Hi all!
I recently bought a Sony DRU 510A DVD burner so I could start using
DVDR/RW's.
This complements the drives I already have - Yamaha CRW2200E cd burner
and Liton DVD/CD drive.
Running Win98se. Previously I used Nero6 with Incd4 for packet
writing. I understood these should also work with DVDR/RW's.
Problem was that neither Nero or Incd would recognize my new DRU 510A.
So I uninstalled them and installed the s/w that came with the drive -
RecordNow DX and DLA.
Both work with all drives but DLA is a pain in the butt.
After starting the pc, I can't access any of the drives. If I try to
run a program that uses a cd in the drive, I get the "drive not
accessible" message. I can't even eject the cd using the eject button
on the drive.
They only way is to go into My Computer or Windows Explorer and click
on each drive and then it's OK (assumming it has a cd/dvd in it).
Even then it's sometimes iffy and I don't see the label of the cd next
to the drive letter even though I see it's contents.
Sometime it the past I thought I had a problem with Incd and got into
the habit of disabling it at startup and just clicking on a shrtcut to
incd.exe when I needed it. Worked great.
Can't seem to to this with DLA.
Is there any other stand-alone packet writing software out there that
works with DVDRW's?

Update Nero to version 5.5.10.42, it should work. Though use of packet
writing is not often recommended, especially with DVDRW.

Try Nero/InCD Clean Tool, and then uninstall/reinstall RecordNow/DLA.

That the opposite. DVD+ RW is far more stable then CD-RW and a damm site
faster.
As for Nero. If it was bundled with the RW drive as OEM then it will
only work with that drive. You need to purchase a full licence to unlock
it

Actually, there have been many problems with DVDRW and packet writing
software, and considering the price of DVDRW media, losing a few discs is a
big deal. Saying that DVD is "far more stable" is like saying that a clean
pig is better than a dirty one. It's still a pig.
Also, there are no bundled versions of Nero 6 as far as I know, only Nero
Express.

Dan,
So you recommend I *downgrade* from Nero 6?
I've never had a problem packet writing to CDRW before. Is there
anything special about using DVDRW's?

Some in these cdr groups swear by the following:

"cd-rw is less reliable than cd-r, thus cd-rw is unreliable"
"cd-rw is the least reliable media, thus cd-rw is unreliable"

"Packet writing is less reliable than mastering,
thus packet writing is unreliable"

"Packet writing is the least reliable format,
thus packet writing is unreliable"

"DirectCD bugs translate into the faults of packet writing"
"DirectCD bugs translate into unreliability of cd-rw media"

Notes:
------
DirectCD does not conform to the UDF standard.
DirectCD does not set the UDF standard.
DirectCD is not the UDF standard.

Incompatibility with DCD does not translate that other packet writers
have bugs or do not conform to the UDF standard.

The problems are in the software and drivers for the software. I don't
recommend you use packet writing at all. If your version of Nero came with
another drive, it won't work with the Sony unless you buy a retail license.
DLA is well known for problems with DVDRW discs, not being able to erase
them is one common one. All the packet writing wares have one problem or
another.

It may be 'quite obvious' to you with your exquisite sense of time,
but it's not so quite obvious to me, Timmy boy. You see, I haven't
done the interview -- yet. In my calendar, future is future, not
past.

Didn't the FBI tell you I had been warned, Timmy boy? Only tell you

gotta admit to thinking this myself, til i played around with nero's version
recently - so far no errors at all
my experiences with directcd tainted my view completely as every single disc

"DirectCD bugs translate into the faults of packet writing"
"DirectCD bugs translate into unreliability of cd-rw media"

A lot of the DirectCD problems that are slimily blamed on the cd-rw
media and the packet writing format are caused by these DirectCD bugs:

-----------------------
DirectCD 3.05
Fixes

Some older, low-speed recorders cannot correctly write high-speed
rated CD-RW media, but DirectCD would formerly allow you to try.

DirectCD now checks the media and
will reject as appropriate. <=== FIXED ???

DirectCD 5.3.4
Fixed:

Burn to Ultra High Speed media on non-Ultra High Speed Drives,
no longer allowed <=== FIX a FIX ???

This is caused by the above bugs:

====================================================
From: "Pierre-Eric COLIN"
Subject: DirectCD is a VERY ROBUST piece of software
Date: 11/12/01

I've read many posts saying horrible things about DirectCD.

THIS IS UNFAIR. It is definitely a very robust piece of software.
And this is not free chating, I've got facts:

I'm using Windows 2000 SP2 and many complain about formatting CDRWs that
does not work.

Well, it works, better it ROCKS. I started a formatting yesterday before
going to sleep. (Thats is because formatting is a fast process taking 1
to 3 hours).

Guess what I found this morning? DirectCD was still up an running,
proudly stating "format in progress, verifying disk..." and the time
elapsed was a nice 10:36:07. That's a very significant amount of time
without crashing, that deserves a warm greeting in the Book of Records
of Toe-Written Software (It must have been written with toes, because
most-if-not-all development systems have macro fixing the lamest bugs,
infinite loops being one of them).

I am sincerely very impressed, because usually, DirectCD behaves in a
very different fashion, it just exits formatting, without logging its
errors, so if you hadn't spent 2 ages 1/2 with your eyes stuck on the
dialogbox, you have no clue of the reason why the whole shit failed.
Indeed this is unfair again, because the error message lasts at least 9
seconds.

So, time for the big bucks question... Tataaaaaaaaaaaa! Do I deserve a
such piece of software ? The answer is NO, period. So I will go
through the undocumented -12 hours- uninstall process, and

trash this ubershit out of my PC.

Fuck ECDC, Fuck DirectCD,
Fuck the developpers,
Fuck the technical support,
Fuck Roxio,

they fucked me!

Don't buy this crap, and if you really want to see it at "work", steal
it.

Gee...in looking thru your most recent posts, it's easy to come up with one
point that YOU'RE wrong on. You accuse Mike Richter of wife beating ( "Wife
Beating Stopped, Mike Richter?").

Yet, in one post, Mike advised he's never been married.

Guess that constitutes libel as you're making an accusation that can be
proved false. Wonder what it would take to force Randori to turn over your
e-mail address and personal information to all those that you've made
malicous statements against.

Timmy, why aren't you making use of the brilliant proof of libel by "No

At a guess - answering is much easier if you provide some information -
you are formatting an erasable for fixed-length packets. In that case,
you have a medium which is poorly matched to your drive.

When DCD formats, it reads back each sector to be sure it's well
prepared. With a mismatch, many sectors fail which means

formatting takes a looooooooonng time

and the result is too little usable space to be of value.

Try a disc better matched to your drive and be sure it matches the drive
for HS or non-HS.

Incidentally, with a little experience,
you're likely to find that

formatting an erasable is not a problem.

Fixed-length packets make for the least reliable format for
CD recording and few people find a need for many such discs.

Presumably, you're working with an erasable (CD-RW) blank. If so, it's


poorly matched to your drive.

When formatting, each sector is checked
and if faulty retired from service. That process is very slow and
results in little or no formatted capacity; any that is available is
particularly unreliable.

Try some blanks which are better matched to your drive - have lower
error rates. However, be aware that fixed-length packets are the least
reliable and most fragile format available for writing CDs.

Difficulty in formatting an erasable is most often due to the medium,
not to the software or drive hardware.

During a full format, each sector
is written and read back; if the error rate is excessive, the sector is
retried, then retired. Given errors, the process is very slow and even
if it succeeds, the disc is no longer reliable.

(Not that fixed-length packets are very reliable to begin with.)

Note that errors increase with erase cycles; the practical limit is far
less than the theoretical 1000 cycles.

You can check this by mastering an erasable then counting errors. You
should have better luck with a new erasable from a batch which has
worked before.

If that doesn't work, then try checking for dirt in the drive
- if necessary, blowing it out gently with "canned air".

Here Mikey may be slimily trying to imply that the above DirectCD bugs
are not bugs at all, or the bugs do not even exist -- since Mikey
supposedly knows all about High/Ultra Speed business:

Subject: Re: Can Any CDRW Drive rewrite any CDRW media?
Date: 6/5/03

Simply put, no, not all drives will write, erase, or overwrite all
erasable media. There are three categories of erasables: UltraSpeed,
HighSpeed, and undesignated. If your drive is UltraSpeed or HighSpeed,
it will be so designated on the logo on the faceplate. If not marked, it
means it is for undesignated discs.

[Liteon drives don't have such logos.]

If you do not use a blank with marking to match the designation on your
drive, you may be able to write more or less well and even to erase -
sometimes and without much confidence.

[Higher speed drives write to lower speed discs, ]
[except the initial 2x discs. ]

You may also find that a specific blank of the appropriate type is not
well written in your drive,

[ No friggin' shit, Mikey! ]

but the first step is to use matching
designations.

All that you say is very true. The crux of the situation is that
earlier versions of DCD worked just fine. Upgrading to Platinum
inititiated the problem.
