Sense Code

Question

I am an iMac G4 user )SX 10.4.9 Tiger, and when erasing a DVD-RW both fast erase and full erase, I am now getting the messages:-

 

1. SENSE KEY = MEDIUM ERROR

SENSE CODW = 0x57

Unable to recover table of contents

 

2. Couldn't determine free space on disc

 

3. Error reading disc capacity

 

I have had these messages on both Maxell and Sony DVD-RW discs? I can happily burn other DVD-R,

and any CD-R disc. The internal Burner is a SONY DVD RW DW-U10A if that helps.

 

 

I also have an Iomega external drive and it too gives the same codes. May well be damaged media, but if anyone has any clues I would be grateful.

Sounds like your drive just does not like that media. If you find a brand of media that works with your drive, stick with it.

 

 

 

Thanks John,

I have been using Samsung DVD-R X8 and burning at X2 speed, I may stick to them now and maybe try the -RW version. Thanks anyway.
