ok i just bought a LG 4167 DL, i picked up a 5 pack of memorex -R, downloaded nero 7 trial ver. i made 2 copies of an 8 minute video by accident (i know better) i burned at max speed 16x, well the first copy was great but the next copy and all others that i tryed at 1x failed with a error message DMA Driver error, CRC error. i am using xp and have had very good luck with burning cds in the past. any help would be greatly appreciated thank you
Welcome to the forum
Check if you have DMA enabled. Take a look here
yes i printed the error report and it shows dma on i also checked in device manager same thing, 1 thing that i did notice in the report was bus type atapi, detected:?
This is correct: burner works with ATAPI.
What media did you used? Have you checked IDE cables?
memorex dvd-r 16x, do you mean replug the cables, i will try that, but do you know what a crc error might be
If cable is damaged you surely will obtain CRC errors. Can you try different cables?
Also I suggest to try with different media: these memorex are rather bad media.
Can you do a burst rate test? Simply insert a pressed DVD on the burner, load CD-DVD Speed and then press F6 and post result here
i don’t have a dvd handy it will wait until tomorrow and i will post the speed thanks for your help so far but im toast right now
