  1. I've got no experience with external drives, and without logs it's hard to be sure if something else has occurred during the burn. Having said that, if you've got the room on the internal hard drive, I'd be more inclined to create the ISO on it, simply to decrease the risk of data flow problems when burning the disc.

     

    Someone else here with experience with external drives/burners might be able to give a better answer though.


  2. Do you see other possible problems in the log?

    Only this one:

     

    I 04:01:17 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: CMC MAG-D01-00) (Speeds: 2,4x)

     

    Do you think that it is a problem of a too cheap disk (I didn?t read your tip for verbatim before, so I bought a cheap media, named ?Intenso?.

    Most Definately

     

    The problem with Verbatim is also that I found no singe DVD+R-DoubleLayer Disk from Verbatim in the shop, only a pack of fife, but I need only one, so the test would be very expensive)

    Not as expensive as burning multiple Intenso coasters and then buying Verbatims

     

    PS. Welcome to the forums, and understood your English fine :)


  3. Sounds like your original ISO file (presumably created by another program) was made without the VIDEO_TS directory. ImgBurn would therefore have burnt the ISO without the directory - it doesn't change the source when using ISO Write mode.

     

    As suggested by polopony, a log file, build mode, and the guides are our friends.


  4. So they're outsourcing their outsourcing. That must be saving them bucket loads. Next thing you know Indian call centres will be outsourced to .....

     

    And I'm sure we used to have to format our 8 inch floppies before we used them.


  5. Yes, here I am spending my holidays trolling the forums just waiting for THE post.

     

    When I could be downloading p0rn.


  6. I spoke too soon. When I went to do some stress testing (using Prime95) I came unstuck as it was producing incorrect results - still no crashes or anything, but with video compression I don't want it making incorrect calculations. Played around with uping voltage slightly and dropping overclock etc and ended up with:

     

    CPU Speed:

    CPU Clock 2299.22 MHz

    CPU Multiplier 10.0x

    CPU FSB 229.92 MHz (original: 200 MHz, overclock: 15%)

    Memory Bus 209.02 MHz

     

    Chipset Properties:

    Motherboard Chipset nVIDIA nForce3 250, AMD Hammer

    Memory Timings 3-4-4-9 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS)

    Command Rate (CR) 2T

     

    SPD Memory Modules:

    DIMM1: Infineon AED660UD00-500B98X 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.5-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz) (2.0-2-2-6 @ 133 MHz)

     

    This was with 1.55V CPU Core and resulted in a stable CPU temperature under stress conditions (including ambient mercury being high today - no A/C). Apart from some very fine tweaking, any higher is going to need an improved cooling installation.

     

    As before, I'd let the system choose the memory timings and command rate. Will try setting these manually to get back to CR 1T.


  7. Well Chewy, you got me thinking that I could do better, so after a little research courtesy of our friend Google, I've now gone from 12% overclock to 21% :D , although memory left around normal by changing the ratio. No increase in voltages for now as I only have stock standard heatsink/fan along with a fairly ordinary case fan. Appears stable at present - unlike when I tried 25%.

     

    Seen some comments regarding keeping the HT multiplier & frequency at or under normal, but need to do more reading on what & why.

  8. Damn chewy - 37% overclock. I can't get my Athlon 64 3000+ over about 12-13% before it freezes. Then I'm only using the general slider in EasyTune - not actually manually tweaking individual settings. Usually I don't bother overclocking it at all (although funnily enough with no overclocking selected it actually runs 4% over specs once rebooted). :wacko:

  9. I'd always assumed each layer was burnt in a separate pass, from admittedly skimming threads on the matter, and the fact that people who had their burns error at the layer break were approx 50% through. Wouldn't even like to hazzard a guess on direction though.


  10. While I have no sympathy for those involved in any type of child abuse, and have some ideas on fitting punishment, it is worrying the possible precedent this sort of subpoena sets. Additionally the fact that AOL, Yahoo and Microsoft just bent over as instructed without the media saying boo. If Google hadn't fought the issue, would the public know about what was happening ?

     

    Also is the data being requested purely US based queries, or global - in which case is this a shortcut for other countries to gather information on their residents via the US Gov't, who would of course pass on details in the interests of being the great protector of our freedom from terrorism and such.

     

    Google refuses US data request

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200601/s1552224.htm

     

    Right-to-privacy groups say an attempt by the US Government to force Internet search engine Google to hand over a week's worth of search data sets a dangerous precedent that should worry Americans.

     

    The Government says Google has refused to comply with a subpoena issued last year for one million random web addresses, as well as records of all searches entered on Google during any one-week period.

     

    The Justice Department told a US District Court on Wednesday it needed the information to prepare its case to revive the 1998 Child Online Protection Act.

     

    The law prohibits Internet companies from knowingly making available obscene or pornographic material to minors.

     

    The Supreme Court blocked the act two years ago, saying there were potential constitutional problems with the law, and sent the case back to a lower court for consideration.

     

    It is expected to be heard later this year.

     

    A spokesman for the libertarian Cato Institute, Jim Harper, says the Google subpoena is worrying.

     

    "This is the camel's nose under the tent for using search engines and all kinds of data aggregators as surveillance tools," he said.

     

    The US Government is already under fire from a number of rights groups over its security measures it has taken since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, including checking library records and eavesdropping on some telephone calls.

     

    Defence

     

    Attorney-General Alberto Gonzales says he rejects concerns the subpoena might violate individual privacy rights.

     

    "We're not asking for the identity of Americans," he said.

     

    "We simply want to have some subject matter information with respect to these communications.

     

    "This is important for the Department of Justice and we will pursue this matter."

     

    The Justice Department says America Online, Yahoo and Microsoft have all complied with similar requests for data.

     

    A Google spokesperson says the company objects to the breadth of the Government's request but does not consider it a privacy issue since the search terms would not include personally identifiable details.

     

    But Electronic Privacy Information Centre spokesman Chris Jay Hoofnagle says he is worried the Government could follow up its initial request with a demand for more information.

     

    "If Google hands over the search logs and the Justice Department finds search strings like 'child porn' or 'naked children', could they not then go back and ask Google for the user's Internet address?" he said.

     

    Centre for Democracy and Technology spokesman Ari Schwartz says the case is a wake-up call to all Internet users that information is being collected on them all the time and is stored indefinitely.

  11. And to top it all i haven't checked out the rest of the box but i bought em before xmas and havent got the receipt :(:(:(

    Would the store / supplier have records of the purchase anyway ? Can't imagine you purchased them from the local K-Mart.

     

    I couldn't locate receipt for my monitor recently when it needed warranty repair, so rang up the store, told them the date I bought it on and the other item purchased at the same time (graphics card) and they went through their receipts for the day and gave me a reprint. :thumbup:
