I have just bought and installed this drive as I thought my old drive was having problems and perhaps on its' way out.
Having installed it and attempted to burn a DVD .iso with ImgBurn, I've found I'm still receiving the same I/O errors I was receiving with my old drive.
Firstly, ImgBurn returns the following errors prior to 'attempting' to burn a DVD:
DeviceIoControl(FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME) Not Supported! - Update your motherboard / IDE drivers!!!
DeviceIoControl(FSCTL_DISMOUNT_VOLUME) Failed! - Reason: The segment is already unlocked.
Also, while attempting the burn, ImgBurn gives multiple instances of the following error:
Failed to Write Sectors 134304 - 134335 - Reason: Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format
Furthermore, the original I/O error is still present:
I have a relatively old MoBo - an MSI 7005 v1 - which has a SiS chipset.
- I've been to the MSI website and it doesn't appear to have any updates for my MoBo that I don't already have installed.
- I've also been to the SiS web site and installed the relative SiS IDE drivers - 'ide240a'
- I've also tried 3 different types of disc too: TY DVD-R's, RiDisk DVD-RW's and TDK DVD-RW's.
After taking these steps, I'm still getting the I/O errors as above.
Any help greatly appreciated as I'm currently unable to use either my old or new drives.
