Nero - more fixation problems!

After yesterday's message to this forum about a Fixation Problem error notice, it was suggested that I reduce the spead of recording. This worked for ONE disk. Then the next attempt failed.

Today I tried again and successfully made one copy, before the next attempt failed. The next attempt was successful and the NEXT attempt failed. The disks are Datasafe 52x speed. I am copying at 16x.

Any ideas on what is happening? The log file says (among other things) something about 'logical unit not ready, operation in progress'. I haven't any other obvious programs running. My pc is windows xp. Why should alternate disks 'work'?

The end of the log file reads:

Are you sure that's the right link?

Rather a lot of reading here but it might help; click here

Use some RW discs for experimentation, might save some of your good quality discs


Has it worked fine until recently?

Check the drive with Nero CD/DVD speed, should be amongst your start menu shortcuts, otherwise get it here click here

  brundle 17:26 18 Oct 07

To answer the question from the other thread; Personally I never go by the speed on the disc, you can get cheap plain silver ones that are rated at 52x, but I doubt many attempts at that speed would succeed. Get decent discs, burn at low speeds or very low speeds if you are using external hardware. I'd rather wait 5 minutes to burn a working CD than 1 minute for a non-working one.

Lots of people seem to recommend the Taiyo Yuden discs.

Many thanks, Brundle, I'm working through it.

I have the 'lead' connected to the computer via one of these adaptors. I'll try connecting it directley into the USB plug.

I notice one line says

I don't know what that means!

It just may be that the pc should be restarted before every 'record'! Yes, I have DMA enabled.

The trouble is that I have only one more disk to record and then I shouldn't use it again for two or more months. Every time there seems to be a different problem!

Press on.............

Re the drivers: the log says that I have:

This doesn't look quite right.

I have updated Nero 6 6.1.15a to 15d, so presumably the drivers have updated. I'll try again tomorrow and report back.

  sheila.weston 22:28 19 Oct 07

Success! Although I have printed only one disk - 'datasafe' again. Also, I used a Pakard Bell CD rewritable. The recording speed was automatically set at 10x, I think.

Thank you for the link, Brundle - it is a very useful page. I'll give Taiyo Yuden discs a try next time I want some.

I'll mark this thread as resolved until next time!!

Thank you, all.
