#1

I have a Dell computer and have been having problems burning dvd’s lately. I am currently using DVDFab 5.1.0.0. After reading, the second phase starts then tells me it failed to burn. Error code 122. I am in dma mode. After trying to read threads, still am not am not able to fix the problem. Not sure what info I need to provide, can anyone please help?

Please post a burn log, it will contain information that may help. The log is named [B]dvdfab_burn_vso.log[/B] (if that is the burning engine you have selected). Use windows search function to find it and Notepad to open it. You can then copy and paste the entries that relate to the failures into a post. That error code is not on the publicly available list but I have seen it reported before by others.

The DVD8601 is a very old (2004) drive. It may need a firmware update, or it may be just worn out. Your firmware version is KD10, see if you can find anything newer. Try reducing the burn speed to 8X. Google DVD8601 for more information on crossflashing the firmware (may be the only way to get an update).
