Dvd writer problem - command sequence error

  Minsk 15:48 21 Jun 07


I have a sony g170a dvd writer, which works fine when copying dvd's or cd's, but when trying to burn a downloaded iso to disk using nero ir imgburn I get an error message saying command sequence error, which seems to relate to the drive.

Any help or advise on what this means and what can be done would be appreciated.

This is my 1st post and I'm not very tech savvy so please be gentle!

Have you tried limiting the burn-speed to near or at the minimum?

There are two things that come to mind which may be causing the problem, 1) the speed you are burning at may be too high and 2) the type of media you are using.

I have no idea of either the speed or the media you are using but you should try burning at 2x if you are currently at a higher speed and possibly change the media manufacturer.

Have tried reducing the write speed to 1x but that does not seem to have any effect.

Am burning to a very cheap cd-r 700 mb disc

Also say get a 2nd error message saying

Synchronise Cache failed!

Device (1:0:0) Sony dvd rw aw-g170a 1.71 (D) (ATA)

Reason: Command Sequence Error

As johndrew suggested, get better media
