First ever DL burn failed...why?


Recommended Posts



I've used ImgBurn without ever having a coaster for well over 100 burns on DVD +R media. I always use Verbatim (MCC 003/004). So I bought a few Verbatim DL discs today (MKM 003) thinking I would be fine with them. But the burn failed almost from the start :(


Fastest 6 euro I ever lost (except for the casino :D ). Anyway I've saved a log maybe anyone here can tell me what exactly went wrong so I don't waste anymore DL discs.


Note: I've burned a normal DVD +R after the failed DL burn and that one went fine as usual.

Your burner's firmware is quite old, so you should update it to the latest version B7W9.


W 22:27:46 Failed to Write Sectors 0 - 31 - Kan de opdracht niet uitvoeren door een fout in een I/O-apparaat.

Could you translate this message, please? I've tried a Dutch to English online translator and it came out as "The task doesnot can carry out by wrong in I/O apparatus". Could that be a "The parameter is incorrect" I/O error?

Regarding firmware, I might have found an answer here:




So this disc is not supported even by the latest firmware :(


The literal Dutch to English translation would be something like "cannot execute command due to I/O error". So I guess the drive did not recognize the disc properly and failed when trying to burn it.


I guess I need the older MKM 001 version...or buy a new drive.
