Trouble burning from hard drive.

Discussion in 'CloneDVD' started by richard gregory, Jul 16, 2022.

  1. I burned a disc to my hard drive. Trying to burn it to dvd, I get the message cannot obtain exclusive access and it will not allow me to proceed.
     
  2. I'm running win 10 as my os.
     
  3. It actually says cannot obtain exclusive access to the drive.

    That message means some other program is currently accessing the optical drive. Only 1 program can have "ownership" of an optical drive at a time, for the simple reason only 1 program can burn a disc at any one time. 2 different burning programs for example can't burn 2 discs simultaneously (at the same time) using only 1 drive. This message can occur if you have like multiple optical drives in your system (like i do), have multiple instances of CloneDVD2 open, but specified the same optical drive for them to use by accident instead of telling them each to burn to a different optical drive.

    Really? No way to click "ignore"?
     
  6. Thank you James and Chevron. I used msconfig to solve the problem. I disabled all the services, and it solved the problem. It always seems like I can learn something new with computers. Thank you again.
