    Verification fails

    Thank you for the suggestion: I will do that (It was this thread btw that got me started in the first place: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=137886) Ya. I already tried the Imations, they also didn't work. Problem is, over here the disks can't be bought per 1 piece; you need to buy a box of 5 (imation) or 10 (Verbatim). It gets expensive I will try that as well. I will try that at if all else fails. I'm starting to very seriously dislike all this dual layer stuff; on reading on other boards as well, it's easy to see this is by fat mature technology as single layer is We consumers appear to be the prototypers (which makes me wonder right now: is Dual Layer a Microsoft product ? )

    Hi Cornholio7, Thanks for the explanation. I think this disk *can* be backed up, since I have been offered illegal disks of this version. I didn't buy those, but a friend of mine bought one and reported it worked.

    Thank you very much for replying, Lightning It is all clear to me now That leaves me with only one question then before I remove it from the comp and go back to the store; is it possible that this drive can burn single layer perfectly but does not burn dual layer? Is that technically possible? Thanks again for your help

    Hi Cornholio7, Thanks for replying. What do you mean with ptp? If you mean P2P, like in filesharing network, the answer is no. It is an original disk I bought directly from Pioneer, and want to backup before it gets damaged and Pioneer charges me the full price (270 EUR = 300 US$). Like said, I created an ISO and MDS of this disk with dvddecrypter, and want to burn that one with imgburn. Like said, in my country, Belgium, laws explicitly state it is completely legal to duplicate a disk you originally bought yourself for your own private use; so I'm not violating any laws. If you mean something else with ptp, I have no clue

    The drive is brand new, I've flashed the firmware from 1.3 to 1.5 without any errors, I've switched from Imation to Verbatim, and the drive did burn a single layer +R succesfully (same way, dvddecrypter ripped the disk and burned it. I've switched to imgburn because dvddecrypter couldn't write the dual layer successfully). Would you then still think it's a drive/media/firmware issue? No, I don't I forgot to mention I tried that also and that also went fine. I don't understand what you are saying What would you suggest for me to be next step? Thanks in advance PS As a matter of fact I forgot to say what I'm trying to burn; maybe this is relevant. I have a Pioneer DVD navigation system in one of my cars and I just bought the newest navigation DVD (270 Euros). When that would damage I would need to buy a new one for the full retail price. As the laws in my country allow me to make a backup copy for personal use (which is not considered a copyright infringement) this is what I am now trying to do. The single layer disk I burned succesfully is also a navigation DVD, but it's from the built in navigation system in my wife's car. I actually bought the Philips burner to be able to do this and skip future large replacement costs (Pioneer tricked me into this one time already).

    Hi Lightning, Thanks for getting back to me I've used a certain program called dvddecrypter. Maybe you've heard of it Just kidding Well, at least that would explain why I can't even access the disk at all after having "burned" it. I could open and extract the ISO without any problems (using winrar; that eats about anything ). I can try to create a new ISO, but how do I know if it's ok then? I've tried to run imgburn in test mode, but although I customized imgburn for that (choosing BenQ as the drive and imgburn returning that the setting was changed succesfully), when I try to do it the program returns the message that testmode is not possible and that it will be an actual burn. I don't want to spoil the costly DVDs if I can prevent it, so is there a way to check the ISO and MDS are ok? Thanks for your help PS Somewhere else it is suggested to use CloneCD, and not dvddecrypter & imgburn because the latter wouldn't be capable of handling my copy attempt; would you happen to agree with that (probably a stupid question since you're the author of these two programs )

    Thank you, Spinningweel, for trying to help me out But: what does "cross flashing" mean Is that simply using the BenQ firmware to flash this drive, or is it something else? Is it absolutely safe to do this? (Could you perhaps give me the link to the concerning thread ) Would Lightning perhaps be willing to explain what the error message means exactly? (I take it he defined it )

    You indeed are Lightning (fast) I am now attaching the log file as a plain text. Errorlog.txt

    Wow you are fast I'll try adding it as a plain text file then? This was my main text: Hi all, I'm having some problems burning an iso created with dvddecrypter (latest version). Igmburn also is at the latest version. I'm using Verbatim DL +R on a Philips DVDR1660, patched to the latest firmware (P1.5). The burning seems to be going ok according to the log, but the verification doesn't. Consequently, I also can't read the DVD (XP says "insert valid disk"). Before using Verbatim I used Imation DVDs, but this went wrong at burn itself, not at the verification. So it seems I'm one step further now; the burn went right. But the verification didn't. I have no clue what the error message: Failed to read Sector 0 - Logical Block Address out of Range means, so I thought I'd post my troubles here. I'm appreciating help very much ;-) Thanks in advance & bye, Mike

    Hi all & Huh #39;( This weird I try to post my problem description including the imgburn log, and then I get: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server. Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server at forum.imgburn.com Port 80 But when I type in this text I am allowed to post it? Is the forum filtering some stuff I accidentally posted and which I am not aware of?
