problem finalising cds / dvds

  luddite 20:55 23 Dec 2004

Software Roxio easy cd 6
Operating System Windows XP

The problem is with both my cd and seperate dvd writers.

I have recently developed a problem when burning cds/dvds. When burning disc at once the software hangs for 30 seconds or so before finalising the dvd then shows the disc is complete but it shows there are the bytes remaining 13.1mb on audio cds and 92.7mb dvds. This is a new problem and I previously had no problem burning.

I have carried out a clean install of both Windows and Easy cd, but the problem persists. so I don't think it is a software problem.

I have recently installed a second hard disc and believe this is was the root of the problem. (I have tried disconnecting the second hard disc and the problem persists.)

Therefore I don't think the problem is with the individual components.

any ideas?

Hi, Do the discs you have burnt play in a CD or DVD player?. If so, it is just one of the little glitches you have to live with. cheers, Bill

Could be dirt on lens. I had a similar problem tried to copy files onto CD's & DVD's even though the buning stated complete the disks were not finished, thought I had a load of coasters. Bought a lens cleaning disk and was able to close all disks. Now have several back up disks.

What IDE channels do you have the CD/DVD & hard drives installed.?
