I'm running Windows XP Pro and a couple of weeks ago I installed Roxio Creator 2009 Ultimate. It worked very well with my Optiarc DVD+-R/RW/RAM 18x SATA BL OEM AD-7170S drive until yesterday and now it will no longer burn any DVDs. I've tried with both Datawrite and Verbatim media, but the burning always fails and I get the following errors:

Sense: 02 ASC: 04 ASCQ: 08 (Command 00)
pxc25pm.dll: 2.50.0002
pxdrv.dll: 1.02.34a
pxwma.dll: 1, 0, 0, 3

Please could someone suggest how I can stop this from happening?

Try uninstalling the program...then reinstall it?

Thanks for the advice, but that didn't help. I tried doing a registry scan and defrag and now it works again.

Could have been the defrag that helped. Depending on the amount of memory on your computer the program will use virtual memory (hard disk space) to store files while it writes them to the DVD if you drive is severely fragmented it could cause errors in the DVD creation.
Thanks for posting your solution. :thumbsup:
