Device Not ready ID CRC or ECC ERROR

Recommended Posts

I keep getting the Device Not ready ID CRC or ECC ERROR. I can shrink a dvd fine with dvd shrink but am unable to burn it w/ this program or with dvd decrypter and RecordNow! In the past i've burned many dvd's with no issue and all of a sudden it does not recognize the empty dvd's. I can still make a ISO file and watch dvd's. I've read the FAQ and previous posts and have tried various solutions but nothing works. I've bought better media(Taiyo Yuden-16x), uninstalled driver than rebooted, uninstalled IMGburn and reinstall. Played around w/ settings. I have also tried to find an updated driver but have been unsuccesfull in installing it. I have a Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-831S 1.40 (ATA)

This is the link to a updated driver but as mentioned I cannot install it, I keep getting an error mssg. http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=1986

 

I have a Toshiba Sattelite M-45 laptop w/ expired warranty.

 

 

 

I 01:29:48 ImgBurn Version 2.4.0.0 started!

I 01:29:48 Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600 : Service Pack 2)

I 01:29:48 Total Physical Memory: 515,500 KB - Available: 138,092 KB

I 01:29:49 Initialising SPTI...

I 01:29:49 Searching for SCSI / ATAPI devices...

I 01:29:50 Found 1 DVD±RW/RAM!

 

Please help!

If you haven't already tried cleaning the drive, do that.

 

Otherwise it's probably just faulty. See if you can get a replacement or buy an external one.

That was the full log,I think, when using a TY dvd. Nothing except make of burner shows up in screen and in view-log this shows up:

Yeah one of those cleaning discs will do. They normally have a brush or two on them that runs over the laser when you play a certain track.

 

Something like white spirit on a cotton wool dumbbell thingy might work too - assuming you're careful! Just wipe it over the laser and then dry it with the other end.

I just started having the same problem "Device Not ready ID CRC or ECC ERROR". I too have the Toshiba Satellite M45 laptop.

 

Was this issue resolved by a cleaning disc?

I purchased a DVD/CD cleaner (disc type with brushes on it) and that took care of my problem so far.
