I own a Memorex DVD+/- DLRWL1 F16 drive. Windows XP fully Updated. Updated firmware. All updated programs. Any DVD/CD and any program.
CloneDVD spits out "the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error" after about 60% ripping completion as do all the others.
I recently re-formatted, everything was working fine before I did; just
thought it needed cleaning after 2 years. Well, now I cannot burn dvd's
or cd's with my DVD drive. The catch is, I found out I can
burn cd's using Windows Media Player, but not anything else like
Cdrwin, CloneCD/DVD, DVDShrink or Nero, it spits out an error after the lead in.
I can install programs with no problem with the DVDRW drive.
I checked for and found no Starforce entries on my computer using the Starforce removal tool.
The only other thing after the reformat that I did was install a new IDE controller card because the old one went out when netgears
drivers kept blue-screening my computer. The one problem I have noticed with the controller card is that when it is installed, I cannot boot to cd from either the cd or dvd drive. Other than that, the cdrw works fine and can write/read no problem.
The dvdrw and cdrw drives are on the second IDE channel on the
Motherboard, I have a controller card because the second hard drive is
250 Gb and the motherboard wont recognize it as the correct size.
(A7A266) The controller card does have 2 IDE slots on them, but as I
said, I am using it just for the second larger drive.
The only thing that baffles me is that I can burn
on my DVDRW drive using Windows media player, but nothing else. I
cannot rip or copy anything, and my CDRW drive works fine, yet they
DVDRW and CDRW drives are on the same IDE cable.
