Preferred Solution: CD/DVD drives problem to burn

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to the forums yebo.
What software are you using to burn with?

Using Windows XP with SP3

I have two CD drives.


Neither one of these drives allow me to burn a CD
I have attempted to use Windows XP Roxio method as well as Nero

Under Nero, I receive the following errors:

Session Fixation error
NEC DVD-RW ND 1300A could not preform fixation
Burn process [email protected] (2400KB/s)
Power calibration error
invalid write state
could not perform end track

Is it possible that there could be wrong information in my registry under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives?

I read the info from Microsoft Support and under Value Data I am not sure whether it should have a 1 pr 2 in that box. Is there any downloads that could assist me.
Really frustrated.

Thanks, hope I gave you enough information.

Both are suddenly getting error messages. This is occuring only since have been burning audio files.

Some messages are:

-Initial audio write failed

-Second attempt Code 05 2c 03 [Illegal request, program area is not empy]

- Can't send audio cue sheet 1st try Code 05 2c 03 [Illegal request, program area is not empy]

Tried numerous programmes: Copy to DVD - Copy audio files, Media player, I think it uses Roxio.

A:System image burn to external drive or burn to cds? Question in messag

Hello Trent,

It would be best to create the system image on a HDD instead. A CD/DVD is less reliable to restore from, and more expensive for how many you would need.

You can do what's in the NOTE box at the top of the tutorial below to keep multiple copies of system images on the same HDD. This way you can create a system image backup that you know is clean, rename the backup folder to keep it so new system images will not replace it. Just repeat this every so often to have a updated system image that you know is clean.

While trying to burn a video DVD I got a pop-up window the message "Operating System Error Gdiplus::status = 0x80040217 -13", the program stops and the DVD is ejected. I think this occurs just before the program is ready to write on the DVD. I reinstalled the program and the same thing occurs.

I am running Windows XP Media Center with SP2. The DVD burning program is Sonic's MyDVD Plus 6.2.0 that came with the computer and has been working properly.

i have a few small video files on my HD & when i try to copy them to a cd (i used burn4free & real player) only the largest file seems to get copied! The total size is only 125 MB so plenty space. I am using a cd-rw.

A:cd burn problem?

I am not familiar with Burn4Free, but why are you using it WITH Real Player (which can also burn) - surely ONE burning program is enough. (I actually used Real Player last night to burn some music files to a CD-RW, which worked OK, but it was only for experiment and I later erased the CD-RW).
I think you might be better off with one of the mainsteam burners such as Nero or Roxio, which often come bundled with CD drive hardware.
I only use CD-RWs which have been formatted with Nero's InCD and can then be used like a large floppy disk so files can be dragged & dropped, or copied, moved, deleted at will.
You don't say if you want to copy your movies for backup purposes or as an alternative means of storage. Either way, assuming you want to keep them, burn to a CD (not RW) and if you use Multisession mode (Nero or Roxio), not Finalize mode, you would be able to add more data later.

A:Dvd burn problem

Hello kail01, Welcome to TSF! :wave;

I am presuming that you have checked your burning software program, by uninstalling and re-installing it.
You might also like to check that the media (the DVD's) are compatible with your Drive.
If after trying this, and it is still not possible to burn DVD's perhaps you might like to also try these two other alternative methods to get your DVD burner working...

Method One: Remove the registry entry

Warning: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system.

Please Note: If you had installed multiple CD-writing software products on your computer, you need to uninstall the software products before you remove the registry keys.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.

3. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

4. On the File menu, click Export.

5. In the File name box, type savedkey, and then click Save.

6. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type UpperFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

Note: If this data type is missing, go to Method 2.

7. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type LowerFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

8. Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Method 2: Replace the existing driver

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. If Control Panel is in Category view, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.

If Control Panel is in Classic view, double-click System.

3. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.

4. Click the drive with the question mark (?) next to it.

5. On the Action menu, click Uninstall. When you are prompted to confirm the removal, click OK.

6. Repeat steps 4 through 5 for any other drives with question marks.

7. On the Action Menu, click Scan for hardware changes.

Close all windows and reboot the computer.

Please give these two methods a try and post back with the results.

Kind Regards,

Not sure if this is posted in the correct forum so I apologize if not. I have an old Acer Aspire windows 98 system that I recently replaced my hard drive and rebuilt the system.

I can play CD's and the computer recolonizes the drive I just can't burn a CD. Do I need new soft ware or will windows 98 not support a DVD?

Hi, not sure if this is software, hardware or whatever but when I try to burn a DVD on my HP Pavilion Slimline system (win 7 home premium 64-bit) after converting to DVD format from a .avi file using ConvertXtoDVD, I get the following error as it starts to burn then spits it out as "operation completed" when clearly it has not even started.....
BURN : Init DVD-R DAO: Can't set write parameters code page Code 05 26 00 [Illegal request, Invalid field in parameter list]
If I take the encoded files (i.e. video TS and audio TS folders) to another machine and select "burn a project already converted" again using ConvertXtoDVD software, it burns the DVD without a problem ?
Any ideas what I am doing wrong - hopefully not a duff DVD drive on a relatively new machine ?

A:DVD burn problem

If you have VIDEO_TS all ready to go, try burning with Imgburn

I never go from conversion directly into a burn no matter what converter I use. I like to get the VIDEO_TS folder first. Even good converters like DVD Flick can have problems if you go directly to a burn. Plus Imgburn is pretty much the standard unless you have some wacho unsupported drive.

Not likely. I've had a bunch of HP PCs and Imgburn only had problems with one burner. And that was fixed when I did a Firmware Update on the burner. Even with the problem burner an old version of Imgburn worked. I just couldn't update to a newer version until I did the firmware update.

It sounds like what you are getting is Power Calibration Error, only it reports it succeeded. Weird!

edit: when I wrote "even good converters like DVD Flick" I wasn't implying ConvertX was bad. I just meant it's a good idea to burn as a separate last step generally. Last time I used ConvertX is was freeware. But I've heard good things about it.

A:can i burn a cd/dvd while i'm defrgmenting a partition from where a want to burn data

I can't say that I've tried that myself. I guess it could be possible that the data could be corrupted if the files that you're burning are being moved at the time, but that chance is pretty low I suppose. Give it a try if you want to, but don't be surprised if everything runs extremely slow, or if the CD ends up having corrupted data. I'd advise either pausing the defrag or just waiting until it finishes.

Then I converted it to avi, which looked fine, but again, it doesn't burn onto the cd.
What should I do?

I've seen this problem posted a couple of times - but no response on how to fix it. After I create a burn list on WMP 11 and hit burn I get a message to install the burner and restart the player. Somehow it is not recognizing the burner. I have tried burning on another software but it is telling me the songs (which I legally purchased from Napster) are not valid music files, even though they play on the computer and have been able to sync to the mp3 player but I can't burn a cd with them due to this "not a valid music file" message. Need help with both of these problems.

A:CD burn problem & IMAPI

Posted yest. for issues with 'can copy CD, but CANNOT burn'. Found a Post on another Forum that said IMAPI causes problems with 3rd party software and so to Disable it. I did. Can now Burn with Real Player again!!

New problem.......Real Player v.10, is all messed-up, corrupted or whatever. Songs say this Title/Author when they're really a totally different one. Have gone thru the 'Search for Media on computer' thing over & over but it doesn't get them right. I'd say maybe 50% are all wrong.

So... added all my music files to Windows Media Player 10. Presto! They are all there CORRECTLY! However, now that I've disabled IMAPI, Windows Media Player will not burn CD's. Keep in mind though that I was having problem burning with WMP10 anyway.

It would go thru like it was burning just fine.....'Inspecting', 'Converting', ' Converted' then 'Closing Disc' upon which immediately got Error message that 'disc might be dirty or try slower speed'. All of which I tried to fix w/ numerous discs, types, speeds, etc. None worked?

**** Does this additional info. help ayone to figure out what could be going wrong with CD burning? Real Player 10 works now, but I really want the correctly named songs and only WMP10 seems to have them. What can I do??? Thanks!!

All of a sudden no matter what cd burn program i use , the Finalizing CD part at the end won't work (has probs) and the cd burn fails. Everything is ok up until the finalize cd part. As mentioned this happens on whatever program i use. Also i have tried various disk types.

I understand that this may be a possible cd drive error but if not , maybe someone out there might know where to look (on my system maybe for possible file errors that could cause this.

My cd rom is absolutely fine for everthing else so i'm not sure why i have this problem.

I will get the brand name soon if needed.

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to create a backup copy of my iTunes library and have hit a snag. I am using a DVD+RW disk and there is already my previous collection on it. i Tunes will not write onto a disk with stuff on it and windows says it cant delete the stuff on the disk because it is read only, ironicly it says just write over the disk and delete the stuff that way.

I have tried:
Setting the iTunes>Edit>Preferances>Advanced>Burning setting to data CD/DVD
Changing the files on the disk by unchecking the read only box but errors appear and it won't do it.

Can anyone recomend a way to override the disk's protection?

I have burned CD's and DVDs before no problem. Now I get a window 'Error - there was a problem burning this disc' after maybe 2 minutes of building the image file. Using the built in burn appl in 7 Pro. (I'll try another appl if I can't solve this.)

DVD +R disc is fine, doesn't begin to even burn. Can't be hardware because it's worked fine before. Can't be intermittent as I haven't removed/touched any internals.

Tried making the pagefile larger, to match ram of 2GB ( min 2048, max 4000). Same. Lots of room on the hard drive. Can't believe it would be because data is 3.64 GB because 7 should just use the hard drive if it runs out of ram.

Thank you in advance.

Definitely try a different burner. ImgBurn or CDBurnerXP (ignore the XP part, it works on Win 7) are both good, free programs.

Thanks in Advance

Make sure you are creating an MP3 disk in Nero.

Also activate "over burn", this will enable a further 3MB or so of disk space on the CD disks which you would not normally have access to.

A:Nero 6 Audio CD Burn Problem

I think the primary question here is: How do they sound? If they sound OK, I don't think it will be a problem. Did you check to make sure the entire thing was there or did you only listen to part of it? Maybe you compressed them to much? Did you try a different CD burning program and see if the same thing happens?

A:I have a problem with nero. Can't burn a big avi file to a dvd

There are plenty of utilities you can use to recompress the avi's. They must be massivly long (or use nil compression) to be so large +4.5GB.

Search for Yasasoft or Cucusoft avi converters. There will be loads of others too. Someone might want to suggest some better ones.

A few days ago was everything ok..I could burn cd-s and dvd-s with nero 7. Now this happens when I insert empty cd-r

and when I wish to burn a dvd+r, nero says that it can not burn dvd+r ...and I use the same empty media like always before.
Burner can read every dvd+r that I put in, but no cd-r..I dont know why?
I was thinking if maybe I did something with settings. I remember I set the settings in nero 7 to default. Is there any way to test my burner (the one in nero is not working for me), so that I will be sure it is damaged and that I didnt change some setting? Will go investigate on internet now..thank you for your help and time

Ripping or burning CDs causes my computer to defrag really bad. The problem got so bad that I had to get Power Defrag to do the job. I can only burn about two CDs before my computer begins to slow down and act weird and I know it's time to defrag again.

The problem might be when I open the Extractor from my desktop. I click on the icon and it takes some time for it to load. So that might when the defraging happens or the burning itself - I'm not sure.

I use Easy CD-DA Extractor on a Windows ME system - soon to be XP.

Any suggestion would be very appreciated.

I have been burning cd's for a week now, and have had several songs sound as if they were not recorded correctly.

When I play the cd in my 2000 honda most songs sound great, but a few are horrible.

I took the cd and put it back in my cd/rm and the same song sounds fine.

I have not used the cd im my car until now, and was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem?

My burner indicates a successful burn after every cd, and after playing the cd in the burner appears OK, I wonder if car cds could be faulty, or not sensing all the tracks I recorded?

Also some songs seem to not be fully recorded.

If nobody has any input, I probably will try the dealer.

Since upgrading to Windows 10, I have been unable to burn iso files to disk, sometimes I get an error message, saying this could be due to disk utility burn speed. Most of the time just a message, an error occurred.
With this same computer, I never had a problem with Windows 8, I also have Linux Mint, dual-booted on this laptop, and it will burn images to disk.
Is there some way to tweak the disk burn utility? Has anyone else experienced this?

A:Problem with Disk Burn Utility

You will have a lot of people offering you their favourite iso image burning programs.
It's up to you to chose which one suits you best.

I personally use Windows USB/DVD Download Tool.

I use it since the early days of Win 7, and I have been using it to burn Win 10 iso to bootable DVDs.
I chose it because of its simplicity. Practically ANYONE can use it without problem.

My problem started because I couldnít get windows media player to see a disk loaded to burn a CD. I thought it was because of my recent upgrade to 11. So I decided to uninstall 11, by going to the add/ remove in control panel, but it instead it said it would go back to 10. When that was complete, I didnít recognize anything. I tried system restore which didnít work. I also couldnít get online. The computer said I needed to register with Microsoft, which I did, but I still could not get online. There are also some things that I simply canít get to. There are things I canít access in the control panel. My display screen doesnít look the same.

I run Windows XP Home
I have a problem whereby if I put in a CD, media player will not play it until I reboot the PC as it doesn't recognise the file. Same problem with the Burner and the floppy drive. If I plug in either one of my flashdrives, even though they are recognised I cannot access the data until I reboot. I decided to take the PC back to the local computer shop where it was born. He couldn't fix it and recommended that the hard drive is reformatted and Windows XP is reinstalled. I'll try this but want to save Express 6, Outlook all my favourites on Explorer. Does anybody think that this is the best way to go and if so, the best way to backup files? I previously had problems importing into Express 6 from my old hard drive and could not retrieve the address book, but managed to import Outlook.

When I go to burn a cd in Nero 5.5, I can't set my burn speed any lower than 8x. I am using Memorex Music cd-r's, and they apparently aren't pleased with being burned at 8x, as they crackle badly on every cd player I try. However, they sound fine at 12x, it's just that most cd players don't want to read them at that speed. My burner is an Artec WRR-4848; I don't know what sets the burn speeds within Nero, if it is related to autodetecting something about the burner, but I checked for firmware updates and I have the newest version. This is all very frustrating, as I wanted to burn cd's as Christmas presents, and it is now February. It has been a struggle all the way, to say the least. I thank you in advance for any help you might offer.

A:(Solved) Burn speed problem in Nero

The burning speeds in Nero are based on the capabilities of your CD-R drive, Nero 5.5.10 allows me to burn at 4x, 8x. 12x, and 16x. My CD-RW drive is a 16x drive, so that makes perfect sense.

FWIW, I think you may have better luck changing the media brand, rather than trying to change the burning speed. I burn my music CD's at 8x and 12x, and they sound fine on any of my CD players.

Hi I'm Floyd and I burned one of my playlist using the Highmat setting in windows media player. I was unhappy with the results, so I tried to burn my playlist using the CD-R and I can no longer download the playlist. My question is did the player save my list in the highmat form of burning and can I reverse this so that I can just burn CD-R. I can't find an "undo format" anywhere in the mediaplayer. Any suggestions/help regarding this would be greatly unappreciated.
P.S. I removed the highmat program from my control panel and the player still will not allow me to record in the CD-R. Thanks ahead

Try updating the firmware:

And go to the motherboard maker and update the chipset driver. That isnít the same as a BIOS flash Ė Iíve never heard of that helping and it is chancy.

There is a possibility the laser is dirty. You could try one of the cleaner CDs or blow some canned air judiciously on the laser/reader.

Clean out your msconfig/startup: and the services if you have XP: And use task manager to shut down all programs before you burn.

I own a Window'sXP computer. I'm still trying to learn how to use my burner that came with the computer. I have corrected the speed to the proper timing . I hit the "burn" tab to start the process ,I'm informed to install a new disc. I have placed a new disc in the tray,but still get the same request! The data is already to go.The songs are installed in the computer . My burn list is ready.What am I missing from this problem that occurs?

After installing XP SP3 in my desktop and in my laptop, I attempted a DVD+RW burn moving files using Windows Explorer and immediately ruined the disk. The disk shows full with only one file of zero bytes labeled Non-Allocatable Space. This file cannot be deleted. I have ruined several disks in ineffective troubleshooting. Both computers exhibit similar characteristics and I cannot erase nor format this disk in either computer. This problem is not evident in writing to a CD-R, it is limited to DVD burning.
Microsoft finally took control of my desktop and worked diligently with the computer for over an hour. Their troubleshooting process included the deletion of Nero and Roxio programs to no avail. The assigned tech finally had to turn it over to Research for further troubleshooting which has not yet happened.
To briefly summarize, I can burn a CD but cannot burn a DVD in either computer. Inputs anyone?

A:Can burn CDs but cannot burn DVDs

Hi Harvey,

Here is a link to help un-install SP3. There have been some issures with SP3 and AMD processors, though you didn't say what you had.

Hope this helps.

Is there a software package, preferably free, that will allow me to burn my digital photographs onto CD/R; CD/RW, add music either from my hard drive or via audio CD, and then allow me to view the finished product on a stand alone DVD player as well as my PC.

I am currently DVD drive on IDE
I am also currently running on a SATA hard drive.

Now I'm trying to add an old IDE Hard drive for secondary storage space.
it is running on the same cable as the DVD drive.

the end on the IDE cable is connected to the DVD and the middle is to the hard drive.

well, it's not detecting both of them.

Now on to the jumpers.

I have tried setting both to masters and slaves. with no success. I have tried setting the DVD as master or HD as master with the same resutls.

but if I jsut connect one of them to the end cable, it works.

what could be the problem? I have only one ISe Controller slot. and i'm using a 80pin cable

ive had my computer for 7 months and yesterday i tried to put a cd in and nothing popped up so i went to my computer and no drives (besides my HDD) were listed. i went to device management and viewed the properties of my dvd drives and for both of then it said the drives were not loaded because they were missing or corrupt. any suggestions.

A:problem with dvd drives

Restart in Safe mode and go into device manager. Uninstall all drives and reboot as normal. If no good I guess the drive is bad.
Things to try if you can - try the drive in another PC
Try another drive in your PC
Try another ribbon cable
As it is < 12 months old, get it replaced under warranty.

I have 2 DVD drives in my computer. Since installing Windows XP
service pack 2, though not necessarily related to it, both drives fail
to recognise the contents of disk. When a disk is inserted the icon in
Windows explorer changes to show there is a disk there but does not
indicate any contents. The run command under the start men cannot find
any files, nor can media player. However, other programmes such as
Nero and Power DVD will acces any disk in the drive. I can burn to a
disk or play a movie.
If the disk is in the drive when I boot up there is no problem and I
can swap disks OK but if there is not disk in the drive at boot up the
only way I can access files under windows explorer is to reboot.

Anyone have any idea what is going on here?

When you instaled the drives, did you go and get the drivers for them from the MFG or did you just expect that Windows already had the drivers for them?
If it was the latter, I'm surprised that you can use those drives at all.
If it was the former, have you checked to see if there's a firmware update available?

A:CD Drives problem

Welcome to TSG.

Check device manager in safe mode and uninstall all instances of your drives. Reboot and Windows will reload them.

I have no idea why Windows would have problems with the drives but they would work in safe mode unless you have installed real mode DOS drivers for them Ė most people donít do that.

Since I installed my cd writer whenever I have a cd in the drive the green light doesnt go off. This happens by both drives. My second problem is that every time i insert a cd it takes like 5- 10 seconds till my computer moves there a way of getting rid of these problems????

A:Problem with my cd drives

Which CD-Writer have you installed? Normally, whenever there is a CD in the drive, the lights will remain on.

Secondly, for that gap of 5-10 seconds, I feel even that is normal, but may be there is some registry tweak to reduce or disable this delay. Instead of fiddling with the registry directly, download X-teq X-Setup from here and see if there is a tweak that can help you.

Have had two CD-ROM drives hooked into a desktop computer for a while but only one seems to be detected.
Physically, they are both on the same ribbon connector running to a single slot on the m/b. Unlike two Hard Drives, one of which is selected as Slave in a similar hook-up, I don't think this can be done with two CD-ROMs.

What would happen if I hooked the second CD-ROM up to the Hard Drive's ribbon? Is this an option?

A:Problem with CD-RW's between DVD+/-RW & DVD+RW & CD-RW drives

DLA is drive letter access for packet writing. Different CD burning utilities use different software for packet writing and can have incompatabilities. To make the CDRW disc compatable with all the PC's you mentioned, your best bet is to install the same identical burning software in all the PC's.
The "Make compat" option in XP and 2000 is used to run older software built for earlier versions of windows. It's not going to help your problem.

Erm... check for them in device manager and then in the BIOS. If they do not show up then try this :

1) Check all connections on them inside the case
2) Reset defaults in the BIOS, it should say at the bottom which 'F' key performs this function.

This is my first time here, so I am hoping to get the help that I need.

I just installed a second hard drive in my HP Pavilion 520N computer. I have a 40gb as the master and an 80gb as the slave, and run XP. I want to use the 40 for all my programs and the 80 for files I want to keep. Now, here is my problem.

For some reason, Windows keeps placing files on my 80gb hard drive when I do not want them there. When I installed Windows XP on the 40, it also placed duplicate files on my 80, such as documents and settings, I386, program files, sysprep, and more. I deleted them since they were duplicates. Now this morning, there is a wutemp folder on my 80.

How can I keep Windows from placing files on my slave hard drive, and why does it do that???

Thanks so much.

A:chkdsk not available for raw drives problem

Good on you for keeping it backed up. You'll likely need it since RAW normally means a failed/failing HD.

Test your HD with maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

To try to pull the partition back use Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard - Video Help.

If disk has failed or PW won't restore it I wouldn't bother with data recovery if you have it backed up. Just replace the HD and copy data onto a new Partition or Volume - Create New

Enter BIOS setup to make sure SMART monitoring is enabled so you get advance notice in the future, or use from the desktop CrystalDiskInfo - Software

Go into the folder (any folder really) and click Tools > Folder Options > General Tab
There's an option that says whether to open a folder in the same window or a new window.

I am experiencing a problem with accessing my floppy drive (A), DVD drive (D) & CDRW drive (E). When I try to access them I get a message "drive is not accessable". I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling the drives through control panel which temporarily solves the problem, however the problem keeps re-accuring. I am running windows XP Home.

Does everything look okay in device manager? You may want to try swapping out the cables. Do you have any extra cd-rom drives lying aorund, if so try swapping that out too. Basically you want to try the smaller things first and work your way up. If none of those work, you may possibly want to reload windows. In your case, it could be many different things. The trial and error method is the best way to narrow down the problem, although it may take awhile.

I have 2 SATA drives. A 500GB (WD on SATA channel 0) and a 100GB (Maxtor on SATA channel 1). The 500GB is my main drive (C:). For some reason, whenever I plug in the 100GB drive and start up my computer it ALWAYS tries to boot from that one (100GB) first and I get a message "The BIOS does not be installed".

My BIOS does not have the option of selecting an SATA drive in the boot order. My boot order is currently 1. SCSI 2. CD-ROM 3. C:. I tried putting C: first in the boot order, but when I did that the computer would give me the same error "The BIOS does not be installed".

I have the Aopen AK86-L motherboard if that helps. What would ya'll recommend?

That sounds impossible... your BIOS should give you the option to boot your SATA drive(s) first. Unless you have it hooked up through a PCI adapter. If that is the case, it should give you an alternate device. i.e. a PCI device. Otherwise, it should give you an option to boot up HDD0 or HDD1. That's how my BIOS reads.

Alternately, check your jumper pins, the actual name of them escapes me at the moment, and see if the 100GB is at master and your 500GB is at slave. If so, reverse them. See what that does for you.

we have a user who has some mapped drives that are having problems. when you try to do something that connects to the network drives it times out. this doesn't happen when you first turn on the PC. after a little bit if you, for instance, go to attach an email on a network drive it takes at least 5 minutes to "reconnect" to the mapped drive. if you try to open the mapped drive from my computer or windows explorer you'll time out. i'm certain it's not the network because a user with the same type of computer is not having this problem. that's why i think it's an xp issue. any ideas???

What server OS are you attatching to? If you're running file and print services for Netware, then try going here for the reason and a fix (update your XP to service pack 1)
Even if you're NOT running fpnw, it's probably a good idea to install the service pack...

I have recently loaded Alcohol 120% version 1.9.2 (build 1705) on my computer and selected creation of three virtual drives. While everything is working normal the virtual drive icons assigned to the virtual drives appear in the explorer view as a square with dots. Additionally now when I install a Kingston USB drive the system assigns a similar icon to it. I am running Win XP Pro with SP 2 and I have tried reloading the software but it didnt help. I also looked for all settings in the software but there are no settings for icons in the explorer view. The system is also configured with a DVD and a CDRW but their icons in the explorer view are ok. Can anybody help me restore the virtual drive icons.
