Failed to initialize the burning engine?

vbimport

#1

Out of the blue I start getting this error message, I can still save movies to HD and burn using ripping software but I bought this program to do both at once. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am currently using version 3098, should I revert to an older version? If yes, can anyone email me a copy? I have DVDFab Platinum! :sad:

Welcome to CDFreaks, try to revert (restore) your system registry to few week back and see if that resolve the issue otherwise the email to DVDFAB customer Service for help.


#3

I have already contacted customer support, they asked me to wait until the new version comes out. This was obviously before this version was released. After installing the new version I am still having the same problems.


#4

What was the error message? send us the burn log and maybe we can figure it out


#5

The error message is the title, failed to initialize burning engine. It also will not recognize either of my DVDRW’s because the burn engine isn’t functioning.


#6

Do you have DVD43 installed or another burning software running in the background?


#7

If not then somehow the VSO engine might have gotten corrupt, I would try uninstalling and do a clean reinstall of FAB


#8

No DVD43, I am using Nero as my burning software now, but it has been installed since before I ever had DVDFab.

Hi BigbadHeels
have you opened Device Manager to see if VSO devices is listed :confused: if it is double click on it to see if “pcouffin device for 32 bit system” is listed and if it is then check
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner(user name)\Application Data
and see if pcouffin is listed there should be 4 entries for it at the bottom
Now check
C:\Windows\system32\Drivers
and see if it is listed there as well

The [U]Application Data [/U] folder is a Hidden folder
