Occasional Win10 crash worse with latest version

Recommended Posts


The new significant bug is that it can no longer see the disc, which the previous version could see and burn correctly. I tried burning, and it made it 25% and crashed, locking up the drive.

I had been getting occasional crashes (the "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly" alert) but it was generally after the program had been running for a while and was idle, running in the background. So I decided to try the latest version: 64 bit, (Build time: Sun May 07 11:04:15 2017 according to Process Explorer.)

The new version says that it can't detect the disc in the audio compilation window, but it could still report the information it saw if I asked for disc information from the menu. It is a 700MB CD-R that worked with the previous CDBXP version. I believe my previous version was the last minor change release, but it may have been 2.

Probably TMI, but maybe some of these details will help.

I ignored the missing disc error and started burning an audio compilation I had just burned with the previous version.

25% of the way through, Win 10 popped up the "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly" alert. I clicked the Close Program button on the dialog.

According to Process Explorer, cdbxpp.exe was still running and consuming a fair amount of memory; the disc was still spinning. I have a Process Explorer dump, if you're interested in it.

I killed the process, but CDBXP won't it won't restart, it hangs before any screens appear. It does get listed in Process Explorer, where I can kill it.

I can't remove the disc from the still spinning CD tray using its button or Windows Media player's command. I tried using a Command Prompt window, which froze from using:
C:\Program Files\CDBurnerXP>cdbxpcmd.exe --eject 

I eventually got the drive to stop using its button; here is the device info.
C:\Program Files\CDBurnerXP>cdbxpcmd.exe --list-drives
0: PLDS     DVD+-RW DS-8A5SH (D:\)

Update: after rebooting, it could recognize the drive and I burned two discs. A little while later the same dialog had appeared and I had to use it to close the program. Process Explorer did not show any CDBXP operations still running.
