Default Error message for image burn

Hi all,
Sometimes I get this error message during a burn, but the burn is usually alright.

Device Control (FSCTL_Lock_Volume) failed
Device [1:1:0] Sony DVD RW DRU820A 1:0b (e (ATA)
Unable to lock for exclusive access
Reason: access is denied

It stops until I choose to either cancel, try agian or continue. I just hit continue and it keeps going.

Its just annoying.

Thanks for your help.

Something else has "got your drive". You can hunt down what this might be, using Process Explorer, or re-boot.

Thanks. I know my drive is bad and is dying as we speak. Just bought another one today. I'll know if it was the drive after I install the new one. I thought maybe I didn't download the program correctly.

It's not your drive at fault, it's that another program is also using it - preventing ImgBurn for gaining 'Exclusive' access to it.

You need to find that other program and close it down.
