I have burned numerous home videos to DVDs with WMM2. I recently started getting the message "Movie Maker cannot create the DVD because an error occurred" during the burn cycle (dvd ejects). Exactly same thing yzrider3 posted in January '07 ---

"Then I went to save to dvd. so then its saving movie so it can be copied to a dvd. So it does that, then I start the burn. then about halfway throgh, while it says converting files, it gets half way in about 30 seconds, then it pauses, then the bars fill up and it kicks it out and says "Movie Maker cannot create the DVD because an error occurred." I can get the movie to play, no problems all the way through in any program that supports video, I just cant get it to burn." - yzrider, January 2007

I checked MS Support and they say the reason for the message is because:

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:

You use Fast User Switching to change user accounts before you try to burn the DVD.
The account that you switched to does not have sufficient permissions to use the DVD burn engine that is used by Windows Movie Maker. To burn a DVD, the user account must have administrator permissions.
Neither of the above conditions are true in my case. I thought there may be some conflicts with recent installation of some software I installed for my son's mp3 but I uninstalled it and still same problem. All Windows updates have been performed. I had three user accounts setup on my PC.... Read more

Oh, also--

I have a RemoteApp server setup (Windows 2012 R2) with SSO enabled. This RemoteApp server is for internal use only. I have no issues with any of my clients running Windows 7 or above. On Windows XP however, I can only connect to the RemoteApp session once
and then I get the error An authentication error has occurred (Code: 0xc00002fd). If I reboot the PC, it will again work once and then get the error.
The other thing we discovered is that when you first close the RemoteApp session, the mtsc.exe process remains active for 30 seconds or so. As long as that is active, I can re-enter the RemoteApp session multiple times. The moment I kill that process, I
get the error and must reboot.
I'm pretty sure something is being cached on the client side, but every lead I have found has not resulted in a resolution.
Anyone have any ideas? (Btw, "get off of XP" is not an option at this time. lol)
Any assistance would be great.

Greetings everyone.
Last Tuesday when I turned my computer on, I got the message ďA disk read error occurred, press crtrl+alt+delete to restartĒ. Since then I have been searching online for a way to get my computer back up & running.
The specs of my computer:

Dell Inspiron 9100 Notebook
Windows XP Pro SP3
P4 @ 3.2 Ghz w/ Hyper Threading
1 gb Memory
160 gb Western Digital PATA/IDE HD
(Replaced original 80 gb HD in May 08 b/c too small)
Removable internal DVD/CD-RW drive (& a removable internal floppy disk)
Purchased in Oct. 04.

When I installed the new HD back in May, I used Apricorn EZ Gig II & the included HD enclosure to copy the contents of the old HD onto the new one.

I first ran the onboard Dell diagnostics; it did a full system scan (from the processor to the memory to the HD) it told me everything was fine.
I then ran the WD hard drive utility from a floppy disk. I ran both the quick & full tests and it told me there were no problems.

Since the HD seems to be alright, Iíve been wondering if something has corrupted the Master Boot Record. I do my best to keep my system in check; security-wise I run Norton 360 2.0 & Ad-Aware 2008 (thereís more I can do though, I know). I donít think it could be malware, but who knows.

Windows Mail suddenly does not send or receive messages. When I attempt to send a message, I receive the following error, "The message could not be sent. An error has occurred." When I click the Send and Receive button, the pop-up box comes up, but not long enough for me to read anything. However, it appears to complete the send/receive process with no errors. I have had issues in the past and often received an error number, but not this time. When I go into my accounts, I have changed the password to my incoming server to the wrong one to see if it recognizes the error and have also changed port numbers and still receive no error. I have attempted working offline and double-checked to ensure it recognizes the wireless internet connection - which it does.

I do not currently have and have never had any anti-virus programs installed on my computer. I have logged into my email through my browser and deleted all emails from all of my folders, closed Windows Mail and then re-started it to no avail.

I would just upgrade to Windows Live Mail, but I already did that once before when I was experiencing other problems with Windows Mail, and that program has also stopped working correctly so I had to go back to Windows Mail. Therefore, it appears that if I cannot get this issue resolved, I will be stuck using my browser (which is not very user-friendly) and my iPhone. Needless to say, I am quite frustrated with Windows Mail and Vista!

PLEASE HELP!

A:Windows Mail - "The message could not be sent. An error has occurred."

First let's fix the major problem of not having an antivirus! For now please download Malwarebytes and run a full, updated scan. Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download That should clean up any bad software on your computer. And I would imagine you have a lot... There are plenty of good free antivirus programs out there, most of the people on this site highly recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

After running malwarebytes, see if your mail problem is still occurring.

Personally, I just have to recommend you switch to using Mozilla Thunderbird, instead of Windows Mail. It's very clean and easy to use. And free. Check it out. Mozilla Thunderbird That's just a personal suggestion, you don't have to if you really like Windows Mail

We have several users on a Windows 2012 RDS server. Recently two started having an issue logging in. They VPN to a Sonicwall firewall (which is successful...we can ping the server).
When they try to connect using the Windows RDP client we are now getting "An internal error occurred". I cannot find out where details of this error are so It's VERY frustrating to try to fix based on "something went wrong" as the definition.
I need to get this working ASAP. How do I track down where this is failing?
Note: This is a Sonicwall NSA 250M firewall with sufficient VPN licenses. We can PING the remote server through the VPN tunnel but we cannot seem to get folders by opening Windows File Explorer and typing in the server IP (e.g. \\172.65.44.18). It times
out (and there are shares on that server so we SHOULD see SOMETING). 
Is this a sudden firewall issue or something to do with RDP server licensing or something else? I have no clue where to even start investigating this.

On a 4-year old laptop running Windows 7, I've been burning, in Windows Explorer, Verbatim brand DVD-DL discs rated at 8x, on an external USB Panasonic UJ-220 blu-ray burner that can burn DVD-DL at 2.4x, at 2.4x (the only burn speed choice that Windows Explorer offers), with no problem.

Now I'm trying to do the same, with the same external USB burner and with discs from the same cake, on a 1-year old desktop, also running Windows 7. Both the laptop and the desktop are running 64-bit Windows 7.

On the desktop, I get this error:

=========================================
There was a problem burning this disc

The write speed for the recordable disc is either too fast or too slow for your CD or DVD burner. Insert a recordable disc that has a different write speed, adn then try again.
=========================================

Then it offers choices to try with a different disc, save the temp files for later, etc.

I've tried with 3 discs, and got the same error with all of them.

The UJ-220 has two USB plugs; one for data & power, and one for just additional power. I thought maybe the burner wasn't getting enough power from the cable that's just for power. So I plugged that cable into the laptop, leaving the data cable in the desktop. Same problem.


Burning a disc rated at 8x at 2.4x, in a burner rated at 2.4x, should be no problem, but even if it was, why does it work fine with the laptop?

A:Error burning DVD with Windows Explorer: "disc to fast or too slow"

Hi GregL,

Normally I would say that is because of media incompatibility with the burner (some brands just don't get on with each other), but reading through your post this can't be the problem as you're using the same discs and burner on both machines. The only thing I can think of at the moment is that the drive is being picked up by your laptop as USB 2.0 but only USB 1.1 by your desktop.

CHKDSK, run either by scheduled during restart, or in Safe Mode Command Line, or from a separate USB boot disk, all show the exact same allegedly "fixed" errors over and over again. They never actually get fixed!

Code:
An unspecified error occurred (766f6c756d652e63 461).
Fortunately, the 64-bit Windows 7 Pro boot disk never shows an error, but I get these repeated and allegedly "fixed" CHKDSK errors, for example, when I'm trying to clone my system partition to any of a few different disk drives and before the cloning can complete I get one or more CHKDSK errors - even though there are no CHKDSK errors from the source disk/partition!

I can't access safe mode, it just won't let me, nor can I reinstall XP (it says "system is analysing your hardware" and then the screen goes blank and nothing happens). I've done diagnostics five times and apparently nothing's wrong.

A:"A Disc Read Error has Occurred. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL to Restart"

You may have to Format your hrd drive and clear off the old installation of windows first.

You cant get to the area of installation that would allow you to do that. See if you can download from the hard drive manufacturer, who-ever that may be, thier hard disc maintenance tools. Such as Seatools for Seagate, or MaxBlast for Maxtor. Creating a bootable disc of which ever one youneed to use you should be able to partition and refomat the hard drive as these will boot with out attempting to boot from your hard drive. Also you can run a HDD test from the same disc telling you if you have a gone bad hard drive.

Hi,

I tried to install windows 7 on my computer and it caused an error and would not load. So i tried to install a fresh copy of windows XP SP3. When the computer performed it's normal reboot during the installation the computer hangs during the BIOS and gives the following error message "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart".

Any suggestions on how to fix this.

A:"A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart"

It sounds like the HDD is failing. Restart with a Windows disc again and do a Full Format, not a Quick Format. The full format will identify any bad sectors and mark them as such and not copy data to them. If there are too many bad sectors, then it will not format. You will need to buy a new HDD.

My computer has recently started giving me an error message that says "A disk read error occurred. Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart." during startup.

The first time this came up I took it into the repair shop the morning after. They turned the computer on, it started normally, and after keeping it overnight they returned it to me saying that they could find nothing wrong with it.

It worked normally for about 2 days after that and then when I was using it the system suddenly became unresponsive. I was forced to turn it off via the button on the front of my tower, and when I turned it back on the disk read error message came back up.
The next morning when I turned it on it was fine.

This process of it becoming unresponsive, giving me the error, and being fine by the next morning continued for a couple of days until now when it only shows me the error.

Help?

System Specs
Model: Gateway E4300 6-Bay Desktop
OS: Windows XP Professional SP3
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.00GHz (2CPUs)
Memory: 3GB RAM
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT
Drives: C:/,D:/(backup),E:/(external)
 

A:"A disk read error occurred. Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart."

Do you have backups? First thing I would suspect is the hard drive is dying, or at the very least, some important boot sector info is going bad. Try a utility boot disk of any variety like Parted Magic Live CD or make a UBCD4Win CD if you have access to a windows XP disc or image, or use a Linux LiveCD, to see if you can get access to the contents of the drive if need be. Or alternately, pull the drive and attach it as a secondary data drive to another system and see if its readable.

Based on the results of your attempts at access, further advice can be given as to what to do about the drive if that indeed turns out to be the problem.

Hi, I've repeatedly attempted this, but always get

An error occurred during setup. Restart your computer, then run setup again.

This is an all too typical message you can find associated with many Epson products.

I've tried:
Clean boot
Safe mode (install enabled)
Using an Epson removal tool I finally obtained after my 5th chat with Epson.
An Epson fix deleting temp folder and looking for setup.exe that never appeared.
On my 4th chat I was advised to consult Microsoft.
Manually removing all Epson folders and registry entries I can find.
Disabling firewall and AV

The same CD installed ok on my 6 year-old laptop (both run Windows x64).

I've found a couple of other fixes found by someone looking at the log file.
I've run SFC /Scannow - ok

At best, the scanner is recognised as being connected when plugged in, and appears with a yellow trangle under 'Other Devices' in Device Manager

Any ideas welcome - I'd like to use my new scanner
Thanks

A:Epson V550 driver installation "An error occurred during setup"

Hi, I've found a solution, albeit a tad obscure. Short story:
1. Install the driver normally, noting it fails, and the device is recognised when plugged in and appears in Device Manager under 'Other devices' with a yellow triangle.
2. There right click the device, update driver and browse to the CD used to install the driver initially, and to the driver folder.
Let the update run.

The scanner should now be installed.

From:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...?page=2&auth=1

which offers another approach too.

There are quite a few reports of Epson driver installations (various devices) failing with this message. Epson chat eventually referred me to Microsoft.... saying the original message was a Windows error.

I believe this post was posted before but i could not find the solution for it...

When I try to connect with the wireless network through Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless, the following error message appears:
"An internal database error occurred when saving/updating the profile"

I tried roll back and re-installing the drivers but none worked...

the spec is,

Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG

let me know if you guys got any idea with this problem...

thanks a lot guys.
 

A:"An internal database error occurred when saving/updating the profile"

Dear Animex:

I had exactly the same problem, with the same hardware. This is how I fixed it.

01. Take a System Restore.
02. Use Add/Remove programs to remove Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Software.
03. Rename C:\Program Files\Intel to C:\Program Files\Intel-Old.
04. Reinstall the software. I downloaded the latest version, 11.1.1.11.
05. Reboot when asked to.

Now, everything works.

HTH,

I have a home built machine with an Gigabyte Mother board, 4 GB of RAM, Pentium D 3.4 GHz proc, Zalman 650 watt power supply running Winoidws 7 32 bit with all the latest updates, however, BIOS is unconfirmed. OS drive is a 650 GB SATA with plenty of space (at least 400 GB free) and the CD/DVD Rom is IDE.

My GPU card needed cleaning, so I removed it by disconnecting the Mobo power cable, the GPU powe cable (to the card) and the ATX 12v cable (this was necessary to remove the GPU card).

After cleaning and replacing the card, and assuring all the connectors were securly fastened, I received the above error.

Windows will occassionally get past the start up logo and the screen will go black with only the mouse present (slow start up?) OR the drive light will just be lit solid with the occasional access flicker.

What I have tried:
Ran the OS System Recovery Utility from the Boot disc. Took a while, said it fixed somethings, but still get above error.
Reverted Mobo BIOS settings to default.
Tried to run CMD.exe in the syetm recover tools in the Win 7 boot disc for dskchk and run "FIXMBR" or "FIXBOOT", but since I know nothing about DOS, couldn't figure out how to get it to check my SATA drive or past X:\services.

A:"A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart."

Using another system - one that that one cannot touch (no offense), download Killdisk and use ImgBurn to burn the CD-R or DVD-R ISO (or other - I always use -R).

Then boot your system up with KillDisk and you'll see the menu - 1 of the options (apologies, don't recall which off hand) will allow you to view partitions to see what's on them.

If you can boot from that, then use non-MS OS (Linux ?) to copy files out. I am unfamiliar with Linux and procedures, but I will be glad to request help if you can view the drive with KillDisk and find files you wish to try & save.

That was some "bickering thread", BTW - I guess some need HUGE fonts like that either to emphasize their point (like some YELLING) - or maybe they lost their glasses!

One thing I can tell you - the error message that you are receiving is IMHO purely related to the DVD/CD drive - CTRL-ALT-DELETE will not re-boot the hard drive. It is from the days of DOS and floppy drives. You are probably receiving that message b/c the system cannot find what it needs on the hard drive to boot - i.e., it is not recognizing it a MS Windows installation. It also could be the media - the DVD/ CD.

KillDisk - http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm

Make bootable KillDisk ISO CD w/ ImgBurn -
ImgBurn - http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

For info - KillDisk WILL NOT automatically start deleting files when you boot with it - you'll see the menu.

Hello,
well the title pretty much says it all.
I had been getting BSODs always, but I knew how to 'control' them (since I newly installed 7, I just had to start my PC, and once Windows ran and I could login, I restarted it.. and everything worked fine.. no BSOD). However, this time, I just felt like giving it a try the first time (login in without the restart), and well, I shouldn't have.

I got a BSOD, which by then I thought was normal, but then when the PC restarted, at the black controllers-screen I get the message "A disk read error occurred - Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart".

This I couldn't avoid: if I restarted I got to the very same screen and so on; I've searched for help in other places (some mention changing the slave/master functions of the hard drive and so on.., but none work), so I come to you.

Please, I urgently need your help. Thank you in advance.

Hello there and welcome to the forums Doomdaddy!

If you want to be absolutely sure whether your drive is gutted/or still recoverable, try and pull it out of the laptop and place it into an external USB caddy/enclosure, and plug it into a working system to see whether the system can detect it or not...

You can also try to reseat the the drive in the laptop by taking it out and putting it back in again after a cold shutdown..

Hello everyone,

I would like to thank you for this great site. It helped me to fix my problems: when I tried to start Windows Explorer, or My Computer or Control Panel I got the message "An error has occurred in Internet Explorer. Interner Explorer will now close". And I could not start any of these programs.

Symantec Antivirus 8.1 and AVG 6.0 have reported several viruses, and they were claiming to be succesfull in puting them in quarantine and cleaning them. However, the problems persisted. I have run Windows installation to repair it - and I have re-installed Explorer - with no more luck.

Finally, I found your site, and install and run Ad-Aware. I have removed all spywares indicated by Ad-Aware, and the problem was fixed.

I believe that these problems were due to the site SecurityIGuard.com ! This site was occurring every time when I tried to run Internet Explorer. They are in a list of 'suspect' anti-spyware. It seems that they can do more than just run spywares in local computers. On my machine they broke Explorer - and really put me under stress
Can anyone do anything against such guys ?

Thank you very much for your site,
Ioana Goga

So yesterday, my computer was in sleep mode, working fine. I was vacuuming my room and I blew a circuit, no biggie, happens all the time, so I turn off the vacuum and lights, went down to the fuse box, and flipped the switch back. I haven't tried to use my computer until I finished vacuuming. Once I finished, I sat down at my computer and turn it on.
Now normally, when I turn the computer on, it shows the motherboard screen, then goes to a black screen with white text which says "Verifying DMI Pool Data ............" at the bottom and then it goes to the windows start up screen. This time, after being stuck on the black and white screen for a while, under the "Verifying DMI Pool Data ............" It says "A disk read error occurred", "Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart". I though that was strange, so I did what it said, Ctrl+Alt+Delete and it restarted. Same message. I tried repeating this several times, nothing new is happening. I use the power button on my computer and shut it off, then turn it back on again. A different black and white screen showed up with an error message and said to press enter to continue. I pressed enter, nothing happens, so I shut off the computer and turn it back on.

hi, do you have a diagnostics partition on your inspiron, on mine I press F12 as the computer boots. If you do, run the extended test on the hard drive. At this point I should ask if your important files/pics etc are backed up as any test on a failing hard drive is intensive. You ask if your hard drive "just crashed", have you tried restarting to see if you have access.

The only anti virus software I have on my machine is AVG which I can just about run but after the search it says it cant find any virus!!!!

Hi guys,

The IDE controller on my old motherboard kicked the bucket last week, so I've built a new computer. I have replaced my mobo, RAM, CPU, and graphics card, and have purchased a new OS. I've retained my old case, wireless card, hard disk and DVD writer.

The problem I'm having is that my system won't boot. It POSTs fine, recognises both the hard disk and the DVD writer, and Windows 7 64bit installation runs and completes without fault. However once Windows setup is complete, the system reboots, and when it tries to bood from the hard disk it give me:

a disk read error occurred. press ctrl+alt+delete to restart.Click to expand...

Ctrl+Alt+Del reboots but throws up the same error.

I've since tried the following...
Another IDE cable. No change.
Another brand new, packet-never-opened IDE cable. Still no change.
Thinking it might be my removable drive bay (I run my HDD in a removable bay so I can swap it out and setup a different OS without messing with my primary OS) I took the drive out and connected it directly. No change.
Tried it on 2 spare HDDs. Same error. I know all 3 drives were working fine last Monday. One of them was my primary drive in my old system, running Win7 RC1 until Tuesday when I formatted to go back to XP, as Win7 RC had commenced its 2hr shutdown cycle.

So I know the client machine is configured correctly. I am believe this was working on these same machines in Nov 2013. Coincidentally the Win 7 machines will no longer rdp if the server machine is on a Wifi network, only a cabled one. On Wifi, the RDP session fails to fully connect (it establishes a partial connection.) I can live without Wifi connections. It is probably irrelevant to the problem I'm trying to solve.

I have scoured the internet unsuccessfully for a solution.

Any suggestions?
