Rolling back drivers worked for me. My ASUS K8N4-E Deluxe motherboard has the nForce 4 chipset. When everything was up-to-date (i.e., latest BIOS, latest optical drive firmware, latest motherboard drivers, WinXP SP3, etc.) I would consistently get the 4225 error. I could burn data to DVDs without any problems. I could not print a Lightscribe label using Nero, Lightscribe template labeler, or Surething CD labeler (yes, I was trying Lightscribe media). My drive is LG GH22LS30, by the way.
At the time of this posting, the latest drivers for my MB were the nForce 15.23 drivers. I did not roll back all the way to Windows default. I did, however, roll back the motherboard drivers to nForce version 6.86 which came on the CD included with my motherboard. I did not specifically roll back only SATA drivers, I just reinstalled everything that was on the MB CD. Oddly enough, when I went to NVIDIA’s website to download motherboard drivers, their “recommend which driver I should download tool” recognized that I had version 15.23 installed and it recommended that I install 6.86…weird?
I too, tried all the fixes I could find in these forums and google. I tried uninstalling Pinnacle, stopping potentially conflicting processes, even RMA’d my DVD drive for a replacement. Nothing worked. Without a doubt, rolling back my nForce drivers fixed my issue. I was able to print my first Lightscribe label!
edit: forgot to mention…before i installed the older set of drivers, i went into Windows Device Manager, found the SCSI & RAID controllers, and did a “right-click uninstall”.
