Preferred Solution: PC Reboots When Burning a DVD

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.)

A: PC Reboots When Burning a DVD

hey sam check all the connections to the drive the power and data cable after that if it still does the same try restoring your computer to an earlier stage in system restore points if that fails then try reinstalling the driver for the cd/rom or uninstall it in device manager then reboot the OS should do it for you if it still continues after all this let me know

My PC reboots when I try to burn a CD!

I was told that this might be a power supply problem - I have tried using a separate
power supply unit to power up the CD burner (and another to power up the hard disk
and motherboard) but the problem still persists.

The funny thing is that this does not happen when I burn audio CDs - my PC reboots
only when I attempt to burn data CDs. Problem with the software, perhaps?

My specs -

Win98 SE
AMD K6-2 450Mz
256Mb RAM
ahead NERO 5
LiteON CD burner - 24x

Thanks for any advice given.

I wonder if you gurus can help me. My friend's PC randomly reboots when he is trying to burn a CD/DVD. Some days he can burn a DVD no problem, other days he does the same thing and the PC crashes.

He is running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Also when he runs CHKDSK it shows he has errors on his C: Drive, but when he tries to schedule a fix, on reboot it comes up with an error cannot access direct drive and doesn't perform the CKDSK. Not sure if this is related to the above.

Any help very much appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I have been using Nero Ultra Suite for about a year now without any problems. I just rebuilt my computer with upgraded hard drives and applied Service Pack 2 for XP. I also went to Nero's website and downloaded the latest updates. However, whenever I start Nero Burning ROM (or any other app in the suite), my computer immediately reboots. My computer details are in my profile if that helps. I would greatly appreciate any and all help.

I just built a computer yesterday using a Coolermaster Haf 912 case, Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, AMD Phenom II quad core 955, Crucial Ballistix 4 Gb, WD 1 Tb Scorpio blue hard drive, Cool max 700 watt PSU, DVD drive and Windows 7.

It keeps rebooting and or blue screening. I can't even have it on long enough to download updates and try to update drivers before it crashes. I checked the bios temps and they are 34c and 41c. DDR3 memory is running at 1.5v. I tried reinstalling 7 and the same issues.

It will stay on in safe mode and I also got a Ultimate Boot CD 2010 from a friend and it stays on when I ran that. I don't know too much about the disc so I ran a memtest and it passed. I ran a quick test on the WD diagnostic and that was ok.

Thanks for help in advance.

Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?

A:Nero Burning ROM crashing caused perpetual burning from DVD Drive

Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.
Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.
Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.

When I burn cd/dvds with Windows 7 built in burning software and windows media player all my burns are successful. When I try to use Nero, CD Burner XP or imgburn, it fails. My computer is plenty fast enough(2.8ghz, 4gb ddr2, 250gb sata hd) and I tried reinstalling windows 7 without nero or deamon tools and tested with CD Burner XP, it still failed. I am using Sony blank CD's and also tried a few other name brand. I am burning at the lowest speeds. I purchased a brand new dvd burner and the firmware is up to date. The error I am getting is "Could not write to Disc". It fails randomly anywhere from 3%-30%. Any ideas? Again, windows 7 native burning works fine but other software does not. Same pc, same blanks, same burner, same hardware just different software. Any Ideas at all?

Look in Device Manager. Right click on the burners and see if DMA is enabled. Usually when super slow kicks in it's because somehow this setting gets changed to disabled.

The instructions are for Windows 7 but once you get to Device Manager I'd bet it's the same.

Have been burning CDs through Windows Media Player forever; no problems. Suddenly, when I choose 'Burn CD', nothing happens. No error messages.

BUT, when I choose a previous playlist to burn, it works. The non-burn problem seems limited to only recently downloaded music playlists. These same playlists do play on my computer, so they're obviously recorded and working.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number.

Ok, i'm new to this CD Burning. I have Nero Express, and i'm having a little problem with it.

I've copied an Audio CD to a CD-R, and it plays fine, but there are still space on it, and i wanted to put a MP3 (it converts to CDA really nice also) together with the already burned tracks, but i can't. Everytime i put the same CD, i get the folloqing message:

"This midia cannot be recorded
Please Insert another midia."

(Sorry if it's not right, cuz i translated from portuguese)

Can i do what i want?? How??

Sorry if it is hard to understand, it is hard to explain.

Thank you

A:Audio CD Burning with Nero Burning Rom

You cannot append any audio files to an disc that has been completed. Once a disc is completed it cannot access the remaining space. Especially with Nero Express. Once a disc is burned it is "closed (finalized)."

This is just a simple explanation.

I believe Roxio's Easy cd creator lets you add files to your disc as long as you don't "finalize" it. Until you finalize it you will not be able to listen to the music.

I used my 3rd CD Burner and I put my music files onto the CD-RW. Everytime I finish the disc is ejected and CD Writing Wizard comes on and says I have to finish writing the disc. I put the disc back in and it says it doesn't have enough free space when it does! I see the files inside the CD-RW and I can play it but I have to change them into Windows Media Files. I plays fine too! But when I put it in a BoomBox it keeps saying no disc! I have no idea what's going on!

About three weeks ago I had to reinstall Windows.

I can burn from CD to CD.
It goes through the motion of burning, it shows up that there are tracks on the disc, but when I play it back - there is no sound.

I burned an entire music CD and replayed it with no problems. Is it Kazaa or something else. Are there properties I should be checking... HELP!!!!!

Hi to all,
Here's a strange one, I've just re-formatted my hard drive and re-installed xp ( not the first time, I prefer this to restore ) anyway I've tried to burn three music disc's using new blank cd-r's. I go through all the motions ( using nero 5.5 ) I do my compilation as normal, hit burn and nero " burns " the disc. When I try and play the disk on my walkman I can skip through the track numbers but get no sound. When I check it out on my pc in my computer it says Free space 0 bytes, Total size 0 bytes. I am sure this is not a hardware problem so what else could it be ?

I've been recording sucessfully with the same set up and software in the past, any suggestions welcome and appreciated.

I recently wiped my hdd and reinstalled 2kpro. It installed with no problems. I then installed my ati drivers, no problems. Then my cdcreator 5 platinum - again, no problems. Then I installed my sblive software. After I had installed it, I saw that there was another cd that indicated it was for windows 2000. I ran the setup on that and it uninstalled the "older version of the software" and installed itself. When it was done, the computer went through the usual restart stuff, got past the black screen, went to the windows 2000pro screen, the status bar went to the end, then instead of opening to my desktop, the computer flashes a blue screen without a message and restarts again. It continues to do this. AAAARRRRRGGGGGGG....... Help?????? Rod.

MSINFO32 blames myfault.sys (as does the memory dump) This driver is a component of the Sysinternal's tool NotMyFault Here's a link to a page from the Windows Internals 5th edition that describes this type of crash: Windows? Internals, Fifth Edition > Crash Dump Analysis > Basic Crash Dump Analysis - Pg. 1138: Safari Books Online

I'd suggest that you disable all stuff that you did with NotMyFault and then remove it from your system.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems due to the sptd.sys driver.

FWIW - I've seen a lot of issues with the Asus P5 series of boards. I usually recommend this:
- DO NOT use the AUTO setting for memory. Go to the RAM manufacturer's website and get the recommended settings for the RAM. Then set those settings manually in the BIOS
- one person with a 2009 BIOS has experienced success by updating the BIOS. This is dangerous and one simple mistake can easily damage your motherboard so it won't work. Be VERY, VERY CAREFUL!!!

Well, the OS or hard drive is probably corrupt in some way. Try to reinstall the OS (on boot) and if that doesn't work, try another hard drive. By the way, the GeForce is actually your graphics card and not your motherboard. Hope this solution works out for you.

Have been fighting a DIR-655 that would routinely reboot, really frustrating.
Found a cure that worked for us.
Go to Advanced and then QOS engine, uncheck the automatic uplink speed.
You may have to play with your uplink speed, I currently have mine set to the highest value with no problems.
After several days no reboots.

A:XP Reboots

I don't know for sure what the problem is, but I have ideas.
Have you tried to reinstall Windows XP (again) on the AMD machine?
Because I know XP does look to see if the configurations are the same on your PC. I just ran Office XP and it locked me out because it said there were too many changes, and that I needed to re-activate it. Just a thought, but I really don't have a sure answer.

Its' a HP pavilion 524w, 256 ram, xp home, sp1, amd 1.73 processor. It will run for awhile then reboot itself. I have seen it just running but idle and be ok for a couple hours, then start a program and it reboots. It doesn't just lock up or shutdown...always reboots.

I have several minidump files but can't read them.

So it only reboots after you have logged on to windows?

first if you have the windows xp installation cd I would boot to that and run a CHKDSK /p /r from the revovery console.

If that don't work I would test the power supply

You may want to check the windows hardware compatibility list to make sure your video card(s) are supported

Also upgrade to XP Pro sp3. Better to stay updated with the hardware in your machine.

After working for several hours the Win 7 machine reboots itself. I have never actually seen it happen. I may go away for an hour and come back to find the log-in screen.

This was frustrating when I had to take a trip out of town leaving Teamviewer activated which worked fine the first day but second day my machine was off and unable to make contact.

Originally I thought it was the screensaver app maybe causing the issue but it has rebooted without the screensaver function activated.

Is there a methodology whereby I could self diagnose this problem. Appreciate some suggestions.

My PC reboots automatically, every time appr. 5-10 minutes after I normally boot my PC.

I already checked some threads here. Advise was to check the event log. It doesn't give any problems at the time of the auto-reboot, but a system error at the time I booted the computer after:
Foutcode; 0000009c, parameter1: 00000004, parameter2: 8054d5f0, parameter3: b2000010, parameter4: 00010c0f.

Foutcode means something like error-code (Dutch)

any other advice?

A:PC reboots without any cause

This sort of error is usually very difficult to troubleshoot. It's also an error reported by your CPU to Windows - so Windows usually won't log any information about it. Here's a link to a description: causes are overheating, failed hardware, or overclocking.I would stop any overclocking until the problem is resolved.I would clean out the inside of the case and ensure that all the fans are working correctly.I would disconnect any non-essential hardware to see if that helps to clear up the problem.

60c is very hot and may be causing this however so can your badly overworked under powered power supply 350 watts is to small for your system and is probably over heating, and causing all other components to over heat as they are straining to keep alive while being starved for power.

I"ve had this since christmas, and all of a sudden, it has started rebooting on it's own. I think it has to do w updates. sometimes i can catch it, and postpone it, but never put it on hold indefinitely. othertimes, I dont get there in time, and I lose all my pages, and have to wait for extended periods of time (on my "Amish Dial up" ) for the pages to reload on connection. Always losing several pages. how do i stop this? I don't necessarly WANT all those updates. some are messing up the pc, I'm sure of it. it's a laptop.

Yesterday my Pc began to reboot itself quite a bit. So I started with the basics,
-tried another PSU
-disconnected everything and reconnected it
-clean for dust
-re-seated memory
-tried a different CPU/CPU Fan (both)

What it does is boot up login in to windows and sits for about 20 secs. Then shuts itself down. It seems to "click" when it turns off but im not sure if thats just the PSU or if its the CPU. Specs are-
HP d530c Desktop
2.66 gig intel
240 Watt PSU
1 gig ram ddr (4 256)
AtI Radeon 9800 XT
40 gig HD 7200
80 HD 7200
not sure what the Socket # is....or motherboard type.

Any help would be great!!! thanks!

My spare computer with WinXP has worked fine for about 18 months. Today when I tried it it kept rebooting itself. If I tried any of the other modes (safe mode, command prompt mode etc.) it just goes and reboots again. The blue screen of death flashes on very briefly after the WinXP splash screen shows then the system goes to reboot. I was able to take a pic of the blue error message.
I have made no hardware changes nor installed any software recently. I use AVG antivirus and various spy killers and am careful when online.
System is a Wintergreen P4 2.53 w/1gig ram.

I will enter my password, it starts Windows okay, and wants to send Microsoft the "serious problem" message, which I let it do.

About a month ago I purchased two GB kits of RAM Each kit came with two GB PC DDR PC - low density chips Once I recieved the two GB kits I installed them into my computer After installing the RAM I turned on my PC and my due to PC RAM reboots OS began to start up Once Windows Vista started up I went to Control Panel then to System to make sure I had the right amount of PC reboots due to RAM memory PC reboots due to RAM GB in total I checked and noticed that only GB was showing At first I didn t understand why there was only GB rather than GB So I shutdown my computer and took out all of the chips then put them back in I turned on my computer and checked once more but there was still only GB showing I was confused I tried once more I shutdown my computer took out all of the chips but this time when trying to install the RAM I struggled a bit I managed to get them in PC reboots due to RAM however when I turned on my computer instead of getting the Dell boot screen as I usually do before Windows starts up I got a black screen with white letters and numbers on the top left corner I can t remember exactly what it said but I remember seeing DDR some where inbetween Everytime I try pressing Enter or any other key on my keyboard nothing happens I turned off the computer and powered it back on but got the same message I turned off my computer again then took out the RAM once more to check if there were any visible scratches or cracks on any of the chips but nothing This time instead of putting all of the chips back into the computer I decided to put just one set GB of RAM After putting the GB of RAM I turned on the computer and got the same black screen At that point I was convinced that the RAM was damaged due to my struggling when trying to install it I took out the first set of RAM then tried the second This time the computer booted up and Windows Vista began to start I went to Control Panel then to System to see how much RAM was showing up it showed GB I said to myself quot Okay then I must of just damaged the other set of chips quot I accepted the fact that the other set of RAM was damaged A few minutes later suddenly the screen goes black then quot The Blue Screen of Death quot as they call it pops up and my computer reboots It does this every time I have the memory sticks installed into my computer I m left with no choice but to use the original RAM that came with my PC Why is this Is my second set of RAM damaged as well Or is there something that i have to do Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance nbsp

Guys, here's the problem:

I just recently reinstalled Windows XP SP2 on my pc. Now after a few days, I tried to run cmd from the run dialog box... and as soon as i press enter the system displays an error message (which i cannot catch) then suddenly restarts... And this happens all the time... Does anyone have any clue to what might have cause this? Help would be very much appreciated.

Fresh install. Actually, the second fresh install. Just this afternoon, I was able to boot into 2000. I just got a new XP disk and now thought I didn't have to deal with 2000 anymore. Yay! Installed it as a FAT system. Thought it might be the filesystem, so I reinstalled it as NTFS.

I tried everything here and here. But to no avail. The drivers scroll past, mup.sys appears on the screen, and then the screen goes black, and the computer reboots. Any other Ideas?

I need some assistance. I have ran a couple of different programs on my computer and they have come up with zero for viruses, trojans, spyware, etc. BUT, my computer still boggs down, reboots itself after a mere 5 - 10 minutes!

So, I'm curious IF it's NOT a virus. What would cause my computer to just "reboot" by itself. And sometimes I get a message on the screen, a little box that says something like "WinNT system is shutting down now, you have 1 minute to save, etc" I am running WinXP Home.

OMFG! This started happening about a month ago and only rebooted itself rarely. But as time went on it became more frequent and now it does it every 10mins. I shut off the system setting for reboot when there is a problem and i get a BSOD. I have defragmented my system, did a system restore, cleaned off the motherboard of any dust just incase of over heating and have uninstalled a bunch of programs that i thought might be a problem. I have no idea how this started, but its pissing me off. PLZ suggest anymore ways that might fix my problem.

You sure it's not a virus? Does it give you some error like "Windows has been shut down to prevent damage". It could also be a conflicting driver. Have you installed any new hardware recently. What programs do you have running before it happens? Possibly post a ss of the running programs from task manager

A:XP Pro reboots

Open System Properties (winkey+pause/break), select Advanced > Startup and Recovery\Settings.

Make sure "automatically restart" is UNchecked.

This will give you a STOP message on a blue screen that you can copy. Note the Stop error parameters and the driver mentioned.

You may also find them in some cases by going to c:\windows\minidump and opening the minidump files in Notepad. Then select Edit > find, enter stop and "find next".

You will see the STOP error, the parameters, and the driver name, if present, in the proximity of the STOP. Copy and paste that part.

My name is Krysti, and I'm somewhat okay with computers. (ish. )
Lately my desktop has been restarting at random, I think at CPU intensive moments, but I'm not quite sure...
I don't know what could cause this, since I don't think I installed anything new or made any changes to my system recently. I thought it was overheating perhaps, but I cleaned the fans and checked if they worked, which they did. Maybe it's just old age, I don't know? I really don't know what to do and I hate using my laptop at home, which is what I'm doing now.

Hopefully someone can help me? I'd appreciate it so much! Thanks in advance!

A:Random reboots

There are several memory dumps present in the uploaded files, the most recent being from 19 Sep 2011 (the next most recent is from June and was probably fixed with the Windows Update USB fix). Did you notice this memory dump occurring? Could the random reboots actually be BSOD's? I'd suggest disabling Automatic restarts in order to stop the system at the BSOD (if it's occurring). Here's instructions on how to do this: Set MiniDump

The memory dump points to memory corruption - which doesn't necessarily mean an issue with your memory (this includes CPU Cache, mobo, video and RAM), but it's a good idea to test the memory just to be sure. Here's a link to a free memory test: Memory Diagnostics (read the instructions at the link). There are more tests for the other memory components - but let's not start with them right now.

Repeated errors of this type in the System logfile:

If it's not needed - enable it, uninstall it's software and physically remove the device from the system. If it is needed, then enable it and update it's software - then disable it again.

So, let's see if we can force it to spit out the name of a 3rd party driver that it blames for the problem. If it doesn't find one, then we'll start looking at hardware/compatibility issues. Please follow these instructions to run Driver Verifier:


Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Special Pool" and "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the... Read more

A couple of times now when the system has had an error Windows 2000 has rebooted itself without warning which is damn annoying, is there a way to stop it doing this?

The first time it did this was when I was moving an S/PDIF lead attached to my soundcard and I got a massive 'White Noise' through my speakers.
It did this a few times while I was checking the problem but stopped when I moved the Soundcard into another PCI slot.

It did it earlier this evening when the CD ROM got confused about something.

A:W2K auto reboots?

First off, you can prevent W2K from booting on error, but you'll still have the BSOD with the error. Right click on My Computer / Properties/ Advanced / Startup and Recovery and turn off boot on error. If you're having problems plugging things, try not doing it when the system is on, generally a bad idea. Static can drive you nuts without proper grounding for all components.

After 4+ years my pc started rebooting randomly yesterday. I changed the psu thinking my old one may be going bad. I removed, cleaned and re-installed the cooler/fan with new thermal paste. My board is MSI Z68MA-ED55 B3, i5 2500K cpu, 8g RAM. I know that it is not overheating as it was running @ 42c when it last rebooted. I've done no overclocking. This AM it ran for just over an hour before rebooting then ran for 1/2 hr. and then for another 1/2 hr when it started to reboot every time windows 7 pro started.

One thing that may be unusual is that all 6 cpu phase leds flicker very rapidly except for #1 which stays on solid. since I only see them when I open the case while it's running, I have no idea what they are supposed to look like. The MSI board has been no help.

Hi jer37 and welcome to TSF.


I can boot the computer via safe mode.

In Safe Mode do:-

Window Key+R and type msconfig and hit OK.
Under 'Services tab', tick 'Hide all Microsoft Services' and then uncheck the remaining programs and 'Apply'
Then under 'Startup tab' - Uncheck anything not Microsoft related then 'Apply' and OK

Then reboot and see if that helps. Trying to see if a program or something else may be interfering. What anti-virus are you currently using?

Hey guys, I am having PC problems and I was hoping I can get help here. Here is the story.
During large downloads, my PC would reboot within a min or 2. The PC would also occasionally reboot out of nowhere, even when nobody was using it. It recently got to the point where it reboots during the Windows startup screen. I got another HDD from craigslist and did a fresh install of Windows XP. My PC now has no random rebooting but it still does reboot when trying to download large files. I will try to send a zip file of the minidump. I hope I did it correctly.

My Windows XP always reboots after shutting down. I have looked closely at the shutdown. At a certain point, i see a "blue screen of death" for a fraction of a second. Impossible to read the text on the screen. Just after that, the pc reboots.

The only way to shut the PC down is pressing the power button for a few seconds.

Any idea what is happening ? Or how I could debug this situation ? I have no idea what is wrong. I haven't installed any new software recently, and when the PC boots, the system works fine. It just doesn't shut down anymore.

Hey everyone. I just ran into a problem that has persisted for a few days. I've had my computer for 3 years and never had a problem with it. Now a few days ago it started randomly rebooting when I play games. Sometimes I get a blue screen that says something about a memory dump, other times it reboots normally. One of my friends said my CPU might be overheating (Intel i7 920, 2.67GHz, not overclocked), so I found out my core temps: 53-58 when not doing much, and somewhere in the 80s when running a game. Any insight on possible causes is highly appreciated.

Let's start with your temps: Anything above 80-85c is to much, it might be an overheating problem so i suggest to buy an air duster, or a compressed air can and clean your computer vents. They can be found at any computer store or online from
