Default Imgburn success rate < 50% = lots of coasters

I'm a lurker that's run into a snag & couldn't find this issue addressed & resolved. If it has been, then a link would be appreciated.

I'm running Win ME, I have a LITEON SOHW-1673S. Firmware = JSOD.

The process I run is DVDdecrypt, DVDShrink & then Imgburn. At the moment I'm making more coasters from failed burns than I am burned DVDs. Some times I get the bluescreen with a "Windows protection error" or sometimes the Buffer drops to zero & it just stays stopped.

I always close all programs & only run Imgburn...no screensaver, surfing, music, no nothing.

Can anyone help a newbie out here?

Thanks in advance

And the killer of all questions what type of media are you using and what is it's MID (manufacturer identification) If you don't know run nero Cd-dvd speed or DVD identifier and find out.

Well I was trying 8X...I'm gonna try to tone it down to 6X & see if that will help. Any suggestions on settings that may have an effect?

Thanks

I think the real issue here is to use good media and slow down the speed.

I have not had a single coaster as of yet with IMGburn.

I have had a few with nero though.

I have a LITEON SOHW-1673S with the same firmware JSOD as you and mine doesnt like the RO5's either. Stopped using 'em and have burns with a quality rating of high 90% now that I use only Tayio Yudens. Try the TY's and you should get very good results with that drive, I do.

Went from Sony D11 to TY02. I never had any real problems with the Sonys but after reading about TYs I decided to switch. Never looked back.
Media quality is very important.

Ok. I've found a way that helps & I hope that anyone who has the problem can benefit from this. After I get the image, I shut down, kill power & power back up. Then, I I select 2X speed...weird, b/c it still burns the disk at 6X. I've had less failures this way. Hope this helps anyone with these media.

In general, bad media shouldn't cause blue screens!

HOWEVER.....there is one little memory corruption problem in 1.3.0.0 (it's fixed for next release) but it only shows its ugly head if it gets to the end of the burn and you get a "Potential 'WaitImmediateIO' deferred error" message - only of course you'll never see that because it'll crash before it does.
A newer OS (i.e. XP) doesn't actually die but as ME is a pile of ...., it does.

As you're using questionable media, it's quite likely you ARE getting that error at the end of the burn and so then the memory corruption thing is kicking in. That's why you get the windows protection error.

When the drive just stops burning, again, that's down to the media.

So buy better media and then you'll have fixed both problems

Sorry, I'm done supporting M$ with their OS's. Win ME is where my buck stops with them, for good. I run gentoo, & usually for programs that I'm new to I run them in Win ME to get really aquainted before I use them with WINE.

There are to different situations when it dies. One is when the screen locks up. If I could print a screenie of it, I would. But it never makes it halfway thru the burn. The other is the blue screen, which never makes it halfway either. I've watch enough coasters created to confirm that it's nowhere near the end when this happens.

I hope this helps you as the developer. I wouldn't worry too much about it, lots of people run XP. Could be a pre-XP problem. However, the above method that I use, has gotten my to almost 90% on burns.
