Hi, I was getting a blue screen crash after looking at or writing to a DVD and then opening the DVD drive, either
manually after completion of writing/finalisation or when the writer sw automatically ejects the DVD afterwards.
Blue screen with the following message:
STOP 0x0000007E (OXC0000005, OX80694F, ....)
Hard reboot then required.
(The laptop did not crash when the empty DVD/CD drive was opened.)
All diagnostic checks, including extended memory checks, complete successfully.
Have dropped, recreated partition and reinstalled WinXP SP2 and all other software.
I'm running McAfee, and no viruses, etc are reported.
I deinstalled the Sonic DigitalMedia, MyDVD and Cyberlink PowerDVD sw which came bundled with the laptop and installed CDBurnerXP and FooBar2000.
These seem fine, in that I can read from DVDs created using the above removed sw and write/read DVDs created.
The problem is I cannot see the contents of a DVD which was only partially filled and not 'made compatible' using the bundled sw.
I was hoping somebody may be able to help me find some sw which will be able to see the contents a partially filled DVD which has not been finalised.
Alternatively perhaps a recommendation of a better alternative to CDBurnerXP and FooBar2000 ?
Thanks for any help.
