cdburner and other programs which access the burner

Recommended Posts


ich have some problems in the last time, where the burning process breaks after the first step.

after killing more then 10 discs, i think i know, why cdburner kill the discs:

if an other program access the burner after cdburner init the disk to write the data, cdburner don't get access to the drive at the right moment and stop with on error message.

there are two programs which have this effekt: dvdfab passkey and windvd. for the first program i can understand this problem, but not for my videoplayer which check if some disk in the drive which an be accessed and every status change of the drive will trigger the program to check for a video-disk. only if a video is player, the program don't check the drive.

but if i start a new video after i start cdburner to burn a disk, i get every time a killed disk.

i think, that cdburner don't lock the drive for the whole burning process or lock i only for every step, so that other process can access the drive and the burning process will fail.
