Burn error "Drive Is In Use By Another Application"

vbimport

#1

I have a NEC DVD RW 2500 A. Using Nero 6 Ultra to burn dvd’s. Nero copies the image just fine. When it goes to burn the image on the dvd disk, It returns message “Drive Is In Use By Another Application”. THe burn process fails. This is with all dvd’s. This started After installing Windows XP SP2. So, i removed it. But I’m still getting the error. HELP !! I upgraded firmware to 1.06. NO HELP. I saved a log file below.

#2

1- Upgrade from Nero 6.0 to Nero 6.3.1.20.

2- Stop the XP service called “COM service / CD IMAPI” or something like that in english (I have a french version…) that is used by the MediaPlayer and conflicts with Nero at startup.


#3

Hi, as stated above. Go to Admin tools\services and disable “IMAPI CD-Burning COM service” that should fix it.


#4

I disabled the IMAPI CD-Burning Com service. It looked like it wasnt running, it was set to Manual and it’s status was not started it was blank. Still wouldnt let me write to dvd with same message. I went into task manager and stopped the process, IMAPIROX.EXE, it was still running even after the service was disabled. Finally, I was able to perform dvd write. I havent used Roxio in 2 years, it awakened like Night of the Living Dead after I installed MS XP SP2. In the interim, I removed all the XP SP 2 updates, they were causing network problems for me as well, everytime I clicked on a link or went to open another page on the web, I would have to enter user id and pw each time.

Thanks alot Italian Job and Happynow, I appreciate you solving this problem for me. Now that my burner is working again, I can go on to live a normal and happy life. : )


#5

The new Nero fixes a few problems with XP SP2 try it. Latest is 6.3.1.25
