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.

Is it possible to unfinalse A DVD of a wedding 2 years ago so I can make further copies of original disc

no, the finalizing just means that any non-writer is able to read the disc. You can make copies whether it's finalized or not, select disc copy in your burn program or copy the data to your hard drive

Sony dvd dru-190a not able to read dvd's but reading cd's. Please help.

It sounds like the laser on your drive is gone. But there are a couple of things you can try first before buying a new one.

Uninstall the driver for it in Device Manager and let windows reinstall it automatically on reboot.
or use DriverEasy to install it > download here .
Uninstall and reinstall whatever burning software you use.

Take a look at this thread. Some of the tips there might apply to you.

The drive I had trouble with back when I posted in July finally died a couple of weeks ago. CD's worked fine, just like you. All my good settings with Auto Run, etc, were still there. So I bought a new drive and I'm back in business.

I'm trying to copy old family videos from VCR to DVD. I'm using the correct disc type (DVD-R) and there's no copy protection. I've tried both Sony and HP discs. Each time, it seems to be working but...

First, try to refinalize the disc if it failed the first time by going into the edit menu. Sometimes finalization just fails the first time.

If you are recording on 2-hr mode, and the length of your recording is an 1hr 50 min or more, there will not be enough space left on the disc to finalize. Going forward, your best solution would be to record in 3- or 4-hour mode for every 2 hrs worth of recording (6-hour mode for 3-5 hours of recording, etc.). Just to quickly decipher recording modes: 2-hr mode (sometimes called SP Mode, depending on DVD player) will record about 2 hours worth of material on a standard blank DVD (but some extra space would be required for finalization); 4-hour mode would record 4 hours worth of material on a standard DVD; 6-hour mode would record 6 hours, etc.

As far as salvaging the recordings you have already made - load the burned, yet unfinalized DVD's into your computer. Copy the files onto the desktop or some easy-to-find location on your computer. Then use a program, free or otherwise (I personally reccomend Nero or Roxio), to re-burn the discs. The newer version of Nero automatically finalizes the disc, but some software requires you to select an option that allows you to "close disc" or "finalize" the disc. (In computer lingo, "closing" means the same thing as "finalizing").

Good luck!

Software downgrade or uninstall messes with driver, throws **DVD** copy/write into PIO

1) I've discovered over the years that disabling the 'auto-protect' mode on the anti-virus while burning speeds up the process.
2) Try uninstalling the BURNER software instead of anything else, I got a laptop in my shop the other day with SLOOOOooow burn (if at all) process, by uninstalling and installing another burn software (Roxio instead of Nero for example), tends to alleviate the problem.

Hope this helps.

How much RAM needed to burn DVDs?

no, ram should not be the problem... you should first reinstall your os and use nero 6.66... that can happen because of many things but you can this before reinstalling:

make a new account on window xp, delet your existent...
start the system in safe mode... if it allows you to burn the dvd in safe mode your problem is operative system...

in fact if the problem is solved by burning from a new windows account... that should be all...

the problem could be caused by:

bad or low transference IDE cables... you need ATA 66 cables minimum...

problems with burning software ( if you already have nero, uninstall it completely and install a newer version), there are many free trials on the internet.

of course more RAM would be a great help... but the problem isnt that...
