Why Do It If You Can RipIt4Me?

Unhappy-2 Failed to Write Sectors - Write Protected

So my burner successfully rips all the files from a real, legit DVD onto my hard drive just fine. I know everything's fine because PowerDVD can play them with the "DVD on HDD" option. I send it through DVD Shrink, using that to encode and create an .iso file and burn with ImgBurn. When I get to the portion of ImgBurn where it has to actually write the .iso to my blank DVD, it fails, saying it's write protected, which doesn't make sense because I thought the whole idea of these programs was to remove said protection. I've been burning DVDs just fine on this machine for over a year, never one problem. I went to college and left it here with my siblings in August, and I don't know if maybe they did something. Anyway, here's the log from ImgBurn.

It doesn't look like the drive really supports those discs.

Try some decent Verbatim (MCC dye) or Taiyo Yuden ones instead.

Thanks for the reponses!!

@ LIGHTNING UK! -- I've always used the Imation DVD-R discs. That machine never had a problem with that type of disc until now. I doubt the disc is the problem (also I used another computer with those discs and it always works very well).

@ Chewy -- Thanks for the input... but what do I do with it? I don't really understand what you mean.

I would have agreed with you until I purchased my last batch, 8-X.
I had to update my firmware to get them to burn correctly. I am not sure if this could be the problem, but I did note that it is burning @ 2-X. This was that I saw, normal 4-X burns on 4-X imation, then 2-X burns on new 8-X imation disk.

Imation, Memorex, whatever, means just who the buyer was for a batch of media. Your burner does not look at the top of the disk or the writting on the spindle when it tries to burn it, it looks for a mid code, then the firmware either has a write strategy for that mid code or it doesn't.

In this case the mid code was
Quote:
Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: OPTODISCR016) (Speeds: 2x)
a lesser well know 16x media

when you go here
http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia.ph...+or+List+Media
and search for imation and dvd-r and 16x you see there are different results

Understand?


and the firmware used a generic write strategy that wouldn't work, end of story, fat lady sang, etc.

I really think this has nothing to do with the disc. I'm on another machine now, a PC. I put the same DVD media in, and here's the report ImgBurn spewed on it.
-------------------------------------------
DVDRW IDE 16X A091 (ATA)
Current Profile: DVD-R

Disc Information:
Status: Empty
Erasable: No
Free Sectors: 2,298,496
Free Space: 4,707,319,808 bytes
Free Time: 510:48:46 (MM:SS:FF)
Supported Write Speeds: 4x, 8x, 12x, 16x

Pre-recorded Information:
Manufacturer ID: OPTODISCR016

Physical Format Information (Last Recorded):
Book Type: DVD-R
Part Version: 5
Disc Size: 120mm
Maximum Read Rate: Not Specified
Number of Layers: 1
Track Path: Parallel Track Path (PTP)

Track Density: 0.74 um/track
First Physical Sector of Data Area: 196,608
Last Physical Sector of Data Area: 0
Last Physical Sector in Layer 0: 0
-----------------------------------------------------

It reports correctly and shows the speeds the disc really supports. So, does anyone know what happened to the DVD-R drive on my other computer, the laptop? Or, better, what I can do to remedy it?

I think Chewy gave you the answer. Your drive does not like the disk. I understand your thought on it not being the disk, but it is a combo of the disk and your 1st drive. If you review the link Chewy gave it shows that your drive does not know how to support those disk. Maybe you should try to buy some better disk for that drive. Review list, looks like you may have better luck if you can find 4X disk.

It just seems so so strange to me that this type of disc would suddenly stop working after such a long time of flawless performance. Is there any reason why this would happen? I will try other media and see what happens, but I sorely doubt it will help.

I don't have any of those logs saved, but the above is the accurate information for the discs that it used to provide.

is that from an older burn?

did you stick in an old disk into the drive and copy that from the imgburn window

remember imation used 3 other kinds of blanks and labeled them the same as yours

Perhaps you should check the condition of your written Imations. I tried some a long time ago, burned ok but after a month they wouldn`t play, not even in the drive that burned them.

Sorry I took so long to reply, been very busy. I popped an older disc into my laptop and ImgBurn reported it as OPTODISCR008 and supported speeds of 2x, 4x. The info I gave is the report my working, no-issue computer reports the disc as having, meaning the discs are just fine and my burner on the laptop is messed, right? Oh, and all movies I burned ages ago with the laptop still work just as excellent as always. Again, thanks for all this advice everyone.

the mystery is solved, the disks changed from OPTODISCR008, which worked, to OPTODISCR016, which don't work
