ImgBurn not reading disc.


Recommended Posts

Hello. I have used ImgBurn successfully to create ISO's of several PS2 games that I had, and have tried several times to take the ISO's of two particular discs. However the program wouldn't read either of them. I even had the disks professionally buffed and cleaned and one of them did say it was "finding media" or something of that sort, but it was taking far too long. I opened and closed the disc drive and now it just says "Device not ready. Medium not present. Tray Closed." I searched for a log, and all I found was this one (which was probably during the aborted initial attempt).

Load the program without a disc in the drive.

Go into Read mode

Put the disc in the drive and keep an eye on the status bar of the main window.

If the drive goes through the motions of trying to initialise the disc and then just ends up saying medium not present, it means your drive can't read the disc (at all). This is not an ImgBurn issue.

Another drive may have more luck reading the disc.

I tried the method, and it very very slowly came up with this.

That's probably a drive or disc issue.  Try another drive.  Preferably, get a USB one you can easily hook up and disconnect afterwards.  TSSTCorp drives have been known to be problematic sometimes.  Or the drive may simply be at a point where it's getting old.  If a different drive can't read the disc, the issue is most likely the disc has gone bad.  The PS2 is almost 21 years old since initial release, so it wouldn't surprise me if a disc has become unreadable, particularly if it was well played.
