Recommended Posts

i cannot burn minus dvd's but have no problem with plus dvd's or dual layer or cdr, i can read from minus dvd's but when i burn to a minus dvd it locks up at 2% everytime, i have tried all kinds of media which perfect on the same drives with xp, but not on my laptop with vista.

any ideas apart from the obvious and just use plus dvd's?

here is a log from imageburn. BTW i have also tried disc at once with exact same results.

Writing at "MAX" across a USB port is fraught with danger. Really, you should try to pop your burner on an internal IDE channel, or find some high quality media that burns at 1 or 2X max.

same if i use internal writer but still doesnt explain why i can burn dual layer and +dvd media at full 12x speed with ease.

its only dvd minus media even with verbs.

Cannot say 100% but you might have better luck if you can find an enclosure that has the prolific PL-2507 (2506) chipset in it, Like the sumvision USB2 only enclosures as my Pioneers do not give that error using that chipset, however the PL-3507 which is usb2/1394 chip and which should be better hates all my pioneer drives.
