DVD will not complete


lubricity

Question

Installed sofeware yesterday. Updated drivers for two burners.

Tried to burn 4G of data on my computer to a DVD as a trial.

After 1 1/2 hours of burning at a rate of .28X to.53X it dumps out with problems. It will not let me finalize either. You can see that half the disc is burned approximately 2.2G is where it stops (TWICE)

Here is the code under advanced: Sense:03 ASC: OC ASCQ:00 Command 2A

The burners are 16X

The discs are 8X

In the beginning it says top speed possible is 8X but actual is .30X

It sounds like you are running in PIO mode. Check in Device Manager to make sure you are running in Ultra DMA Mode 2 or 4.

Same results, half a dvd burned, will not finalize, same error message.

And it took an hour and a half to do that. About 2G copied

I have lots on memory and ram. It did run at .5X most of the time tho.

I am running XP service pac II

So did I waste my money?

Well I unhooked the secondary drive and it is still not working.

 

Try deleting your secondary Ide/Atapi controller, reboot, and see if they are both running at Ultra DMA Mode 2. If the one is still in PIO mode, there may be no hope for it.

 

Also, make sure that both those burnerns are updated to the latest firmware. If they aren't, that could be part of your problem.

 

What are the brand and model number of your burners?

Thanks Grand Pa,

But I'm putting the machine back together. I did everything you suggested and more. I spent half the day on the phone and working on this piece of crap program. I'm taking it back to get my money back. It is not way ready for the public to use.

I would not of minded an hour or two to get running. But this is rediculous.

Upgrades, turn on, turn off, unplug, reboot, this reminded me of the old days. I have too much other things to do, to be tied to a computer for days triing to correct problems in a software package. These guys should be ashamed to put their name on the box.

I have to believe that you have something on your machine that is causing problems. Uninstall EMC 9, and see if your drive comes out of PIO mode. I bet it won't.

 

If you have a lot of stuff running at start up, go to msconfig, and shut down what you don't need.
