View Full Version : error message after burning but md5 ok

2008-04-22, 09:58 PM
Hi all :D

maybe my burner it's going to crash, but sometimes it gives me error after burning or during the check phase.
The last time... one hour ago with 1987-08-26 MSG RW show.
I've checked the md5 with trader's little helper and everything's ok.

a suggestion, please. IF the md5 is correct it means all the files have been burned well, right? :confused: maybe it's only a -strange- message from my burner, but the dvd it's ok?

thanks for your opinion

It would help if you told us the exact error message you are receiving and what software you are using to burn the dvd with.

yep :D

I use "Sonic" a toshiba oem sw, given with my toshibaA60 notebook.

Sometime it gives this error (in italian): error in writing burner can't blah blah no particular error code. sometimes it gives the error: error in verifying, blah blah.

no specific message, so I can't say more.

But the md5, often , not always, it's ok... :shut::o

I would like to know if I can consider the dvd ok, if the md5 check is ok and the video is watchable.

Thanks A_L! :sexy:

What software are you using to burn, and have you got the correct Codecs installed on your laptop?

The name of the software is "Sonic" given with my toshiba notebook.

codec? why codec? :confused: I'm asking about burning process and errors :( not about playing.

The question could be less specific.

If using any burning program, I obtain an error but the md5 check is ok, and watching the video everything seems ok, can I consider my dvd ok?
(expecially for the correct md5 check) :)

I don't want to take attention away from stefano's question, but I have a semi-related inquiry:

After writing a disc, one way I like to check for a good burn is to benchmark it; basically spin the disc at maximum speed, and measure how fast I can read the data off it (using Nero CD-DVD Speed, DVDInfoPro, or similar tool).

When my machine was new, I would get a nice smooth constant angular velocity graph. Now, the plot of disc position vs speed has a staircase appearance.

I cannot think of anything that changed before this happened. Is this a symptom of a failing drive?
