Error Code -> "invalid Parameter" ['0X00000004]

Question

Hello;

 

I am receiving error code -> "invalid parameter" ['0x00000004] when trying to burn a movie to a dual layer DVD. My DVD Lightscribe Player/Recorder accepts DL DVDs. I have done this before I installed SP2 with no difficulty.

 

Steps I took:

 

As there are not too many "knobs" on the copy software, I did only two things. 1) I slowed the write speed to 2048, and 2) I increased the buffer size to over 200 MB. I have lots of disk space - about 1/3 of the hard drive the source files are on, the drive has been defragmented so I do have a lot of contiguous space on the drive on which the source files reside, and my machine has 6 gig of RAM.

 

I have not had this problem before I installed SP2, but that was a long time ago, and I've applied some software updates since the time I bought the Roxio 2010 product and installed SP2 so anyone reading this please don't jump to the conclusion that it is SP2 causing my problem although it could very well be. I am using brand name discs; I tried Memorex and Ativia discs.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions? Does anybody have a fix or can point out what I'm doing that I ought not to be doing to cause the error?

 

Thanks in advance for any and all input.

It could be the discs themselves - Memorex are down round the bottom of the heap for quality (I can't say about Ativia as I've never come across those). The best ones are Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden/JVC

 

However - do you get the same error if you try to burn an image file to the hard drive? If you can, then the fault is happening in the burner/disc area - if not, then we can dig deeper

What operating system are you using and what service packs are applied?

 

All this SP2 talk is that Creator 2010 SP2 update?

 

What application in the C2010 suite are you referring to or using, "on the copy software" be specific please?

I'm using Vista SP1, can't get SP2 installed there, and MS' advice is to go to W7. I was talking about Creator 2010 and Creator SP2, and that is mentioned in my original post. Is English your first language? Lastly, if I'm copying a set of files to a DVD, it would therefore be a safe assumption that I am using the Copy sub-program, no? Specific enough?

LOL! Your assumption is wrong, but you go ahead and figure out why. :)

Perhaps the OP can sort through these since it is probably a Windows/hardware error.

Musing aloud . . . trainernj thinks: this is precisely the reason I don't like using these KBs and boards as they are usually populated with people who have no lives and/or who delight in denigrating anyone who asks a question as someone who doesn't know anything. My friend, I have worked on computers from the time one shoveled coal into the back of them to make them run, and over the years have designed mission critical databases for money center banks, brokerage houses and other Fortune 50 companies in my career. Now, have whatever fun you and the rest of the frequenters of this board wish to have with that as I no longer intend to use this mechanism to get my problem resolved unless I get a response with some meat in it.

 

Moreover, it should have been blatantly clear and intuitively obvious to the most casual observer from the wording of my original question that I was talking of Creator 2010 SP2 and not Windows [pick your version] SP2. Rather than get some information from the original responder, I got a set of curt questions which didn't help me in resolving the problem. I am running a business, not spending my days scouring KBs and other boards, and don't have time for a cat and mouse game with someone who probably has a band-aid holding their glasses together and a pocket protector for every day of the the week.

 

Now, if you are someone out there wants to give me a hint as to what might be happening or a direction in which to look, I'll be happy to debug the problem myself, but I don't need or want any more useless responses.

Are you trying to burn a DRM movie to a disc? What is the format of the movie?

 

It seems evident that we are just poor, simple, ignorant people who use this program almost on a daily basis but don't know what we are talking about.

 

I suggest this:

 

"Flagship Telephone Support

 

Roxio offers complimentary telephone support for our flagship products within the first 90 days of purchase.

 

Our flagship products include: Creator 2010, Toast 10 and DVDit Pro HD.

No other versions or products will be supported through this phone number. Please note that the use of this complimentary service does not guarantee resolution of the issue.

 

To initiate a complimentary technical support call, toll-free, 1-877-793-7471

 

Hours of operation:

 

Monday - Friday, 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., EST - excluding Roxio holidays."

With your arrogant attitude you will get very few posters here wanting to help you:angry:

 

 

Perhaps if you made clear exactly what you are trying to do and answered some of the questions that have been asked.

At one point you say you are trying to "burn a movie" to a DL DVD and in another post you are trying to "copy some files to a DVD". So which is it?
