G5/DVR-106d/Panther device busy errors

Recommended Posts


While backing up, about every fourth DVDs will abort early with a "device busy (error 204)" error. As a result, I'm only getting about 90% of the capacity of the media (on the average). With one exception (obvious scarring of the media that I didn't catch until later), they have all read back correctly, so this error appears to be completely bogus.


I've wasted the equivalent of two full DVDs of capacity this past weekend. By the time I'm done with this first backup run, I figure I will have wasted about 20 discs worth of storage, making this a rather pricey bug.... Has anyone else seen this problem?
