IDiscFormat2RawCD::CancelWrite method (imapi2.h)

Cancels the current write operation.


HRESULT CancelWrite();

Return value

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
There is no write operation currently in progress.

Value: 0xC0AA0601

Unspecified failure.

Value: 0x80004005


To cancel the write operation, you must call this method from the DDiscFormat2RawCDEvents::Update event handler that you implemented.

You must also call the IDiscFormat2RawCD::ReleaseMedia method after calling this method.

Note that calling this method does not immediately cancel the write operation on all media due to media-specific requirements. For example, when writing to a CD, the write operation can continue for up to three more minutes.

This method leaves the media in an indeterminate state. For rewriteable media, you should call the IDiscFormat2Erase::EraseMedia method after calling this method to prepare the media for future use.
