Buffers going crazy on certain flics

Recommended Posts

I burned these last night and some if not all were going nuts w/the buffers. Any input as to why this may happen is greatly appreciated. Thnx. I want to make sure it isn't the flics, and if it is what can be done to rectify it. Here's logs:

Defrag your F: drive any stop using it for anything else during the burn.

 

Lightning there's a lot of flics and music on my F: drive. Defragging it will take a very long time. What do you suggest as a defragmenter? One of the freebies like Defraggler? Or do I need to be careful not to delete anything during defragmentation? Let me know because I haven't defragged any of my storage drives. Thnx.

PerfectDisk if you want to pay for it, Defraggler if not.

 

Leave the drive alone whilst it's defragging - do it overnight or something.

Thnx.You suggested to just use the drive for burning w/ImgBurn. That's really all I use it for except when to backup a flic and create a .iso. I use this drive and my other sorage drives as the destination target. Is that ok to continue, or is using, let's say the C: drive for all the work then just copying the flic over to the storage drive better? Reason I use another drive for the backup/copying/.iso is so there'll be less thrashing on the same drive due to bottle necking.

Yeah, it's good to use a different drive for things (must be a different physical drive of course, not just a partition!).

 

It just might be an issue burning from the drive if you're downloading to it or something at the same time.

 

8x is harding going to push a hdd (sub 10mb/s where modern hdds can average 80 or 90+) so there must be an actual reason for it being so slow and causing buffer recovery to kick in. Defragging is certainly the place to start.

The F: drive is a separate drive and I have it in my docking station via usb. I use it for storing all my video and music and some pics etc... I also use it to actually backup the flic so I won't have to copy and paste it from another destination to the F: drive. So you're saying that the backing up on it is ok as long as I'm not burning w/ImgBurn at the same time, and vice versa? This is a Seagate and I did have to RMA it a while back. Maybe as you pointed out it is a issue w/the drive. I defragmented it already. I don't think the burners being ide would cause any issues correct? Guess you would of pointed this out. I'm using my Dell right now so it has the ide burners. My other builds have strictly sata drives.

Is it plugged directly on the computer? i.e. no USB hubs/etc. Have you tested it with HD Tune or similar benchmarks?

The Docking Station is a Thermal Take and it's plugged into a usb port for the transfer and connection to the PC. The station is plugged into a electrical power surge. I will run a test w/WD diagnostics and Google HD Tune. I've had no issues w/other drives in the docking station. The others are WD's and a Hitachi though. I'll see what's up w/the diagnostics. I wonder if the backup process via F&b resulted in a not so clean copy for some.
