I recently purchased a Plextor PX-712A and I’ve been having problems getting it to burn with Pinicle Instant Copy. My previous two Pioneer DVD drives
I recently purchased a Plextor PX-712A and have been unable to get it to burn with Pinicle Instant Copy version 803.032 using Ritek 8X DVD-R media. I’m trying to burn movies that I have backed up with DVDDecrptor. My first attempts resulted in “Access Violation” and fault bucket errors. I changed my RAM on my otherwise stable PC and then I got “Buffer Underrun” errors. Reducing the write speed did not help.
I have a NVidia NForce chipset and I read in the FAQ that the NForce IDE drivers can be a problem. However, I was using the Microsoft version of the NForce IDE drivers. I upgraded to the newest NVidea drivers, version 5.10. and now I get an error at 63% of the total progress that says: “Hardware Error -Complilation size exceeds maximum disc capacity. Please reduce the size of the data to be written.” I can see that the DVD disk is clearly not full. In any case, Intant Copy is supposed to shrink the data so it will fit. Just for the heck of it, I used ShrinkDVD and reduced the size of the movie and tried again tried to burn with Instant Copy and now I am once again getting a Buffer Underun error.
I have a Pioneer 4X burner and also a Pioneer 8X DVD burner and both of these drives do not have any problems burning these same movies with Instant Copy on this same PC uisng the same Ritek 8X media. I had upgraded the firmware of my PX-712A from 1.04 to 1.05 when I first got it. I’m running Windows XP SP2. The PX-712A drive works fine burning CDs and I’ve used it sucessfully with Ghost to burn DVDs. I have not yet tried other software such as PlexTools or Nero and I do not have these installed. I purchased Pinicle Instant Copy and I prefer to use it instead, to both shrink and burn the DVD.
Unfortunately I do not have any other media to try right now other than the Ritek 8X DVD-R. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
