DL Burn Fails: "Tracking Servo Failure". Please Help.

Recommended Posts

I burned 2 previous Memorex DVD+DL 2.4x disks (comes in pack of 3) without problem using my LG GSA-4163B burner. Unfortunately, on my lastest burn, it failed. It seems the problem was "Failed to Write Sectors 2129792 - 2129823 - Tracking Servo Failure". What does it mean? And how can I fix the problem? Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

 

Here's the log:

Easy one this... don't buy Ritek DL discs.

 

Go for Verbatims.

 

Update your drives firmware too. You should be on A106 now, not A102.

Thanks LIGHTNING UK! for the advice...for a moment, I thought it was a hardware problem but luckily it's not :)

 

Not sure where you're from but Verbatims are very expensive over here in Canada, it costs about US$10 per disk and they rarely go on sale :(

They are around ?3-4 here in the UK but they are worth the money, the other DL's are not as reliable as the Verbs..... :)
