Fail to burn to my very old Sony NEC Optiarc burner drive.


Recommended Posts

I tried both CDs (had to rewriteable since I was wasting discs!) and DVDs in my very old Sony NEC Optiarc burner drive (N:). Log examples with an ISO and copy files from my HDD:

I tried resetting back to defaults, test burn, and burning at 1X in ImgBurn. My other internal SATA DVD burner drive (M:; LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS50), and it had no problems. No problems with other software burners (BurnAware Premium, CDBurnerXP, StarBurn, and W7's Disc Image burner). What's wrong?

 

My detailed over decade old PC setup: Intel Core i7 950 CPU (quad-core; 1st gen.), three 2 GB of Kingston HyperX T1 Series 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model KHX2000C9AD3T1K3/6GX DDR3 RAM (6 GB total), EVGA X58 SLI (132-BL-E758; BIOS date 5/11/2010; v6.00 PG; release number IX58SZ64) motherboard, MSI R4870-T2D512 OC Radeon HD 4870 512 MB with 2 VGA+DVI adapters (one is connected to a 21.5" Samsung SyncMaster T22B350ND HDTV, Corsair Carbide Series 300R ATX mid-tower case, two onboard RealTek Gigabit Ethernets (only use one) and onboard RealTek HD Audio, Sea Sonic S12II Bronze (520 watts) power supply unit (PSU), a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 PCIe (dual tuners), LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS50 burner drive, Sony NEC Optiarc DVD-RW AD-7220S SATA burner drive, two internal 3.5" SATA hard disk drives (HDDs) [Seagate ST3320620AS 320 GB and Western Digital Purple Surveillance 2 TB (6 Gbs; 50 MB cache; WDC WD20PURX-64P6ZY0)], an optical USB three buttons Microsoft mouse, Logitech Z-2300 speakers (2.1 setup and analog), and updated 64-bit Windows 7 HPE SP1 (installed on 10/22/2016).

 

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon. :)

Your drive reported a 'write error'. It didn't like something about the disc... which is weird because you've told it to use 'Test Mode' and the drive isn't actually meant to be burning the disc.

I can't comment on any failures prior to that one (where you weren't using that CD-RW), as you didn't include log info for those.

My guess is your NEC gave up the ghost.  :death:  You said it's 10 years old, which is an amazing life span for an optical disc burner.  Plus, you said your other drive was writing to the same media fine?  Which leads me to believe the Optiarc is at fault.

Thanks. How come other disc burner softwares had no problems then? That's weird.

Oh, I failed to see that part in your original post.  You're right, that wouldn't explain why only ImgBurn is having a problem.  It would be because there's a difference in the code in what ImgBurn does versus that other application.

I wonder if there is a debug option to collect more detailed logs to see what's up. For now, I won't be using ImgBurn for this old drive and just use the other burners.

There’s no need for more ‘debug’ info. The drive reported a write error and that’s pretty much all there is to it.

You could try enabling the ‘perform opc before write’ option, that may help your drive do its job.

As I said though, all you’ve shown us is the log from test mode on a cdrw. Where’s the log from you attempting to burn the actual discs you want to be burning (before the multiple failures prompted you to use cdrw) ?

OK, this is getting weirder! Regular burning is fine now after three attempts with two different CD-RWs. Test mode still fails even with 'perform opc before write’ option.
