  1. I 19:46:24 Destination Media Type: DVD+R (Disc ID: RITEK-F16-01) (Speeds: 2.4x, 4x, 6x, 8x) I 19:46:24 Destination Media Sectors: 2,295,104 I 19:46:24 Write Mode: DVD I 19:46:24 Write Type: DAO I 19:46:24 Write Speed: 12x you chose a write speed thats not supported by the firmware so it reverts back to the speed thats closest to 12x. Its been said over and over Verbatim andTtaiyo Yuden are the only way to go, their quality control is far superior to the Riteks ,Ricohs ,CMC etc .To level; the playing field and to give yourself a real chance of success every time you should buy Verbs or TY's .The last good media that Ritek produced was their GO4 -R media around 3 years ago ,The discs I burned still play fine and I even have half a spindle that burns perfect , other than those I use Verbs and TY only and its been a long while since I burned a coaster .To see whats going on get some Verbs and see if the problems go away
  2. Supermediastore... I've dealt with them in the past and they tried to play cute on some discs I ordered ,wasn't what I wanted and had a hard time getting an RMA from them . Never used them again New Egg and Meritline always give me great products and service
  3. no 16x is only achieved near the end of the read(Disc) if its reached at all .Its not a constant read speed from the beginning it gradually builds up to its max speed
  4. I 21:18:18 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: CMC MAG-D02-00) (Speeds: 2.4x, 4x, 6x, 8x) You're using crap (real crap ) media and until you change that who knows what errors you'll get ,Verbatim is the only way to go with Dual Layer and Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden discs in single layer.Change media first and see how it goes from there
  5. Hi , no Imgburn will not convert formats ,(PAL =Euro or NTSC US ) it can be done but its a pretty drawn out and lengthy process .If the ISO is NTSC ,US and you want to send it to Europe go ahead their players and TV's can handle both formats but the US doesn't handle PAL unless the hardware is specifically bought to play it
  6. theres no tab for Phillips drives with IB .Perhaps you can find something on Google
  7. try good media first Verbatim or Yudens
  8. Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden discs they are the best .CMC MAG we've seen so many problems with them I wish I had a penny for every time we did . Its not hard to flash the drive, download the firmware ,and there will be a flashing tool with the dl ,make sure theres no discs in the drive. With IB you can right click the drive in the destination box last line is firmware update just follow the prompts like its been said BYS3 was the latest I could find
  9. its a burner but only a CD burner . The following is from Google regarding the drive, notice TYPE, its a DVD ROM .The drives are called "combo drives " cd write /dvd read . A dvd burner comes up like this DVD±RW!. I'd say the info they gave you was misleading a dvd burner can burn both cd's and dvd's Product MPN MPN SHD162CBEWP Key Features Type DVD-ROM Enclosure Type Internal Read Speed 16x (DVD) • 48x (CD)
  10. it wont see the dvd drive in write mode because its not a DVD burner its a dvd rom (read only) and Write Mode only sees burners ,verify is a read function and IB will recognize it in verify mode . You cant actually burn a DVD with what you have .
  11. do you in fact have a combo drive that is a dvd -rom /cd burner if you can post a log from IB we can sort it out, looks like this I 22:20:25 ImgBurn Version Beta started! I 22:20:25 Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition (5.1, Build 2600 : Service Pack 2) I 22:20:25 Total Physical Memory: 1,046,604 KB - Available: 506,224 KB I 22:20:26 Initialising SPTI... I 22:20:26 Searching for SCSI / ATAPI devices... I 22:20:26 Found 1 DVD-ROM and 1 DVD±RW!
  12. New Egg are fantastic I've bought all my drives from them great prices and even better delivery :thumbup:
  13. yeah they do also Optirac ,they are drives that are built by NEC and Sony together,Most drives that I've seen like Verbs dont know why the PIO doesn't ,comes down to firmware I guess
  14. to update your comp right click on the drive in the destination box of IB.The last line will be firmware update ,make note of your firmware follow the prompts and see if theres newer,if there is download it and there will be a flashing tool with it .Make sure theres no disc in the drive when you do it. If you cant update that way then you will have to go to Comaq site to get the latest firmware same thing applies dl it open and use the flash tool
  15. post the regular log please the debug one is primarily for LUK and should be posted at his request, us mere mortals do better with the regular one .The power calibration error means that the drive cant set the power level for the laser to burn the media try cleaning the laser with a cleaning disc or maybe the media is crap ,you can use 10 kinds of media but they can be the same dye manufacturer .Verbatim and taiyo yuden are the only 2 we recommend
  16. try 1 Verbatim disc , we've seen every other dual layer disc there is here and Verbs are the only ones that work time after time
  17. TSST corp CD/DVDW SH - S182D FYI its a Samsung
  18. Verbs are the only discs that are really consistent in their quality when it comes to DL stuff .While you got 10 good ones then you get another batch of discs and 5 bad ones thats how it goes with iffy media. To set the write speed dont select max ,when you do the disc will start off writing slow and then as more info can be written to disc the speed increases to the max speed for the media in your case its 6x I 23:39:58 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: RICOHJPN-D01-67) (Speeds: 2,4x; 4x; 6x) I 23:39:58 Write Speed: MAX with IMGburn in the write mode you'll see a box "Settings " (lower right side of the main window) under that you'll see write speed, from the drop down menu you can select the speed and the disc will burn at that speed only.

    Google being my friend would never want me to do that
  20. you dont say what media you use for Dual Layer use VerbatimDL only we see verify problems when cheap media is used and cant be read back properly .Cheap media = Memorex and RitekDL's to name 2. Post a log of the burn, they are automatically stored ,go to Help --->Imgburn logs

    ah,erm what site was that again?
  23. maybe its not the drive but your media. Verbatim Dual Layer discs are the ONLY ones that work correctly .Try one and see if your problems go away ,also make sure you have up to date firmware for your drive
