Problem

Recommended Posts

Uh hi. Okay. So recently, I bought a pack of Sony DVD+RW's (DPW47L2) and I've had problems burning episodes on to them with my LG GSA-4167B. Unlike my DVD+RW Verbatim discs, it takes a long time for imgburn or my computer to recognize the disc.

 

AND when I burn more than one episode onto the disc, my Philips dvd player (DVP642) can't play this disc! When I burn only one episode, it plays after 10 seconds or so.

 

Doubt this is relevant but I can't forward/rewind any of the files on my dvd player. I could do this before with my Sony CD+RW's.

 

Help.

Hi and welcome to the forum, aztec! :)

 

Can you post a log file from one of these burns with the Sony +RW's?

 

You can find the log files here:

 

Main Menu -> Help -> ImgBurn Log files

 

But it sounds as your stand alone player don't like that brand of discs.

Do a Full erase on that disc and enable Verify the next time you burn to that disc. Also, in the Options tab, you might want to use filesystem(s) ISO9660 + Joliet.

 

By the way, you don't need to erase the DVD+RW before burning: just proceed as usual and, when asked, confirm to overwrite it :thumbup:

I'll put in my two cents worth of info.

 

There IS a problem with ImgBurn formatting Sony DVD+RWs. I have a small stack of them, and have been using them successfully with other software & standalone video DVD recorders. (These are real Sony DVD+RWs, not counterfeit, that came as a bonus with the Sony DVD recorder.)

 

Nero will properly format the disk everytime. Once the disk is formatted (either quick or full), then ImgBurn will properly recognize the disk and will burn successfully.

 

If the disk is formatted with the standalone DVD (TV video) recorder, ImgBurn will not successfully reformat & burn to the disk, UNLESS the disk has been completely filled and finalized on the standalone recorder.

 

Could the Sony DVD+RWs be missing or have slightly different some piece of info in the identification area built into every piece of media than what ImgBurn is expecting? This can be a concern, as Sony was one of the main backers of the "plus" format and wrote much of the specs.

 

I can't remember which brand, but a friend mentioned he had a similar problem with another brand with ImgBurn (they worked with Nero but not ImgBurn). Of course, he can't remember now, as the disks now work with ImgBurn after being first used with something else.

 

So, this should be a low priority issue worth tracking down sometime...

The command specs are there for a reason, these things aren't media specific.

 

If the ImgBurn format fails then your drive has the issue with the disc, not the program itself.

 

You might not want to believe that or understand it, but it's true.

 

Well... The behaviour occurs on two different computers with different burners:

Benq DW1625, Lite-On SHM-165H6S. I even once tried it on a borrowed Sony DRU-520UL with the same result.

 

Since I got a stack of 15 of them (going to last a while...), I'll just have to remember to QuickFormat or use them with something else first.

Why not post the actual error so we can take a look for you?

It's deffo a drive thing.

 

Once the 'format' command has been sent to the drive, all ImgBurn does is poll it (via 'Test Unit Ready' and alike) to see when it's done. It's not doing any 'work', just playing a kid in the back seat of a car asking 'are we nearly there yet?'

 

If the polling commands don't get back a typical response - i.e. 'Long Write in progress', it throws up the 'Potential WaitImmediateIO Deferred Error' message with the error the drive reported - in this case' Session Fixation Error'.

 

The errors are 110% out of the software's control. It's purely a drive/firmware/media thing.

 

Nero doesn't wait for the format to finish, that's why the 'Formatted' status is left in limbo. I default to making ImgBurn wait until it's completely done.

Umm.... Interesting.

 

Like I said, this happens with multiple burners from more than one manufacturer - I can post similar results from the Benq and my buddy's Matshita but it's pretty much the same log. As mentioned previously, once the disc is formatted properly by something, ImgBurn will reformat (quick erase) and burn to the Sony DVD+RW no problem. The discs work well otherwise, in fact, one platter has been rewritten at least 50 times so far in the video recorder. (Unlike a certain major North American office supply retailer's private label that died on the 3rd & 7th reuse for 2 different discs - note that the staff had indicated that there was a warranty on the media, which there was not - painful, like getting stabbed by a staple.)

 

I'll just leave this as a community advisory that there can be some finicky media that just doesn't like simple formatting and has to be force formatted by something else.

 

Thanks for looking into it.
