Burning fails at 49% error

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hello friends

I have recently bought a ihas 324b with it3 firmware. Today I used it to burn an image on my disc and it successfully started burning @2.4 but when it reached it about 49% I got an error on my screen and the burning stopped. The screenshot of the error is attached below:

I/O error

I have written the log file in the attachment

I used this to burn a disc earlier today as well, and it worked perfectly.

Can anyone please tell me why am I getting this error now?

Waiting for your suggestions and advice

Hello Thomas,

The I/O error in most cases occurs are a result of drive errors, and therefore in your case the CD ROM or the DVD ROM drive of your computer may be having problems. You will need to troubleshoot any driver issues as well as the hardware issues that the drives may be having. Such things as dust accumulating on the drives may be a possible cause to such a problem and therefore you will need to make sure that the drives are clean.

A clean boot of your computer will also be another important way to determine if there is an incompatible application or driver that is having a conflict with the CD ROM drive.

The problem may also be with the CD or DVD discs you are using. If they have a problem like scratches or they have dust on them then burning data on them won’t be successful. You will need to wipe them clean and see if they will work.

It is true that the Input / Output error [I/O] is usually caused by a hardware problem but may not always be the case. It may also be caused by a problem in the media or the CD where you are burning the image because it throws up the error “Invalid Address For Write”.

But then this error can also be caused by the program you are using to burn the image. Since there are several possible causes, try checking each of them one after the other. First is to check your optical drive’s connection. Shut down your computer and then open the CPU case. Disconnect all cables attached to the DVD drive.

After that, connect the cables again. First, connect the power supply connector to the DVD drive and then turn on your CPU. Don’t worry this will not harm your computer. This is only to check if the drive receives power. After turning on the CPU you should see a reaction from the drive like motor sound and the LED light should flash.

After making sure that the drive is working and receives power, turn off the CPU again then connect the ribbon cable to the DVD drive. Turn on the CPU again then go to the CMOS and see if the DVD drive will be detected. If successful, restart your computer normally.

Next to check is the CD you are using. Try replacing the CD in the tray with a blank CD and then try burning it again. If the error appeared again, you should try using a different CD burning program.
