Fixation Error - Log Included

Hi all, I have been reading your forums and you seem to be very helpful, so I thought I’d give this a shot!

I am getting the nagging Fixation Error. I am just burning CDs with folders of MP3s on them (using the MP3 CD option in Nero). The problem usually hits around the 5% - 15% mark.

I believe everything you need to know is in the Log file, but the basics are:

  • Windows XP Pro SP2
  • Nero 6
  • Plextor DVD/CD Burner (internal)
  • Using Imation media
