48246S problem

I have problems with this drive. I’m running Windows XP Pro and windows installs it’s default driver for this device. I am able to install applications from the CD drive and listen to music. But when it comes to burning it halts and keep trying to spin up in speed. I have tried most burner programs and even tried to install Adaptec ASPI layer, Nero ASPI layer which I currently have installed.

All the programs does the same thing:

  1. It finds the drive as a recorder and im able to change settings, ie. speed of writing etc.

  2. It verify that there is a empty CD in the drive

  3. When i click burn, it tries to fill the buffer and that’s when it goes wrong i think. Then it continually tries to speed up the drive and takes so much (power from my PC) so if you try to close the application with task manager END TASK, it takes forever to close if able to close it at all…most times i have to reboot…as a only solution. I dont have any AV installed, or firewall. I have 3 hard drives and this drive is master on secondary ide controller.

Ill put some log here too:

Hi and welcome! :slight_smile:

What chipset do your mainboard have and what IDE drivers are you using?

Nvidia Nforce IDE drivers and intel application accelerator is known to cause such problems.

if you have nforce IDE drivers - uninstall them and use the M$ IDE drivers only. And uninstall intel application accelerator if installed.

Hi I have VIA chipset on the mainboard.

And drives loaded in device manager for CDRW drive is from microsoft.

The primary/secondary and controller IDE drivers are from m$ as well.
