Creating Temporary Internet Files

Get AnyDVD HD and copy any DVD or Blu-ray disc with ease!

I've been messing with DVDXCopy and my system for nearly two weeks. I've tried many different setups and received many different errors which I've fixed. I've burned one DVD successfully. I can't figure a fix to my current problem.

DXC rips the DVD and is about to go into the burn phase when I get a popup message. It reads "Cannot create file C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\log\gearworks.log"

When I hit OK I get the blue screen of death. Are there any ideas of how to get around this?

System
Soyo motherboard w/400 MHz FSB
768 MB pc133 sdram
2 GB Celeron Processor
Radeon 64MB DDR video card
Sound blaster card
Firewire card
SIIG ATA/133 card
80 GB main drive as master on IDE1
CD Burner as slave on IDE1
16x DVD ROM as master on ATA card IDE1
HP 300i burner as master on ATA card IDE2
120 GB second drive as slave on ATA card IDE2
(Drive set up with 90 GB hard drive for general use and 25 GB partition to be used only for DXC temp file only)

I have set the ATA Card and 2nd HD up based on info found in this forum. My rip was much faster using this setup but now I get the message as stated above.

One final item. When I use file manager to double click on C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files I get the searching flashlight, but I'm able to access the IE5.0 file that shows up on the left side of the screen. Is there corruption in the Temp directory?

Two suggestions. First, I would upgrade to IE6. Second, are you saying that your computer cannot even find the directory "C:\Windows\Temp\Temporary Internet Files"? Are you trying to locate it using Windows Explorer?

I will try upgrading it. It's there and I can see it with Windows Explorer when I click the folder button and open it in the left hand window. On the right hand side it just gives me the flashlight. I may try disk cleanup to get rid of everything in this folder.

The message comes when DXC tries to write its log file just prior to burning.

I've since read on this forom that DXC should be removed before upgrading. I did not do that when I upgraded last weekend. I will try that tonight.

Good suggestion, ireland. buysmanw will still have a problem with his computer, but DVDXCopy should work for him that way.

Sorry, I missed it. I'm running windows ME. I upgraded IE, removed/reinstalled DXC, ran disk cleanup and still get the cannot create message mentioned above. I click OK and a few seconds later it's blue screen of death message "Error OE :0028:C1A93164" everytime.

I also changed the temp to the C: directory as suggested...same end result.

I initially had the ROM as a master on the primary ATA/133 and the burner as the slave on the same cable (hadn't yet purchased the wd 120 Gig drive) and did not get the blue screen, but it was slow, had buffer issues, and would fail either part way through the burn or at the end.

I've done the ATA primary master ROM , ATA secondary master burner with the 20 gig partion (on the second drive) as the slave on the recommendation of one these threads. I'm going to try burning the current set up (ROM as master on primary ATA and burner on secondary ATA) with the 2nd drive disconnected using the C:\temp for the log file.

Sorry for being so wordy

If this were my system I would:

1) Physically move the 80gb boot disk and the 120 gb drives to the SIIG ATA/133 controller.

2) Put the HP300i as master on IDE1; 16x dvd rom as master on IDE2

3) Reset BIOS to boot from the ATA/133 controller (probably identified as SCSI in BIOS). Reboot.

4) Go into DEVICE MANAGER and make sure both the cdrom and the burner were set for DMA (maybe on IDE1 and IDE2 cotrollers instead of in the cdrom drive section).

5) Try to create LOG <DIR> under C:\WINDOWS|Temporary Internet Files

6) Attempt to use DVDXCOPY again. Remove and re-install if necessary.

Any improvement?

Xgasman: Thanks for the input. I will try it, but first I have one question for anyone who knows. I see alot of talk about DMA for drives on this forum. I know it stands for direct memory access. When I look at my two DVD drives (on the ATA card) there is no option for DMA. My CD burner which is a slave on IDE 1 on the motherboard does show an option for DMA. Is this a function of the drives and their drivers, or a function of the protocols for the ATA card vs the motherboard's onboard IDE ports. In other words is Xgasman saying that by changing the drives to the motherboard I'll be able to set them as DMA? Creating the directory that is causing me problems is a good idea. Thanks, buysmanw.

On my system the motherboard ide controllers are supportive of bus mastering so dma is listed as long as you have the correct drivers. My ATA card does not list bus mastering as it is listed under SCSI controller. But it's designed more for use with harddrives and not ATAPI devices such as cdroms, etc. Try it and see if it helps your system. If it does or doesn't let us know. We can still try to help you.

Thanks to all who posted on this message and on this forum. You were a great help. Xgasman you were right on. I did as you suggested and burned on the first try. I don't know how to tell what speed I'm ripping and burning at, but If I'm burning a movie to two DVD's I can rip each in about 15-20 minutes and burn in about 25-30.

Thanks again, buysmanw

buysmanw,

Glad to see you were able to get your system working. Sounds like you're getting 2x out of it, which is good as long as you're able to play the backups.

I was wrong. They don't all play back right. I have a 7 month old 5 disk, Component video, Toshiba unit that won't recognize the disks. My other player is a 9 month old Phillips single disk player that recognizes the disks and will play for 20-30 minutes before the picture freezes and won't restart. All this is on DVD+R. I did a DVD+RW (2.4x) and it works fine on both players. Is this a funtion of the 4x DVD+R speed on the 300i? If it is, is there a way to slow it down? I've read on the forum that 4x is good for data but will not work for movies.

I have a HP200i at work. It has always worked great from the start. The DVD's work on both players. It maxes out at 2.4x no matter what it's burning

With the speed you are reporting, you are only burning at 2.4x. Is your burner at work using the same burning software as your system at home? If so, since your +RWs work but not your +Rs, I would try a different brand of blank DVD, preferably the same brand you use at work. If you are using a different burning program at work, try installing and using it at home to see if that helps. The other thing you could try is to trade the burners out of one computer into the other.

Sounds like a lot to try, but you know you can burn and read with burned DVDs from work, and with +RWs at home. Just have to find out what the difference is between the two systems.

buysmanw,
It kind of sounds like maybe the DXC program folder, or files inside the folder, may have been marked as "Read Only" somehow..

The "gearworks.log" is usually located in the "log" directory inside the DXC folder.

C:\Program Files\321Studios\DVDXCopy\log

Try right clicking on the gearworks.log and looking at its properties. If it is set to "Read Only" that may be the problem.

If this is the case, go ahead uncheck that option and save the changes, and then try the process again.

Before I looked into burning software issues I decided to try different media. I went from Ritek? DVD's to FujiFilm DVD+R media and have not had any problems. I've copied 10 movies now and have not wasted any DVD's and they all work on both of my players. The only problem, just an annoyance, is that after it rips the movie my ATI player tries to open the movie and sometimes causes a blue screen of death. If I could keep any/all players from making themselves the default things would be perfect.

Thanks for the help in getting this thing to work.

The wife was getting worried that that the $$$ spent on the burner was going to be flushed.

buysmanw,
You can go into preferences for that ATI player and change the default to something else. I'm not all that familiar with ME, but somewhere you can disable the auto insert notification for that drive so nothing will come up.
