Default Could not perform fixation?

Hi everyone,

Some time ago I asked for some help on how to burn a 90 minute disc. I was
able to burn the disc, but ever since I created that disc, I am stuck with
the following error: could not perform fixation. The writer is a Plextor
CD-R, PX-320a, and I am using Nero Burning Rom (5.5.10.56).

When I try to burn a CD-R, everything goes well right until the end when the
verification process starts, then it fails with the aforementioned error.
Besides this error, anoter is displayed: logical unit not ready, operation
in progress.

The first time it occured, I thought it was because I was watching TV with
my Hauppage TV card (which has given me troubles in the past), but now the
error keeps occuring.

The resulting disc seem to turn out fine: all files expected to be on the
disc are there, can be copied and verify correctly (CRC check with other
tools).

How can I fix this error? I already changed the expert features to disable
the overburn length (in short the tips given in
http://www.ormsby.ca/spazmogen/) but that did not seem to do it.

Thanks in advance for your time and trouble,

Princess Morgiah

What's the max rated speed of the Ritek CD-R?
Why are you burning at 1x?

Try the burn speed selected by Nero?

Though Plexwriters tend to be well behaved with overburning out to 95
minutes, you might have damaged the drive slightly. "Unable to perform
fixation" means that the runout is incomplete; since modern players need
very little runout, that may be okay.

The messages are distracting, but not critical as you have discovered.
In fact, it may be even less. Try writing without verifying; if that
gives no error, then the problem is only timing of the carriage
returning to start verification. If you're writing TAO, try DAO - that
means less movement on the mechanical assembly.

If you can isolate this to the mechanics and the drive is in warranty,
see if you can get it replaced or repaired by Plextor.

95 minutes? I didn't go so far, I only went to about 90 minutes. I doubt the
drive got damaged, since all burns worked after that one overburn - as I
mentioned in my reply to smh, the problem was solved by reinstalling Nero
(without patch).

Ok, I'll keep it in mind.

Nope - no warranty, not anymore...

The max rated speed is 48x, and the medium is Philips Silver Premium 80
minutes.

Why are you burning at 1x?


I don't know whether it's true, but I once read an article claiming the
lower the speed, the better the burn. Something to do with a longer that the
laser has to burn that 'spot' on a disc.


That was the wisdom long time ago. Use Plex Tools to measure and
compare the C1, C2 errors for discs burned at 1x and 16x (or 24x).

Besides, why not? It's not like I'm in a hurry to burn a lot of discs.


There are many crying why they couldn't burn at the max speed.

Try the burn speed selected by Nero?


That would be 1x as well, as proposed to me in the dialog box - it keeps the
settings of previous burns.


Try selecting 16x or 24x from the speed drop down box.

How do you know that without doing any overburning yourself, Mikey?

you might have damaged the drive slightly. "Unable to perform
fixation" means that the runout is incomplete; since modern players need
very little runout, that may be okay.

The messages are distracting, but not critical as you have discovered.


Aren't you desperately trying to weasel out of this, Slimeball?

==============================================
Mike Richter (Friggin' Scum) spewed (1/10/04):

Overburning is risky, but the biggest threat is that the runout
(leadout) will be too short and the copy won't play in some drives.


Is it now only in "some" drives, Mikey?

---------------------------------------------
Mike Richter: CD-R FAQ has Significant Errors
---------------------------------------------

=================================
From: "ned ludd"
Subject: Lead in and Lead out
Date: 5/28/02

"Mike Richter" (Friggin' ****) spewed (5/24/02):

I've posted privately to Andy on the FAQ section.

It is quite dated ... and has significant errors
based on my understanding.

An essential omission for this Subject is the role of
the leadout/runout in a reader.

A CD-ROM (or audio) drive needs the runout to read the session
at all.


Not in my experience.

An audio disc without a leadout ... will read in ANY player
up to the point where the data ends provided it was burned DAO.

Failed data discs burned DAO will behave similarly,
any complete files will be readable in any reader.
=================================

Mikey, you are a Friggin' ****!

Sure - http://www.ormsby.ca/spazmogen/ but I think it has turned into a 404

I can imagine that. But as I stated before, I'm not burning an amount of
discs that large, and my machine is running most of the time when I'm not at
work, so time is not of the essence here either.

Try the burn speed selected by Nero?


That would be 1x as well, as proposed to me in the dialog box - it keeps

Try selecting 16x or 24x from the speed drop down box.


I knew that - I though you meant that Nero would select some sort of default
write speed for me (which it does - the previous one I took).

Thanks,

This is funny. Why? Because I am the one that gave you the link.
"Patch", instead of update or upgrade, threw me off.
