MakeCD 3.2c problem

Hi:
i installed makecd 3.2c a couple of minute ago. Everything worked fine until i wanted actually to burn the cd. A small system description would be A4000 running Os 3.9. Sony CDRW CRX175A1 ver:5ys2. The CD-R are LG and ok as i burned one on a PC to be sure that they where ok.

The MakeCD Error i get is:

Target drive, CDR_Sony:
CD info read failed
Cmd MODE_SENSE_6 => Illegal Request: Illegal Field in Command Descriptor

Frying Pan 1.2.3 fails to read the blank CDs as well and i get the following window when i load a blank cd: "It appear that there area some hardware configuration problems......"

Any Ideas?

Rod

Try using generic driver instead of dedicated to Sony.

recorder issues..

hi,

i'm tomasz, author of the fp app :]..

i guess i could be able to help you a little in here.

basically the fact that FP displays this information not neccessarily means there is a problem preventing FP from working. let me explain.

most of the recorders have evolved together with the communication standard. the recorders that have emerged recently are most often using mature code that is scsi compliant. the older ones miss certain functionalities

fryingpan basically will display this requester, when drive tells us it is ready for action, but all actions seem to be failing. an example is no disc in tray. as a result, it is very hard to detect disc changes and such, so to get the most recent data you still need to press 'update' before you start recording the disc, or else it will just go wrong. there is a couple of reasons why i don't do it by myself.

to see if the fryingpan supports your recorder I suggest doing the following test:
- empty your drive tray,
- launch fp,
- insert a re-writable disc in drive,
- go to 'media' page and click update (the disc information should be updated, although you may not get all of them)
- click 'prepare disc for write'. if this fails, fryingpan will not be able to blank discs for you
- add one data and one audio track to "data/audio tracks" page (small iso and short mp3 or wav would do)
- deselect (clear) 'masterize' and select 'finalize' (close disc)
- click write. fryingpan should start recording scrambled data to your disc. if it does not - it may not be able to record the discs for you.
- when writing completes, go to 'media' page and click 'update'. details about your disc should be updated (because it worked before)
- check the 'contents page' - it should show one data and one audio track

the files recorded to your disc will not be useful - because every now and then fryingpan scrambles the data (this is a desired operation for unregistered users).

if any of the steps fail, i could still be able to resolve the problem, but you will have to install the 'debug' version for me and collect the logs (it takes as much as the installation of the software and performing the same operations as the few mentioned above). the logs will be collected in your RAM: drive.

hope this helps,
tomek.

@Rod_cl

As you can see my vows on polish forum were successful. The author itself offered you help

Tomasz:
i try the update option on the media section and get no info displayed. Example: medium type: ---.

Nothings is there. If i press afterwards "prepare disc for write" the drive progress changes from ready to preparing and then comes back to ready.

I did every step but after pressing write i get the following error:

TRack layout failed (-17). Disc will not be written to.

Any ideas?

Best Regards

Rod

As far as I remember, MakeCD registration is strongly connected with the path of the tool or even its icon (or both). I guess you need to delete the last version and install the new one from scratch. Then enter the serial code. But don't quote me on that.

I guess I would need to have a look at the logs. I mentioned how to collect them in the previous reply (for the beginning - it's a good thing to download and install the debug enabled version)

Yesterday a new version of MakeCD appeared. There has been removed the registration dialog box so the above problem of yours should disappear
