  1. for that project you only need single layer ( normal) discs . get -R if thats what your dvd players will play

    Dual layer are more expensive than 2x single layer discs anyway.


    if it was for Dual layer, then verbatim +R , 2.4x.made in singapore with disc ID of MKM-001 are the ONLY ones to get, dont bother with the dual layer -R , get the superior +R instead and change book type to DVD-ROM :thumbup:

  2. hi basically ive followed da above approach that cynthia has suggested and selected da write files to disc


    i used a verbatim dl disc 2.4x


    it looked like it worked but when i plonked it in my xbox 360 it came up as mixed media disc,


    any help guys please?


    i would much appriciate it



    post a log file of the burn , otehrwise its just a guessing game for us

  3. and your choice of disc is one that we recommend,


    user is using FujiFilm and NOT genuine Taiyo Yudens. the fact the OP used these discs for years without problems could be a bad batch of discs, or even a change in quality of taiyo dye that fuji are using.


    nothing is as good as Genuine Taiyo discs

  4. I'm running Windows XP with 1.5gig RAM, 300gig hard drive spare, a brand new (3 days old!!) DVD burner and an ASUS motherboard with an AMD Sempron processor.


    and I'm cross!! Does this thing EVER work?


    Yours puzzledly




    as youve been told, your choice of media is rubbish. change to decent stuff like taiyo yuden and this will be solved.

    as you said, it doesnt even verify sectors that it just wrote, so either your drive is bad at reading or the disc its reading is rubbish ?. which one do you think is correct ?. You spent decent money on a decent writer, then expect it to perform miracles by using cheap media !


    for some reason you chose 6x as the write speed !! the discs your using only support 4x and 8x , so why choose 6x ?

    I 08:06:28 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: ProdiscF01) (Speeds: 4x, 8x)

    I 08:06:28 Write Speed: 6x

    youve got the read speeds on MAX , so this probably won help with verifying.

    I 08:24:37 Read Speed (Data/Audio): MAX / MAX

    you have a I/O restriction of some kind from the hdd you used to the writer,

    W 08:08:02 Waiting for buffers to recover... (LBA: 94880)

    W 08:08:08 Waiting for hard disk activity to reach threshold level.


    your line in the title 'This thing does not burn ISOs, no way, no how' was enough to make Angry, then your comment "and I'm cross!! Does this thing EVER work" did the trick :rolleyes:

    Im only replying to you because its obvious you dont know what your doing with the software, by explaining whats wrong to you, and proving the fact its down to the user's lack of knowledge and not the program.

    Merry Xmas

  5. I/O interface as in TOOLS > SETTINGS > I/O tab ,





    Patin Coffin ( vso convertx2dvd)


    from our FAQ page ( for a differant problem to yours though)

    Install ASPI or an application that installs ElbyCDIO on your machine - i.e. CloneDVD*. Then go into the settings and on the I/O tab, select the appropriate 'Interface'.


    you may need to install other bits, or may already have the necassary already on your PC ,

  6. what would be better for us is to see a log file from one of these burns . you can find them y hitting the HELP button then Logs.

    looks like a verify error, but can tell you more from log file

  7. That disc has been used before, you need to use a brand new disc so we can see the real error.


    Have you tried new discs at faster speeds? i.e. 4x or 6x


    Have you tried using MKM-001-00 media instead of MKM-001-00? They're the 2.4x verbs rather than the newer 8x ones. Make sure you go for ones made in Singapore too.


    think you meant MKM-001 instead of MKM-003 ? :whistling:

  8. has using verbatim discs been confirmed to resolve this error for some people?


    No, never been confirmed !! OF COARSE its been confirmed, Thats why you was told to go and buy some.


    You even said in your first post

    I have been using Memorex 2.4x-8x dvd dls (lol i know...i know). I realize that Memorex dvds dont work well but im suspicious that the problem could lie elsewhere due to the fact that the burning process never actually starts.


    the burning process never starts because those memorex discs are shite, you even agree that they "dont work well".

    stop panicking and go and buy some verbatims

  9. get some verbatims MKM-001's ( made in singapore)next time, your current ones are the MKM-003 ones, there more reliable in more writers, and it DOES matter what speed you burn at.


    laptops are not as fast as a normal or external writer, they suffer more I/O errors. try changing your write speed to 2.4x instead of Max . you'll notice your average write rate was only 3.8x anyway so turn it back to 2.4x and give your laptop a chance

  10. Hi cynthia,


    The computer hope post was my husband before i posted on here, he did not get any replies so i posted here. I gave up with the sony discs after going through the whole pack and lightning said they were no good. The verbatim has been better as they have stopped the i/o errors, so its just the pixelating that is the problem now with some burns. I just need to identify what it is that is causing it, as its so frustrating!! I will be buying a new dvd player but not sure why the one i have is playing some perfect and other with pixelation.




    Not all dvd players will play all brands of discs, i know, youd expect themt o eb able to , but they cant. You now have to find a brand of disc ( and format of disc) that your PC,writer, and dvd players all like.

    The suggestion to you would be Taiyo yuden 8x TYG02 -R discs.usually only available online as opposed to normal stores/shops.

    Where in the world are you ? if your UK, then svp.co.uk is your best bet. they also do trial packs of a few differant makes of disc.
