Invalid address for write error when burning double layer discs

Recommended Posts

I've been experiencing some trouble burning dual layer discs, getting a invalid address for write error. Maybe 1 in every 4 or 5 discs. Is this the error expected for just a bad disc? (I've read elsewhere that the expected failure rate for Verbatims should be about 1 in 20, not the 1 in 5 i'm getting.) Also, I always select the best rated layer break option (SPLIP=No), but have noticed that sometimes the only way to get a successful burn with a certain image is to use a different layer break than the highest star rating (Including using SPLIP=Yes). Could choosing a "wrong" layer break cause these errors? (Can doing multiple calculations before a burn screw something up?) I've posted the logs for 2 failures plus the successful burn below, each using different layer breaks:

Just curious, why are you doing those multiple calcs each time ? Also have you tried burning any of these discs at 2.4x rather than 4x ?

You're getting a 'Write Error', the other error only comes after that.

 

Not much you can do as it's totally down to the drive HOW it burns the disc. For some reason, yours is just failing.

Mostly because I had tried earlier burns with a different layer break and couldn't remember which breaks I had already tried. Also, yes, I've tried 2.4x, and get the same problems. In fact, in the last couple of days, every time i've selected a layer with SPLIP=no, I get a write error. I wasted 3 dvd-r's trying the same layer break over and over with one dvd backup, and was successful the first time I tried a different layer (SPLIP=Yes).

Have you had the drive long ? Can you RMA it ?

 

I've had it just over a year, but didn't use it heavily until about 3 months ago, and didn't discover imgburn until about 2 months ago. Before that I used the nero software that came with it and never had any problems. By RMA it, do yo mean return it? If so then, no, I can't.
