Windows 7: ISO disc image burning always displaying Error Code: 0x80004005

ISO disc image burning always displaying Error Code: 0x80004005

Everytime try to burn an ISO file to a blank CD, I always set it to verify before finishing the disc image burning process and I always get the warning that the disc image didn't burn successfully and it has Error Code: 0x80004005.



I've tried burning disc image on a number of blank CD's but to my dismay, they all get wasted upon getting this error. This doesn't usually come before, unless the discs I used were of poor quality. I've tried different discs with different brands, different ISOs and just now a re-writable CD to no avail. I've been using the built in ISO disc image burner on Windows 7 and I also tried ImgBurn but they both report some sort of error on the disc verification process before the completion of the disc burning. I don't know how this is supposed to be. I was gonna burn some Linux ISOs but they just won't burn well.

There are 3 points of failure: The burning program, the disks, the burner.

You test to see if you get the same error using a different burning program (check).
You test to see if you get the same error using different media (check).
You test by using a different optical drive.

Optical drives are cheap (both meanings) and the heads can be knocked out of alignment too easily. Once that happens there is little to no chance of repairing it. It is just easier to get a new drive.

EDIT: be sure to try cleaning the drive. Use compressed air or vacuum to try and get any dust or hair out of the compartment (carefully). NEVER try to clean the lenses by touching them.

Well, I tried using IMGBurn and I still get an issue upon verification. I just uninstalled my DVD drive's driver and reinstalled it. I then tried to burn a Linux ISO and I still get that error. It could be a hardware issue though. I've had this drive for 4 and a half years.

Try cleaning it. If that doesn't work it's probably time for a new one.

Alternately, you could borrow one from another machine to test before buying a new one.
