    I'm using Power2GO5 version 5.6.3917 which I downloaded from the website allowing it to be used on Vista. I am receiving this same error message near the end of the DVD burn.

    Elsewhere someone else suggested...

    "Make sure you have the latest XP SP2-compatible version of Nero."

    There are patches available but not for my version.


    I'm still working on a solution any input would help out Thanks!

    Hi! Excuse me for my English. I'm writing from Spain and I have the same problem, error 0xeb020b88 when I use dvd shrink and after that power2go. I work on a hp laptop, Vista, and I've burned some wrong dvds yet. Do you know if this is a software or hardware problem? Maybe the discs?

    I dont' know much about computers but I've bought this one little time ago and this is the first time that I have a problem like that...

    Would you help me, please?

    Same problem - can't burn a DVD or CD, hardware NOT an issue, Using Nero, everything burning fine, then all of a sudden couldn't burn CD's or DVD's tried other software same thing, changed the drive, same thing..Drives and media work on my other pute..Checked DMA transfer selected..Might be XP.

  • Anonymous Mar 03, 2009

    this is what i've up with.. dvd's will not burn at all, so i burn on Cd's....with no errors whatsoever, regardless of the files...whether music, movies, games or programs. It has something to do with being unable to burn onto Dvd...even though I have the dvd/cd drive burner.

    Do you also getting the Data redundancy error?

    Is the error coming up with one CD only and with that CD in all PC ?

    Let me know are you copying the CD to CD or CD to Hard Disk, or else Hard Disk to CD (Burning)

    May be your Cd content is corrupt.. otherwise check the CD/DVD rom with a fresh CD and try to copy it.

Dude,Its very simple. Its nothing to worry. You havent used your DVD drive so frequently. There might be dust, debris or other contaminants from the laser lens that may cause skipping while write process. Get PHILIPS DVD Lens cleaner and run it once. Your problem will be solved.
I was facing the same problem for a weeks time, when my friend suggested me this.It worked well.

    For burning DVD/CD i would recommend use of NERO 8.0 version.

I was getting this error when the source was not readable. I had files that I could not even copy normally, let alone burn. I was getting CRC errors. I restored these broken files and tried again, and burn was successful.

There may be a problem with the external usb not getting enough power. I have an external usb slim drive that comes with TWO usb connectors. the extra usb connector is used to draw in additional power form the usb port. When, I connect both usbs to the same pair of usb slot (next to each other) on the computer, I get the error. When I connect each usb to a separate usb slot that is far away from each other on the computer, then i get no error. Since I am drawing power from two separate usb ports that are on two different pair, I have no problem.

Will not start up

hi , Reuben

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?

Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Exact OEM replacement remote you can try the manufacturer or No store will carry what you are looking for, but you can find universal remotes in any electronic store on the planet. Wal-mart, RadioShack, BestBuy, etc. Whatever is closest to your location. Good rule of thumb is if they sell TVs, they sell universal remotes.

    Removing bluetooth chip

    Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
    However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

    A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
    It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

    Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

    B) Do you have a wireless router?
    Do you have a wireless connection set up?

    You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

    C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.

    How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?

    Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

    Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

    Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

    I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
