Lots of errors in new DVD disk pack...

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Komrade Klark, Jul 11, 2006.

  1. Hi, if anyone is able to help me determine from the following log,
    whether this is a hardware error, or a disk error it would be much
    appreciated. I'm getting lots of errors in the new disk pack I've just
    opened (the last pack has been just fine - same type but unknown if from
    the same batch). I can't say all the errors have been similar as this is
    the first log I've captured. Thanks in advance...

    According to http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm
    Princo media is 3rd grade so will be variable. I find the same for my
    present batch of Imation DVD+R 8x discs made by CMC - some are very
    good but some fail.

    I used to use Princo quite a lot, but found that to avoid lots of burn
    errors I had to burn them at 2x instead of 4x.

    I tried a spindle of 8x CMC once and had heaps of coasters. Had to burn
    at 4x to get a decent success rate.

    These days I use Verbatim. They're really good, fast (16x), and
    relatively cheap (< $1ea).

    I always burn them at 4x. When I had a some spindles of Excel 8x
    DVD+R (OptodiscOR8 guaranteed A grade) I burned them at 6x and got
    better results.

    Here in Hamilton all the shops are full of Imation. Looking for
    alternative brands, I've found a few places selling TDK, but it appears
    only K-Mart has them in spindles of 25.

    Thanks for that, I've emailed them. :) The 50 spindle of Mitsi DVD+Rs look
    like they'll suit me.

    Thankyou everyone that has posted, the advice and the links - I imagine
    there could be a few more posts, so future posters, I will also thank
    you in advance (was a late post and not quite 24hrs). Based on the posts
    nobody has said anything about it looking like it's being a hardware
    issue, so it's looking like it could the disk pack that's bad. Either
    that or there's a hardware issue and it just so happens to have started
    just when I began the new 50 pack spindle.

    Can anyone actually see anything in the log that confirms either way -
    i.e. definitely hardware, definitely not hardware, or it's
    indeterminable? And if possible are you able to quote the bit that you
    are referring to? I have had the supplier replace it with an identical
    pack so we shall see. In future I will be purchasing higher grade disks.
    If I continue to get errors in the next pack I can only assume hardware
    problems, as this pack should very definitely be from a different batch
    (the bad pack was purchased some months ago). I will keep this thread
    updated on the outcome soon.

    Not that it's relevant too much, but I prefer DVD -R because I tend to
    do a bit of video work, and the DVD's I produce seem to work better for
    the older DVD set top players.

    snip.....

    I used to use Princo because they were cheap. I also used a LiteOn
    DVD-RW drive and others. I got lots of coasters no matter what speed I
    burnt at or which version of firmware I used.

    ==============================
    I now burn at 50% of the rated speed.
    I now use only Verbatim or Imation or Spin-X (Warehouse)
    (in order of preference.)
    I now only use a Pioneer DVR110 burner
    ===============================

    Now I don't get *any* coasters

    Australian PC Users Magazine recently ran a few articles on DVD-R(W)
    quality. Verbatim came out way ahead of the others. Yeah, Ok, they
    *could have been payed to say that, but they did give all the results in
    the mag.

    Verbatim are not commonly available. I use PB Tech, they have spindles
    at reasonable cost.

    Thanks. When I get errors I try stepping down to 2x. These PRINCO's are
    1x - 4x but I think Nero only allows 2x and 4xburn.

    I believe you, but the pack says "A GRADE".

    Hmmm, thanks Lawrence.

    What are people's opinion of the best printable disc? TDK, Mitsubishi,
    Kodak? What's top of the line? I personally don't mind paying a bit more
    for the best.

    Anyone care to comment on their lifetime? e.g. Gold as opposed to Blue
    layer etc?

    Actually I haven't, but I hadn't thought of it either. No real problems
    to date though. Is this risky to do? Can you suggest as to how I might
    go about updating it? I'm not lazy... prepared to do the research, but
    always happy to have a head start if you don't mind helping me out. It's
    an LG. "HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4082B" according to Device Manager.

    Thanks Sticky. Appreciate that. I have heard Verbatim are excellent, so
    PC Mag is probably correct anyway.

    I was still getting errors last night even at 2x. See my later post.
    Reboot done (dunno if a reboot will matter but could do with MS... who
    knows), will try more from a new fresh pack tonight. Update you later.

  19. MMM, ok, now I'm really worried.

    In event viewer...

    EventID: 51
    An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\D during a paging
    operation.

    This link reveals a guy says it relates to a possible imminent hard disk
    failure, then posts later saying it did die.

    Any comments to support this?

    It is a problem when buying some discs as you don't know who made
    them. My Imations are made in Taiwan by CMC. There is no indication
    on the packaging about who makes them and Imation use four different
    manufacturers. But you can tell the Imation CMC discs as the tubs
    have a high lip and are made in Taiwan.
