Unable To Burn Dvd's

Question

I attempt to burn my "My Documents" folder and after the initial check, the program starts the burn, but immediately stopped and displayed the following error.

 

Sense: 05 ASC: 30 ASCQ: 05 (Command 2A)

-------------------------------------------------------

Px.dll: 4.2.58.500

PxAFS.DLL: 4.2.58.500

pxdrv.dll: 1.2.16.0

PxMas.dll: 4.2.58.500

PxSFS.DLL: 4.2.58.500

PxWave.dll: 4.2.58.500

pxwma.dll: 1.0.0.3

 

I have 2 brand new HP dvd1040 DVDRW's. I got the drives because this error occurred on both of my old drives and I thought that since they were old there may be a problem with them. This error occurrs in both of the new drives. I have also bought different DVD's (ie.. Phillips -R and HP +R). The error occurrs on both types of DVD's.

My machine is a home built Machine. ASUS PK5 motherboard, 8 megs of Corsair Memory 800 mhz, properly paired, 500 GB WD Harddrive, Pentium E6750 2.66 GHZ dual core 64 bit Processor, and my OS is Vista Ultimate with SP1. The files I am attempting to copy are NTFS.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi,

 

The error Sense: 05 ASC: 30 ASCQ: 05 translates to "CANNOT WRITE MEDIA - INCOMPATIBLE FORMAT". The Px entries are just showing what version of PX engine you have.

 

What program are you trying to write the files with, and since you're running in Vista Ultimate your Vista Live File System [see the Vista Help] hasn't already set the discs up for its packet-writing system, has it?

 

I would guess that if you were trying to write with the EMC 10 authoring system it might find media prepared for the Live File System were in an incompatible format. EMC 10 wants blank discs for authoring.

 

Regards,

Brendon

The disks that I am using are blank disks. They are blank, fresh from the box HP DVD-R Phillips, Windata DVD +R, and Phillips DVD-R and a pack of Philips DVD +R. I haven't tried using the Vista Writing program, just EMC 10. I also followed the directions in the Roxio Self help FAQ. Checked Firmware on the DVD Drives, and deleted and had the OS reinstall the Drivers.

Yes, but have you disabled the Vista Live File System in case it is that which is getting in the way here?

 

Have you tried writing a disc with the Vista system, to confirm that your disc controller and operating system are working correctly?

 

And finally [because this is the cause of huge problems] which version of Vista Ultimate are you using, 32-bit or the 64-bit abomination?

Thank you.

 

I'm afraid I'm fresh out of ideas here, though. 64-bit Vista is terra incognita for me, and I've seen many complaints of all sorts of software that won't work in it, so I'm not game to install and play with it.

 

Regards,

Brendon
