Write error question

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to help my cousin with some CDR write issues. This is not an IMGBURN problem per se.

 

I think this error is either due to the media he is using (which from what I have figured out he has had lying around for several years), or his CDR burner may be dying, or he may be writing too fast for his media.

 

Curious what you guys think....thanks!

Are you using v2.5.0.0 there?

 

Newer 1.07 firmware - http://www.firmwarehq.com/Plextor/PX-W4012A/files.html

 

You could try 16x or 24x for the write speed but I'm not sure if it'll do any good.

 

Cleaning the drive and using some Taiyo Yuden CD's are also ideas you could try out.

 

 

Thanks very much!

 

I will try upgrading his firmware. Didn't realize it wasn't the latest.

 

Also he is not at 2.5 yet, think he was still at 2.4.4, will have to upgrade that for him too.

 

 

I installed the drive for him a couple months ago and gave him both EAC and IMGBURN at that time, and it tested out fine on media that I brought with me. I'm really thinking that the media he is using is just bad (seems like over 50% of the time it bombs out).
