hp 7100i buffer underrun?!?

Every time i try to burn an audio-cd, the program(NERO)reports that the energy calibration range is almost full.
It also says that"Timeout for buffer allocation reach"(>= 500 ms). I am using a hp 7100i ide on ide-port 1, the source cd-drive is a lite-on 40x(7x audio on ide port 2, both already self-tested and firmware upgraded. Same problems with hp-software easy-cd and Winoncd 3.5 Thanks a lot

A buffer underrun occurs when something interrupts the process of write, you must exit all programs, even tsr, antivirus, schedulers, etc. check this out...


I once screw 5 cd, i din't know about it, but now i know...

And if nothing works, try loading the data/audio to the HDD, then burn the CD from there... is more faster...
Have your tried makin an image of the CD to HD and burn it off you HD. coz that should solve you buffer underrun. Well that is if you've tried all the suggestions from those links. Like close all the running background programs, antivirus monitor, etc,etc.
good luck

Try no to burn the Audio cd "On the fly" (direct cd to cd) unless you have previoulsly tested the audio source cd in question. I find burning audio a little more tricky than data because Nero/Adaptec etc has to read the audio track and then convert it, while burning. The best thing to do is first create a cd image file on your HDD and then burn your audio cd from that.

Sometimes the audio track cd is scrated etc and the reader has a hard time reading and encoding the music.

- Create a image file first and burn that!
- shut down any backround applications
- reduce you write speed to 2x or 1x
- Place you image file on your main (fastest) HDD

Please try CDrWin for the very best in audio copies. I use version 3.7 and choose back up disk instead of making a image file to my hard drive. I have never experienced any problems with this program copying audio files. If per chance that doesn't work, there are many different tactics to take dealing with file back up. It doesn't stop there. It does let you create an image file to your hard drive(cue) and then come back and select - make disk from Bin(cue). Just remember to always select jitter(or error) correction 5.
