Disc Copier - Writer Error 03/0c/00


rescuedogs

Question

Hi .... does anyone know what this error message means?

I've successfully captured an mpeg file but cannot seem to burn it to a disc without this error message popping up. I disabled Norton and other programs that could conflict, lowered burning speed and use brand name discs - but am not having much luck.

Thanks.

What brand name disc are you useing?

4. DMA Settings

Setting DMA mode:

 

Windows 95/98/ME Users

 

Right click on [My Computer] and select [Properties] from the menu. Click on [Device Manager], then click on [CD-ROM]. This will expand to show the CD drives on your system. Right click on a drive and select [Properties] from the menu. Click on the [settings] tab and check that the [DMA] option is enabled. Repeat this procedure for the remaining CD drives.

 

Win NT/2000/XP Users

 

Right click on [My Computer] and select [Properties] from the menu. Click [Device Manager] on the [Hardware] tab, then click to open the [iDE ATA/ATAPI (hard disk) controllers] section. You will find: the Primary IDE Channel controller, Secondary IDE Channel controller. Complete the following procedure:

 

Right click on the Primary IDE controller and select [Properties] from the menu.

Select the [Advanced Settings] tab. Check that the [Transfer Mode] for both devices is set to [DMA if available].

Repeat this for Secondary IDE controller.

 

 

Note: In some cases older CD-ROM drives will not support DMA mode. In that case please set both devices to PIO mode.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Disc

 

 

 

Recording errors often occur when the disc is dirty, or has fingerprints or scratches. If an error occurred during test simulation (before actual recording), clean the disc. If you are getting recording errors, try the following.

Use a different blank, recordable disc.

Use a different manufacturer's disc.

Ensure the disc is clean before recording:

Remove all fingerprints, dirt, and dust from the shiny side of your disc using a nonabrasive cloth with a mild, nonabrasive soap solution.

Wipe the disc from the center to the edge of the disc.

Dry the disc completely.

 

 

Error during file verification

If an error occurred when the files were being verified, record the same files again using a different disc.

 

 

Read error when copying a disc

When copying a disc, if an error occurred while reading data from the original disc, the original disc may be scratched or dirty.

Try cleaning the disc.

Remove all fingerprints, dirt, and dust from the shiny side of your disc using a nonabrasive cloth with a mild, nonabrasive soap solution.

Wipe the disc from the center to the edge of the disc.

Dry the disc completely.

Try using a different source drive.

To change the drive you use to read your disc, click the Change button when asked to insert a source disc into your drive tray.

Select the drive you wish to use from the drop-down menu.

Insert your disc into the new drive.

Try using copying the disc using one drive as both the source and destination drive.

When you use your recorder to both read and write to your disc, B's Recorder GOLD creates an image file of the entire disc to your hard drive and then copies that temporary file onto your blank disc. This can be helpful if the drive you are using to read your original disc is slow or unreliable.

 

If the problem persists, contact the drive maker.

 

 

 

 

 

6. Drive

If you have tried Actions 1 through 5 above, there may be a problem with your drive. Contact the drive maker with details of the error code. If the 5th and 6th digit of the error code is 80 through FF, then the error code is maker unique. The descriptions of these error codes differ depending on the maker.

Thank you for these hints ....

I'm not sure if I was suppose to refer to steps 1-3 (since I didn't see any) ... But I will try these.

Using the same drive to copy and burn works sometimes, but it's still temporamental.

 

The burner I'm using is only 1 month old and was recommended as "one of the best" by a couple to Tech friends - I'm not very techinical so I'm taking their word for it. It's ... AOPEN 16X16 DBL LYR DVD+/RW CHAMELEON

 

As for the error messages ... sometime it happens, sometimes it doesn't. It's quite finicky.

 

I've been using various brand discs from Brand Names such as HP to a more generic brand (Playo). This error message isn't selective as it's occured on all discs.

"Using the same drive to copy and burn works sometimes, but it's still temporamental. "

 

If your copying from drive to drive and there on the same IDE channel slow the burn speed down. Or cache the content to the HD and burn from there.

 

"AOPEN 16X16 DBL LYR DVD+/RW CHAMELEON"

Is probably a retagged Lite-on, and for that drive Lite-on might have 2 or 3 firmware updates Aopen usually has none.

Next time do your own home work, and buy a retail drive from someone who actually makes the drive, Nec, BenQ, Pionner, Lite-on.

Use a disc identifier program dvdinfopro, dvd identifier, cddvdspeed.

Same as the drive with media, very few make media. The HP could be one brand today another tomorrow, good now bad next batch.

The Playo is probably land fill material but you could get lucky if they buy a batch of good media and put there name on it.

 

I use Verbatim MID's 8x-R MCC 02RG20, 8x+R MCC 003, 16x -R MCC 03RG20, 16x+R MCC 004, Taiyo Yuden 8x-R TYG02.

The 8x I burn at 8X and the 16x at 8x or 12x off the HD.

 

The Verbatim I buy at Sam's $15 to $20 for 50, and at Bestbuy on sale for$15 for 50. The Taiyo Yuden about $23 for 50 w/shipping online from supermediastore.com, and Rima.com.

You might check to see if you have the latest firmware for your burner.
