DVD burn with DVD X-copy not completing finalizing mode

I posted this problem 2 days ago and was told as a solution to uninstall and reinstall my DVD x-copy software to solve the problem. I did this and retried to burn a DVD with the software, without any success. however, a clue to the problem may lie in the pop-up that said the following: The device driver for the "patin couffin engine" device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you may need to update this driver.
Is this what is causing the "finalizing" to not complete the burn? Is there an easy solution or what is the solution? Thanks

    Hi geekinator-

    Thanks for your advice. I downloaded the free-codecs that i found, then re-booted and tried to burn a dvd and it still would not complete the finalization process. i am at a loss as to th eproblem. My question is whether it is in the computer or the software- my guess is it is in the computer, that something is blocked or firewalled or something. any more suggestions? thanks

"Is this what is causing the "finalizing" to not complete the burn?" ... Almost certainly yes. You need to update/reinitialize your Patin Couffin engine device drivers(s).


  1. Download the stand-alone installation package.
  2. After download is complete, close all other applications, then run it.
  3. Restart (reboot) your system.
  4. Test by re-performing the same procedure(s) which previously failed and generated the error dialog (pop-up).

    Unfortunately, I don't have DVD X-copy, so I'm not intimately familiar with it. However, most all similar software's are fundmentally the same. Therefore, have you tried burning any other different source DVD? If that is successful:

    1. It takes quite a bit of the suspicion off your DVD burner drive device itself.

    2. Then give this a try ...

    • Download (if applicable) and use in conjuction with your next test burn.

    • Also, test using "simulation" (or similar sounding term) via "burn" (if DVD X-copy has that very common capability).

    TIP: I hope you're using DVD RW's as apposed to DVD R's during all your test burning. No sense in creating an endless supply of coasters while you resolve the problem. Only after you get a successful burn do you then use a DVD R.

    Good luck, and please post back with an update.

Dvd playback hesitates during playback when burned using 123copydvdgold. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this?


Several things can cause that to occur.
First, when you were burning the disc, if you had any other programs running at the same time, the other programs can cause glitching of the burn.

Also, automatic updates can sometimes cause it.

It can also be caused by a bad copy of whatever movie you are burning, this can be caused by bad download, dirt on the disc or in the burner drive itself.

Even simple things like anti-virus programs can sometimes cause it to burn badly.

I would try this.
Reboot your computer to safe mode with network access.
Turn of ALL updates, and then try to burn it again.
You might also want to try burning it at a slower speed, sometimes that can also cause problems.

I hope this gives you some ideas as to how to get a better burn.

Good luck to you, and have a nice day !

Code error

Before following the suggestions given below please make sure that you have the latest firmware for your DVD burner drive. Please contact your vendor or visit the manufacturer's website for the latest updates.

Please follow the steps mentioned below to resolve the issue:

1) Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. Then empty Recycle Bin.

2) Defragment your hard drive. DVD video files are very large and can quickly fill your hard drive to capacity. A fragmented hard drive can cause problems during DVD burning. Make sure to defragment your drive(s) regularly.

3) To avoid any compatibility issues, please close all other software and utility applications including virus scans, screen saver and instant messaging software before you launch PowerDirector.

4) Increase Virtual memory :

1. Right click on "MyComputer"
2. Select Properties -> Advance
3. Click on "settings" under Performance.
4. Select "Advance"
5. Click on "change" under Virtual memory.
6. Select "Custom" and enter initial value as "512" and Max value as "3096".

NOTE: If your existing settings are higher than recommended then leave them as before.

5) Please check whether the drive where you have installed Power Director software has enough space on it. At least 15 GB of free space is required and recommended while burning a DVD.

Now, try to burn the DVD at low burning speed.

If the issue still persists, try to uninstall other CD/DVD burning software like Nero, EasyCD Creator, Direct CD etc. Two burning software installed on same computer are known to cause conflict due to common files in them.

Also disable the XP built-in burning software. To disable the Windows built-in burning software:
- Open My Computer.
- Right-click your CD-RW or DVD drive and click Properties.
- Select the Recording tab.
- Remove the check mark from the 'Enable CD recording on this drive' check box.
- Click OK.

Also make sure that the total size of the video does not exceed the disc limit. (It is recommended that the total size should be less than 4.3 GB)

Now, close all other software and utility applications and then try the 'Create a DVD folder' option in the burning options screen and let us know of the result.

If the DVD folder is burned successfully, then the issue is burner specific and not software specific.

If the issue still not resolved, you may need to reinstall the Power Director software. Uninstall other burning softwares and then reinstall Power Director.

Follow the steps given below to reinstall your PowerDirector. Before installing your program, please close your MSN messenger, since we found that MSN messenger my lock some installation programs.

i) Uninstall PowerDirector software:

a.)Start--> Programs -->Cyberlink PowerDirector --> Uninstall PowerDirector

b.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

c.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

d)Reboot your PC.

ii) Reinstall PowerDirector. (NOTE: Before installation please close MSN Messenger, if open)

Now try again to 'Create a DVD folder'.

Go ahead with burning DVD only if the DVD folder is created successfully and without errors.

Trying to test dvd finalization burning with nero 8

Not an exact solution to your problem, but I feel a better solution.
Let me explain.

I used to use Nero 7. Then it seemed to make mistakes all the time. Error this, and error that. Removed it, used registry cleaner, reinstalled it.
Fine for a while, then the errors came back.
This became very monotonous.

I started downloading ISO files, of different Linux Ubuntu operating systems. Recommended burner software was a free version. Infra Recorder.
I uninstalled Nero, and installed Infra Recorder.
Haven't had a problem in a year and a half!
