Burning Dual Layer Dvds With Toast

Question

Hi everyone.

 

I attempted to burn a dual layer dvd (Verbatim DVD+R DL, 8X) on my (PowerPC) Mac G4, 10.4.11, Toast 9.0.7. I'm not in front of my home computer right now, but I think the drive is a Pioneer DVR-109 with DL layer burn capabilities (flashed on a PC and then installed in the Mac). Firmware is up to date. I turned buffer under-run protection off and burned at 2.4X speed (on an 8X disc). The burn failed. I got the following error right off the bat:

 

Sense Key Illegal Request

Sense Code 0x26

Invalid Field in Parameter List

 

I attempted to burn another dual layer dvd on my (Intel) MacBook Pro 2.53 GHz dual duo-core, running 10.6.4 with the stock superdrive. Toast 10.0.3. Same settings (buffer under-run off, 2.4X speed, 8X disc). Same error.

Both times I was burning as Disc Copy of a dmg file.

When I attempted to burn the files on both my G4 and MacBookPro through the Finder/Disk Utility, both burns were successful.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Why did you turn buffer under-run off. My understanding is that it is intended to help avoid the very thing you are experiencing.

Initially, I had it on, but when the burn failed, I did some research, and quite a few suggestions were to turn buffer under-run off. Seeing as the stop-start of the process would/could potentially cause the failing. As the burn was set at 2.4x (on an 8x capable disc) I figured it wouldn't be a problem.

As I said, the burn(s) worked fine through the Finder/Disk Utility, so it's definitely a Toast problem.

Any solution to this failure? I purchased Toast 10 Pro last week and have yet to burn a DVD or DVD-DL. I can burn from other tools, but not Toast.

 

Saving to an iso or toast file and using the mac's Disk Utility works fine. A good work around.

 

FYI: I am using a MacBook Pro 2010 with a 2.66GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, RAM drive, OS X 10.6.6, ...

I spent an hour working with tech support and no solution was found. The installation was downgraded from Toast 10 Pro to Toast 10 and only then did burning DVDs work. I uninstalled Toast 10, rebooted, re-installed Toast 10 Pro and burning DVDs works. So no technical flaw found, but a satisfactory resolution.

Upgraded to Toast 11 Pro and burnt one dual-layer DVD. The next day I installed a recommended Toast 11 Pro upgrade and then proceeded to burn a dual-layer DVD. This time it the failure message read "Result Code = -50". Tried again, then a reboot and another try. Same failure each time. Reinstalled the original Toast 11 Pro. Proceeded to burn a dual-layer DVD and it worked just fine.

It appears that each install/upgrade either breaks or fixes the problem. Roll the dice and get a new result :(
