Hello fellow freaks,
Hope you can help me trouble shoot my malfunctional DVD burner. Here's the problem. Was burning ok but recently tried to burn a video file and kept getting " Bad Media" try again errors. After trying several burn programs and making a dozen drink coasters I opened XP's event viewer and found the follwing. I/O-WARNING-PAGING-FAILURE An input/output I/O request to memory mapping file failed operation and retired., Event properties showed the EVENT ID 51 CDROM., ERROR, The device, Devise\SCSI
videsm1 did not respond within time out. (note: My CD/ROM device's list in Device Manager under SCSI due to my Chaintech Zenith CTR-7NJS MB ( RAID 0strip1) that use's Promise Fastrack. I'm told this is normal) Anyway's my Plextor plays DVD's ok but as of recent will no longer burn CD nor DVD no matter the brand of media used. Plextor seems to initialize the media, diagnosic light blinks yellow upon eject command, go's gree for a min. then blinks yellow again, error comes up, Disk can not Finalize. I've just created another coaster!
That's all I know right now but will update with more info as I discover it. ANY HELP OR DIRECTION YOU KIND FOLKS CAN PROVIDE WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!
