Blue Screen while burning with drag to disc


Milt

Question

I have the LG DVD drive GSA-4167b and it came with the basic version of Nero. It did basic burning ok but I decided to get EMC 9 Suite. I used drag to disc and successfully burned 1 disc on DVD-R. On the next disc it burned normally for about 1 GB and I got a blue screen then my pc rebooted. After it recovered I checked the disc and all the files/folders were there up to the point of the crash.

I inserted another blank disc and tried again and with the same results- blue screen and reboot.

 

Here are the error messages:

I am not really technically oriented so I have no clue as to what the errors were. Does this sound like a software issue or a hardware problem? Below are the specs on my system. I'll appreciate any ideas/suggestions that you may be able to offer.

Thanks, Milt

Thanks for your input. I did remove Nero before installing EMC 9.

 

Since my original post above I went to Classic Creator and easily and flawlessly burned 3 DVDs. That seems to confirm that my problem was directly connected to D2D. Drag to disc is a very handy feature but it seems that it inherently has problems. I guess the major question is, if it continues to be unreliable, why is it still included and promoted as a great feature in EMC? If it can't be fixed, maybe it needs to go.

It continues to be included, just like Nero includes INcd, and the original Sonic included DLA, and the miriad of other companies versions out there (including one in Vista now), because way back when someone had the idea they could make cd discs try to act like floppy dics. Consumers like the idea, unfortunately the technology has never reliably delivered on the idea. So as long as consumers are interested and think they want it, companies will continue to offer it.

It is not unheard of… You can browse, Tips & Tricks, for some of my suggestions on D2D.

 

There is a patch for Dell's & Vista that some say works for non-Dell and XP, Roxio KB. I tried it but while it did no harm, it likewise did no good…

 

Make sure you have Nero's InCD removed from your PC. You can only have One packet writer running on a PC or there is trouble!

 

Note that packet writing has proven unreliable and should never be used for backups or archives!

Drag to Disc causes my XP Home edition to crash and restart without any warning. Failure is consstantly associtated with large files (about 1/2 gig). One example crashes the computer just after the second file begins trasferring. In order to successfully save these files I have manually aborted the process after the first file finishes. Then I restart the process. I am using a "Writemaster" CD/DVD burner thru my USB port on a fully populated 2.8 gigHZ Gateway Profile computer.

 

I am using the MS robocopy program for backing up my files but the failure occurs no matter what method I use to "drag-to-disc".

 

It looks like an internal buffer overrun. Are there any fixes?

What the heck is a fully populated computer? LOL! Try using Creator Classic for backing up your files. I have no clue what robocopy is, but if you have more than one packet writing software, on your computer, they won't play together.

Fully populated means maximum memory for the motherboard. Robocopy is a MS program (found on your Windows Disc) and I believe it stands for "Robust Copy command". A properly configured batch file allows replacement of updated files.
