Help! I think I broke my 812s

vbimport

#1

I tried to find answer to my problems in other threads but weren’t able to find it. So if somebody already answered this, please re-direct me there.

I have SOHW 812S dvd burner (firmware US0F). It was working fine at first but then it started to show power callibration error. Somebody told me that I should download and install new firmware (US0Q). So I did. It went well. No trouble at all. But since then I can’t burn dvds. It just says: driver is in use by another application.

So… can somebody please help me since I’m an idiot for this stuff.
Thanx!

@ Ashlar1984
Try deleting the IDE channel in ‘device manager’ that the Liteon resides on and reboot your system. That will allow windows to redetect your drive. Let us know how it goes.

It seems that you have DirectCD or Nero InCD installed. Create and post the log file from Nero Info Tool.

I don’t have InCd nor DirectCD. And I don’t think that external drives connect to IDE channel. Or do they? Since it connects through USB?


#7

You have Sonic MyDVD installed. It is incompatible with Nero. Try to uninstall Sonic. And update Nero to current version 6.6.0.8a. You have the first version of Nero. It is very buggy.


#8

@ Ashlar1984
Right, your external USB unit is NOT connected to an IDE channel…you didn’t mention the ‘usb’ thing before. But, you can choose ‘safely remove (usb) hardware’ from the taskbar and select your 812. Then restart your computer, then plug your USB back in.

I might also recommend using the Nero Clean pack (registry checker and driver clean tool) to deactivate any undesireable drivers. If that faisl you may benefit from doing a complete uninstall of all burning software, including nero using the clean tools and reinstall the latest version of nero.

Poaalpina also makes excellent suggestions


#9

since when? :confused:

in the 18months ive been burning dvds i have had RNDX 4.6 installed and many version of nero with no problems, and have never read a post saying this before. Roxio and nero bad yes, but sonic?


#10

Urgh… I tried all of the above and it still doesn’t work…
It’s driving me insane…


#11

Check the the windows IMAPI service is not running (My Computer/Properties/Services). This stuff here coming with your Sonic software:

#12

@Ashlar1984
What type of external enclosure do you have…Liteon or aftermarket? This thread may interest you. Or this. You may also wish to remove the drive from the enclosure and try the burner attached to your IDE channels to see if it will work. Let us know how it goes.


#13

I’ll try that.

But it was fine before I upgraded firmware. Does it have anything to do with that?


#14

Hey!
I found a solution! Since it didn’t work when I uninstalled Sonic and kept Nero I tried it the other way around. So I uninstalled Nero and installed Sonic. And it worked. I can burn DVDs now.

But thanks guys for trying to help me…
