  1. Because that's what the driver is reporting. Haven't we been through this a million time already?! x64 OS's often report the BusType as RAID, SCSI, ATAPI (none of which are common on x86 - they typically just use ATA), I guess that's just how the drivers are designed/built.

     

    The drivers are just a means of getting data from and sending data to the drive. They shouldn't have any effect on the actual outcome - apart from the commands being totally blocked - which is what normally happens with 'format' command and the advanced/vendor unique ones used for bitsetting.

     

    No, we haven't been through this even once let alone a million times! I've not heard of this but thanks for the info anyway. It clears up a lot of things.

     

    As for "The drivers are just a means of getting data from and sending data to the drive" if they are corrupt or incorrect from MS or the drive manufacturer couldn't that cause the problems I'm having? Maybe a FAQ on burners and OS's would be helpful?


  2. Are you expecting Device Manager to list them in the 'RAID' section or something?

     

    The value ImgBurn displays is just taken from the 'BusType' field in the STORAGE_ADAPTER_DESCRIPTOR descriptor which is returned by a call to DeviceIoControl(IOCTL_STORAGE_QUERY_PROPERTY).

     

    The OS *shouldn't* make any difference, after all, the software is talking to the drive directly. If the software submits a 'write' command then I'd expect a 'write error' return code to have come from the drive itself, not the OS.

     

    By all means boot up an Ubuntu Live CD or something and test the burner that way.

     

    Donloading the Ubuntu Live CD now. It sounds like a good CD to have around. Thanks for the info on it.

    Why would imageburn report the drives as RAID when RAID has never been enabled? I'm thinking that because the drives are reported as being RAID that is why I'm having problems burning.


  3. I 15:07:42 -> Drive 1 - Info: AlViDrv BDDVDROM 3.2c (J:) (SCSI)

    I 15:07:42 -> Drive 2 - Info: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24LS50 YP01 (D:) (RAID)

    I 15:07:42 -> Drive 3 - Info: Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7200S 102A (F:) (RAID)

    I 15:07:42 Found 2 DVD±RW/RAMs and 1 BD-ROM/HD DVD-ROM!

     

    It certainly knows it's found 2 burners so I don't see why it wouldn't show up.

     

    It just looks like the drive is having trouble burning to some of the discs. I never rate rewritables very highly, they often fail.

     

    What I'd do is try with some decent Verbatim / Taiyo Yuden media. (If possible, DVD+R Verbs or DVD-R Taiyo Yuden)

     

    For CD's, I'd only ever use Taiyo Yuden now.

     

    This doesn't explain why the burner worked just fine with diff media brands for quite some time or why imageburn sees the burners as RAID while device manager doesn't report them as RAID. I've had the same problem with Verbatim disk, both DVD-R and CD-R. I really believe it's something in windows 7, posiably caused by a windows update?


  4. Can you post a log from a DVD burn please?

     

    Try as many different DVD formats as you own. (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW etc)

     

    You could try uninstalling everything nvidia related from 'programs and features' in control panel and then uninstalling the controllers (inc the driver if that's an option) from within Device Manager and rebooting.

    Uninstalled everything Nvidia ask you suggested and it was reinstalled on boot. DVD drives still seen as RAID in imageburn but not in device manager.

     

    Here are the logs from my burns with the disk that I have. I also tried a couple of imation DVD-RWs and a Sony DVD-RW but the optiarc drive wouldn't see them, although they work fine on my xp system. Another note of interest is that imageburn doesn't see the Drive 2 - Info: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24LS50 YP01 (D:) (RAID) for writing noted in the log. Should imageburn be reinstalled to see it, as I just installed that drive.

    OKay, here's the logs in order in burns:

  5. That value comes from the Windows drivers. They're probably always running in a RAID type config, even if no RAID array has actually been configured.

     

    Some drivers, especially Nvidia ones, seem to do that an awful lot.

     

    Any way to replace Nvida's RAID drivers to just good old SATA drivers? Guess there's no way to replace the BIOS for one without RAID?

     

    Just had a thought: Although imageburn reports the drives as RAID and windows device manager doesn't ( or would it?) could my bruning problem lie somewhere else?


  6. Nope, as that information is provided by the driver. As for trying with RAID enabled, the driver should detect the change by itself, or else Windows just won't boot. In that case disabling RAID in the BIOS would take it back as it was and it'll work again.

     

    Does it hang if you try with Test Mode enabled? Please try with CD-R and DVD-R too if you can.

     

    Nope, didn't hang in test mode with either CD-R or DVD-R. Checked BIOS again and RAID is still disabled. Installed a LG Super Multi 24x I had and it's reported by imageburn as RAID also. After enabling RAID in BIOS it come up and wanted me to set an array. At that point I got out of it, mainly cause I don't know anything about raid. Went back into BIOS, disabled RAID and set sata 1 n 2 (the DVD drives) back to sata instead of RAID. Both DVD drives are still showing RAID in imageburn. Being new to imageburn I have to ask, could imageburn be reporting them wrong? Other than the BIOS, what sets RAID on these drives?


  7. Well, then try booting with RAID enabled in the system's BIOS just to see if it works.

     

    Rather not do that as I understand that I'll lose everything on the drive when I disable raid again. I don't like or need raid, that's why it's never been enabled. On boot the black screen says that raid is disabled.

    BTW, is there a registry value that sets this drive to raid that I could change?


  8. Do you know what model of mother board you have?

     

    (It should be stated in the list in the ma-config.com page.)

     

    Motherboard: SMBios version 2.5

    Dell Inc 0PP150 A00

    Bios: Dell Inc. 1.0.13 05/05/2009 taille: 1024Kb

     

     

    Chipset: North bridge: NVIDIA C55

    South bridge: NVIDIA nForce 410/430 (MCP51)


  9. It is connected to a RAID port on mainboard. They look the same but they are controlled by different chips.

     

    You have to identify wich one are regular and wich are RAID ports. Offen regular SATA are red colored and RAID are diffrent.

     

    Check with your mainboard manual and move the burner to a regular SATA connection.

     

    I looked at the connections on the motherboard and the DVD drive is connected to a SATA connection and in BIOS it's set as sata also. Although the MB has RAID capability it is not turned on nor never has been. Why would the DVD drive be reported as being RAID when RAID was never setup on the computer? Now I am confused! lol Could it be something corrupt in the BIOS? There is an update to the BIOS, should I flash it?

    Thx for all your help!


  10. Have you tried to attach the burner to a non RAID connector?

     

    RAIDS + optical drives are normally not a happy marriage.

     

    Could also see if you have the latest chip set drivers installed.

    Now I'm really confused???? Although RAID is available it's not turned on. I've added another drive some time ago but haven't touched the DVD drive or it's connections, yet it's reported in the log as being on RAID. I'm not versed in RAID so any help getting it off RAID will be appreciated.


  11. I've included my last imageburn log file.

    That's not a log. It's disc information.

    Sorry, my bad. Here's the log.

  12. It seems Win 7 x64 is getting worse and worse about having problems burning CDs and DVDs. It's kind of a hit and miss effort. I get differant errors or can't find the burner drive or can't verfiy the image after burning, it may just hang or can't close the disk. In short, if you can thing of an error it's probably done it. I've tried 4 differant CD and DVD media type manufacers, mostly all cd-r or dvd-r and cd-rw and dvd-rw. It may burn the disk and then can't read it or no telling what it will come up with. There has been no errors with error numbers so I'm kind of at a loss on that. I've included my last imageburn log file.

     

    Also, here's a write mode file.
