Hi all, I am trying to burn a DVD which I have done many times before on the same equipment. Win10 using imgburn. Getting a message "The semaphore timeout period has expired" which is not something I have seen before or understand, any help please. Had 3 attempts on 3 new disks all failed.
yes and trying to write a 32bit iso for use on another pc but after another go still getting the same message. 4 disks tried now all brand new, it manages to write the finalize on them rendering them useless.
I'm sure the MS would not provide a file for a 32 bit Windows program that can not be written to a disk. DVD disks usually have a 4.7GB capacity anyway. Try writing at a much slower speed. It might work. Also try another disk burner ie CDBurnerXP which despite its name is Win 10 compatible.
If that fails I would guess the DVD Writer has given up all together or is incompatible with the disks you are using.
The writer works OK and the disks are compatible (just tested it with a video clip to be sure) I am using 16x speed Verbatin or Memorex DVD-R disks all new and undamaged. Tried at 4x speed and still the same message appears.
