Error 80004003 or Sense:03

Question

I get the error code 80004003 when I burn certain DVDs. I can create DVD +rw discs, I can create some DVDs with +r media, but sometimes the same +r media does not work. I have tried 6 brands of DVD +r media. Basically all DVD with video based mpg files work, dvd with videos based on picture based mpg files fail.

Since my last post, I have burned over 30 DVD's using the 12x speed on my drive. I had no 80004003 errors or coasters during this time, so the drive speed was the cause.

 

I did have another problem with VideoWave not closing properly after editing a file. It completely locked up and was not responding. Since I had other things to do, I left it for an hour and came back to the same thing. I had to open task manager to manually shut the program down.

 

 

In reply to gi7omy,

 

I have been testing these Roxio burned DVD's on an old RCA/Thomson DRC212N Set-top player. They have all worked, including the first three which were burned at 16x. I have also tried these DVD's, on a relative's new Insignia set-top DVD burner/player with no problems.

 

My RCA player is quite old, and has always been slow to recognize DVD's burned on a computer. Once the DVD's are recognized, they play as well as any other DVD. It has nothing to do with the burn speed because this has been a problem since I used 4x DVD burners and media, and is no worse with 16x media or my other two DVD burners.

 

I have no plans to buy another set-top player. I switched to using media PC's about 6 years ago when I bought my first TV tuner card to build a Digital Video Recorder. Media PC'c combine the features of a stack of Audio/Video equipment in one box, and without the tangle of cables. The only other box needed is a satellite or cable tuner for encrypted broadcasts.

 

I am still using IE7 on this system. I just built it a few months ago, and have had no reason to switch it to Firefox. On my older machines that I use Firefox on, it is the only browser installed.

With a laptop, you won't have a video 'card' but an onboard chipset. What model of nVidia graphics are you using (right click anythere on the desktop, go to properties, settings and tell us what it says there).

 

In the meantime, try switching to software rendering and also 'burn' your file to the hard drive as a .iso image. If that completes, open it with disc copier and let that write to the DVD

I have had many problems with EMC9. I think that I have solved the 80004003 burn issue on my system by limiting the burn speed to x12 instead of x16. I have burned three in a row with no coasters.

 

I know that Internet Explorer 7 was a problem on my system because it caused a renderer error when trying to use VideoWave. I had to revert back to IE6 to solve this problem. I do not like this at all, and in the future I will either use a different browser or move EMC9 to another computer dedicated to only video editing.

 

I like the speed and compression quality of using MyDVD when it works. It is better than Nero 7 or Ulead Movie Factory 4. If it was not for this feature I would have stopped trying to make this work.

 

 

I have uninstalled "Drag to Disk", disabled the "Media Manager" search, and never installed the ring tones or video conferencing options.

 

I am wondering if using nVidia Video cards is part of the problem using IE7. Does anyone know yet?

 

 

motherboard - Intel DG965WH

video card - nVidia GeForce 7900 GS

CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo 6400

memory - 1 GB of DDR2 800

DVD burner - Sony DW-G120A

Actually, nVidia has just recently updated the drivers - you could try those and see if there's any improvement.

 

Browsers - I'd recommend Firefox from www.mozilla.com - it's a tabbed browser and is less resource hungry than IE (and comes with a lot of plug-ins and extensions that you can download as and when you want - it's even sensible enough to tell you what plug-in you may need for a particular site and then go off and get it)

 

For video work - I'd seriously recommend you drop the speed even farther - to round 4x

Thanx qi7omy

 

Since my last post I switched to x12 on my Sony DVD burner, and have not had any lockups, reboots, or burn errors. I looked for new firmware, and have not found any. This is not unusual, and I had no luck with Sony's Support. I then looked around the internet using other options. It seems I have the best driver which is designated as MYR5. I am using Imation media from 100pks, and I doubt that is the problem. It may not cost as much as some other media, but it has very good reliability, and I have only had one coaster in 400 using other software.

 

I am using an XFX version of the nVidia GeForce 7900 GS video card, and they had no updated driver. I downloaded the new driver from NVidia. This is version 93.71 and I installed it. I then installed Internet Explorer 7 again.

 

This new driver from nVidia has solved the "renderer error" problem. and allowed me to use IE7 again. I was about to switch to Firefox as my browser on this computer because of this problem. I have been using Firefox on some of my other computers, and will probably switch to it on this computer. I just wanted to solve this problem with nVidia 7 cards and IE7 for other people first.

 

My first DVD burned clean, but I had a problem with my second one. I closed out the previous project in MyDVD, and then opened another one to edit. The edit went well with VideoWave, but when I tried to burn it, the burn option was not available. I think this is because the compression ratio is beyond what is allowed.

 

I do not want to go beyond a decent compression ratio, but there was no warning, error message, or explanation of why I could not burn it. The button for burning was not highlighted, so this is the only reason I have been able to come up with.

 

I also have tried to find a way to prevent the previews of videos in "MyDVD", and "Media Manager" to speed up the process of editing. My computer is obviously not the problem with speed in this process, and I need to eliminate any slowdowns in the process.

 

I have not tried to figure this out yet, but I am assuming that "Media Manger" is an integral part of the EMC9 and cannot be eliminated from the installation. I have not found a way to disable these video previews, and any help would be appreciated.

 

Since my last post, I also changed the properties settings on my DVD drive. I had already uninstalled the "Drag to Disk" function, but I found that the "Enable UDF recording" feature had been enabled on my DVD drive. I disabled this, and enabled the "CD recording" feature.

 

There are still some bugs I need to figure out, and the GUI has problems. There have been to many people working on this software, and there are duplications in work. It has some good features, but they need to be streamlined, and updates made.

Since my last post I got some sleep, and tried to burn another DVD that was to large. I did find a message telling me there was not enough room on the DVD. I was in small print at the top of the window instead of near the burn button.

 

Just another minor detail!

 

I have been able to burn five DVD's without a renderer error, 80004003 burn error, lockup, or reboot since I switched to x12 for the burner, installed the new drivers for the video card, and reinstalled IE7. I have at least 30 more DVD's to burn, so I will know by the end of the day if the major problems are solved.

Hi, I have the same error. I had to abandon v7 after using it successfully for a year - had all of the errors, apparently related to WMP11 and I think IE7 - but not salvagable - all of the errors were burning. I would get the file set and ready and it would try to burn for ages and then eject the disk, say it wasn't a valid MPEG and then give me three error messages.. Finally, had to uninstall EVERYTHING and then v9. Now, I have 9 and I still can't burn - I get the 800040003 error. So very frustrating!

The reason for my suggesting using 4x as opposed to 12x had nothing really to do with successful burns - more that a fair percentage of set-top players seem to have problems in reading stuff that was burnt at a higher speed.

 

Firefox - if you're going to use that, uninstall IE7 (it does cause problems elsewhere and remember, it's a Vista app backported to XP and makes changes to the OS kernel). Oh and don't overlook the fact that no MS browser is W3C compliant either. In fact, IE7 is so off the standard a web design friend of minde once said half-jokingly that they were all going to make a small fortune making web sites IE7 compatible ;)

This problem is really wild. I have created over 30 DVDs on 10 types of media. Everything works great. All except when I go to create DVDs that are based on a MPG file created with pictures only. Then I get this error message. I have cleaned my system, upgraded all drivers, did all the small little things in all the help sections, but still no luck. I have created different photo based mpg files with video wave 9.0 and still the same problem. The actually DVD that is created when I get the error message has all the files on it and works in most DVD players, however the burning process ends with this error message and does not finalize the disc.

 

I have a dell Laptop, with XP, an nvdia card and TSST Corp DVD burner that came preinstalled in my dell laptop.

WMP 11 and IE 7 were made for Vista. They break programs, including EMC 7, 8, and evidently, sometimes 9.

 

Uninstall WMP 11 and IE 7.

Have been following this issue since last week because I've had the same problem. Had burned several videos in the past, all with similar media but when got to the last one, would go thru a couple hours of encoding only to find out it wouldn't burn and got the 80004003 message.

 

Based on earlier messages I tried this morning on DVD+RW at 4x. Worked fine. I actually think the picture quality at 4x may be a little better.

 

Had tried DVD+R at 8X and DVD-R at 16X without success earlier

 

Thanks to all for input.
