strange freeze when burning audio CD from cuesheet

Recommended Posts

hey,

 

i got a nasty bug here. i got one certain cuesheet which freezes my xp (imgburn 2.4.1.0). it goes up to 14%, and then the writer stops blinking, and nothing happens after that. heres the .cue:

 

PERFORMER "Mixed By: Hiver & Hammer"

it stops at the 2nd track... i cant reboot, shut down, or start any new program. it wont power down by pressing the power button. only reset helps.

i also tried with another cuesheet, it worked like a charm:

 

TITLE "Progression"

INDEX 01 63:57:28
 TRACK 13 AUDIO
TITLE "Cause You Know (Is This The End)"
PERFORMER "Markus Schulz feat. Departure"
INDEX 01 71:55:13

 

then i though the cause of the problem is the missing PERFORMER field. but then i found another cuesheet:

 

REM GENRE Electronic
REM DATE 2005
REM COMMENT  YEAR: 2005
PERFORMER "Ulrich Schnauss"
TITLE "Far Away Trains Passing By (Bonus CD)"

REM REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN -6.58 dB
REM REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_PEAK 0.886902
INDEX 01 32:56:72

 

and this one also works. any ideas?

 

edit: i thought the '&' in the 3rd track might cause the trouble, but after deleting it from the cuesheet, it still fails

You can't call anything a bug until you know what the actual cause is!

 

Where's the log of the burn?

 

Do you have a screenshot of what's on the screen when it's stopped and no longer doing anything?

It would appear the drive is giving up as it moves over to track 3.

 

If you were to attempt to burn that same CUE again (say 5 times), does it fail each time in the exact same place? (please don't just guess if you've not tried it!)

 

If you then try to burn another cue (on the same disc, without rebooting etc) does it work fine first time?

yeah i tried it several times

 

after the last post i waited for imgburn to finish (it didnt). i finally kicked it from task manager, and after some time i could eject the cd. then i erased the disk and now (with no reboot) tried to burn the 3rd cue (far away trains passing by), and now its stalled at 59% :S

Try any of them. I don't think the files have anything to do with the issue.

 

Use the eject button in imgburn to get the disc out. The tray is locked, that's why the button won't work. ImgBurn issues the unlock command before the eject one so it gets around that problem.

nope it didnt work. there was a jammed imgburn process in task manager which i was unable to kill. thus i was unable to issue any sw command to the burner. the open button didn't work either. i tried explorer, but then it also freezed. so i rebooted now.

 

but in the meanwhile it came to my mind that the firmware thid drive uses is rpc1 patched. now i try with the stock firmware and will let you know soon how it goes with that

 

edit: no joy, it didn't solve the problem

i thought i finally realized what the problem was. i installed nero expres (came with the drive), and it also got stuck at 20% (i guess its the same position and differs numerically due to differences in implementation). so i thought the mp3 is corrupt in some way. i edited the cuesheet so that it use the Progression mp3 file. but now it fails again, at 14%. there must be something wrong with the cuesheet but i just donno what the hell it is.

 

could you please try to burn an album with this certain cuesheet (the first one, "a trip in trance")?

hmm. it's really fishy. now i booted 64bit xp (the bug was encountered on 32bit xp), and the cue was burnt w/o any problem... i'll try to burn the cue from a wave file... i run out of ideas :)

The program is not in control at the point where it's stopping - I know this because you're unable to abort.

 

Basically it's sent a command to the drive and it then waiting for the OS or whatever to process it.

 

Control is only returned to the application once it's either completed successfully or errored out.

 

You're not getting either of those things happening and that's why the whole system kinda hangs - the I/O subsystem has hung/crashed and rebooting is the only way forwards.

 

Do you know which controller your drive is connected to? Are the drivers up-to-date for your motherboard? What about the bios?

 

You could try following the post in the FAQ relating to resetting DMA (it involves uninstalling your controller and rebooting) - this often fixes a lot of problems.

thanks for your ideas. i'll try to update a few drivers now. the bios is the most current to date. in the meanwhile i tried another configuration. to conclude:

 

cue a + mp3 a = fail

cue a + mp3 b = success

cue b + mp3 a = success

cue b + mp3 b = success

 

so both the cue and mp3 works with other files. interesting... :)

 

edit: the drive is connected to sata3

Sometimes you have 2 SATA controllers on a motherboard. One that's part of the main chipset and the other via a 3rd party controller.

 

You might need to check the manual to work out which is which.

hi,

 

i tried it on SATA1 too, but the result was the same. i give up, it must be something wrong in one of the 32bit xp drivers for my motherboard, and imgburn is clearly innocent in this error

 

thanks for you patience and assistance, and special thanks for this great app!

FYI, it also fails on 32bit vista (installed recently) and on a PC owned by a friend of mine. i think he uses XP. but for him it fails at 28% and he was able to eject the CD. additionally, he got an I/O Error message (i didn't).

Getting an I/O error means it could be something totally different that's making it fail on his pc.

 

Can you post his log?

unless imgburn archives logs automatically, i can't.

 

hm, i checked out, it's in application data. i'll ask for the log the next time i see him and post it here ASAP

hi,

 

it seems i was misinformed since the guy misunderstood the actions imgburn took :)

so it failed at data verification

i donno what kind of cd he used, but i guess it could be the cause of the problem (or the old burner)

 

i burned it on xp64 and it was ok:

FYI: ok i found sg:

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924051

 

i already placed a hotfix request (i have to beg for it, funny isn't it?:) ), now i'm waiting for their response

 

edit: it seems it's already solved in xp sp3. it also works on windows server 2003 (sp2), which has the same kernel & codebase that windows xp 64bit edit has.

now only vista remains, i'll let ms know that their fix is necessary on vista too

You just need this atapi.rar

 

extract it and copy atapi.sys into system32/drivers you will more than likely have to do this in safe mode or extract replacer and run the file and then drop original system file into window and press enter then drag the one you want to replace that with into window and reboot if asked
