Task 2 Failed! Error 116

I haven’t burnt a disk since 3.2.1.0 though I have got on my HDD

I have continually updated DVDFab as the betas have been released and now am using 4.0.0.5

I have just recently tried to burn the movies out to disk and have been getting Task_2 Failed! Error=116 on all my movies, this has also been turning my dvd’s into coasters. After 6 dvd coasters its time to post for help

This is the same batch that has been successful previously and the same media type I have been using successfully for the last 3-4 months.

I have tried to go back to 3.2 but the problem happens with that now also.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?

I cant believe that it could be media related as this has never been an issue before now and these TDK +Rs are more expensive that the verbatim that everyone here seems to recommend, (I cant always get Verbatim)

Cheers

116 is a VSO engine burning code, I see you are trying to burn at 16X myself I would try burning around 8X or even 4X with those disk, Also FAB had a problem with those burners but being that you have updated so that shouldn’t be a problem, also is the FW for the burner the latest?

Firmware is latest 1.07 & write speed is set as “Recommended” which was previously ok. I just tried to burn at 4X with same problem.

Does your drive burn at all…I mean with another application outside of Fab?
In your burn log, the code 00 00 00 [B]No sense information[/B] =

“When the error code is all zeros, there are many cases where the error code the drive produces is not received by the application due to an unstable connection or interference from running programs. If the problem is not solved when you try the suggested actions, get your drive checked.”

Have you made any changes to your system? hardware, software, drivers, etc.? Changed or reconfigured cables…are they all ok, connections solid?

The change in burn speed didn’t work.
In Common Preference, make sure your write type is [B]SAO[/B] Try another brand of media (I realize the TDKs have been working ok)
Do you have any RW discs

I’d uninstall your burner from device manager, power down and unplug your burner.
Now power up and down again, then replug your burner and fire it up. XP will reinstall and assign appropriate drivers.

If still no go, consider a complete uninstall of Fan, clean install and perhaps a system restore.

Guys, Thanks for your help.

When I went into device manager to uninstall the drive, the drive was showing up as having an error. lol, so I did the, uninstalled, powered off, unplugged, powered on, powered off, repluged, powered on again and hey presto it worked, I am now happily back to burning @ 16X (the average burn speed is about 13.8 though)

I cant believe I didn’t check ( i did check the connections), feel like a noob. kinda like the mechanic that cant work out why the car wont start only to find out that its out of fuel.

Funny thing is that it would work in Vista to burn files, which is probably why I didn’t notice sooner. Weird. For the record there had been no system changes. Computers are not logical!

Thanks again for helping this tool out guys.
