    I dont know why it worked previously and wont now, but i see way to much running at startup that may interfere with a cd writing session. If he wants all that stuff to be loaded at startup, he should at least shut down via Ctrl+Alt+Del everything except the Systray, Explorer and Easy CD Creator. If a screen saver is active it can also interfere.

    I found the following info in another post. I dont know if it will help or not. Maybe a clean up of the system itself will help. Start by dumping the temp files, and doing a scandisk/defrag of the hard drive.

    "Buffer underruns are the one thorn in the side of CD-writers, so first off,
    your friend should expect loads of these. They occur when the data stream
    to the memory on the CD-writer (the "buffer") is interrupted, and the writer
    effectively runs out of data to burn.

    This can happen because of several things:-

    1. The HD with the data on has been accessed by Windows which has
    interrupted the data stream.
    2. The HD's performance is slow because the drive is fragmented - try
    running defrag.
    3. The HD's performance is too slow anyway - try upgrading to a faster one,
    or use a slower write speed.
    4. Some other application is using the HD's resource - try shutting
    everything down before writing the CD.

    More often than not, just lowering the write speed should stop this. "

    Hi Sweet,

    I have had similar problems using EZCD Creator.

    Here are a few things you could try;

    1) I agree with Paul - make sure you shut down every single startup app you safely can, ESPECIALLY Direct CD - it's notorious for causing problems when using EZCD. But ANY program running in the background can cause write errors.

    2) If you have an 'always on' internet connection, make sure its off and any hardware/software firewall is also shut down while burning.

    3) Have you checked all of the CDRW's cables are secure? The move might have loosened them - the help section of EZCD mentions this as one possible cause of write errors.

    4) Are you sure the media you are using is okay? I got a bad batch of 30 CD-Rs, every one of them useless. Try a different batch/brand.

    5) Is the CDRW 'BURN-proof'? If it is, EZCD doesn't automatically enable buffer underun protection - you have to manually check the option in the dialogue box prior to starting writing to a disk (but I don't think that option appears if the drive is non-burnproof).

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards
    Kit

    Okay we think we have the prob figured out.. I couldnt burn it either.. At one point in the writing track .... it says need to rename file such and such to this.. cause its longer than what the computer is set up to except for characters.. eg.. it says its more than 64 characters.. so then when it goes to do the cd.. it cant find that file.. so its then giving us that error.. I have burnt a cd since then and it worked fine.. just not this one CD.. its called Photo Impressions, Photomontage. so i think its just that part.. thanks for the help all..

    Thanks for letting us know the problem/fix. I you have enough space on your dads hard drive, you could try the following. Copy the contents of the entire source cd to a named folder on the hard drive. Rename the offending file and then try to do the burn. If the file is linked to a path of something in the program however, it may either not work at all or need to be redirected to the correct name.
