no additional sense

Recommended Posts

every time i try to burn anything i get the same message almost instantly

 

no additional sense information

 

i have read that it could be the nvidia driver but i have tried rolling it back and it doesnt help - all the workarounds i can find are for xp and im running vista premium

 

the drive is a

 

TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203B

 

when i open imgburn or decrypter first it takes ages searching for it

then it takes an eternity for any software to open the device.

i dont know if this is pertinant but i would think so.

 

i dont think its the media i have tried at least four different types in there now

You've got bad controller drivers on, try updating them.

 

Your drive should not be showing up as 'Fibre'.

 

the ontrollors are completyely up to date

This is the firmware you are trying with?

 

http://www.samsungodd.com/Eng/Firmware/FWD...ode=&os_no=

 

:)

 

i have tried upgrading the firmware with the odd live update and manually

in both cases it says

this firmware is incompatible with your device

which is patently untrue

 

i have now installed vista service pack one and now i cant even start a burn

imgburn reports

 

device not ready (the request could not be performed because of an I/O error)

 

what i'm s'posed to do now i really don't know

There is a way of updating the firmware (.bin file) in this thread:

 

http://club.cdfreaks.com/f105/mini-faq-sam...writers-220607/

http://www.samsungodd.com/eng/Firmware/FWDownload/eng_FW.htm

 

Can you see the writer in Windows Explorer?

 

 

i can see it in explorer

but imgburn no longer sees any drive at all - for some reason

and nor does samsung odd live firmware update ( which does cover my model)

nor does wininquiry or any other samsung software i have downloaded

 

i cant find bin flashing software - Tsdnwin.exe - anywhere on the samsung websites to download

i can only find the tutorial page you gave me the link to

 

while i think of it - thanks for your help on this - your patience with my stupidynessnis is greatly appreciated

Have you installed the latest drivers for your chipset/storage controllers?

yeah - everything possible thing on this pc is as up to date as is humanly possible.

do you think it might help to uninstall and reinstall the drive and the ide drivers?

maybe uninstall it from the registry too?

As LUK said in this thread:

Your drive should not be showing up as 'Fibre'.

The nvidia driver is buggy, so try the Windows default driver or an older version of the nforce drivers.

Thanks alot mate! This was the solution to my problem!

At first I didn't really understand what LUK said, but I went into the "Device manager" and "Restored previous drivers" on "NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller" so it took Windows standard drivers, this fixed the problem and I will hopefully continue to burn with 100% successrate again.

 

ImgBurn: Operation Successfully Completed!

Do you see your drive at all in BIOS?

If you don't I would recommend you checking that the cables are attached properly to the burner.

 

Only thing I could come to think about with the drive dissappearing totally.

fishboy, if you can't see your drive in explorer you probably have a nasty filter driver installed that's not playing nicely.

 

Post the filter driver info - you can get at it via the Tools menu.

i can install or play dvds

its just when it comes to burning i get trouble

wots a 'filter' driver?

sorry i dont understand which driver or where to get it

pardon my stupedynessnis

do you think it could be a faulty sata connection on the motherboard?

or possibly a bad cable?

Look in the tools menu within ImgBurn.

 

You should then see an option for filter drivers.

 

Copy the the info to the clipboard and then paste it.

Ok, nothing to remove there so it must be some other issue.

 

Try uninstalling the controller entry from the ide/ata/atapi/raid controller branches in device manager and then rebooting.

ok - i've discussed it with the rest of my gang

weve made the decision to revert to xp as we are all sick of vista and all its inherant problems and the fact that half of our favourite programmes, as well as any new ones we try ,just wont run

at least not without three weeks of patches and tweaking - and then only if your lucky

im onsidering a dual boot up with p and vista 64 for when i need superfast speed

i dont know if this will help with my imgburn problem but im hoping so along with lots of other problems.

this is gonna take a few days though - i will report back as soon as it is done.

if you can bare with me i would really appreciate it
