XP crashes when burning legit DVDs
Posted on 2006-05-27
My PC (Athlon XP1600 1.4GHz 768 MB RAM -- Windows XP Home SP2 -- NTFS drives) has started crashing whilst burning legit DVDs. How can I find out if it's the DVD Burner (2 months old Sony) or the OS?
Sometimes the DVD just half copies then spits out the media -- sometimes the whole PC crashes.
The legit DVDs I'm referring to are non copy protected videos professionally authored tutorial videos, which I have copied in the past.
Here’s the Microsoft error message:
BCCode : 4e BCP1 : 00000099 BCP2 : 00000000 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1
In fact since I had XP Home with SP2 installed and the drives re-formatted to NTFS there have been quite a few crashes apart from the burning in general use -- with that,"your computer has just recovered from a serious bla bla..." message.
