Problem with Sony dvd architect 3.0


I’m not sure if this thread should be on LG forum or here, but moderator
can move this there if needed.

to be exact, problem is with Sony dvd architect 3.0b (build 123) version.

I’ve made my dvd authoring (project with few submenus etc. video and photo stuff) and prepare part was succesfull.

after starting burning dvd, there were problems.

first time I got over 3gb of 3.7gb project burned and
then program announced this:

[B]The command failed due to a IOCTL error. Your
interface or drive may be configured incorrectly.

‘USB/1394 Devices’-(4)
-‘HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-5163D A102’-(0)
Module sfmmcx.cpp Line 1795

Status: ff000000
Command: 2a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00
Sense: 05 24 00
Info: 00 00 00 00

Extra: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00


then I thought that problem was with my dvd drive,
because I had earlier problems with it and nero.

I updated firmware version to newer one, A105 (old version was A102).

dvd drive model is LG GSA-5163D.

ok. after this burning with Nero was ok,

I had still same problems with Sony dvd architect,
new burning attempt stopped after few megabytes…

and I got exactly same error message.

anyone with ideas what to do next?

my project is done with this software and
I think it’s quite difficult to transfer it
to any other software.

and I’ve already 2 ‘dead’ MAXELL dvd-r discs,
I don’t want to burn more with same ‘null’ results.


ok. I found this (using google with ‘Module sfmmcx.cpp Line 1795’ :stuck_out_tongue: ) :

it seems the problem is with Sony software updates and possibly my drive is not compatible with Architect software.

solution is to burn prepared audio/video folders with some other software, because I don’t need Architect for this part.

can someone recommend any other software for doing this?


I’ve 6.0.16 express version of it, atleast burning normal
dvd-r’s works fine with it (NOW! after firmware update :D)…


I am having the same problem?

I had the same issue. Use sony dvd+R!!!

Its the disc you are using. Use Sony DVD+R.
