Imgburn Locking up

Recommended Posts

imgburn is just one program on your system. i suspect you have other problems that keeping a successful burn. Whats your hardware setup how many hard drive, optical drives do you have? Are you using any other add on controllers? can you burn non DL media?

 

Yeah I can burn non dl all day long quick and easy. I have not tried burning anything else with imgburn though? I use convertx and nero. No issues

Internal hardrive (160gb) and external (500gb). I dont pull files from the external though, per an earlier post.

The verbatrims I got of course were the 8x thats all they had. They dont even get going before failure, the memorex go good for a bit.

If you could try the drive on another computer it would tell us if it's a problem with your computer/drivers or if the problem is the burner itself, as it's very odd that it isn't returning an error message when the burn stalls.

THanks

 

Mirror 7 is the better one out of the list, as its hosted by the site. Thats not to say theres anything wrong with all the other mirror sites who kindly host IB

I have a similar problem, if not the same.

 

It has happened several times, randomly. Sometimes it works, sometimes it freezes in the middle, like in this screenshot:

I was trying to burn an .iso image.

 

It seemed to be working ok after reinstalling ImgBurn and deleting its settings. But now it happened again.

 

I attached the log, sadly I hadn't enabled debugging information.

There's firmware EL01 available for your burner at http://au.lgservice.com/ (Device Driver -> DVD-ROM(Writer) -> page 2). Remove any disc and close the tray before applying the firmware. Reboot after it has finished. Also please try with high quality media, such as Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden blanks, so that we can rule out media as the problem.

I know there's a firmware update, but reading the changelog ("Improve Writing Strategy for new 20X media") it doesn't seem like it's gonna fix this problem and I don't want to take the risk. It used to work ok.

 

Media is not very high quality, but a friend of mine is using the same discs with two drives (one is a SATA LG drive, can't remember if it's the same model) and he never had any problems.

 

BTW, it's a SATA drive working in AHCI mode.

 

 

I canceled the operation and after almost an hour, it finally stopped (the drive's light was still blinking):

All that's happened there is the I/O command has eventually timed out, meaning ImgBurn has regained control and quit nicely.

 

Do you need your controller in AHCI mode?

 

Which motherboard are you running? Which controller is the drive attached to?

Yes, I need AHCI to take full advantage of my hard drive.

 

My motherboard is an Intel DP965LT. The drive is attached to the motherboard's SATA controller. I already tried different SATA channel and cable.

Ok so do you have the latest Intel Matrix drivers installed?

 

There are no Intel Matrix Storage drivers for my board, ICH8 doesn't have RAID, so I'm using Vista's drivers. The latest Intel drivers for my board are installed, though.

That pretty much just leaves the filter drivers then (Tools menu).

 

Have you tried putting the controller into ATA mode just to see if it works?
