ConvertX just creates blank DVDs

#1

Hi guys, I’m new here and new to burning on DVD’s.

I’ve been trying to convert and burn an avi file to DVD with ConvertXtoDVD but with no success. The internal drive in the laptop is a ‘Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-850S’ - OS XP MCE SP2. My first attempt produced this error -

20/01/2007 15:29:21 error Write error at 135888 (16) - Code 04 44 00 [HW error, Internal target failure]

I attempted to use the burn feature of the ConvertX program to try the already converted dvd again, the burn process took about half an hour at 2x - so I thought it was maybe working, but it just produced a blank disc. (Have been using Verbatim DVD+R’s).

Help would be much appreciated and will provide more info if needs be.

I’m stumped :frowning:

Thanks

That is a writer hardware error and it is possible your writer is failing.
You should try using a different brand/speed/format media, check your writer manufacturers site for a list of recommended media to use and also check if there are any firmware updates available for your Writer.

If you continue to get the same error (Code 04 44 00) then you should contact the writer manufacturer and have the drive checked/tested.
