    Redundancy Checksum Error EWQLSO Gold

    Well I was insalling EWQLSO Gold this weekend,and when I got to the last library file to copy, I got a Check Sum Redundancy ERROR on the file.

    Tried uusing CDCheck3, but looks like sectors are in error, or that it will take about a week to perform a recovery since the file is over 800 mb large.

    Anyone been through this before?

    I never had any problems on the DVD player before.
    No lense cleaning...
    I will check firmware updates,but its a laptop...

    Seems very unlikely that there would be a physical problem on the DVD or with the content. Could be a driver issue or conflict, perhaps some data got corrupted, something like that? I know that both my CD and DVD drives are extremely finicky when copying files.

    Thanks guys.

    It seems to only happen on one of my files that I was copying. I do see a small nick on the DVD, but its really soooo small. Im taking shots in the dark at this point. I dont have another DVD player around to test it on. Maybe on Monday. Then, I have to figure out how to move a 800MG file!

    There are no firmware or driver upgrades that I can find for:

    TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-R2512

    Alas, I emailed techsupport, but knowing soundsonline, it may be days...

    I tried using a recovery tool, but it found sector errors, and would take days to run on the file. ACK!

    Maybe i will pull a frys run tomorrow and pick up a cleaning kit, but I hardly ever use this drive

    Check and see how much space there is on your disk relative to the files. I had file corruption problems once due to lack of space. To wit...

    When I installed GPO I lost all my bookmarks (as well as experienced problems copying the last files) because there wasn't enough space for the copy operation. I had to delete files, resize and reallocate space to install successfully. I don't remember the details for sure but as I recall I needed considerably more space on the library's destination drive than I anticipated (I thought I had a fairly large margin) and possibly also more space for temporary files.

    Probably something else but who knows.

    Good luck

    Thanks Chet.

    Alas, I just purchased a nice 300 gig Firewire hard drive. Plenty of space. Just to be sure there wasnt something in the mix, I also attempted the copy onto my local drive. Have plenty of space there too..

    It may come down to bad DVD. I am going to 1) clean the lens. 2) try and find anothger DVD player somewhere...

    ACK!@@

    Re: Redundancy Checksum Error EWQLSO Gold

    Well friends:

    I tried running the lens cleaner CD and it failed to produce results. However, I broke down and bought an external HP DVD writer dvd640e with USB capability. I thought I would be able to utilize it for other things around here.

    Anyway it worked!

    What a strange thing?

    Now onto my next problem - what to use with Finale, so I can use multiple instances of GOLD, SILVER, or ATMOSPHERE? I assume its not possible out of the box - in that you can only load one instance per sound card? When I try and load more than one, the other instances do not produce output.

    V-Stack an option?

    Thanks for your help

    It's still probably the disc itself, and the new drive is just more tolerant of the nick in the surface.

    Stefan:

    Really? Interesting...hmmm. I have no way of testing this? How to know...

    Wasnt a total waste of $. The new HP DVDR is damn fast! Took less than 1 minute to copy close to 1 gig file. Bit clunky...COMPAQ like box, but it works, and I can use it to trasfer data to my other computers using USB rather easily.

    Well, all the discs are made at the same place (I presume). So there *should* be no difference among the discs. Drives use different lasers and optics 'n' such. I know, for example, that some drives do better with CD-Rs and DVD-Rs than others. This was more true in the "old" days of darker, green-gold discs.

    Anyway, if the new drive is useful for other things, then you made the right move! If *all* the discs had failed, I would have blamed your drive.
