    Error message when writing to CD-R (XP Version 5.1 SP 2)

    I was trying to back up some files (by simply copying and pasting them) to a CD-R. My Dell computer has something pre-installed called Sonic DLA that offers to act as an interface when dealing with CD's and DVD's. I used Sonic DLA to format the CD; then I copied and pasted the files; then (following Sonic DLA's instructions) I chose their "Make compatible" command. During the execution of this command, I got an error message. The next day I tried again, with the same result.

    Here is (most of) the error message:

    A problem has been detected and your computer has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer…

    Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

    Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates…

    *** STOP 0x0000007E (0XC000005, 0X806FF94F, 0XF792CC30, 0XF792C92C)

    Also, when my computer re-started, it referred to the following files:

    COCUME~1JEFLOCALS~1TempWERd34d.dir00Mini081108-01.dmp
    COCUME~1JEFLOCALS~1TempWERd34d.dir00sysdata.xml

    and SpyBot reported an attempt to change the Registry (Kernel Fault Check).

    Is a BIOS update the place to start? If so, do I start on Dell's site or that of the BIOS manufacturer? If not, where should I start?

    Thanks.

    PS: forgot one more item in the error message:

    Beginning dump of memory.
    Physical memory dump complete

    Contact your system administrator or...for further assistance.

    You can try a BIOS update. You should definitely get it from Dell. You should also check for a Sonic DLA update.

    0x0000007E XP - Live Search show lots of possibilities for this error. Is there more to the error message?

    You suppose to use CD-RW, DVD-RW, or DVD+RW disks with Drive Letter Access (DLA) as virtual hard drives.

    CD-R, DVD-R, or DVD+R could not be used as virtual hard drives. By formatting such disks you make them unusable; an attempt to use them as virtual hard drives crashes your system.

    Re: Error message when writing to CD-R (XP Version

    Really? So when I insert a new CD-R disc in the drive, I can simply write to it without formatting it first?

    Sorry I didn't answer earlier.

    Yes, it is correct. Just insert new blank CD-R, and then in Windows Explorer (or another third-party CD/DVD writing program) drag and drop all files and folders you want to write to CD.

    Use blank CD-R only once for writing! (Practically, you can "add" files once or twice to the used CD-R, but I would strongly recommend don't do it!)
    Use CD-RW for multiple sessions (adding or removing files) or creating a new content on the same CD.
