CD-RW Will Not Burn Anything

vbimport

#1

I’ve been having this problem with my Nero CD burner for the past month. It first started with the burner not being able to write audio CDs. The problem then spilled into the burner not being able to write any sort of CD at all. Everytime I try to burn a CD, i get this “Write Error” message and it’s getting really annoying. The buffer state changes like a pendulum, from 34% to 98% and then back.

Write Error

10:48:52 Burn process failed at 32x(4,800 KB/s)

ASPI: Version 4.7
DMA: On
Nero: Version 5.5.9.16
CD: GQ CD 52x
OS: Windows XP Pro

I have 512 MB RAM and plenty of space left on my hard drive. My hard drive is also defragmented. Could anyone one the forums give me some help here?

Please post the full log, stripping just the top two or three lines that contain your name and Nero serial number. The excerpts you’ve given lack technical details of the error encountered as well as various other useful information about drivers and similar.

#3

This is all that I got from the Nero logs when I began burning the CD. If there is another place that I should be accessing the logs from, please tell me and I will post that.


#4

When you’ve finished the burn process, there should be a button at the bottom of the window that allows you to “Save Log…”. Click that and you can save the log as a text file. Cut and paste all but the top two or three lines (which contain your name and Nero serial number) into a reply.

There’s all manner of useful information in the log file apart from the chronology of the burn process.

sounds to me like nero isn’t respounding.
did nero come with your burner as a bundel,
if it didn’t there is your problem.

the version you might be using is a bundle ver.
they only work with the drive they come with.

also check your device manager for problems
with your drive.

                           Good Luck!

The actual error was key 3 (medium error), code 0x0C, qual 0x00 (write error) - not terribly useful, but that’s what the drive said.

Have you got any different media to try? Are you aware of any firmware upgrades for the drive?

There’s a few other things to say. Firstly, you have atapi.sys 5.1.2600.0, which is buggy. There were numerous re-releases of atapi.sys for Windows XP without Service Pack 1 - many to fix quite serious bugs.

Consider seriously installing Service Pack 1. Even then, things aren’t perfect - you need to apply at least one patch for reliable operation with 48 bit LBA hard disks (hard disks over 137GB). At a minimum for 48 bit LBA operation, you need both Service Pack 1 and the patch in Knowledge Base Article 331958 - though you could instead use the patch in article 812415 as it contains an even later version of atapi.sys. You also need BIOS (motherboard BIOS for motherboard controllers, or add-in BIOS for a controller card or controller chip on the motherboard) support for 48 bit LBA operation.

In your particular case, I’d really aim simply to get a later version of atapi.sys on your system - you don’t have anything that needs 48 bit LBA support, so the version of atapi.sys in Service Pack 1 is probably sufficient. I’m not that familiar with the patches available for Windows XP prior to Service Pack 1 - I’d suggest installing Service Pack 1 instead. I’d then make sure you use Windows Update to install any necessary critical updates and security fixes.

Adaptec ASPI is best done away with if possible - it can cause problems and most modern software doesn’t need it. Certainly Nero doesn’t need it. You don’t need to install Nero ASPI separately on Windows XP - as the support code needed already exists in the Operating System. The Nero installer puts the Nero ASPI DLL in the Nero program folder, which is all that’s necessary.

If you need to burn as a non-Administrator using Nero’s ASPI (or use any other software that uses SPTI, sometimes known as DeviceIoControl, as a non-Administrator), install the Nero BurnRights tool as an Administrator, run it, and make the necessary changes.

Information about how I uninstalled Adaptec ASPI can be found in my second post in this thread, and yet more comments about the problems it caused me at the bottom of page 1 of this thread.

I’d also uninstall your current version of Nero, reboot, and install 5.5.10.56, which is the latest version of Nero 5.5. You can get that from ftp://ftp4.nero.com/Nero551056.exe.

However, I think this is probably a drive and/or media issue.

maybe your drive is bad :slight_smile: It took me many dozens of Cd’s to figure that out. But my problem was I could write a CD almost to the end. But once it got past 500megs, the drive failed and gave all kinds of weird errors. Ahead tried to help me, but I read on the net somewhere that some drives fail after a while. It dont fail completely, it just fails near the end because the motor can not keep up. Also the same reason why some writers are sold at lesser speeds even though you can find the very same hardware which does higher speeds. Just like CPU’s where most CPU’s are made the same way but testing shows the speed differences and they sell them at different speeds. Also I had another drive where it would not detect a black CD… It would eject the CD when I inserted it so I could not write to it. But it reads burnt Cd’s just fine.
You should try with another writer first to see where the problem is.
