Buffer Under Run Illegal Request

a buffer under run is caused by the data not being transferred fast enough to the drive and that's usually down to a bottleneck somewhere on the computer.

 

Not necessarily in this order:

 

1:- Defrag your drive so that the files are contiguous

2:- ensure you have plenty of free space for temp files

3:- try making an image file first and then open that with Creator to write that to the disc

4:- make sure that your drive firmware is up to date and that the drive itself is in IDE and not PIO mode

I have done all that still having the same problem I can burn it using Nero but in Creator I get this error?

You didn't mention what application your using to burn the DVD that fails? A example below is for Creator Classic and Video Copy and Convert applications within the Suite...

 

After you push the burn button a Burn Setup window opens, the top half of this window is your burners, the middle save disc image file, the bottom burn options. On the bottom click the + next to Advanced Options, the first check box below is Buffer Underrun Prevention, it is checked with the default settings. It's there to help you with the burn not hurt the burn, why it fails in Roxio and Not Nero with the same disc's and same burner, is a mystery!

 

Go down to #3 in my signature 'Enabling/Checking DMA in Windows Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 9x' and check your settings.

I'm using Creator 2009. I Open the Main Menu, click on Video-Movies, then Create DVD- Advanced. When I open my project and click "Burn" at the top I get the Burn setup window but there is no advanced options as you describe.

Creator 2009 is not a Program… Think of it as a Box where all of the Programs are kept.

 

You described opening MyDVD from the Home application.

 

In that application the Advanced Options button doesn't exist.

Best bet is to try burning to Save disc image file then use Video Copy & Convert to burn that file (ISO) to disc. – in VCC you can set the buffer underrun.

ckelly33, lets not get confussed and try to stay on target. Have you checked the DMA # 3 in my signature?

 

why it fails in Roxio and Not Nero with the same disc's and same burner, is a mystery!

 

Is that true? If you don't answer questions we aren't going to get anywhere..

 

 

Even though MyDVD doesn't show a Buffer Underrun Prevention setting, I can't believe a 'World Leader in Burning Software,' there isn't one at work!

My guess would be that it is automatic in MyDVD - but that is only a guess...

 

ckelly33: cd is right, if you don't start providing feedback people will lose interest in throwing you suggestions in the hope one will stick :D

Sorry, I appreciate the help but I can only do these things when I am home from work.

 

I turned DRM off in both of my drives and for whatever reason, my compter ran noticeable slower...like 10x slower, without exaggeration. I have no idea if that caused it but I seriously doubt it although it was the only change I made. After I made the change (unchecked the DRM boxes in both of my drives), I restarted and it took probably 20 minutes to fully load. Even after it was booted up, loadeing and executing was terribly and painfully slow.

 

I patiently waited on MyDVD to load and wound up getting the same buffer error. I'm gonna try some new BD's. I've always used Memorex but this time I bought Sony's.

 

I've tried a TON of programs (DVDit Pro, Adobe Premiere, etc) and all burn but oddly enough I can only get BD-RE's to consistently play in my BR players (PS3, Panaonic BD-30 & BD35, Samsung BDP-UP5000) - if at all. That is primarily what has led me to buy and try so many programs. This one won't even attempt to burn, just the error.

 

Thanks for the guidance. Keep it coming please!! I want to finally be happy and settle on one program!

 

BTW, I have yet to try to burn the .iso image first, mostly out of stubbornness. I really don't want an extra step if I can get this to work.

Do you mean you turned off DMA? Why? You were supposed to use this

Go down to #3 in my signature 'Enabling/Checking DMA in Windows Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 9x' and check your settings.
to make sure it was enabled.

 

You need to post your computer specs!

 

Start over and explain in detail in what Roxio software and in what application your trying to do what?
