    Hi!

    My old DVD burner (Sony something or other) recently decided to take a turn for the worse...

    It would allow me to drag and drop files from window to window, then burn them on condition that a blank CD was present. Attempting this with a blank DVD in the drive resulted in:
    PROBLEM COPYING
    Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file. What do you want Windows to do?


    Oh well. Time to load up Nero...

    This time the message was something along the lines of:
    Power Management Failure

    I downloaded something to do with ASPI... =/
    I downloaded the latest drivers for the Sony DVD burner... =/
    I unplugged, took apart, cleaned, assembled, re-fit the burner... =/

    I threw the still unworking drive in the bin.

    After buying a brand new drive I have the EXACT same problem messgage, with the added bonus of:
    Reset Occurred

    The drive works fine in my friends machine.

    Please assist if possible, as I have many photo's of my family to send to my wifes family abroad! (Around 15.7 Gb)

    Thanks!

    Nero has it's own aspi layer. Nero and Windows aspi layers don't play well together. Google for fixes because some of them are complex. Removing all of Nero's stuff to get a clean system is difficult.

    Well, I tried to get hld of fixes, and eventually gave up, transferred my files to my already bursting (and now overflowing) 2nd HD.

    ThenI formatted C:....

    Still having no joy, even though I didn't install Nero...

    The only program I put onto the machine after the install was PaintShopPro.

    I'm not sure if I should start checking cabling in the PC, as I hadn't even opened my machine before the problems started...

    I came across two different forums that said the error 'bus device reset occurred' meant corrupt or incompatable IDE drivers.

    Try updating your IDE drivers from the control panel. Let Windows look for 'better drivers' and go to the chipset maker's site and see if they have anything better.

  5. Correct me if I am wrong....are you using windows drag and drop feature to write? Are not you using any standard CD/DVD writing software? Thats not really a good idea.

    Use CdBurnerXP. This is a freeware and has loads of feature. See if this solves your problem.

    If your problem still persists, the next option will be to upgrade your burner's Firmware.

    dnix71,
    I tried to update the IDE drivers via the control panel, and also by visiting the site of my board manutacturer. Nothing newer than the already installed drivers could be found though.

    src2206,
    Both drag and drop, and Nero refuse to acknowledge the presence of a DVD in the drive. I have visited, downloaded 'cdbxp_setup_4.0.015.277', and it asked me to download and install the .NET framework package... I did this, then tried to install the program. It had the same problem as Nero. Didn't work with a DVD =(

    I thank you all for the help, but I suppose the only solution is to buy a new PC =/

    Depending on the age of your machine, buying a new one may be a bit drastic. After you re-installed Windows, did your burner work with CDRs? Is it just DVDRs you're having problems with?

    Is it the same DVD you are trying to use all the time? It could be a bad disc.

    I'd look into imgburn, it can burn many things to DVD or CD if you practice. Me, I never use the drag and drop in Windows.

  9. Hello Aeoni

    Can you see your IDE burner in the Windows Devide Manager window?

    Snakebyte1,
    My machine is between 1 and 5 years old, depending on the part you look at It's been built from the remains of my old computers, and has never let me down, other than this sudden hatred of DVD's! It works perfectly, and very quickly with a normal CDr - I have used 4 different types of DVD now, from Maxel, to a shops own-brand. Nothing works.

    Classfour,
    After installation, I was presented with:
    ATAPI DVD A DH20A3P XP5T (ATA)
    Current Profile: DVD-R

    Disc Information:
    Status: Empty
    Erasable: No
    Free Sectors: 2,297,888
    Free Space: 4,706,074,624 bytes
    Free Time: 510:40:38 (MM:SS:FF)
    Supported Write Speeds: 4x, 6x, 8x

    Pre-recorded Information:
    Manufacturer ID: UME01

    Physical Format Information (Last Recorded):
    Book Type: DVD-R
    Part Version: 5
    Disc Size: 120mm
    Maximum Read Rate: Not Specified
    Number of Layers: 1
    Track Path: Parallel Track Path (PTP)
    Linear Density: 0.267 um/bit
    Track Density: 0.74 um/track
    First Physical Sector of Data Area: 196,608
    Last Physical Sector of Data Area: 0
    Last Physical Sector in Layer 0: 0

    To me, it shows that the PC does acknowledge the presence of a DVD drive...?

    (Although this seems like an interesting program, It will not allow me to select my pictures, as it says: Unsupported File Type ...?

    src2206,
    In the section labelled 'IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers' I see :
    Intel(R)82801DB Ultra ADA storage controller - 24CB
    Primary IDE Channel
    Secondary IDE Channel
    (I have checked for drivers for these devices, and none can be found newer than the ones installed.)

    In the section labelled 'DVD/CD ROM drives' I see :
    ATAPI DVD A DH20A3P
    (This is a brand new, out-of-the-box drive, which works perfectly on other machines.)

    On another note, it DOES allow me to watch a film, or play a game from DVD...
    I have also bought a new ribbon cable, under advise from an IT member at work. No change..
