    Checking SPTD Version?

    Download the Duplex secure installer package. It will tell you the version and whether u need an update or not.

    Device not ready (meduim not present)

    I was using windows Vista before upgrading to 7. Before someone thinks I will start to bash: it was running smoothly (I only chose to upgrade since I got my licensed Windows 7 copy anyway). I will tell you the most common causes that causes Vista to crawl: 1. Outdated or buggy drivers (Most common cause for systems sluggishness and BSODs): Try to find the latest drivers for your hardware profile. Microsoft do have ONLY DEFAULT drivers for hardware but any customizations is the job of your PC or hardware vendor. Check their respective Web Resources. 2. Unnecessary running services: Remember when I told you to disable windows search indexing service. Well there are many other services that might be running in the background and slowing your computer down. you have to find them and disable them or use some optimizing utility to do it for you. 3. GARBAGE: yeah you heard me, junk files, obsolete programs, cluttered registry all of those can bottleneck your system making it run sluggishly. There are many freeware and shareware cleanup and optimizing utilities you can use if you look. If you wish to know my recommendation PM me and I shall give them to you. 4. Last but not the least and one I hope you don't have is a FAULTY hardware like a Faulty RAM chip (common cause I see around) or HDD. Run diagnostics tests (like Windows Memory diagnostic test for RAM) on your RAM, HDD and see if it comes up with any errors. IF not then its one of the above. Hope it Helps Regards Paladin77

    Well I guess we are on the right track. Try Defragmenting your HDD (especially your system drive). Also consider removing the SPTD drive (i.e DT or alchol 120%) there are better alternatives than those. Also try to stop services that are eating up your system resources: 1. Click start, Type "MSCONFIG" 2. Click on the Services tab 3. Check Hide all Microsoft services radio. 4. Disable services that u do not need (note some services are beneficial like Antivirus for example).

    Well it simply makes searching for stuff at your HDD faster by creating indices so if you have a large HDD say 500+ GB full of videos photos and stuff like that it would come in handy when you dunno where you put your stuff. Otherwise its safe to keep it turned off (it even speeds up windows by not keeping HDD and CPU in use).

    Device not ready (meduim not present)

    Also Try Disabling the Windows Vista indexing service on your HDD. It was found to cause numerous problems while burning. 1. Click on Start button, then select Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools, and double click on Services applet.Alternatively, simply type “Services” (without quotes) in Start Search box. 2. If User Account Control asks for permission, click Continue. 3. Locate an service named Windows Search. Right click on Windows Search, and then select Properties on contextual menu. 4. Click on Stop button to stop the indexing service immediately. 5. On the Startup Type dropdown box, select Disabled. 6. Click on OK button.
  7. ok Problem Solved. I hate messing around with Firmwares rom packs but it was necessary since MSI guys are quite lazy regarding drivers (hell I got my gfx driver for w7 5 days ago).

  11. Ok so I was burning a Windows Vista SP1 and the strangest thing happened. Imgburn identified my media type as MC-00 (which is non existant) and identified supported burn speeds as 2.4 and 4X. What is more strange that on Verify it was correctly identified as MCC-004. This happened after a firmware update from 1.01 to 1.02 from the MSI website (vendor of my laptop). Question is should I be worried or is it just glitch? Here is the log: I 11:17:18 ImgBurn Version 2.5.0.0 started!

    dvd burner not found

    Try connecting the LG drive via USB and disconnect other hardware connected via USB ports then reboot your computer with your drive connected.

    Is it evil to push in my dvd's drawer by hand?

    No it isn't Evil (Satan won't come up don't worry) its pretty much the same pushing the button or Gently pushing the drive tray (its written in your drive or xbox manual) Pushing the tray gently does pretty much what button does activates motor to pull back the tray. And as Cynthia said its always safer to use software interface to do that (I personally don't look at my desktop drive at all except for putting the disc in the tray).

    ImgBurn doesn't save log if Shutdown is selected

    OK this has dragged long enough. First Let me say thank you LUK for fixing what isn't really an Imgburn problem (which I will explain why). Conqueror I will tell you why your log is empty even though you used a shutdown utility or w/e. First lets get to the roots of this problem: you're probably using an "optimize and tweak" utilities to speed up your boot up and shutdown, This lowers the process kill sequence deployed by windows to kill all processes to safely shutdown the pc (Default is 120 seconds i.e if all your programs are shutdown in under 5 minutes computer will shutdown; once it hits the 5 minute mark, Windows kills it and shuts down sort of like end process of task manager to make the analogy close to you). Now as for why your log appeared empty even with a 3rd party shutdown program and Imgburn having enough time to dump a log of what apparently is a failed burned is that Imgburn displays a dialogue box that needs user interaction (Either Retry or Cancel or OK or Cancel). Your disc has failed lets say with w/e error (we will never know) Imgburn displayed an error message requiring your attention (but since you were in dreamland it was impossible). The entire program kept displaying this box till shutdown sequence was sent and process was killed before Imgburn could have any chance to dump any log of the failed burn. As for that log you posted, it is probably the log of another instance (Window) of Imgburn that was open which you probably shutdown before you go to sleep (you were awake at 7:50 weren't you?). That is the only plausible explanation (besides someone else messing with your PC while you were sleeping ) Of course you could have saved yourself the entire fiasco if you haven't lowered the process kill sequence as for prompts & warnings read the guides to see how to disable prompts/warning.

    How do I tell what dyd my Discs use

    Here is the link for the most comprehensive correlation between "Brand" name and Media ID or MID or manufacturer's ID. Also useful on knowing good discs from crap ones. Although its like a universal fact that Verbatims (singapore ones) and Taiyo Yuden discs (Made in Japan and isn't made elsewhere if it says it is its counterfeit) are the best discs out there in both quality and compatibility with drives old and new
