So, I ve been trying to burn CD's on any one of my 3 burning drives...

-I have Clean Installed my OS (XPH) about a year and a half ago.
-I have used "some" 3rd party burning software. (ISO's / Rippers / etc) - currently none except a virtual CD drive for ISO playback locally.
-No upper or lower filters on the drive.

So here is the main issue:

-When I try to burn a CD, I get the good ole CD burning Wizard that comes up.
-and then, after giving the disk a name, it starts the burning process.
-Then, not even a second later I get an error.
"CANNOT COMPLETE THE CD BURNING PROCESS... THE DISK YOU ARE USING MAY NO LONGER BE GOOD (kinda like that)

-Anyways: Checked Event Viewer...

Event ID 51 / Error CD-rom drive / IO Paging opp.

I noticed that after this just happened, that I could still burn some small data files (pics) to an allready burnt data CD...

THIS IS WHAT I THINK:

I think this has something to do with Virtual MEM...
It may be because the files I am trying to burn are too large as well (movies - games)

So I think that is all the info I have about this issue so far.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

... patiently waiting

For 18 minutes? :thumbsup:

Trying to troubleshoot the problem I would want to know if it happens with different manufacturers, or different batches of CDs. It could be defective media.

Or perhaps the media you are using is not compatable with the drives?

Have you tried burning software such as NERO? I would want to know if you can burn with NERO or similar software, and if so it would start to point the finger towards MS CD burning software.

Try burning at a slow rate.

It may be because the files I am trying to burn are too large as well

How about experimenting with burning small files first. If that works then burn larger files, etc. See where the 'breaking point' is.

Also, once you receive such a message you usually will have to reboot the computer before being able to burn successfully again. Also, do not try to use the same media again. Just throw it away after receiving such a message.

In general computers need to be kept 'quiet' while burning, as burning is kind of tricky. What else is running on the computer? Turn all other applications off and try again.

Ive tried different speed CDs.. everything from 1X to 48x

CD-r / CD-RW

Also tried changing drive speed 1x 2x 4x 8x.... fastest etc.

I still think that there is more to it then what we know

Keep in mind:

Event ID 51 IO PAGING oppperation error.

I am at work now, so I cannot fully troubleshoot this issue.

I do think trying to load NERO, again, is a good idea.

If anything else crosses your mind, Enthus, let me know.

OK, so here is a little more info on this situation...

I think now that the IMAPI service is not working properly.
-I have it set to automatic and it seems to load on boot.

:Keeping the task manager open; I notice that the service will quit and then I have to go in and start it manually.
-It seems to run for about half a minute and it will quit again

In case of error: 1)restart 2)restart 3) Take no action

I am starting to wonder if this service is broken by a 3r party program.
I do know how to maintain running processes, and I usually only have about 14-20 running processes at a time.
So, I dont think that "something" is causing this, I believe the damage might be done.

Any Ideas on how to replace the service.../???

Thanks for any Ideas from all.

IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service

The IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service manages the creation of CDs through the Image Mastering Applications Programming Interface (IMAPI) COM interface and performs CD-Recordable (CD-R) writes when requested by the user through Windows Explorer, Windows Media® Player (WMP) or third-party applications that use this API. IMAPI allows an application to stage and burn simple audio or data images to CD-R and CD Rewritable (CD-RW) devices. The API supports Redbook audio and data disc formats with both Joliet and ISO 9660. The architecture allows for future expansion of the supported format set.

If the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service stops or if you disable it, your computer will be unable to record CDs with the built-in features of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. If you turn off this service and use a third party CD-RW application, your ability to record CDs will not be affected (if the third-party software does not rely on the service). If this service is started after logon, you must log off of your computer and then log back on to write data to CD-R media with your CD-R device through Windows Explorer. This service is installed by default on Windows XP, but it is not started until a user requests CD-R writing through Windows Explorer. It is installed but disabled by default on Windows Server 2003.

So, I should set it as manuall instead of automatic or else log off and log back on, being Automatic... That might explain the strange behavior of the service.

Thanks for the advise Enthusiast, will try tonite after work.

Yes - MS says that the default for imapi is manual.

PROBLEM SOLVED:

So, one of my burners is toast
The other is now working thanks to NERO
-I guess the good ole Roxio is corrupt.

"Now I can finally back up all my data so I can reinstall Windows"

Thanks for all the help Enthusiast.
