DVDFAB error 122

I purchased DVDFAB Gold two days ago and immediately got the CSS protection error. I downloaded the css fix from this forum and tried to copy “Ghost Town” again and then got: Task_2 failed (error=122). I feel like I wasted my money now. I’m not super savy and just wanted to be able to copy my DVD’s. Can anyone help out?

try a clean uninstall using the guide below and reinstall, also make sure you download from dvdfab.com
and set the burn speed at 8x

I went to dvdfab.net and downloaded the newest version and tried to copy again but got the css protection error again. I think the instructions in your uninstall guide is way to complicated for me. I know nothing about the registry.

Like I said in my other post/reply, you need to download from [B]dvdfab.com[/B]

I went to dvdfab.com and downloaded again, tried to recopy Ghost Town and got the Task_2 failed Error=122 again. I’m on a Dell XPS running XP by burner is a TSST corp DVD+RW TS-H553A. Here is the log for today.

Please reset your drive to DMA mode
go into common settings --> General and click on the RESET DMA button

Okay this will show my ignorance but where is the “common settings”?

When you open DVDFab look at the top right on the titlebar you will see a check mark, click on that to open common settings then on the left side click on General… the Reset DMA button will be found at the bottom :wink:

I read your “checking DMA status” and followed it but under my device manager I don’t have an option IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.

Thank you. I will try to copy the dvd again.

[B]2009-01-23 16:37:08 Error WRITE FAILED[/B]:[B] Can’t find write strategy at sector 16[/B]

it could be the blank media you are using, and the drive is having trouble understanding the write strategy of the disc you are using.

Try using Verbatim brand blank media

I reset the DMA and tried to recopy but still got the same error. I’ll go out tomorrow and buy some verbatim disks and try again. Here is the error log anyway. Thanks for your help…
