I'm unable after the 4.06 upgrade to mount Blindwrite 5 .B5T files and then the DT icon in systemtray doesn't respond! Only after a reboot!

I had a similar problem after installed DT v4.06. I can't even load an Iso file. I received the buffer error notification, after that DT locked. I tried to go back DT v4.03 with the same resoults. I have never had a similar problem before, only after installed new version. (Win XP sp2 installed).

What kind of buffer error? Post exact messages please.
And where is image located? Device, controller etc.

The message is "Unable to mount image. Invalid user buffer."

The odd thing is I could mount that image with the old version.

I tried some others images with the same results and as I said before when I tried to go back to the older version the problem wasn't solved.

The image is located in my HD.

I have no problem on IDE HD(non removable).

I have the same problem. I can not mount an image file no matter what type it is.
When I try to mount an image file either with DTools 4.0.6 or Alcohol 1.9.4521 /both use sptd 1.29/ I receive

"Unable to mount image. Invalid user buffer."
DTools freezes completely and can not be killed through Task Manager. Shortly after that I've got a BSOD stating:
"A kernel thread terminated while holding a mutex".

WinXP Pro SP2
HDD 2x120GB Raid 0 on ITE IT8212 ATA RAID Controller
File System is NTFS

No such problem with DTools 4.0.3 nor with any previous Alcohol release /sptd version is 1.25/
I think there is a bug in sptd 1.29
Additionally I downgraded to sptd 1.25 and dtools 4.0.3 and everything works fine.

Andareed,

apologize for not receiving the files.
With 4.03 before they works fine.
But I can't mount every image type after upgrade to 4.06.
I tried to downgrade to 4.03 then with the same result (Invalid User Buffer).
My Config:
XP PRO SP2 german, AMD 3500+, 1GB Ram,
Asus A8V Deluxe (VIA K8T800Pro)

VIA VT82C571 IDE Controller
HighPoint HPT370A Ultra-ATA/100 RAID Controller
VIA VT8237 PCI-ISA Bridge - DriveStation SATA RAID Controller
Promise FastTrak 378 Serial-ATA/150 IDE RAID Controller

djbobo:

If uninstalling 4.06 and reinstalling 4.03 will fix your problem for the time being, after uninstalling DT 4.06, download and run http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/download.php?mode=Download&id=87]SPTDinst X86 (http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/download.php?mode=Download&id=87) to remove SPTD 1.29.

Then if you download DT 4.03 it will install SPTD 1.25. This won't obviously help you get 4.06 to work but might be all you were hoping for at the moment.

Hope I was of some help. I have the same problem with 4.06.

If you have minidump after this BSOD please send it to support.


So, if you downgrade to 4.03 with SPTD 1.29 issue is still not resolved? I.e. it is SPTD problem?

thenational, Thanks for your respond.

Unfortunately, uninstallation of the SPTD 1.29 or the old SPTD driver with the /remove parameter, won't fix the problem. I'm not be able more to use DT (4.03 or 4.06). I have no problem with 4.06 on the same PC with Win XP 64bit version.

Is image stored on compressed/encrypted NTFS volume?

Yes, on a compressed volume.

Try mounting the image from a non-compressed volume.

Hello AnalCobra. Thank you for the fast respond.
Unfortunately, I've got the same error on a FAT32 volume, which is not compressed

I have no issues after downgrade to V3.47. All images working properly.
But after upgrade again to 4.06, I've got the same error message (Invalid User Buffer)

Do the uninstall 4.06 + SPT uninstall, then install 4.03 (it must install the 1.25 STP driver, with its reboot)

The link a few posts earlier points to an 1.25 uninstall, I am not sure whether it works right, I used the 1.29 uninstall too I "captured" off the current alcohol demo version.

So now your program files are the right version, but the registry is still crapped.
If you use http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/ you can go back to the registry you had before (if you make a backup regulary enough like I do), I backup with an desktop link: C:\Programme\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE %SystemRoot%\ERDNT\AutoBackup\#Date# /noconfirmdelete

Then you can restore the registry by booting from XP CD with recovery console.

This is how I got a working rollback to SPT 1.25 with daemon 4.03. (Okay, I had to reactivate my windows again..)

This ERUNT tool is like the scanreg tool from windows9x, it can keep several days and many versions of your registry as backup, but due to dumbness on M$ side with windows2000 and XP it only keeps one ".bak version which gets created once you successfully logged on.

You could also try the Windows XP restore point to get where you were before the upgrade.

How I got into my problem: I tried a newer alcohol version which installed the SPT driver 1.29, daemon tools still were 4.03. After that I was not able to mount ANY image. Upgrading to 4.06 did not help as you might guess.

I was lucky that I was suspicious enough to klick my "autobackup" icon on the desktop right before trying the newer alcohol version.

Technical notes:
Athlon64 dualcore 4400+, 2GB RAM, enough HD space, 3 real CD/DVD drives/burners, one daemon drive, chipset is NForce4 SLI, rest irrelevant (machine now 16 month old).
WinXP Pro SP2 with NoExecute enabled on everything, all updates, kerio firewall 4.2.2, F-Secure Client Security 6.02 and a bunch of other software.

When will we have SPT driver 1.30 which fixes the dead registry trash of 1.29?

See ya!

I have the same problem.

My PC:
Windows XP SP2
Ver. 4.06 (newly installed)

The image file was made by Virtual CD, and converted from .vcd into .iso by UltraISO.

These product were Japanese version.

I tried to mount the image both on USB memory (FAT32) and local HDD (NTFS, not-compressed).
