Problem with burning BD-R DL Verbatim discs

Recommended Posts

Hi! I've a big problem!

 

I bought these BD-R 50gb (VERBAT-IMf-000) and i try to copy an ISO file (as usual) but i received this error:

 

"Failed to Write Sectors 0 - 31 - Reason: Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format

and

"Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format" for many many times.

 

I never had this type of problem with my LG BD-RE BH10LS30.

 

What can i do to solve this big problem?

 

Please... help me!!!

 

Thanks!!!

This is the real problem, the first error

W 19:42:47 Failed to Write Sectors 0 - 31 - Reason: Program Memory Area Update Failure

There is a pinned thread about this problem http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=7860

 

Make sure you use the latest firmware (1.00-09) on your drive http://www.firmwarehq.com/LG/BH10LS30/files.html

 

Yo can see more firmware version information by going to the Device Capabilities window and when checking for firmware updates.

 

Rightclick on the drive and select one of the last options from the context menu.

If it's the first and only time, you might just have to try another disc.

 

I burnt those at 6x during my tests - that's their actual rated speed yeah?

Do you think that the speed writing can be the problem?

 

This is the first time with these discs (VERBAT-IMf-000).

 

I try with the speed at 2x... you say that it will be better to write at 6x? :wacko:

Thanks, but do you know if my bd burner lg bh10ls30 can burn this type of BD-R disc (VERBAT-IMf-000)? :mellow:

 

I don't know if this error: "Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format" may be caused from the speed writing... :wacko:

That's the "real" error.

 

A different speed/disc might work.

Thanks Cynthia, but i burned at 2x, is it possible for you that this error appears because I burned with speed too low? :o

I've had this issue with PMAU errors on my Lite-Ons and in that case it seems related to the amount of sectors for a specific disc image. It also happens at the end of the burn in my cases.

In this case you get it at the start of the burn and I've never had a LG burner so it might be the speed that is the issue.

so it might be the speed that is the issue.

 

Than, if i burned at 2x and i have failed the copy, will must try to burn at 4 or 6x of speed.... right?
