Device sense error?

When I try to use the feature of "Drag & drop" files into a DVD-RW, when it tries to burn, it will soon come up with the error message "Device sense error" & it fails.

 

What does this mean?

 

Thank you.

 

Are you talking about the Roxio BURN application? The device sense error should have a code with it. What are the numbers. It simply means that Roxio can't "talk" to your burner.

When I have a DVD-RW in my E drive, I like to "Drag & drop" folders of files from my desktop in there, when I click on the "burn disc flame" logo, it starts burning, but then before it finishes, I will get this message "Device sense error" What does this mean?

 

Someone in a similar thread hinted that Memorex disks are problematic. (what I was using)

 

I did not get any numerical error codes.

Device Sense Error's are the drive reporting it can't do it

 

It could well be the Memorex or even the drive itself

 

 

Since I have no other issues with this drive & burning cds & DVDs, I will try a different brand of DVD-RW, I think Memorex has given me problems before. Sony has worked well.

 

Any other suggestions?

What you burn to a disc is important so I would not scrimp on the disc. I suggest Verbatim or JVC (Taiyo Yuden). The JVC may be available on line only. This is for example only; it is not intended to suggest that you buy from this site or any other. Nor does it suggest that other DVD media does not work. Verbatim may make -R only.

 

This chart listing quality of DVD media is for information only. It does not mean that every disc/pack age disc is good/bad.

Well, I tried Sony DVD-RW & got the same error.

I use Sony DVD-R all the time for making home movies, Etc...no problem.

 

I wonder if it's there's a setting that needs to be made, or if it's a software issue?

Anyone else ever get this error..."Device Sense Error" ?

If the same error occurs witrh other media, then it's time to suspect the drive itself.

 

Sense codes are NOT software errors - they are drive errors

 

 

The drive works fine for playing & burning DVD-Rs & CDs

 

Previously, I had used Easy Media Creator 7, and the "drag & drop" feature worked fine.

With Media Creator 10, I get the error. I think I will try Verbatim brand. If that doesn't work, I wonder if there is a setting that needs to be addressed?
