well the alcohol issuse SEEMS as if your image is too large for the blank dvd you are trying to burn to,no? however…
i would try > 1. go through the 10 points listed @ http://www.mrbass.org/dvdnewbie/ [though YOU
may be no newbie, the trouble IS, and may be related to any one ,or all, of the listed items]
2. update the firmware of the drive. check for updates @ http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php
3. try another brand of CD/DvD disc
4. install aspi layer. preferred is v460. get it @ http://www.snapfiles.com/get/aspilayer.html
5. uninstall any software you recently installed
6. for XP or Win2K users, optimise your operating system Services for best system performance. for info
go to http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/service411.htm#Alerter and
7. open taskmanager and shutdown ALL unneeded processes that are running.
8. try another burning software and see if you get a better result. deepburner standard is free. get it @
9. make sure mainboard chipset drivers are up to date. make sure all cables and jumpers connected to
drives are correctly configured with regard to master/slave setup.
10. enter your BIOS and disable anything you don’t use. set memory speeds to default. set cpu speed to
default. if you overclock, DON’T [until you are certain that overclocking is not the cause of the trouble].
11. if you still cannot fix the problem, try the drive in another PC that has NO burning issues…if possible.
if i can think of anything else i’ll be back !
