Another I/O Error!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, trying to burn a PS2 ISO but having absolutely no joy. I've looked through as many other forum posts of the topic as I could find and attempt their solutions.

I've tried lowering the write speed to 4x (the DVD-R is 16x) and tried to find updates for my drive, everything seems okay I think.

I've attached the Log below, maybe someone more well versed in the topic could spot something?

I'm using Philips DVD-R 16x, my next step is to order another brand of disc I guess.

Thanks

Here is your most likely culprit:

I 17:30:32 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: CMC MAG. AM3)

 

CMC Magentics makes the worst optical discs out there.  (They also ironically own the 2 companies that make the best.)  Over half of the problems we see on this board are caused by CMC media.  And they usually (But not always.) disappear when people switch to good quality media.

 

Try getting some Verbatim DataLife Plus/AZO discs.  NOT the Life Series you find in stores, as those are CMC.  Verbatim farms out to the best, MCC (Mitsubishi), and also the worst (CMC).  CMC also, of course, OWNS Verbatim!  :rolleyes:  You can generally only find DataLife Plus/AZO discs online.

 

I'd first try dumping the CMC discs and getting some higher quality media.

I'm in the US, and it's not always universal that one kind of disc made here is the same as elsewhere.  For instance, Ritek here is a decent brand, but in Europe, it seems Ritek is lousy.  So, I can't say without seeing the MID as displayed in ImgBurn.  On the surface and especially since it says AZO, they're probably the MCC and not the CMC stuff.

 

BTW, those are DVD+R and the link as posted says they're DVD-R.  So, I don't know which you wanted.

Sooooo I tried again when the new set of Discs arrived today.

Is it possible I got another bad DVD-R ? Or is it time to start blaming the burner drive itself?

It's highly unlikely you got a bad batch of discs.  That generally doesn't happen, though it can, of course.  You're using TY media, which is a higher grade, so it's probably not a cheap media issue.  It's probably a firmware incompatibility.  Check for a firmware update, apply it if there is one, and try again.  If there isn't one, the problem is either a bad burner or it doesn't like those kinds of discs.  The latter of which seems unlikely as you've gotten failures on both good and bad media from different manufacturers.

 

TSST drives have been known to be problematic on this forum before.  Another thing to consider is that model is a slim drive and slim drives have been known to be particularly bad, especially when compared to half height models.

 

You've already tried CMC and TY.  If you wanted to completely say it's the drive's fault, you could try the Verbatim DataLife Plus I mentioned.  If those MCC discs fail as well, you can almost definitely say it's the drive that's the problem.  However, I wouldn't recommend doing that as you're probably just going to spend money to verify what is most likely the problem.

Like dbminter basically said, your 'laptop burner' is most likely the problem. I would strongly suggest using a proper desktop burner instead which will likely work without issue on those TYG03 media.

hell, I suspect even the lower quality media you had issues with will probably work on a decent desktop burner. because, just speaking for myself... I don't think I ever had a write problem like that on regular/non-RW media (short of a very limited amount of discs that had heavy scratches at which point it was the scratched that were the problem).

Thanks very much for your reply. 

I just checked again to see if there is a firmware update available, but ImgBurn only directs me to Samsung models. Unless I'm mistaken and i should try one of those?

I also tried to see if Windows had any Driver updates but it's all okay there. 

I might just try purchase an external burner and see if I have any luck there.

Yeah, a proper desktop type of external burner should be okay.

hell, I got one of those 'SATA/IDE to USB3' adapters for hard drives that I have occasionally used on my desktop IDE/SATA burners (I tried it mainly on a ancient HP (IDE) burner (May 2000 mfg date) and ImgBurn works okay with it) and it works fine. although I suspect your probably better off just buying a external desktop sized burner since it will be more convenient (and probably less $) than buying a decent quality desktop DVD burner and connecting it to that adapter and then from that adapter to the PC's USB port.

I actually have one of those adaptors for the same reason! 😅

I'll probably be safer with a all in one external burner/drive I guess though.

Thanks very much for all the help everybody! Greatly appreciated!

Hell, if that's the case and you know it works... you might be better off buying a decent DVD burner that normally goes into a desktop computer since at least this way you can buy whatever brand you want.

but it's your call ;)

In TSST, the TS is short for Toshiba Samsung.  So, you could probably find a Samsung firmware update, but you'd have to get one where the ID string matches the numbers of your drive as listed in the log.  And if you do download the wrong firmware, it won't update your drive because firmware packages check for a drive that they can properly update.  If none is found, no update proceeds.

 

I've also tested those external P/SATA to USB bridges for HDD's on optical drives and they do work.  I was curious to see if they worked and they do.

 

You may run into a problem buying external burners, though.  Depending on the USB bridge in the enclosure and the USB controller on your motherboard, you may get a Semaphore Time Out error.  If that's the case, there's little you can do beyond replacing the USB bridge in the enclosure or the USB controller on your mobo.  And, it's simply easier to get a different model external burner.  Cheaper, too.

What I do is buy a half height burner and put it in a USB 3 enclosure.  Half heights are generally better and you can control what you're going to get.
