LG GCE-8400B question

Burn baby burn!

LG GCE-8400B question

Postby Tette on Sat Jun 28, 2003 9:31 am

Hi there
Some days ago I bought a 800 mb cd-r just to try if it works to burn that amout of data on my LG GCE-8400b. It didn´t work! I found this site and a review about this cdr. In the review it says: "Last but not least, the GCE-8400B can also overburn up to 99 minutes and write CD-Text from within Nero"
I read some other stuff how to overburn, I couldn´t overburn more than some minutes more than 80 min. It seems like it isn´t capabel of burning 90 min. How come? What do I do wrong, I also used a programm from Ahead that told me that my 90 min cdr was a 80 min.... :x

Do I have to update the firmware to 1.3, is that what´s missing?

Tette, to overburn with Nero:

90 and 99 minute discs are nonstandard lengths, and will theoretically hold 791 MB and 870 MB of data respectively. They will always be recognized as 80 minute discs because this is the maximum length allowed by the standards. A disc over 700 MB (80 minutes) must use Nero overburn settings to allow it to be burned. Use the following settings for a data disk:

1. Don't use the Nero Wizard. It will not allow overburning as it defaults to Track-At-Once. If it is active, close it.

2. Multisession | No Multisession must be checked

3. ISO | Check Mode 1 and Joliet

4. Burn | Check Write and Finalize CD (No further writing possible). Write method must be Disk-At-Once.

5. In the main menu, File | Preferences | Expert Settings check "Enable overburn disk-at-once burning". If you are using a 90 minute disc, you can set the Maximum CD length to 90 minutes 0 seconds 0 frm. Hit Apply, then OK. If you are using a 650 or 700 MB data disc, use the overburn capacity test in Nero CD Speed to estimate the maximum overburn capacity. If for some reason the test doesn't work, create an audio overburn test disc to determine the overburn capacity. Use the determined overburn capacity in Expert Settings.

6. The Red and Yellow marker settings in File | Preferences | General Settings have no effect on burning or overburning. They are there just as a visual aid.

These settings should allow you to attempt an overburn if your recorder and the media support it.

To create an audio overburn test disc:

Most 80 minute CDR's can overburn from about 81.5 to 82.5 minutes or so. If you can spare a disc for testing, record an audio disc with extended length source material beyond the expected overburn capacity. When the burn eventually fails, the point at which it fails will be the overburn capacity of that disc. The audio disc will still be playable, and the total minutes of the disc is the total overburn capacity.

:o It finally worked for me. Somewhere on this site I found some information about overburning. I set maximum overburning to 90 minutes and "disc at once". No problems at all.

Perhaps here? :wink: :D 8)

Anyway, glad you got it working and made good use of the search function, even if poor Inertia posted in vain (but it is his standard cut-and-paste response to the overburning question, so it probably didn't cause him any pain).
