0x80070057 Parameter is Incorrect when copying .DAT file
Good day! I've been having this issue for quite sometime now.
I usually rent out Video CDs, but at times I can't watch them right away so
what I usually do is to copy all DAT files to my HDD for later viewing and
return the videos; However when I tried copying the DAT files I got an error
"0x80070057: The parameter is incorrect," although Media Player can play the
movie just fine. That means there isn't a problem with the optical drive's
Here's what I have performed:
- Copy DAT files in Safe Mode, no go
- Copy using command console, no go
- Uninstalled Roxio Creator DE, no go
- Reseated sATA cable connection on the DVD-RW drive and mobo, no go.
- Uninstalled DVD-RW drive in Device Manager, no go.
- Updated my mobo's BIOS, no go.
- Attempted to copy non-DAT file, OK.
- Deleted Upper and Lower Filter, no go.
- Reinstalled Windows Vista Ultimate, OK
But the problem appears again after a couple of weeks after re-installing
Windows Vista Ultimate. The last thing I remember installing is Microsoft
Virtual PC 2007. I have searched the web for posibble causes and most of them
points to image mounting which MS Virtual PC has buit-in.
Do you think this has to do with my DVD-RW drive being sATA? I hope anyone
can help fix this issue. This PC is configured for low power home
entertainment ans SQL Query testing. Thanks in advance.
