DVD-RW Drive Not Letting Me Open .exe files

  Da-B-Man 02:15 29 Jan 2006

I have the latest DVD version of the PC Advisor DVD. i recently installed a new Pioneer 110D drive into my computer set as a Master ( My CDRW is a slave drive).
Things are tip top and it copies my back up data perfectly however when opening .exe files on a DVD i get the error messege:

"Only Part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed"

On several occasions it says :

"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006)Click oK to terminate the program"

i know this isnt a DVD disc problem as i have tried openining a .exe file from my other CDRW drive and it opens and runs.

If anyone has any suggestions please help me out.

What happens if you copy the files in question to you r HD then double click them?

it gives me the response:

"cannot copy, the request could not be performed because of an I/O error"

some .exe files copy but when i double click them it says "IconPackager has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Sounds like your DVD drive is faulty, or your power supply isn't up to the job.
