Question

Hi folks,

 

I just changed my DVD burner and I am wondering how to make/force EMC9 to see my new burner with the new spcifications. Would anyone know how? I did a search but did not find anything that relate to my situation. I'm certain someone else went through that in the past, so I am hoping to get some indications.

 

Thanks a lot folks!!

Nothing is needed, as long as Windows picks it up, EMC should as well. Are you having problems getting EMC to work with it? Maybe the pxengine patch will help.

Thanks ggrussell. Indeed, once I inserted a disk, the app. would provide me with additional burning speed option. I usually burn at half the speed just to be on the safe side.

 

I did a full uninstall and clean install again, as I did in the past. I am now able to correctly burn single layer DVDs. But as for double layer disks, I am still generating expensive coasters. Just a few minutes ago, I tried to burn with a Memorex DL DVD+R DL... Coaster. I tried with a Verbatin DVD+R DL... another coaster. This is getting old. :(

 

I am getting at the end of my rope with DL disks burning.

Thanks everyone for the replies.

 

So, here is what I did:

 

Uninstalled the previous DVD burner in the hardware manager and shut down the system.

Removed the old, installed the new DVD burner (LG DVD-RAM GSA-H50N) and booted up.

BIOS saw the drive correctly. Rebooted to windoze. ;)

Hardware manager saw the drive correctly, so did it appear in My Computer.

Launched EMC9. Open Tools/Options/Advanced: It only gives a speed choice of 1X. :(

Went into Tools/Disk Information (Left pane): It gives the correct drive info.

I downloaded and installed the patch that was suggested by Beerman and rebooted the system.

 

Still no changes. So I am wondering if I will have to do a clean install again? :blink: Anything else I should try? If anyone has other suggestions, I will gladly try them out.

 

Thanks in advance!

Tell us every detail about burning the DL disc.

 

C, Documents and Settings, your user or all user, Application Data, Roxio, Dragon, 3.x, Device Detection Log & Write logs.

 

The write log will show your burns, successful and failure, post one for the DL failure. The Device Detection Log will show media placed in the burner and read by the firmware back to the software. Post the top part drive, firmware, and detection of the DL disc that failed.

 

Copy and paste a log file for the DL media. A new session starts over with the word (Roxio).

From a link, that was provided on this board, Memorex is not necessarally the best media, but the Varbatim media are in the "First Class" category.

 

As for the firmware, it is revision 1.0 for the GSA H50N. This is a new model and last time I verified, LG had no firmware updates yet for that DVD burner.

 

The drive is set for DMA access, like all my other drives. I have some details in the DrWatson error log files, but that thing is HUGE. I will be digging into it and try to make sense of it all.

 

Before any burn session, I clean all the "temp" directories, perform a "disk cleanup", "disk defrag" and run Registry Mechanic, to ensure nothing is left to chance.

 

Except for doing a full OS and application re-install, or getting a new PC, I am running out of options.

 

Thanks for "listening" to my venting off....

 

EDIT: Spelling correction.

Hi CD! Here is the information below. I have seperated the 2 sections. There is a LOT of details, so I copied only part of the 2 files requested. Thanks in advance!! :)

Mmmm... OK... Tried that last night with "some" success. While running the "Do More" option, I could the test read going up close to 16X. When I checked back in the Initial Open Tools/Options/Advance, I now have a choice up to 8X for the DVD. Woopie! ;) So, it looks like "maybe" EMC9 now correctly sees the DVD drive. I will have to test it with an actual burn session and see if I can produce good burns or more ocaters. ;)

 

The Specs are the following:

Thanks for all you assistance!
