XP keeps shutting down in the middle of burning DVD.When the system restarts it creates error report to send to microsoft which I do but it comes back saying it happened because of a driver problems but I cannot find any conflicts.Anyone any ideas on how to rectify this problem.

try removeing your dvd burner in device manager.Reboot and let windows re-install it

The only thing I have done recently is install a new dvd rom combo as my master drive because the old one failed.It uses the same driver as my dvd burner, could this be the problem.

You could try, as advised, to Remove the rewriter and then let Windows Find New Hardware and install the basic Windows CDROM driver.

However, do you have any power saving management or s screensaver enabled?

This could be cutting in if you are taking some time to burn a disk.

Try moving the mouse slightly every 10 minutes or so until the burn is completed (i.e. in between your power management settings).

you could have a conflict but it should show up in device manager.Try disconnecting your new combo drive and burning then you will know if it is causing the problem

You could pop over and find a similar fix for me? :-)


Although not an identical problem(different software)it DOES relate to DVD's.My system keeps crashing during the rendering and I get the "Windows has recovered from a serious error" report going to M$ and according to M$ it was a device driver.I am using TMPGenC to render a video file,it has rendered several Gbs of video prior to this particular one without a hitch.I am just about to retransfer the video onto the PC,to eliminate any chance that this is the problem(although,when I transfered it 1st time,it seems to have completely missed a few seconds from where Dixons shop staff switched the camera onto record when I took the camera in with a fault)


Ive.Are you certain its not heat related,burning can be a load on the system.It could also be a resource issue/RAM problem.The RAM can check out as fine(with a RAM tester app)but under sustained load,the OS is struggling with the burning app for resources(RAM)
