Burning Dual Layer Dvd


Derron

Question

The drive reported an error:

Sense Key = HARDWARE ERROR

Sense Code = 0x44, 0x90

INTERNAL TARGET FAILURE

 

This is the error I receive about 14% of the way in during the Writing Lead-Out. Toast 9.02 then just freezes up. I am using a MAC Book Pro. I am using a Memorex DVD+R DL

I apologize if this has been posted previous but would appreciate any help that is provided. I have wasted a couple of discs trying to back up some movies that I own. I am using Tiger and the internal drive. I can burn regular DVD no problem the dual layer receives this error. I have burned a data dual layer dvd. I have the video I want saved as a video_ts file and that is what i am choosing when using toast.

I am not sure how to update the firmware on your machine, but the firmware updates that the manufacturers issue periodically are normally intended to improve media compatibility. With my 5 1/2 inch optical drives I just drop them in a USB case and either hook them up to a PC to update the firmware or run the update via Windows in Virtual PC (I am still in a G4 world).

 

I can only add my vote for the Verbatim DL media. I have also found DL Verbatim at Sam's Club which normally carries the single layer as well. (The price of it is finally coming down!) When I was still using Memorex media I had so many failures that I soon got the idea to use something else.

 

I have had some "failed" verifications even with Verbatim single layer media with Toast 9 when burning eyetv files as a DVD. I have successfully played a number of these with (Apple) DVD player and I am not certain whether these "failures" are real or not. Fortunately, I have not really encountered this with the Verbatim DL media.

 

As I understand it, the verification only takes place when burning a file from a disc image. I only do this when there is a file that is slightly larger than 4.38 GB and I want to fit it on a single layer DVD disc. The way that I am able to use the compression feature in Toast is to burn a disc image (.toast file) and then open it in Toast and use the compression feature. The verification does not take place when multiplexing/burning the file directly to the disc. Thus, it is possible that the occasional error, real or imagined, exists there, but is not tested for. In any event, I ordinarily burn another that will "pass".

I tried burning an Infiniti 360 DVD+R dual-layer disc with Toast 9.0.2, OSX Leopard, and I tried both my external Freecom burner and my new iMac's internal burner, and, each time, the disc burns fully and then I get a -50 error blaming the operating system and the disc is useless. I wasted 9 discs this way, regardless of burn speed, until, as a last resort I tried burning the disc at 8x using Toast 7.1.2 and I got a perfect burn with full verification, and the disc plays fine on both the iMac and the standalone Panasonic DVD Player.

 

So how come Toast 9.0.2 fails when Toast 7.1.2 triumphs?!

Memorex DL media causes problems with many drives. Most if not all drive manufacturers state that their drives do support Verbatim DVD+R DL media and some list support for some other brands. I doubt if any claim their drives support burning to Memorex media reliably. The error message you're receiving is common with that brand. You could try burning at a slowest available speed (set by clicking the Best button in the Recorder settings window after the blank disc is inserted and recognized).

Could there be any other problem, like I said I have burned a data dl. Which brand of DVD would you recommend or have had good luck with? Sorry I am not sure what type of drive is in my Mac Book Pro, I think it is a HL-DT-ST DVD RW GSA-S10N interconnect ATAPI. I am willing to spend to find what works the best or how do I find the recommended DVD DL for this drive if I have it named correctly. I really appreciate the time and effort for your generous help!

When DL media first arrived there was only one that worked which is Verbatim DVD+R DL. That's the only one I've used and it hasn't been a problem for me. If you want to read user comments on your Memorex media insert a disc and choose Disc Info from Toast's Recorder menu. You'll see a button that links to a site where users post comments about discs with that specific manufacturing code.

 

Where I live I can get Verbatim DVD+R DL media at either OfficeMax or Walmart.

Much appreciated, again thanks for your time and effort. I will give a Verbatim disc a try and let you know. Thanks again.

I have burned a image DVD DL with the memorex, why is this different than a video_ts file? Just looking for an explanation to try and understand this stuff better. Seems like when I am burning the video_ts file is the only time I am getting this error. I used mac the ripper to load my DVD on to the computer, converted to a video_ts file and then try and make a copy and the error shows up. Could there be another issue? Is mac the ripper not creating the file correctly? Or is Toast having trouble with this type of file burning? Don't mena to be a pain, just trying to understand better.
