CD / DVD Burner problems

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by Ragin Cajun, Apr 5, 2010.

  1. Some time ago my CD burner would burp about 20% into burning a CD.

    Now, my DVD burner does the same!

    Am running XP on a Dell Dimension 9200. The software is Roxio 2.4.32a.

    The message at failure is "there was a problem writing to the disk". "Recording error: Recording errors often occur when the media contains dirt, fingerprints, or scratches." But the disks are clean, fresh, unused, etc.

    Even tried a DVD, same thing except got abut 1/3 into the burn and took forever to fail to burn.

    A cleaning disk did not help.

    After closing the software I also got a "mediahub.exe" application error and "Microsoft Visual C++ runtime library error" But I have been getting these on closing since day one.

    Part of my back-up routine is to DVD so the situation is serious now!

    Any trouble shooting suggestions?

    Try burning with this:

    (it's free)

    if it works, then the problem is with your Roxio application, if it doesn't, it could be hardware related.

  3. THANKS!!!

    That did it. Will completely remove Roxio now.
