Try doing a repair for DLA. ALso does it happen to every disc or only certain disc? ALso ensure your native CD recording for XP is disabled.

I am new at this but I have the same problem. any time I eject a cd while troubleshooting the blu screen I uninstalled Norton 360 which I had installed shortly before the problem. With Norton 360 out problem gone. I was here to see if someone had a work around

I am having the same problem, it was only since upgrading AVG 7.5 up to AVG 8!! I like AVG 8 and I need to use Sonic DLA as all my photos and backups are recorded using DLA! So hopefully there's a way round it!! Any ideas anyone?!?!

Same answer as Norton - AVG 8 is very unfriendly and causes a lot of problems

Two answers, altho you may not like either of them.

 

AVG is notorious for false positives. A friend of mine had AVG 8 on his computer briefly - it wiped out his address book and compromised a lot of software applications because he assumed everything it said was a threat, was a threat.

 

"Never trust your ONLY copy of an important file to a Packet-Written Program, like DirectCD, Drag-to-Disc, Nero's InCD, Sonic's DLA, etc. Packet-Written discs tend to fail, usually at the worst possible time." DirectCD is NOT a good choice for system backup. If you are moving a COPY of a file from one computer to another, with the original safely on the originating computer, it's a fine tool ... altho Flash drives (aka Pen / Thumb / Keychain / Jump drives) are better now that they've been invented).

 

You'd be MUCH better off to re-save all your data with a Sessions-Based program such as Sonic's Data Disc, or the built-in WinXP burning program - the ones that use a BLANK blank, directly out of the package or off the spindle. If you don't believe that, try a search for "Packet-Writing" (without the quotes).

I too am having the problem of getting a blue screen when trying to make compatible. I am running XP Pro. I have tried reinstalling Roxio Digital Media Plus v 7 and tried uninstalling AVG 8. I don't know how to do a repair of DLA, and I'm don't know what you mean by "ensure your native CD recording for XP is disabled. This happens both with CD R and DVDs.

In my previous post above, I mentioned the blue screen problems I am having with roxio sonic digital media plus v.7 . When I got my computer, no CD burning software was preloaded, but included was a Roxio DVD that has Digital Media Plus and also Easy Media Creator. I chose to install the Digital Media Plus and not the Easy Media Creator. Should I install both or do I only need one, and if so, which is better? Thanks

happens to me too this BSOD on eject/'making compatible'. It has never once worked since I installed it, and from the looks of this thread I may as well just find something that works instead, unless there are any more helpful ideas out there? :(

If you want to KEEP the data, DO NOT FORMAT the disc. DO NOT use any program that formats the disc.

 

DO USE a program that works in sessions - like the WinXP built-in burning or the Sonic RecordNow Data Disc.

 

If you want to use a Packet-Writing program like Sonic's DLA, Roxio's Drag2Disc, Nero's InCD, etc, to foramt the disc - Packet-Writing is notorious for losing ALL the data on the disc. Been there, done that, and nobody could tell me it was the wrong way until all the data disappeared.

 

Using "make compatible" is irrelvant as far as making it stable. It is for short-term use like transfering data, and you'd be better off with a Flash (aka Pen / Keychain / Thumb / Jump) drive if that's what you want to do.

I don't believe I have any Roxio Software on my machine except Sonic, but I do have to use DLA in order to drag & drop. I tried uninstalling it, and could never figure out how to drag & drop files to my DVD drive for quick data burning. I frequently get the BSOD on my Toshiba Laptop Windows XP Media when I eject a CD or DVD; whether I've just burnt it or whether I was just reviewing files on it. I use Avast Anti Virus and Super Anti Spyware and Spyware Blaster, but use them on other machines with no problem. I've got to where I am afraid to eject a disc until I close all other programs and windows, which doesn't seem to matter. Sometimes it just doesn't do it, and sometimes it does... can't seem to detect a pattern.

WinXP will not burn DVDs, so if you are using a DVD you do need an outside program.

 

That said, you COULD be using WinXP's built-in Sessions-based, drag-and-drop burning on CDs. If you use R media, it is pretty stable. As long as the disc isn't finalized ('make readable on all compuers') you can keep adding, altho there is a 'cost' of several MB on the first session, and a few more on each session thereafter.

 

You COULD be using Sonic's Sessions-based program, Data Disc, from inside RecordNow (either CD or DVD). In this case, you would be using a layout, but like WinXP, you can keep adding until it is closed or filled.

 

BUT you are choosing to use Packet-Writing, which is an unstable form of burning. It is suitable for things like moving files from one computer to another when the original is safely on the originating computer. However, as far as long-term archiving goes, it's a great way to permenantly LOSE the data.

 

You are in the beginning stages of the excitement. It will get even more exciting some time soon when you put the disc in and are told there is nothing on it.

 

You have the option of transferring the data off your Packet-Written disc to your Hard Drive and then using either WinXp or RecordNow to re-burn to R media, or waiting until the data disappears and, like me, you discover that the people who said not to do it are actually correct.

 

In the future, after you either re-save or lose the data, if you don't want to use Sessions-Based Writing, I'd suggest a Flash (aka Pen / Keychain / Thumb / Jump) drive - it comes a lot closer to a "great-big floppy-disc".

 

BTW - it is not a "flaw" in Sonic's DLA. (It is a Sonic program, you are correct it is not Roxio - it's from before Sonic bought Roxio and combined the two more-or-less.) It is inherant in ALL Packet-Writing programs, including DLA, Roxio's Drag2Disc, Nero's InCD, etc. And different brands of Packet-Writing won't read/write to each other's formatting, and sometimes are even incompatible with different Versions of the SAME program.

 

You can continue to use Packet-Writing if you wish. Eventually you will discover the thrill of losing all the data. At that point you may or may not be able to use a recovery program to get back some of it, but recovery programs aren't free.

Sounds like we're on the same side here, I was only using it it 'cos it came with the computer, but interestingly enough seems to work without fault on a laptop from the same company! I don't rely on it for backup, it was only for transferring stuff to non networked pc's, so I wholeheartedly support your view that

Thanks for the details. So what about using programs like Final Burner or Deep Burner or Roxio for burning session DVD's like for photography. Are they all using Packet-Writing for session DVD's? I've at least learned over time that I do not like a combined CD/DVD RW Drive. I'd like them separate next time. Each time I want to burn a CD, I have to right click on my drive and enable CD Burning on this drive by dragging and dropping, or disable it to burn DVDs. I believe that when I disable the "Allow CD Burning on this Drive", I can no longer drag & drop or even burn CD's... it only recognizes it as a DVD Drive.

 

I guess as cheap as the pen drives etc are, as you mentioned, it would be a great way to store things instead of DVDs/CDs. Just not as cheap as discs.

I've no idea about Final Burner or Deep Burner. Roxio does burn DVDs; someone will probably give the specific info, but one of them - either plus or minus - won't burn in sessions an the other will.

 

You NEVER EVER use Packet-Writing for sessions. They are different, like surveying and architecture, even if they both use math. I'm not sure where to find an explanation on the level you need.

 

And I do not understand at all your "problem" with CD/DVD drives - I suspect there is a clash between software programs.
