  1. The last two burns I am receiving the following error:


    I 15:50:50 ImgBurn Version started!

    I 15:50:53 Destination Device: [0:1:0] TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203N SB02 (D:) (ATAPI)

    I 15:50:53 Destination Media Type: DVD+R (Disc ID: MCC-004-00) (Speeds: 4x, 6x, 8x, 12x, 16x, 18x, 20x)



    W 15:58:14 Potential 'WaitImmediateIO' Deferred Error - (99%, 0/3) - Program Memory Area Update Failure

    W 15:58:14 Finalise Disc Failed! - Reason: Program Memory Area Update Failure


    What does this mean? What can I do to correct it?


    It was working fine this morning; this is my third burn today, and it just started acting up. No new burner drive, no new firmware, no driver updates, everything is the same.

  2. dvd players are VERY forgiving , if you can burn and verify it should be good to go.

    i just don't trust discs that have high errors from the start, as some inferior discs degrade over (sometimes short) time



    yah, well I only use Verbatim or Sony discs when burning....and all the screenshots in this post, were all vertified after burn with Imgburn....well glad I can relax and enjoy burning! thanks for the help everyone!

  3. so ultimately isn't the disc having bad sectors and unreadable the deciding factor? I mean according to some of the numbers which are high on the PIF tests...the burn is crap, but when played back on a dvd player, or dvd-rom, the data is fully readable? Am I not getting something here? thanks

  4. the last scan is certainly acceptable. jitter can affect the quality result dramatically but the scan looks good



    thanks for all your help, one last question, what numbers are consider acceptable, and what is not consider acceptable?

  5. so what exactly do these graphs/numbers mean? I mean if I can read the data fine, how does this really effect the disc and the data on the disc? especially since I can read the same disc on the same drive and get different numbers each time, even though they are around the same....


    also, is C1 one good, and C2 bad?

  6. Ther only graph that looks "normal" is your last one and even that is outa spec (but at least its bad at the end).


    Do clean the drive and see what happens.





    the last image was taken after the drive was cleaned....


    would you say its time for a new drive?


    latest one:


  7. no, I haven't cleaned the drive, I will do that.


    so the log looks ok?


    I just burned a dvd at 8x, and these were the results: looks like it has done better burning at 8x rather than 4x....I always thought slower the burn, beter results....


    first image @ 8x


    second @ 16x



  8. 1. No. No-one has such a crystal ball. Some players are more forgiving than others anyway.

    2. Not sure just on a single burn. Check out some other ones that you do.


    Your blanks should be OK. Usually, you see poor stats on the outside (end) of the disk. Do some more tests, perhaps also in a different burner. Maybe burn at slower speed as a test (8x). Is there a log????





    log of the burn?

  9. so with the disc being out of spec, does this imply that 1) the disc may/may not play correctly in a future date? 2) does this mean my burner is bad and doesn't burn good anymore?



    or really if the disc, does not meet the spec, how does this affect me? short/long term?



    thanks for your help.

  10. The disk is certainly out of ECMA spec. I'd re-burn.


    Anything happen to the data flow while you were burning? Is there a log?





    there were no errors durig the burn, and the disc plays fine though? so how can the disc be out of ECMA specs, when it plays fine?
