I've been using imgburn for a couple of weeks now without any problems.

But recently when I burn images, halfway through it says there's been an i/o error.

I cleaned the drive and tried to burn another image but there was still an error.

Here is the log from my last attempt; please help:

Do you know if this computer has nvidia chipset?

 

 

 

Hi Cynthia. Thanks for the welcome. I have an Intel 4 Series Express. I tried downloading the new firmware but it didn't help. I tried burning another disc and got this:

Well, they aren't working now, are they? Couldn't you buy 5 Verbatim 2.4x (MKM-001-00 dye) DVD+R DL blanks for testing? Alternatively you could get an external burner that can burn your precious Memorex blanks.

cus I don't buy cheap media

 

Memorex is crap....period...this batch was made using

Disc ID: RICOHJPN-D01-67
dye since the brand is simply rebadged from one manufacturer to sell as another brand,

 

Do yourself a favor and try either Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden discs. Since it's DL you want Verbatim (Made in Singapore if at all possible since their other countries of origin are getting a bad reputation also.
