    Invalid address for write

    Thanks for sharing your analysis. I need to figure out why: The original optical drive in the Dell XPS 8500 had the problem. A new Liteon drive updated to the latest firmware has the problem. A Sony Optiarc drive has the problem. Replaced the SATA cable and plugged into a different SATA II header on the motherboard has the problem. I'm testing in safe mode now and will do that all day to see what happens. One thing I notice is that using the Win8 resource monitor, the network "TCP Connections" graph is maxing out when the normal Win8 is running. But when in safe mode, the "TCP Connections" drops down to horizontal line number 2 (out of 10 horizontal lines) after about 30 seconds and stays there. Think that the TCP Connections maxing out in normal Win8 could be the problem? The problem appears to be solved. Actually prior to posting here, I noticed a high amount of TCP Connections so was wondering if an infection was causing secret internet connections. Or if it wasn't the TCP Connections, maybe a different infection was causing the problem. I was thinking about using the Windows "Startup" to disable all of the startup programs or to use Safe mode to do the same + the minimal driver loads. If it was an infection, then using "Startup" to disable start up programs might not have stopped the problem from happening. Using Safemode seemed like a more sure way but I was wondering if even that would stop any infection from doing its thing. Luckily Safe mode did appear to stop the problem from happening. (Intermittent problem so couldn't say for sure.) A restore of an earlier backup did not resolve the problem so I restored a backup that was done when I first setup the PC for my friend. Since doing that restore, the problem has not happened. Will see how it goes in actual use but the problem appears to have been resolved. Thanks for the help, Raptor88

    Oh, just knowing that the error comes directly from the drive is very helpful. That means the address Imgburn sends to the drive is getting corrupt between the CPU > Southbridge chip that has the SATA controller > SATA cable > optical drive. I have replaced the optical drive plus tried an Optiarc drive, and I replaced the SATA cable and plugged the SATA cable into a different SATA port on the motherboard. So would you say that the problem is probably in the Southbridge chip on the motherboard? Your best guess is fine. Thanks, Raptor88

    Haven't tried the test burns in safe mode yet since the problem is not happening in normal mode no matter how many times I've tried it till now. That's the intermittent nature of my problem. The log from a previous error shows: Failed to write sectors xxxxxx - xxxxxx. Reason: Invalid address for write. (where xxxxxx are numbers) What exactly causes an invalid address to be created in the first place? ... 1. Is the correct address generated by Imgburn and then gets corrupted somehow? ... 2. How does Imgburn know the address is invalid? (if it created the address in the first place) Trying to understand what could cause an invalid address for write in test mode to help me troubleshoot this problem. Thanks, Raptor88

    Also restored a Dec 2014 backup that was done when Imgburn was working fine and before this problem started happening. Invalid address for write problem started in about March 2015, so I doubt that it is an infection or Windows 8 problem.

    Also forgot to mention that this problem is intermittent. When it's working, it can complete the test burns successfully many times. When it's having the problem, it can happen consecutively. All fans in the PC working. Problem can happen anytime during the day.

The optical drive was replaced with the new Liteon drive for this problem. Running Windows 8 with the Classic Shell. Thanks, Raptor88

    Dell XPS 8500, i5, 8GB ram, new Lite-on iHAS124 drive. Upgraded the drive's firmware from 4L08 to 4L0A.

    Which layer break?

    Thanks a lot for that info. Will look for it on my next DL burn. Raptor

    Which layer break?

    My impression is that it's not enabled by default. I see now that the "seamless layer break" checkmark is in the GENERAL > DISPLAY WARNING section. I can't seem to find it elsewhere. Could you tell me what the path is to that option?

    write error

    You can't burn at 2.4x, your drive only sees the quoted speeds. Try faster burning and cleaning the drive. Well that makes perfect sense. I'll try to burn on 4x speed. FWIW, my drive is the same as yours, a LG GH22NP20 running firmware 1.04, and it burned a DL Verbatim 2.4 DVD+R disc perfect. I did use the 2.4 burn speed setting and got the same "W 14:22:26 Write Speed Miscompare! - Wanted: 3,324 KB/s (2.4x), Got: 5,540 KB/s (4x)" entry in the ImgBurn log. I used the verify option and the disc verified with no errors and the disc plays back perfect. Raptor

    Burning to double-layer DVDs fails.

    Short of buying a new burner drive, maybe order some Verbatim 2.4 DVD +R discs from amazon. I ordered a 20 pack with free shipping since I couldn't find any locally and my first DL burn came out perfect. Raptor

    Which layer break?

    I see that the seamless option in ImgBurn is checked by default. So the DL disc I just burned should have that option. I'll test the disc on my current DVD player (that always pauses at layer breaks) and then use that disc to test players in the store (if they will let me do it.) The problem of course is that stores normally have one player feeding all of their displays so they may not allow testing except to use the "buy, bring home, test, return" procedure. BTW, question for anyone. Is there a way to determine where the layer break is on commercial DVDs by examining the Video_TS file on the disc? I mean the original DVDs in my collection that I did not rip yet. Just nice to know info so no big deal. Thanks for your help, Raptor

    Which layer break?

    Hi mmalves & Cynthia, Thank you both for always helping us ImgBurn challanged folks. Cynthia, I never knew about the seamless option. Is it hard to find out if that option exists for a stand alone player? Since I'm thinking about buying a new upconverting DVD player (not bluray), any recommendations for a brand/model? Thanks, Raptor
  15. Raptor88

    Which layer break?

    I successfully burned my first DL DVD on my first attempt using ImgBurn. Used Verbatim 2.4 DL disc per mmalves suggestion. One question. During ImgBurn's setup process, it displayed four layer breaks all of which were "average". When I previewed all four, they were all in the same scene quite close together. So I just selected the first layer break on the list and crossed my fingers. Is there a preferred way to choose which layer break to use? Like is the first or last break preferable to middle ones? Just want to learn the best way from the pros. Thanks, Raptor
