Burning Problems

Hello Everyone,

I’m new to this Burning thing and I keep on getting either an Read Buffer drops or Buffer Underrun problems. The result is that I’ve made way too many Coasters (As they say :)) specially when I try to burn Audio CD.

Please kindly help me out as to why my CD Writer keeps on making Coasters. I’ve included the Error Log files here ;

Any help that you guys can provide me will be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Off hand, I would say it has something to do with the fact that you don’t have any free system memory (only 17mg). Try booting into safe mode, and see if you can burn then. You don’t have enough free memory, it’s possible that your HD is fragmented, and may not have enough swap space. Before booting to safe mode, make sure you defrag your HD. You really need more system memory too…

In addition to harley’s suggestions , which I totally agree with, you could try another burning app that is considerably smaller than Nero. It’s Burrrn (www.burrrn.net) , it’s free and simple & will handle more file formats than Nero anyway. This may relieve the pressure on your memory.

Thanks guys, I’ll give it a try as you suggested and just for some additional information I’m using the FreeRam XP Pro 1.5 memory management software but do you think that it helps much ?
