S_OK is returned on success, but other success codes may be returned as a result of implementation. The following error codes are commonly returned on operation failure, but do not represent the only possible error values:

Return code Description
Failed to allocate the required memory.

Value: 0x8007000E

The client name is not valid.

Value: 0xC0AA0211

There is currently a write operation in progress.

Value: 0xC0AA0500


The name is used when the write operation requests exclusive access to the device. The IDiscRecorder2::get_ExclusiveAccessOwner property contains the name of the client that has the lock.

Because any application with read/write access to the CDROM device during the write operation can use the IOCTL_CDROM_EXCLUSIVE_ACCESS (query) control code (see the Microsoft Windows Driver Development Kit (DDK)) to access the name, it is important that the name identify the program that is using this interface to write to the media. The name is restricted to the same character set as required by the IOCTL_CDROM_EXCLUSIVE_ACCESS control code.
