HP-8100 w/directcd software hangs - help!
Posted on 1999-11-16
Was using easy cd creator software all the time to copy audio cds, then it for no appearent reason it started hanging during disk image. Have set 1000 meg virtual win95 mem. defraged HD with almost a gig free for image file. Was getting to 89% of image done when hung but sometimes only 14% or so. When it hangs, I can't cancel the program, or even shut down.
BIG delays in everything I do after hangs. Accessing explorer leaves it open without left directorys showing and it hangs. All programs end up showing (not responding) at 3 finger salute. Tried manual write mode in program also (as one source disk is larger then blank) but it would hang on test write at less than 1%. A clue might be that when it hangs, the reader drive light stops blinking. I can't even eject the source disk after that.
I'm thinking drives out of sync or something, but what do I know :) Tried reinstalling drivers and writer programs (even upgraded BM for bufferunderrun problem a while back). No change. Have done all the upgrades, tweaks, (like vcache) etc.
AMD K6/2 350->400 win95 ver. 4.00.950 B - 128 meg 100mhz - Mitsumi CD FX3400S!B is the reader. Also, reader and writer both read OK on audio and data. Thanks for any help, Ken
