This dvd burner is my very first dvd burner. I just got it in the mail yesterday (from newegg), first thing I did was update to the latest firemware (nonhacked) BS0K.
I used a previous version of nero; don’t remember what version number but it was nero 6. I didn’t uninstall to remove any of the previous settings from my cd burner (didn’t think about it).
But I used the nero dvd template for DVD-ROM (ISO). I selected my the files I wanted to burn and things looked good for about a minute or so. Once it got to 5% it gave me a blue screen of death. Following error… Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area stop: 0x0000050 (0xef0464d2, 0x00000001, 0x8054105b, 0x00000002)…I reboot, and do a simulation burn, it crashes again. Shutdown, and I put my burner on slave, thinking maybe that might help even though it’s the only thing connected to that IDE connector.
I uninstall nero and I install a fresh new updated version and try again on simulation. Crashes. But the funny thing now is, I don’t have any type of error that is shown on the blue screen of death. It does mention something about disc space, and when I saw that I edited the settings on nero to move the cache to a drive with more disc space. It still gives me the bluescreen of death.
I also tried to watch a dvd in WinDVD and it doesn’t even read the disc, it tries but it just stalls the program and I gotta exit the disc and ctrl,alt,del the program away. Powerdvd works fine.
So I was wondering if anyone knows whats wrong.
Should I reinstall windows xp pro (which I’ve been thinkin about doing anyway).
How much space should I have if I want to burn a dvd.
Is it bad hardware?
Bad Media (legacy 4.7 DVD-R 4x), I’m not rich so I can’t just go and buy media to test.
Bad IDE cables?
P.S. I have 1.2 gigs of ram.
