Lightroom crashes when trying to export

EVERY time I try to export, Lightroom crashes. I get the Microsoft box saying "Adobe Photoshop has encountered a problem and needs to close". The error signature is AppName: lightroom.exe, AppVer: 1.3.'', ModName: discburning.dll.

I have been able to export using the Export with preset - Burn Full Sized JPEGS, and this works, but only for a couple of photos before Lightroom locks up on me.

I'm using Lightroom 1.3.

I'm at a loss of why I'm having this problem, and how to fix it. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Christine

Never had a chance to use catalogs. Never created one. Might there be a problem that my "Documents and settings" folder is on the D: drive, different from "Windows" and "Program files" which are on C:?

No, the drive thing isn't a problem, I've got that spread across 4 drives right now.

Replytoken was saying that there may be a terminology problem, because if you have an import, then you have at least one catalog. That's the term for the sqllite database file that LR creates to house the develop/DAM data.

You can have more than one catalog, but you can't possibly have less than one. :D

If it were me, I'd try creating a new catalog, under file menu in library.
Or uninstall/reinstall LR.

Some folks will recommend wiping your prefs file, but I forget exactly where it's located, and I'm running out the door to pick up kids from school.

Anyway, between us we'll get you going, it really is a nice 1.x product, with a huge future potential.

Reinstalled.

Created new catalog as instructed.
Imported 1 folder from HD, at their current location.
In Library module selected 1 raw image with adjustments.
Pressed EXPORT button.
Crash.


Tried again all above steps with 1 raw file (no adjustments) - same result.

I updated the firmware on my asus dvdrw and now it works.

However it looks like bad programming to have recorder related crashes when trying export anything whatsoever.


Anyway, it works now. Thank you to all the people that tried to help.

Lightroom crash on export

I had the same export .... CRASH problem and fought it for days to determine the issue. Disabling my CD driver was all it took. I need to get that issue resolved, but I can export again. The forum is a lifesaver. Thanks to all.
