finalise the disc failed - why?

Recommended Posts

Help please ..

I was burning my first dual layer dvd and after following the guide left the machine running happily. On return I got a message saying that "finalise the disc failed" (see log below).

Any hints why and what I can do to get it right?

Thanks in advance

Ed

Have a look on rpc1.org and check to see if the 1.03 firmware is for your drive.

 

Seems to be (have a search on google and see what other users of that drive say)

 

http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?cate...p;manufactor=18

 

If it is then maybe update your firmware to 1.03 and see if that helps.

 

Those drives are pretty poor and troublesome as seems to be the complete range of matshita drives

Thanks but ... I know nothing about the firmware. .......

How do I find out what firmware is on the machine (a HP laptop running XP with a Matshits UJ-832S drive) and how risky is it to change the firmware?

imgburn tells us you have 1.02

 

http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=2180

 

go to the above website, click on 1.03 and save it on your pc, make sure there is no disc in the drive, double click on the downloaded firmware, avoid accidental power down when flashing , just follow the onscreen instructions , let the firmware install and afterwards, reboot your pc

A snag

Downloaded and ran the program. It checked the drive, OK then asked me to open the draw which I did, I then got a message "F/W loader does not apply to the DVD/CD-RW that you are using"

I not that the firmware is associated with Sony VAIO while I have a HP machine, but the device is the UJ-832S.

Again, and tips?

Is this your laptop

 

 

HP Compaq nw8240 Mobile Workstation

 

 

if so then I have uploaded the firmware to my rapidshare account

 

http://rapidshare.com/files/76304516/sp33693.exe

 

choose free user unless you have an account at rapid then enter 3 digit code and wait for link

Great firmware updated (& ImgBurn recognises this).

Have played a DVD, now to try the burn again.

Thanks for all the help

Will report back later

Well good and bad news.

The good news is that the burn ran for half an hour.

The bad news is that it stoped after half an hour (log below).

Also good to have done a firmware upgrade - even if you did all the work and simply clicked the OK prompt.

Perhaps I should not try to do dual layer discs on this drive

Thanks

Will try but as burning single layer DVDs and CDs has been really smooth ther has been no problem I am not too hopeful.

That means little when burning a DL disk. It may burn CDs fine (it's at a different focus) and even SL DVDs, but getting it to focus on layer 1 might be problematic. That's where a cleaning might come in handy.

It worked ....!!!

A £1.99 dvd cleaner from Aldi, which included what they called music! ... and now I've managed to burn a DL DVD.

Execllent.

many thanks to all who helped with this problem

But then the next 2 burns failed, even though I cleaned the head again.

So at least I know it is possible to burn DL DVDs with the sioftware and hardware that I have got , .... just not a very clever thing to do!

Again thanks to all who tried to help. I think I'll get some editing software and see about splitting the DVDs up!

Seasons Greetings
