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

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.
1. start up computer and keep tapping F5 this will take you into safe mode when complete you should be able to copy your doc's to a dvd. 2. most anti virus prog require you to completly uninstall the old version then reinstall new version.
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").
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.
You need to check if somehow you enabled a zone protection ,,, Also try to 1.clean the lens 2.Reinstal drivers (find them in my computer right click properties device manager) 3. Use some other burning softvare i sugest Ashampoo burning studio...
