  1. I would order a pioneer, make sure my power supply and cables were up to snuff before I wasted any more of those expensive blanks http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/NEC-ND-3500A/ people have had mixed results with the modding of a 3450 to a 3500
  2. that drive doesn't even support bitsetting dl dvd+r's pretty good drive for dvd-r's tho
  3. welcome to the forum under help, imgburn logs copy and paste that dual layer log into a reply
  4. do a simple test, start 2 instances of imgburn burning from the same iso on the same hard drive, burn at 8X, now look how long it takes use the que function and repeat the same 2 burns, compare times if you want to burn 2 disks at once with nero or imgburn from the same iso, you'd be better off with raid striped drives that can sort of keep up with having to read the same file twice off of the same partition/drive 8x might only be 11MB/s but seek rates kill the transfer
  5. http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb%3Ben...p;x=12&y=13 when all else fails, hit the registry
  6. are those blanks made in china or hong kong? the made in tawain are better, not good either tho
  7. highlight one of the optical drives and then use the clipboard button and paste into a reply window I am betting sonic is still there and corrupt as heck, next bet is a small chance that clone is interfering also http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-matrix.pl?upd_id=1717 sony has newer bios for these models with that motherboard
  8. I must build up my nerve to reinstall a program that made me do a system restore twice now. use another program to look at the filter load http://forum.digital-digest.com/showpost.p...mp;postcount=20
  9. oem board in a sony vaio? model/brand bios is old? sonic still on the system?
  10. motherboard? are any of these other programs running some service at bootup?
  11. hello CC, what are the 2 drives? the controller chipset? and how are they jumpered and positioned on the pata? cable? not another jmicron thread I hope?
  12. welcome to the forum it's just a matter of how good the 2.4x verb DL is and how burners have improved, that overspeeding is enabled with firmware It's probably safer to limit burn speeds to 4x tho. You could always test 6x or 8x. The 2.4x burn speed probably won't give you any better burns than the 4x. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=223008 you couldn't just buy the pioneer model and cut out the middleman?
  13. Ouch, that firmware is pretty old, but then so is the drive I'd give the drive a good cleaning and flash over to the latest 3500 firmware http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/NEC-ND-3500A/
  14. try the disk in another computer, your drive can't even read the file system on it?
  15. how in the heck can a dvd standalone player play a game disk??? you are not making much sense game disks are data disks not video disks getting the basics down would help
  16. it's not imgburn, it's a combination of bad disks and an older burner by the way that's a premium single layer burner that was rebranded(benq 1640) and then marked up by plextor your firmware is about 6 months older than the latest benq 1640 firmware you could try the crossflash but it's rather complicated and confusing http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=155281 http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=171380 many of the links are dead but the important ones work there's no pressing reason to use dual layer for a data burn anyway, unless your trying to burn a 5 gig iso
  17. I downloaded and read the manual, total waste of time, so many mistakes! Make sure the serial 2 controller is not in raid. Connect the hard drives to the top sata connectors(intel chipset) what's the driver date on the jmicron controller?
  18. you probably won't like this thread http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtop...&hl=jmicron
  19. drive jumpered master at end of a good 80 conductor cable? have you double checked any bios settings that might come into play? test a good single layer burn
  20. one issue with that drive might be it's ability to read dual layer at 12x, setting a lower read speed might be helpful in reading the data back whether it would obey that command is another matter anybody good with japanese? http://plextor.jp/download/internal.php
  21. that's pio mode, one way or the other
  22. I was just confirming what everyone else had already said, your firmware doesn't support the 8X blanks
  23. it's the pata drive(112D), update the driver for the jmicron chipset that controls the single ide and a burn log might give a clue or two
  24. not good, especially knowing ECS like I do http://www.jmicron.com/Driver.htm check your version against this
