Verify error

Recommended Posts

My last 2 writes went wrong on the verify at ~8-10%, so I have decided to make a Disocery run. The log can be found below. Could my drive crashed or I had just got a crapy pile (or fake) discs...

 

AE

 

 

PS.: I have already written ~10 discs from this pack without errors. Sadly I do not have the sources to re-verify them... :(

PS2: I'm using the drive (the whole pc) standing in vertical position (the writer is standing vertically to), because I don't have space to put the machine right on its base... It is an office pc however (DELL Optiplex), so it has standings on it' left side, which is the 'bottom' of the machine now. I have already written ~100 discs in this position and generated only 1-2 bad discs (excluded the last 3) so far.

Tomorrow I'll try the next disc in my office PC at work, lets see what an another drive says... Anyhow, I'm waiting for any comments.

Remove any disc from the burner, close the tray, apply the latest firmware available (US09) then reboot your computer. Also try burning at other speeds. As a last resort, you might want to use a cleaning disc on that burner. Have you tried DVD+Rs?

 

As for those ~10 burnt discs, if you had Verify enabled when your burnt them, and they passed the verify process, then they're fine and you don't need to worry about them.

Sadly I do not know what to do with the lastest firmware... All the linked files but the last are normal .bin files which could be applied with the flash utility, but the last one seems that the flash utlity has been integrated with the bin file (assumed by it's size). However the flash utility does not recognize the drive, or some other error occured, because there is no option in the utility to update the DVD... screenshot attached.

I have tried the device query tool found in the firmware webpage which identified the drive right, the update for the file is right (at least it seems so), I could re-flash the drive with the US08 firmware, but at the end, I could not update the drive to US09 with the new 'One Click' integrated firmware update utility.

edit:

BTW the firmware page specifies the update as 'Windows Vista Support' which is unneeded in my case since I am using XPSP2.

One more questions...

 

Can I verify a Discovery disc in an another drive? I know that it only contains zeros, but I need an image to verify the disc to, which is dinamically created by ImgBurn during the write process. Can I create the same 'discovery' ISO as well with ImgBurn? If not, can someone send it attached (I think the iso zipped should not be too big)

I have tried to read one two of the DVD's in my office PC DVD reader. The log can be found below (I have pressed continue once after the first read error...)

The next disc seems OK with an another drive... It seems so far, that my writer broke (or dislike these disks) :(

Try this one: TS-H552U_US09.zip

It's exactly the same from Samsung, but in ZIP format. Run SFDNWIN.exe and manually load the TS-H552U_US09.bin file (click the first button on the top left corner). It should start the flashing process as soon as you've selected the firmware (if it doesn't then click the second button on the top left corner). Remember that there should be no disc in the drive and the tray must be closed before doing this.

I have teared up the pc's top yesterday, and cleaned it through. Disassembled the DVD writer and blown out a half bucket of dust resting there. After a half-an-hour cleaning tested the drive with the new US09 firmware on the next disc and it worked like newer before...

Apart from joking: after cleaning the drive, updating the firmware and burning the 2nd next disc in the box, it went without problems. I do not really know whether some discs were faulty or the firmware was outdated, but cleaning the drive is never useless... I should have done it before crying :)

I have been having this a similar on several different computers, but these discs seemed to work for a few burns, but now, even the new ones fail straight away

 

==edit==

I should mention that small files, like 8 megs work fine, and one of 640 ish don't work

I don't know how big the biggest non-failing file is

Damn... I still have problems :( 2 successful writes, and the very same defect again. Verify error at ~8%...

I think the head moving spindle (it that the right term?) should be defect. It seems I have to get rid of the writer...

I'll have a try with an another disc (TDK), if it gives the same problem...

Crappy disc's is a part of your problem. Switch to Taiyo Yuden cd's. Your problem is with cd's so if changing to better media doesn't help...start a new thread 2ith a log of the burn and a description of the problem. :thumbup:

 

 

ArchElf;

 

:yes: time for a new one. TDK is not what we recommend here so it's 50/50 whether it would be a fair test of the drive anyway. :thumbup:

I think if it fails in the same place, it should not be the pack of Verba discs that were defect. Anyway the screachy sound coming out from the drive during spinup is not reassuring...

It sounds like the disc is not fixed right during spinup, or placed eccentric and drive slows down and release the disc for a moment to correct the placement... The veird sound effect is produced only after I put the disc into the drive, but not when the drive is opened and closed before the verify process.

The TDK works fine. I feel like a stupid... Is my drive bad or what??? I'm getting angry.

The graph does not seem 'perfect'. It looks like there *is* something around that head-position.

for second thought it is not... it's around 15%

I'm thinking in buying a new drive. I have two drives in mind:

LG E60L

PX 810US

Both are external, but the Plex one costs around double. Do anyone have experience with any of the above?

Don't pay over the odds for the Plextor, I'm pretty sure it's just a rebranded Pioneer 112/212.

I've bought the LG writer. I'm just done with the first write (not a discovery, an image write) pasting the PIPO images below. Since the drive cannot produce PIPO scan the scans were made by the old writer.
