Finalise Disc Failed! with +R/DL & PX-760A


Recommended Posts



I just got an error with a Dual-Layer burn. It was drive's 2nd Dual Layer disc so I've got no experience with that. Hope you can find something in the log.

The drive sits on the 2nd IDE-channel as master. I just found a firmware update to 1.07. Is it the media or the drive ?

okay, thanks for your reply...


there are two cruel things happening with this burn:


1. 2nd ide-channel, where the dvd-burner sits on, reports to drive in PIO mode, earlier Ultra-DMA-4 mode, other burns with dvd-r media are running at 0,7 KB/s

2. it can be reset to DMA by deinstalling the 2nd channel from windows only and reboot the system to let it recognize it again, otherwise it would be set to PIO forever


I need to get some of the Verbatim blanks to confirm.
