Error 122 on version 6.0.1.0

Hello everyone. I am a Newby and kind of technology challenged.

I just upgraded to DVDFab 6.0.1.0 from version 5.2.3.2. I had not had any major problems before. I have been using DVDFab for about a year now with many upgrades.

However with this new version I cannot burn the DVD.

I have tried with Verbatim DVD-R and TDK DVD-R but is doesn’t recognize either one.

I read all the postings for previous versions of error 122, but I’m still not sure what to do. Unfortunatedly I erased the previous version. Is there any way I can go back to it? I tried a system restore but it did not work.

Any help is appreciated. Here’s the log of the last failures:

Let me know what other information I should provide

Hi nmaria and welcome,

Hopefully, this will be quick and easy. Windows has reduced your transfer mode from DMA to PIO. This results in a serious degradation of rate of data transfer and errors such as you describe.

2009-05-29 22:49:44 Info PIO Mode

In [B]Fab > Common Settings > General[/B]…
click on the [B]Reset DMA [/B]button.

If this doesn’t do it, please click on the Reset DMA link in my sig and run the VBScript file.
The article does an excellent job of explaining what happened, why and how to correct it…if you’re interested.

I would also ditch the Ritek media…they are marginal at best.
Go back to the verbs which are solid, quality media.
Taiyo Yuden is an excellent choice for media (my personal favorite is YUDEN000 T02), but TY’s are only available online for most of the world.

Oh and btw, you did an excellent job of describing the problem and kudos for posting the burn log without being prompted.
I wish everyone would follow your lead.

Please let us know…

Dear Maineman

Thank you so much for your help.

I tried the first solution you gave of resetting DMA from DVDFab and it worked as far as the resetting, but it still won’t burn the DVD.

I noticed two things: I have been burning DVDs in PIO since the beginning I guess, I just went back to look at the problem log and it always said PIO. I guess it was very slow, but it worked.

I tried burning the files with Nero, and it says the DVD has 4300 Mb and the movie has 4301. Could it be that this new version is not compressing the files as well?

I tried customizing the movie to improve the quality and perhaps compression but that did not work either.

I also noticed my computer has 2 Primary Channel folders and no secondary… I don’t know if that’s how it should be but I’m mentioning it just in case.

Interesting reading, I did not know using bad media could do all that.

Anyway, here’s the latest log, it’s in DMA and I’m using Verbatim

Again, thanks for your help

try increasing the burn speed to 8x

I don’t see that it is giving me the option to change the speed:

under Common settings - DVD to DVD it only shows “split” or “customize”, it doesn’t show “write”, which is ,where I think, the speed is changed.

But if it is not burning at all, how would it help to change the speed?

With DVDFab opened look at the upper right corner you will see a check mark on the title bar click on it to open common settings then on the left side you will see the word “Write” clicking on it will open the settings page for the write process, and you will see a drop down window where you can change the burn speed


sorry, I found the option to change the speed.

I’ll try it and see what happens

I changed the speed to 8x but I got a warning screen. I pressed ok and I guess it reverted back to 2x

Again it failed burning.

I tried one more time, and when I got the warning window of “Select Write speed” it only had recomended, slowest or fastest. I chose “fastest”. This time it took a little longer to fail but it failed again.
