DVD error
on Aug 23, 2002 at 1:01:17 am

I receive this error using MyDVD software when i try to create a DVD on my new pioneer DVR-A04 drive. (using the pioneer DVD-RW media). This also occurred trying DVD-R media.

Could not complete the last command because: Device Error - Sense Code(4 08 01) - Logical Unit Communication time-Out - General(OSErr,264193).

I can create CD's with this drive but not DVD's

I used a small test file (30kb) for my test. I have a Micron Millenium 733 computer, 640 mb of memory, 2 40g hard drives. I am running windows xp professional. I am up to date on all the latest drivers and patches from microsoft.

I have the DVR-a04 drive as master, and a second dvd rom drive as slave.

Thanks in advance.

have you tried to use the Veritas software to burn directly to the DVD instead of using MyDVD?

I've solved my problem. I misunderstood how to turn DMA off. In my windows xp operating system I went to device manager and selected the drive in question only to find no why of turning DMA off. What I should have done was select the Secondary IDE Channel from the IDE ATA/ATAPI controller. In the AdvancedSettings tab, I then should have changed the transfer mode to PIO Only.

After doing this and re-booting all is well. I successfully burned my first DVD using the mydvd software.
