    My hardware is:

    Asus k8vse- del
    AMD 64-bit
    maxtor Sata 250g drive
    maxtor ata 65g drive

    Think you should alter your setting. To have a hard disk and burner on the same IDE channel is sometimes not good.

    IDE channel 1 and as master - your hard disk with windows
    IDE channel 2 and as master - your burner
    IDE channel 2 and as slave - your DVD-ROM

    OK, I don't know what the problem you're having is, but I noticed a few things:
    and
    If you are trying to burn a movie you can watch in a DVD player, you should turn off multisession and tell it to finalize. That other part with all the numbers tells me your burner doesn't like your media. Try different discs.

    Thank you guys,

    I will change the burner to a slave and see if it works. As far as the media, i have tried everything and that is why i think that it might be my burner. I have tried TDK- Ritek- JVC- Maxell- Memorex.

    Actually, I just read that it might be the packet writing software that's causing the problem. Try uninstalling InCD through Control Panel/Add/Remove Programs. You'll never use it anyway.

    This has the smell of a hardware challenge.

    yeah, I noticed that too, but thought it was probably media also.

    Does anyone think that it could be my Sata controller? I am using an onboard controller. Although it is not the encoding that i am having a problem with it is the burning process??

    This message was there before. I'm no expert but I think this sounds like a Burner problem. Focus and tracking are related to the laser itself.

    hi

    firstly, you ,had this

    === Scsi-Device-Map ===
    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y060L0 atapi Port 0 ID 1 DMA: On
    CdRomPeripheral : SONY DVD RW DRU-530A atapi Port 1 ID 0 DMA: On
    CdRomPeripheral : TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-R1002 atapi Port 1 ID 1 DMA: On
    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y250M0 YAR5 viasraid Port 2 ID 2 DMA: Off

    then you got this?

    === Scsi-Device-Map ===
    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y060L0 atapi Port 0 ID 1 DMA: On
    CdRomPeripheral : SONY DVD RW DRU-530A atapi Port 1 ID 1 DMA: On
    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y250M0 YAR5 viasraid Port 2 ID 0 DMA: Off
    OtherPeripheral : Promise RAID Console 1.00 fasttx2k Port 3 ID 4 DMA: Off

    firt off they should all be set ON! which is the DMA settings in device manager!

    and what are theses?

    DiskPeripheral : Maxtor 6Y250M0 YAR5 viasraid Port 2 ID 2 DMA: Off

    OtherPeripheral : Promise RAID Console 1.00 fasttx2k Port 3 ID 4 DMA: Off

    you need to sort that lot out first! its a driver issue!

    put both hard drives on 1 ide cable on primary channel as master/slave (change the jumpers on the back of drives to this!)

    put both cd/rom drives on 1 cable on secondary channel as master/slave (change the jumpers on the back of drives to this!)

    =============================================================

    1. Running Programs

    Make sure you quit all running background programs, such as anti-virus software.

    Windows 95 Users
    Use the Ctrl-Alt-Del function to quit all the programs using the Task Manager, EXCEPT for the Explorer, systray, and your recording software

    Windows 98/ME Users
    Select [Start] -> [Run], then input "msconfig". Disable everything under the [Startup] tab, except "system tray'.

    Windows 2000/XP Users
    Open the Task Manager, then select the program/s under the [Application] tab, then click [End Task].

    2. Drive Connection

    Other devices may be interfering with the CD-R/RW drive. Disconnect all other removable devices, then try recording again. If there is still a problem, try the following.

    Optimal Hardware Configuration

    All hard drives are placed on the Primary IDE, check that the drives are correctly set as master/slave. CD-ROM/CD-R/RW drives are placed on the Secondary IDE, set the recording drive as the "master". If you are using a USB or IEEE devices, disconnect them.

    Update your chipset

    Windows 95/98/ME Users
    Right click on [My Computer] and select [Properties] from the menu. Click on [Device Manager], then click to open [Hard Disk Controllers]. You will find: the Primary IDE Channel controller, the Secondary IDE Channel controller and a brand name controller, e.g. Intel, SIS, VIA, etc. The brand name controller is what needs to be updated. Please visit their website to obtain these updates.

    Windows NT/2000/XP Users
    Right click on [My Computer] and select [Properties] from the menu. Click [Device Manager] on the [Hardware] tab, then click to open the [IDE ATA/ATAPI (hard disk) controllers] section. You will find: the Primary IDE Channel controller, Secondary IDE Channel controller, and a brand name controller, e.g. Intel, SIS, VIA, etc. The brand name controller is what needs to be updated. Please visit their website to obtain these updates.

    Configure Windows
    Make sure that your operating system has been fully updated. Visit the Microsoft website to acquire these updates.

    3. ASPI Manager

    Check your ASPI layer configuration. Your recording program is likely to use the standard windows ASPI layer, which has been replaced by another ASPI layer of yet another recording program. Make sure you have the original windows ASPI layer in use and retry. If the problem persists, contact the drive maker.

    4. DMA Settings

    Setting DMA mode:

    Windows 95/98/ME Users

    Right click on [My Computer] and select [Properties] from the menu. Click on [Device Manager], then click on [CD-ROM]. This will expand to show the CD drives on your system. Right click on a drive and select [Properties] from the menu. Click on the [Settings] tab and check that the [DMA] option is enabled. Repeat this procedure for the remaining CD drives.

    Win NT/2000/XP Users

    Right click on [My Computer] and select [Properties] from the menu. Click [Device Manager] on the [Hardware] tab, then click to open the [IDE ATA/ATAPI (hard disk) controllers] section. You will find: the Primary IDE Channel controller, Secondary IDE Channel controller. Complete the following procedure:

    Right click on the Primary IDE controller and select [Properties] from the menu.
    Select the [Advanced Settings] tab. Check that the [Transfer Mode] for both devices is set to [DMA if available].
    Repeat this for Secondary IDE controller.

    Note: In some cases older CD-ROM drives will not support DMA mode. In that case please set both devices to PIO mode.

    5. Disc

    Recording errors often occur when the disc is dirty, or has fingerprints or scratches. If an error occurred during test simulation (before actual recording), clean the disc. If you are getting recording errors, try the following.
    Use a different blank, recordable disc.
    Use a different manufacturer's disc.
    Ensure the disc is clean before recording:
    Remove all fingerprints, dirt, and dust from the shiny side of your disc using a nonabrasive cloth with a mild, nonabrasive soap solution.
    Wipe the disc from the center to the edge of the disc.
    Dry the disc completely.

    Error during file verification
    If an error occurred when the files were being verified, record the same files again using a different disc.

    Read error when copying a disc
    When copying a disc, if an error occurred while reading data from the original disc, the original disc may be scratched or dirty.
    Try cleaning the disc.
    Remove all fingerprints, dirt, and dust from the shiny side of your disc using a nonabrasive cloth with a mild, nonabrasive soap solution.
    Wipe the disc from the center to the edge of the disc.
    Dry the disc completely.
    Try using a different source drive.
    To change the drive you use to read your disc, click the Change button when asked to insert a source disc into your drive tray.
    Select the drive you wish to use from the drop-down menu.
    Insert your disc into the new drive.
    Try using copying the disc using one drive as both the source and destination drive.
    When you use your recorder to both read and write to your disc, B's Recorder GOLD creates an image file of the entire disc to your hard drive and then copies that temporary file onto your blank disc. This can be helpful if the drive you are using to read your original disc is slow or unreliable.

    If the problem persists, contact the drive maker.

    6. Drive

    If you have tried Actions 1 through 5 above, there may be a problem with your drive. Contact the drive maker with details of the error code. If the 5th and 6th digit of the error code is 80 through FF, then the error code is maker unique. The descriptions of these error codes differ depending on the maker.
