I got the Subject Problem in ImgBrn as detailed about 3/4 of the way through the following log. Original was decrypted by RipIt4Me with no error messages given and Encoded with DVDRB Pro with no error messages until the burn segment as far as I can tell.

What could be the cause(s) of this problem?

You got yourself a bad burn or read. That is a very old writer and chances are it's on its way out. You could try a firmware update but I doubt that's the issue. See here (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f86/overview-different-nec-firmwares-96140/).

Hi blutach,
Do writers when they get old sometimes create errors? I wasn't aware that might be the case. I thought all errors were software issues, not hardware, unless the writer had obvious physical problems.

Everything has a useful life Tom. If they made them to live forever, they'd never get you to buy something else! Do a Nero CD Speed test on your disk and preferably also with another drive - perhaps the burn is OK (although the first sign my LG had "had it" was when it was giving read errors on verifies). In any event, it's time for you to fork out $40 on a new drive.

I thought all errors were software issues, not hardware, unless the writer had obvious physical problems.

Personally I'd say the opposite is true.

The software only reports the errors that the drive returns.

If it says it can't read something then it can't read it - software can't do anything about that except to retry X times in the hope that it'll eventually work.

Of course it makes little sense to have a verify operation retry as that kinda defeats the purpose.

Hi,
I retried burning the same files with my other newer burner and it worked. So I guess the NEC is introducing the errors. Argh. I will remove it and smash it and stomp on it for it's failure. Then I will thank it for the service it provided while it worked, and provide it will a dignified disposal.

My internal Sony burner started reading and writing slower and slower and slower. I thought it was a software problem too, but after reading something here about burners eventually pooping out, I went out and bought a new LG external burner, brought it home plugged into a USB 2 slot and it works great. Right out of the box. So if you are thinking of getting a new burner and don't want to hassle taking your old one out and putting in a new one, try an external. Costs a little more but it is sooo convenient.
