CDRecord help?

Post by Who'sThere » Sun Aug 02, 2009 9:16 pm

I have a question that applies to burning Dreamcast discs with cdrecord.

This is a general error message I'll get whenever I attempt to burn with cdrecord through Bootdreams, with or without cdda tracks.

Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this?

I've never seen that error before, can you give more information?

What OS do you have?, What version of BootDreams?, when does the error occur (after selecting the drive)?.

Yes, sorry bout that.

For that test I was using a PC running Windows XP SP3, and the error appears after selecting the drive.

There's a cmd window that flashes on then off about a second later.

I'm not sure about WinXP, but could it have something to do with the ASPI layer?

It could well be an ASPI problem, but like I said, I have not seen that error before (I also use WinXP). Which version of BootDreams are you using?, is this file present? (I'm sure earlier versions did not have this file): C:\BootDreams\tools\wnaspi32.dll.

The ASPI driver used for the latest BootDreams is the free version 0.29.4.10 from Frog Aspi, check to see if that version is present. Do you have any other ASPI drivers installed that could be causing conflict?.

I'm using Bootdreams 1.0.6c, and yes i does have that version packed with it. I don't think I have any conflicting drivers present.

After reading about the ASPI layer, I downloaded and used the ASPI check proggy, and it told me I had no aspi layer installed.

I'm not even sure if the wnaspi32.dll (frogaspi.dll) included with BD has anything to do with this error though.

Anyone else here have an idea as to what's causing this error?

I'm still looking into this error, but without being able to reproduce it (even on a clean XP install), it's proving to be a random hardware/software bug.
