    so i am ripping/copying/burning or whatever you call it, backing up my dvd collection and i have noticed something.

    on imgburn the device buffer bar thing jumps anywhere between 12-100 percent.

    when i first started using imgburn it was full 100 percent device buffer and now it is jumping all over the place.

    what is going on here? is this normal?

    and yes i have ran disk clean up and defrag and still jumping.

    please and thank your

    You could be having issues with your DMA. See if this LINK helps.

    okay should of looked at dma then posted, checked al ide blah blah blah channels and all say dma

    now i was wondering why this is still happening, i have noticed for some reason that my Sonic digital media software burn application is always locking my dvd drive so i ran a program to see what was doing this and found out that a DMASceduler.exe is always locking the drive and i have to end that process before i can write. now knowing this, it was the same time that my device buffer percent bar on imgburn started variate between 12-100 percent.

    any ideas

    please and thank you

    Sonic can take control of your drives and limit or even restrict access to them. I would get rid of Sonic altogether and strictly use ImgBurn.
