error conditions ("Failed to Write Sectors xxxxx - yyyyy - Reason: No Defect Spare Location Available") which began after the first 20 minutes of burning.  There hadn't appeared to be any indication of media incompatibility with the DVD drive, but is it a safe bet that this is the problem?   Where the log says "Retrying...", has this been successful?   I would have thought if not, then the whole burn operation would have stopped?

Have you tried doing a full format on that discs?

If you already have, you should give up with that and switch to different media. Your drive really doesn't like that one.
