Age of Mythology

I feel like a real n00b, I just lost my back up of aom and tried burning a new one using bw. the read of disk 1 only takes 2-3 minutes. 30 seconds into the burn I hear "damm, we have a problem. there aren’t any settings in the new version to mess with, so what am I doing wrong??? I’ve tried several types of media (sony, phillips, hitech, memorex) none of this seems to help.

thanks for any and all help

Navigate to your VSO/Blind Write 5 folder and look at the log, and post it, it will have alot more information than you have provided

I don’t know if it makes any difference or not, but bw is the only burning software installed. Windows was just installed less than 12 hours ago. here’s the log:

I could swear I had a good back up of this game. if memory serves me it required a disk with a bwa file to do a proper install and then one with out to play from (I may have gotten these backwards)

I want you to try two things:
1: Disable IMAPI burning cd com to do this in run type services.msc scroll down until you see IMAPI Burning CD Com, hit the stop and then hit the drop down and change start-up type to disable. You can always come back and restart it.
2: If you are using Norton Anti-Virus disable auto-protect just long enough to burn your disk.
See if any of this will get you through.
If this does not help download the tweaker and post back. :bigsmile:

the only thing I didn’t do was disable NAV 2003. with that done I still get the error message. I have the tweaker and have played w/ some of the settings, still no success. I thought with the previous version of bw enhance weak sectors is suppose to remain off, is this correct?

thanks again

Jeremy

the only thing I didn’t do was disable NAV 2003
so you did not disable auto-protect to burn, disable autoprotect just long enough to burn. You can enable auto-protect as soon as you are done.
So if you did not dis-able auto-protect you really need to and try to burn again,.

sorry for the confusion, yes I did disable auto protect on NAV, the service was shut down (imapi) I made sure it was disabled. it still doesn’t work

The ASUS CRW-4816A is cocking up when it shouldn’t. The MMC error usually means that the writer is not gonna work with the software. I have a 1.0 4816A which has always worked fine except for disc recognition issues.

Is the disk image on the same IDE channel? Is DMA enabled? Is SETI@Home belting away while burning? Using an 80’ CDR/W?

the cdrw and HD are on two different ide cables. I think seti is a great thing, but I don’t have it installed. as for the DMA settings I don’t know where to look. Sorry, I still have a lot to learn.

I found the xfer mode is set to “ultra DMA Mode 2”. should this be set to “PIO only”???

Most certainly not. Any tips here?
