Problem with Nero and CDRW Drive!

Hello all,

I’ve having a problem with my CDRW Drive and NERO. I have a norcent CDRW Drive as seen here installed into a USB1.1 external case as seen here . Whenever I try to burn with nero I get the following errors:

  1. Problem with power colabiration
  2. Something about Fixation
  3. The scsi/ide failer again.
  4. Something about cant find end of disc ???

is anyone able to help please? I’ve upgraded the software, reinstalled the drive, drivers etc etc. I’ve been told you may be able to answer my question. Ive been told also that it may be a problem with the drive lazer???

Hi, is there any one available to answer me???

USB drives are not noted for being problem-free. The easiest way to diagnose the drive is to remove it from it’s external enclosure and install it in the case on IDE.
Barring that:

  1. has the drive EVER worked in it’s current set-up?
  2. Have you made any changes to software or settings?
  3. Is the USB port configured and working normally?
  4. Does the drive work with any other burning software?
  5. Does the drive read data CD’s?

Answers…

1. It does work but will only write aprox 40Mb of any format before kicking the cd out of the drive.
2. Tried loads, still no joy.
3. Yes, Its fine.
4. No, Ive tried 3 different software types. Nero, Roxio, stomp
5. Yes, it reads ok.

I have an error log and a screen shot but can’t attach it as attachements are not permited ???

Hope that helps.

There’s only one way to separate the potential USB issues, and that’s to install the burner as IDE and see how it behaves.

I can’t as it’s running on a laptop. Ill have to try find someone with a desktop.

Here is the Nero error log.

Does this mean anything to any one???

If you are getting a power calibration error, this is most often caused by unsuitable or bad media.

The other cause for this error is a failure of the burner to be able to correctly calibrate the laser to normal media requirements. This is a hardware failure which sometimes can be corrected by cleaning, but may require replacement of the burner.

Damn! My Fiance’s dad has the same drive and has had no problems writing to the same discs. As I sai it does start to write but kicks out at about 50Mb.

I suspect a rougue .VXD or conflicts with the same. The only problems I’ve had with Nero have been traced to an /iosubsys/ file conflict. Tried ToolTips?

How fast can you pass data over a USB 1.1 bus?

I beleive it’s as follows: USB 1.1 devices are designed to run only up to their maximum of 1.5mbps (low-speed USB 1.1) or 12mbps (full-speed USB 1.1)

That speed is ok for what I want it for. Its only for photos etc. The drive has a 2mb buffer which is normally running at between 90-99%. It will read ok, starts burning ok, then kicks the cd out. Ive tried 3 different types of media which are all the same.

These are the probs I get;


Any ideas???
Also this is my settings if they mean anything?

Grrr…I have never seen these errors but they have to be unique to nero or MMC errors. I know that the PMA can only be used 99 times so if you’ve tried to use a CD-RW 99 times then it’s dead.

“Invalid write state”, I 'd have to check the ECMA docs but it’s late here. Go here and here and look around a bit for your errors

Are you trying to burn the same data every time you get this error?

Also, noticed the file mentioned in screencapture is Thumbs.db.
Thats a system file, could be locked if you have the folder open in thums mode while burning, but guess thats a long shot.

Had a friend which bought my old USB writer, he couldn’t burn the MP3’s he tried, I keept suggesting things to check, finally he told me that he was trying to burn the same files every time he got the error, turned out to be a corrupt MP3 file, so then I asked him to remove that file from compilation, and everything has been fine since.

Many things can go wrong when burning

Nope, tried backing up programs, pics, music. same set of errors. It will burn, just wont finish. TBH, Im stuck now??!!

Brand new discs. Tried both CDR & CDRW!!

Try you drive on another system, or try your fiance’s dad’s drive on your system. Chances are your drive sustained internal injuries to the lens.
