Help! CD-R Error Code 4200?
on Oct 3, 2008 at 2:16:46 pm

Hi everyone,
This is a little off subject, but I'm looking for some desperately needed help. I just purchased a new workstation using Windows XP Pro for running Sony Vegas 8 with DVDA. At times I make a soundtrack to go along with my DVD movies.
I was able to burn 3 differant soundtracks to CD-R discs, but when I went to burn another, I couldn't. Upon placing the CD-R disc in my Plextor drive it would read fine, but when it's ready to burn I get a pop-up stating "Cannot Burn Disc Error Code 4200." I am able to download recorded CD's to my hard drive as well as play them. In addition, I can read, burn and play DVD's without any problems. My only problem is burning a CD-R.
I have tried the following to try to remedy the problem;
1) Used four differant burning programs in which I have alway's used on othe computers without failure.
a) Nero 8
b) Micro Studio
c) Music Mix Meister
d) Roxio
2) Different Manufacturer's discs
a) Verbatim
b) Imation
c) Sony
3) Changed internal drives from Plextor to Pioneer. (I swapped them back to Plextor, due to great performance in the past).
4) Tried a program called RegCure which states that it eliminates this particular error code, but didn't.

The only thing I haven't tried is to totally reinstall Windows XP Pro. If you have experienced this problem and know of a cure, "PLEASE" let me know.
Your help would be most appreciated. Thank you, Ray

Icky icky- see this is why we avoid Windows entirely, Bill Gates. :) If I had to take a wild guess I'd imagine there's a driver issue. So you either reinstall Windows or you track down the cd burner's driver software and look for an update.

I hear ya, Noah
Thanks for the reply. I have searched this problem to death without any solutions. There are others faced with the exact same thing. Updates was the first thing I went after, all my drivers are up to date. I chose windows XP Pro over Vista due to all the issues that needed to be resolved at the time. I really enjoy using Sony Vegas and DVDA. In addition, this forum has really helped me get my feet wet and well on the way from all the expertise of all in it.
Thanks for the input and "if" and that's a big "IF" I get this resolved, I will let everyone know. Thanks again, Ray
