  1. If you did not use a DVD-RW, which you probably didn't because you said specifically you used DVD-R, then the files can't be erased. DVD-R is WORM media, which stands for Write Once, Read Many. So, you can only write to them once. IF you did use DVD-RW or even DVD+RW, you can just write to it again and those contents will be erased and replaced by the subsequent write.
  2. I never found the higher quality of Blu-Ray worth the price. While, yes, it is higher than DVD, upscaling DVD players like the PS3 can also achieve similar quality, so why bother? My big beef is how Blu-Ray players don't navigate like DVD's. For instance, you're supposed to be able to resume playback of Blu-Rays, yet, more than half of them don't support this feature like DVD's do. On the PS3, the Enter button also serves as Pause during playback of DVD's. This does not work on Blu-Rays. You can copy a Blu-Ray that fits on a DVD to a DVD and get it to play, but you cannot copy a DVD to a Blu-Ray disc and get it to play. Ridiculous!
  3. The BBC is still good at releasing new series Doctor Who and classic series animated reconstructions on DVD. I prefer DVD's to Blu-Ray because DVD's navigate easier than Blu-Rays do in Blu-Ray players.
  4. Hank and Peggy were so full of themselves, and completely oblivious to the fact! Bobby was pretty much the most well adjusted one, but Hank never could see past what he thought were failures in his own son. Peggy, at least, tried to nurture him. I will only get things on physical media. I refuse to stream anything. Movies, songs, TV shows. I must own a physical copy or I won't pay. Steams can be taken away from you at any time the license expires or the rights holder simply doesn't want you to have it anymore, like if it becomes politically incorrect.
  5. Still love King Of The Hill even after all this time, BTW. I miss the reruns on Adult Swim.
  6. You can always add USB 3.0 cards to your PCIe slots. Before I had a PC with USB 2.0 on it, I put in an expansion card to get USB 2.0 ports like 20 years ago.
  7. That might explain why your USB BD drive is dropping communications, resulting in a semaphore timeout error. Semaphore timeout errors are a result of USB communication errors. USB 2.x is generally not fast enough to keep with the throughput required for a BD drive, which need USB 3.0 enclosures. But, you said you were burning fine before, so that's probably not the case.
  8. Also, how long have you been using this Pioneer BD drive? You said you were burning BD-R fine and then it started acting up, which leads me to believe it's most likely the drive at fault. While Pioneer used to make the longest lasting drive I ever had (A BD that lasted for 2.5 years.) Pioneer's quality control has fallen off a cliff. Now you get about the usual 7 months lines span of something like, say, an LG BD drive. Not to mention the nagging 8x Ritek DVD+RW formatting failures that have plagued the firmware for the past 5 years and Pioneer refuses to do anything about, despite my repeated telling them the problem and how to fix it.
  9. Oh, you're probably right! I do have a job that loads automatically on start of ImgBurn to set all my default options. And I bet the job has the previous setting saved in it where I had that option checked before. That's why it keeps getting reset. I didn't think about that one.
  10. Is there a way to permanently disable Add To Write Queue When Done? If you uncheck the box and close ImgBurn, the box is enabled again. I looked in the Settings and didn't find anything. Now, disabling Add To Write Queue When Done is the only way to get ImgBurn to shut up that I should have used the DVD file when creating BD sized ISO's now in Build Mode. Thanks!
  11. What exactly triggers the production of MDS files when the option is selected? For instance, for DVD-5 ISO's, no MDS is made, but for DVD-9's it is. MDS is also generated for any "CD sized" ISO files made from DVD's that are "CD sized." I am guessing MDS might be generated for DVD-9 to store layer break information? But, what about the "CD sized" ISO's? Thanks!
  12. 8 months is about on average from what I've seen before a drive needs replacing. It varies. I've seen things from 2 months to 2 and a half years. If you search your ImgBurn log, you'll see references to a Disc ID. MCC is part of that DID string. MCC stands for Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, which means Mitsubishi made those discs for Verbatim. Mitsubishi MCC is the best stuff out there. Not be confused with CMC, which stands for CMC Magnetics, the worst optical disc manufacturer out there. Of course, now, CMC, OWNS Verbatim, just to confuse things!
  13. I checked the log. You're using the AZO/DataLife Plus discs from Verbatim, which are the best stuff out there, so that's not the problem. Since it fails at precisely the same spot on different players on the same disc, it's most likely the media that's the problem, which means, in this case, it's probably the drive not writing properly to them. Have you always used this same ASUS drive back when the burns were working? Now, it could be a running change in the manufacturing process of the MCC's. For instance, on the LG WH16NS60, the MCC's had a change in the manufacturing process where firmware 1.02 no longer properly wrote to them. A firmware update, 1.03, apparently fixed it; I'm still testing it. Your best bet is to isolate the drive. Do as you intend and replace the drive. See where it goes from there. Verify, as far as I've seen, is really only for catastrophic failures. Data can still be "read" but not necessarily on the first try. And what reads on one hardware may not on another. Plus, PC drives are far more "forgiving" of read issues than things like standalone DVD players. As to my first point in the paragraph, I've seen, many times, DVD+RW that will pass a Verify, but will not play when put in a PS3 because it had actually reached the end of its life span. Never could figure that one out.
  14. Yes, the Log will most likely tell us what I think is the problem. You're probably using something like the Verbatim Life Series DVD's, not the DataLife Plus/AZO series, you bought in a brick and mortar store. Those will be the CMC junk which may complete a burn and Verify, but have playback issues with many devices.
  15. You'll probably be better off in the long run using those Verbatim. Even if your drive/cables/ports turn out to be the issue when you sort it out, you'll be better off using the quality discs from Verbatim. They'll last longer and have fewer disc playback compatibility problems.
  16. I also did some Googling on the drive you're using. You're using an LG USB BD burner I've had a few times in the past a few years back. I didn't have problems with those Verbatim BD-R I linked before with that drive.
  17. Yeah, those are most likely the CMC junk. HP has made little but junk since 2000 and HP does not make its own optical discs. They farm out to other manufacturers, particularly CMC. Since you linked Amazon.com, I'm going to guess you're ordering from America, like I do. Here's what I've been using for almost 10 years: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GSQ4DBM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I've had a 99.9% success rate with these. These are the quality Verbatim BD-R. If you have failures with those, then the problem is the drive you're using or the USB cable or port.
  18. If the BD-RE work, what BD-R were you using? I use the Verbatim VERBAT-IM media, but, depending on where you live in the world, Verbatim may only make CMC BD-R. Ah, I see there's a majorly updated forum software release.
  19. Have you switched brands of BD-R? Are the discs you used in the log the same ones you've always used? If not, trying a different USB port, replacing the cable, or replacing the USB drive don't work, this may be the answer: I 03:13:33 Destination Media Type: BD-R (Disc ID: CMCMAG-BA5-000) If you switched to a different brand of discs, using the cheap CMC junk could be responsible. I've seen CMC throw up all kinds of errors, so I wouldn't put it past throwing an error that causes the drive to disconnect. Meaning, it's not the actual disconnect that's the problem but the burning error causes the disconnect. Seems unlikely, though. If you have any BD-RE, try testing those and see if the problem persists. Or try burning some other discs like DVD-R or DVD+R DL and see if it disconnects on those.
  20. Both types were announced, but never actually went into production. Some specifications for them must have actually be finalized and released, though, because things like DVDInfo were designed to report if a drive supported those types of media. See the last entry here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_recordable#Dual_layer
  21. As long as you don't intend any long term storage, BD-RE are fine. I know DVD+RW will last at least 5 years sitting on a shelf and still be readable; I know this from experience. But, for longer term storage, I wouldn't trust rewritables for that. Yes, the ISO thing should make a difference, but it does. LUK couldn't fathom it either but when someone else posted their results, I tried it on mine. Sure enough, I bore out the on fly success, too. Now, I will say this about BD-RE DL's in the NS60. I don't know if it's an inherent issue in them, but I burned a few that had been written to once as they were yearly backup discs. A year later when I went to update the backups, the disc wasn't usable again, even after only that one write had been done to them. Anyway, of the BD burners that are out there, the NS60 has the fewest issues, unfortunately.
  22. I think I see what's going on. You either have file splitting enabled or your target location where you're making the image file to is FAT. If it's the 2nd option, you can't make an ISO of that disc because it's larger than 4 GB. You'd have to save your image file to an NTFS partition. What you need to do to burn the image is load the MDS file in ImgBurn for Writing. The .I00 and .I01 are your image files. It has been split, either by settings you set in ImgBurn or ImgBurn did it automatically because the target location is on a FAT partition. Check the following setting: Tools --> Settings --> Read --> Page 1 --> Options --> File Splitting. If it's set to Auto, you can't make the ISO for the reason I suggested earlier. If it's set to 4 GB, you can try changing it to Auto and see if you get an ISO.
  23. I have never burned BD-R DL in the WH16NS60, but I have burned several BD-RE DL in it. I've had no issues with those, but I cannot say what the performance of BD-R DL would be. The WH16NS40 failed to burn BD-RE DL 90% of the times I tried in ImgBurn except, strangely, when burning on the fly contents instead of ISO's. Other forum users encountered the same thing. It's weird and shouldn't make a difference, but it's a fact.
  24. Are there any other files ImgBurn is generating? What is the file size of the .MDS? It is several hundred MB's to a few GB? If the .MDS is large enough, that's the image file that is being generated. If that's the case, I'd just try loading the MDS file for Write mode and see if ImgBurn will load it.

You are using DVD-R DL and hardly anyone uses those anymore. My guess is it's the drive you're using. It doesn't like those kinds of discs you're using. TSSTcorp have been known to be problematic drives. You could try seeing if there's a firmware update for this drive. The issue will need to be tackled by a firmware update, but there may not be one available and, frankly, companies really don't care when you tell them the firmware needs updating. In Read or Write mode, right click on the drive and choose the last option in the context menu to check for firmware updates. Barring that, there are 2 solutions: 1.) try a different kind of disc. Try the Verbatim DataLife Plus (Not the Life series.)/AZO DVD+R DL. Generally when you want to burn a double layer disc, you go with DVD+R DL anymore. 2.) replace your drive with something else.
