I have a samsung and an asus dvd writer whenever I try to burn acd from an image …the writing pauses at 7% after that I get the message …device not found …reset occured …this happens for both the devices…
any help would be greatly appreciated

Some more information please. What OS, what brand of blank CD’s, what burn speed, does either drive read CD’s/DVD’s?

Please enable DMA mode for those devices:

try turning your burn speed down see that helps

[B][B]DMA is still off![/B][/B]

DiskPeripheral : ST3160215AS atapi Port 1 ID 0 DMA: Off
CdRomPeripheral : TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223B atapi Port 1 ID 1 DMA: Off

Also, burn slower!
And, disable multisession mode.

You are running Windows XP read the following:

For repeated DMA errors. Windows XP will turn off DMA mode for a device after encountering certain errors during data transfer operations. If more that six DMA transfer timeouts occur, Windows will turn off DMA and use only PIO mode on that device.

In this case, the user cannot turn on DMA for this device. The only option for the user who wants to enable DMA mode is to uninstall and reinstall the device.

Windows XP downgrades the Ultra DMA transfer mode after receiving more than six CRC errors. Whenever possible, the operating system will step down one UDMA mode at a time (from UDMA mode 4 to UDMA mode 3, and so on).

If the mini-IDE driver for the device does not support stepping down transfer modes, or if the device is running UDMA mode 0, Windows XP will step down to PIO mode after encountering six or more CRC errors. In this case, a system reboot should restore the original DMA mode settings.

All CRC and timeout errors are logged in the system event log. These types of errors could be caused by improper mounting or improper cabling (for example, 40-pin instead of 80-pin cable). Or such errors could indicate imminent hardware failure, for example, in a hard drive or chipset.

Maybe that will help you. :bigsmile:

can formatting solve the problem I think my os is not good enough coz when I start the welcome tune is somewhat shabby and recently I had a winhost error…can that be the problem please advise my samsung dvd writer is brand new

Before re-formatting, try the above suggestions…

In this case, the user cannot turn on DMA for this device. The only option for the user who wants to enable DMA mode is to uninstall and reinstall the device.

And replace the 40 pin IDE cable with an 80 pin one…If you haven’t already done so of course…
