Question about Sony DW-G120A DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

2 Answers

Can not copy large dual layer data file written with NERO 6

I have a large ISO file, and saved it on a dual layer disc with NERO.
Veryfy was o.k. Now while trying to copy the ISO file to HD I get
an error message (CRC) about halfway through - probably at the
layer break. Any idea what to do?

If you are saving to an external (usb) drive, the drive may be formatted FAT (which is the default file system from the drive manufacturers).

FAT is not capable of accomodating a single file of greater than 4 GB.

If your iso file is >4 GB, you will not be able to save it to a FAT hard drive, regardless of the drive's capacity or available free space.

According to other sources (in Afterdawn) the problem lies with the media. Memorex
(Ritek) have apparently dumped a lot of cheap quality media into the market which
do not have a smooth layer transfer. Apart from that, I also noticed several badly
recorded discs (compared to some Mitsubishi discs I had earlier). Apparently these
are meant for the cheap Asian copy market (Ritek statement - search Internet
reviews). I now have to save up enough in order to buy those expensive Verbatim
discs (or use DVDShrink).

Personally, I feel that the disc manufacturers should get together with companies
like Nero and manufacturers of burners to solve such problems before dumping it onto
the consumers. This is irresponsible marketing (very common today).

How to install I/O Magic DVD without CD?


If you have an internet connection, you can search for a Magic DVD .iso file. An .iso file is an "image" of a CD that you can load with a CD-Emulator like Magic Disc.

Once you have the .iso and Magic Disc, you can mount the .iso and it will treat it the same way it would if you had the CD-ROM loaded in your drive.

From there, you can explore the .iso or run the programs from it.

Won't burn picture image


http://www.liteonit.com/global/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogsection&id=9&Itemid=69

if you can copy an image ( alone- nothing else waste a disc here) as a data file it's the software - uninstall and re-install it--- if you cannot copy the image as a data file , it's the software in a different capacity and may you need firmware from the link - I would uninstall the device in device manager and then let wizard find it on a re-start
