    Optiarc 7170S I/O Error

    Forgive my ignorance. What does "PTP" and "OTP" stand for? Carl.

    I did load the MDS. I also re-ripped the DVD and got the same message. Carl.

    Optiarc 7170S I/O Error

    But why with the new version am I getting that on every ISO when I did not get that error previously? I even tried to burn a copy of an ISO that I had successfully burned with the previous version and received that error with this new version? Carl.

    Optiarc 7170S I/O Error

    Hi Lighning. So I updated imgburn to the new v. 2.4.2.0 and did not get the same freezing while initializing problem when switching over from reading to writing. I do however have a new problem which I suspect (hope) is probably a setting problem. When I try burn the DVD from the .mds / .iso file(s) I get the following error message: "Optimal L1 Data Zone Start LBA: None Found! (VTS_13) This image has not been mastered correctly for burning on to a double layer (OTP track path) Disc. None of the Cells meet the 'DVD-Video Specification' criteria for a potential laye break position" With the option to Continue anyway Yes or No" I am thinking that this might be related to the fact that I use Any-DVD to strip out the advertisements and some of the extras etc. Is that likely? If so is there a way to resolve this and still use Any-DVD to get rid of the stuff I don't want? Or is this caused by something totally different? btw since this is a new error should I have started a new thread? Thanks in advance TTUL Carl.

    No problem. I will let you know as soon as I get a chance to test. TTUL. Carl.

    Please stop with your crap responses when you don't know what you are talking about. I don't by systems from PC World or any other retail shop. I build my own and have been building them with top notch hardware for over a decade now. I will not waste hours of my time reformatting my system when every thing else works just fine. Instead of randomly blaming peoples hardware without any kind of valid suggestion maybe you should consider the lowest common denominator. I.E. everything else works imgburn does not. Maybe that doesn't say anything to you but it does to any normally logical thinking person. Granted I am not a huge fan of Vista but I do need to run it for testing purposes as I build systems and occasionally I get a client that actually wants Visa on their computer(s). And I do know that there are a large number of problems with Vista. But most of these are because a large number of hardware manufacturers and software developers have not bothered to make any attempt to make their products compatible with Vista. Also most of the systems out there that have Vista in them (Especially off of retail shelves) are far to underpowered to run Vista properly. I really don't understand how you can see that "it clearly is not actually the program but something on your system that is not quite right" when you offer no evidence or reason why "something no quite right with my system" would affect only imgburn and nothing else?? What you have to say simply makes no sense and you are no help whatsoever in finding a solution to the problem. I am trying to help the developer work out a bug. If the developer truly thinks that he has written a software program that cannot possibly have a bug in it then I guess this program is at a dead end and I will vote with my feet and move on to other programs that work just fine and are alway being improved upon because those developers know there is always room for improvement in any application (Whether for new and improved features or to remove minor bugs). To Lightning UK. I will try your F8 option when I get back to my house later today to see if it provides any other light on the issue. Thank you. Carl.

    Carl. Stop talking sh*** and if you must then at least get the name of the program your whining about right. It is "ImgBurn" Edit ... Carl have you posted a log of a failed burn, have you also posted what motherboard your using with which driver and which sata port/ controller you have your optical connected to. You see I only have 15 SATA writers So what do I know. Only The Samsung SATA ones I have do not play nice with writing onto DVD+R whilst trying to set book type to DVD-ROM The Chipset/s I am using in MOBO[iCH7] and VIA addon card 6421L and GL chipset in SATA 2 usb adapter (This includes all burning programs) and only with DVD+R >DVD-ROM (My optiarc's/ Pioneers/ are fine though. As with several people here I use several other programs including but not limited to Easy CD-DA extractor, CloneCD, CloneDVD2, Nero 7 Ultra, Power ISO, Magic ISO as well as others. I have no problems with any of them except imgburn. Obviously imgburn has a problem with some hardware combinations. Reporting a problem with a software program is not "whining" it is an attempt to help the developer fix his or her program. How else can you expect the developer to know what the problems are with their program if no one "whines" about them?? In order to help the developer resolve the issues with this program I provide the following info.: I am running Windows Vista Business SP1 with all current updates on an Asus PLD2 Deluxe Motherboard (Intel 945P chipset with ICH7 Pentium D 3.4Ghz 2GB DDR 667MHz RAM. DVD Burner is an LG GGC-H20L Blu-Ray / HD DVD reader / DVD / CD Burner with the latest firmware. Display adapter is an EVGA / Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS Let me know if there is any other info you need to help diagnose and resolve this problem. There is nothing in the log since the problem is with initializing the disc. It happens when I have read a DVD to an image and then am switching modes from reading to writing. The program get's stuck on initializing the disc and stays there. End Tasking on the program in task manager does not have any effect. If I end task on the Process it will close the program but not the process. I have to turn of the computer manually and reboot in order to clear the process. Thank you in advance Carl.

    Optiarc 7170S I/O Error

    How you can stay cool is beyond me Well since virtually everyone who is reporting this error (Including me I have at least 5 other programs that I use to write various types of data to my single SATA DVD burner) reports that their drives work just fine with several other CD / DVD writing programs I think it is obvious that it is ImageBurn that is not playing nice with these drives. How many of your 6 drives are SATA writers? since it seems to be with these (Or other interfaces that report themselves as being SCSI), that ImageBurn seems to be having problems with. Carl.

    So I guess that confirms that the problem is with ImagBurn's driver and not the cable, drive etc.... I have a similar problem with a relatively new LG Blu-Ray / HD reader/ DVD burner. Anytime I record an image and then put a blank disc in and try to switch imageburn from reading to writing it locks up trying to look at the disc. I can't even end task on it. (The program closes but the process does not) the only way to unlock the system is to reboot the computer (Usually twice). I think it is a problem with ImageBurn's interaction with SATA DVD-Rom drives. but whatever it is it is definately an ImageBurn problem and not the hardware's fault. Hopefully it will get fixed in a future update. Carl.
