Burning hangs randomly

Question

:angry2:

 

At this point am I am very frustrated for all the problems I have been facing ever since I got this software!!

 

I am now burning an ISO image to a DVD. Its size is aprox 3.5 Gb.

 

I tried 2 times and it got stock at some random sector of the DVD... The first time I though.. welll maybe something wrong with the DVD, next time I was considering something wrong with my unit. So for testing, I used a different software (CD Burner XP). It burned it quickly with no issues at all.

 

Can anybody explain me why a free software is able to burn the image while this Roxio software is having problems?

 

My unit is Matshita DVD +-RW UJ862A

The DVD is Sony DVD-R 4.7 Gb

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi Fagopher, can you add a bit more info on the unit you are using, not just the DVD drive model?

Take a look at our signatures, they have our details so it makes it easier to try to get a resolve, and as Dave has said check

out the updates and help info

If your Dell came with Easy Creator 2010 SE, then support comes from Dell. Still, I see no reason off hand why you are having issues. Do you have the installation CD?

Some other things to try.

 

1. PxEngine 3 apply this update and reboot. It's a long shot.

2. Try burning at a slower speed.

3. Review the Dell web site and update your drivers and bios if needed.

Creator 2010 SE is Special Edition; not DE whihc is the OEM Dell edition. SE is Creator 2010 with the USB capture device sold by places like Cosco.

Your test, with the native XP burning software, was useless. It told you that you could burn a CD, NOT a DVD, which uses a different laser. Your old DVD burner may have gone belly up on the DVD burning end.

 

You can try the PX 3 engine, as Dave suggested, but I don't think that that is your problem, but who knows?

Not what he said… The "CDBurnerXP" is a freebee burning program that seems to have a lot of features – Here

 

But fagopher has also been running another thread that indicates he had a botched install. He had no content, but it raises the question of what else did not go right???

 

I think it is time for a Clean Install (XP) preceded by the Prep Steps: KB Page
