Internal SDK Error


Recommended Posts


Got a sudden and very frustrating problem. After burning 'Audio Discs' with CDBurnerXP for many years (from MP3s) without any problems - always using using Verbatim CD-Rs - I'm now getting the follow error message every time:

"CStarBurn_SCSITransportSPTI: ExecuteCDBO: Command failed - Internal SDK Error", also complaining about "low-quality media", etc.

What happened is this. I got myself a brand new high-end(ish) PC with the specs listed below, so plugged-in my trusty external DVD burner Asus Slim SDRW-080 D2S-U Lite - only to get the above message (yes, using Verbatim CD-Rs). Strangely, also got the same message when trying to use my External Asus Slim Blu-Ray Writer. Even odder, I bought a new Asus Slim SDRW burner thinking that mu old one might be faulty in some way, only to be confronted by the same message. I also get the same sort of error message when trying to burn the CDs using Nero Burning ROM/Express. Now going completely bizarre, I am now getting the same error message on my old PC - after never having any problems. If I use different media (ie, Intenso 'high quality'), I do not get the above error message and it seems to burn the CD successfully. However, you always get digital glitching on the last few tracks. Infuriating and weird! 

Yes, I am suing the very latest version of Windows 10 64-bit on both PCs.

Any ideas what the problem might be?
