DVDFab 5&6 Disc Burning Error: 122

I’ve been having this stupid problem for a while with DVDFab. When I copy a main movie the disc ‘rips’ fine, but then when I insert the blank media I get a Task Failed ERROR:122 message before the disc even begins to burn. This happens 9/10 times that I burn a disc, and every so often the disc will actually burn. Anyone have any idea what is wrong?? I am using Verbatim media, and I have tried updating my drivers for my burner and also uninstalling/reinstalling it. Any ideas?? Help is GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!:sad:

BTW: I am using a SLIMTYPE DVD A DS8AZH burner with the most current firmware.

Below is the burn log from IMGBURN:

This is a very problematic laptop burner that’s not correctly reading your 16x media.

Another thing I noticed:
[B]W 00:53:59 DeviceIoControl(FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME) Failed! - Reason: Access is denied.[/B]

well the laptop is still under warranty at best buy. Do I take it in and complain??

As Dialysis stated this particular one has a bit of a history. One could think about getting a external burner.

I understand that the burner has a history of I guess not being so great. But what I don’t understand is how I was burning dvd’s before with no problems at all, and now all of a sudden I get a error every time. I guess I’ll take it to Best Buy and see what they say. I didn’t buy the stupid geek squad warranty for nothing. Just pissed they will have to keep my laptop for 1-2 weeks :frowning:

Can I also suggest that you get an external burner. I use an acer 5050 aspire laptop. When I started backing up my dvd collection at first I had issues with my laptop. It liked some dvds didn’t like others. I read a few posts and the easiest fix was to just get an external burner. The laptop burners are okay for some things but a good durable external burner is better and less wear and tear on your laptop. I bought a refurbished Pioneer for $40.00 plus tax. I didn’t have to put my laptop in the shop either. Do you really think they will fix the problem. Box stores are like car dealerships like make 100% profit on extended warranties. Save yourself the trouble that I had and by an external burner. :iagree:

Nope… but they can get registration keys/numbers to some software that is on the lappy :eek:

Good point SJ,
You ever work at best buy.:bigsmile:

Exactly. I’ve experienced the same error multiple times now under different hardware and software. The only two constants have been the movie and the media. Are you using DVD+R DL media? What movie??
