Error 30C00

Post by jaloganjr » Tue Dec 15, 2009 10:49 pm

Error 30C00.
I have searched forums and found this as a subject but no real explanation. Does anyone know why I get this error---only occasionally? Definitely plenty of space on the disc available, burning at slowest speed possible and yet the CD seems to burn until the final step when the error notification appears.
All songs will PLAY in MM and, although I use a wireless network with several hard drives, the songs and links appear to be fine.

Is there a setting I should change? Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.

Are you using the latest version of MM (3.2)? Because the latest version should say something like "Error 30C00 - WRITE ERROR" if you still get it.

Am using Media Monkey Gold ver 4.121.25.895 with Windows 10 (up-to-date on patches) and a 12 month old PC and also getting this error with increasing frequency over the last 3-4 months when burning audio CDs for Xmas. CD burning would stop at 2% or 3% completed. It would take 5 or 6 attempts before I got a completed CD. Also thought it was a media or drive error so use several blank disks from two different packs of disks. Frustrated I looked up error 30C00 on Google and found it was an error possibly caused by time delays between Media Monkey and the CD disk writing device. Putting on old IT programmers hat on and looking at the PC performance stats in Task manager, it looked like Media Monkey was being too busy scanning my 57,000 audio and video files in background. Media Monkey is only designed for max 50,000 files so I thought I would help it scan. I stopped doing any other work in Media Monkey (like listening to music and downloading new music files at the same time), stopped Media Monkey from scanning continuously (in FILE, then ADD/SCAN, then click off SCAN CONTINUOUSLY) as well as cancelled all Google windows and any WINDOWS EXPLORER windows (which also do work in background through the Disk Processor. Suddenly my CDs started to burn OK again (most of the time). So if you have a media library bigger than the max 50,000 file limit, you need to help it along. Hope this helps.

There is no file limit in MediaMonkey, there are users with more than 1 million files. However the heavy load MediaMonkey was doing simultaneously may have been the problem.
