Never completes "Synchronizing Cache"

Recommended Posts



I am having a problem completing a DVD write with The software writes OK and displays "Synchronizing Cache", but never completes to go on to the verify step. I left it all night and it never continued. The disks are from the same box of disks that I have used to successfully write DVDs using version, but I have not been able to complete one since upgrading to I have appended the latest log below.

When you think it's gotten stuck (i.e. been doing it for a while), press F8 and see if the program is still actually communicating with the drive (and the drive responding).


If the log fills up with stuff, you know it is and it's then just a case of your drive thinking it's still busy. Nothing I can do about that I'm afraid.


Try this firmware update, it may fix the issue your drive is having with the media.

It's version E223 where yours is only E152
