Invalid Address for Write

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am having no end of trouble trying to burn a blu ray using Verbatim discs. I have tried 3 different discs from the pack at this point. In my TMPGE Authoring Works 6 program the process goes to the end, then won't write to the disc and gives me error code 00000f7c. I tried creating an ISO and burning that using File Explorer. It, too, goes through the motions, but in the end only tells me I have files waiting to be written, but it won't let me write them.

I can burn DVDs with my optical drive and it will play back blu rays, so that much of it is functioning.

This morning I downloaded and tried ImgBurn to burn the ISO, and this is what I am getting:

Hm, never seen a CD Control Error before.

W 07:42:16 Failed to Write Sectors 2816 - 2847 - Reason: CD Control Error

 

Is this BD burner internal or external?  If it's external, you could try a different USB port or replacing the USB cable and see if that helps.

 

I've also never heard of the model # of the drive you're using.  It could be a cheaper model and doesn't like those Verbatim discs.  You appear to be using the good Verbatim stuff, so it's not like you're using cheap discs.  You could try getting a different manufacturer and model of BD burner and see if that improves your chances.

 

Given that other software has returned failure errors, it's down to the drive, most likely.  It probably has a compatibility problem with Verbatim BD-R.  You could try and see if there's a firmware update for your burner.  In Write mode, right click on the drive in the target on the left side and choose the update firmware check option near the bottom of the options.

 

I would try first getting an external BD burner.  A different one than the make and manufacturer you're currently using if your BD drive is already external.

 

In the meantime, maybe LUK can better explain what a CD Control Error is.  By its description, it does sound like a hardware issue going on.

Thanks. It is actually the burner that came with the computer, which is 10 years old. I have been able to burn Verbatim discs in the past.

You may well be right about it being a hardware issue, particularly given the age of the unit, but I had a similar problem several years back with Sonic DVD/Blu Ray software. It would get to the end and then nothing. That is when I got TMPGE, which has worked fine until now.

Before I invest in a new drive (or computer) I might go through the recommended HP protocol of uninstalling the burner and ALL disc burning software, restarting the computer and starting from scratch.

Anyway, many thanks for the advice.

Definitely if you've got a 10 year old DVD burner, I'd blame that.  The best performance I ever got out of a drive was over 2 years before it needed replacing.  I've found most drives need replacing after 7 to 9 months of use.  But, I do use mine a lot.

You may want to try an external burner as that would be easier to replace than an internal one.  Easier to test with, too, to see if it resolves the problem.

Well this is crazy. After failing with multiple Verbatim discs I tried an old Sony re-writable blu ray and it looks like my burner is going to work with that.

Actually, it's not as crazy as it seems.  Different disc manufacturer and different disc type further indicates your drive has a compatibility problem with Verbatim BD-R.

 

My experience with Sony BD-RE was they're cheap, though.  The one I had died before its 5th write, but that's typical of the junk Sony has almost exclusively produced since 2002.

Yeah, don't necessarily believe in the 1,000 years thing.  While they will almost certainly outlast your lifespan, I doubt they'll last a millennium.  You were supposed to get hundreds of writes out of DVD rewritable media, but it's more like 25 to 50 before they die.
