Mining Errors:

    As requested, a list of the most common errors and their causes, these are the ones I can think of. If I've missed any please PM me and I'll update the list.

    Wallet Errors:

    • "Error 5": This is one of the most common errors we see. Error 5 is caused by using the wrong passphrase, and almost nothing else. Please don't say you're sure it's the correct passphrase - Error 5 means there is no such account, the passphrase you're using for this action has never been used to create an account - therefore it's not the correct passphrase for your account. There could be an extra space at the beginning or end, if you're copying the passphrase from notepad you can get a newline in the middle if the passphrase is line-wrapped, or a newline at the end if your highlight goes onto the next line. There is only one other cause, but an Error 5 is 99.9% of the time "Wrong Passphrase".

      The only other possible cause is you're using a wallet that is broken, and does not know about your account.

    • "Cannot reassign reward recipient before previous goes into effect": You've done a Reward Assignment, then tried to do another one. The first one takes 4 Blocks before it becomes effective. Be patient and wait for the first one to complete.

    • "You may be on a fork, you have mined the last X blocks": This is normally a false warning and can be ignored. Cause not yet determined.

    The All In One Windows Client.

    • "Script Error": Your version of Internet Explorer is out of date, or you're using a version of Windows the AIO won't run on. Install all available Windows Updates to get your OS up-to-date.

    Xplotter Errors:

    • "error creating stream for file e:\burst\plots...": Your drive is formatted as Fat32 or exFAT - Xplotter REQUIRES the drive to be formatted as NTFS - reformat the drive as NTFS, and it's preferred to change BlockSize to 64K when formatting.

    Mining Errors:

    • "DL Not Confirmed": The miner sent a deadline to the pool, but did not receive a confirmation. Normally this is a pool load issue, priority is given to processing submitted nonces, causing the confirmation to be delayed. Check the pool and see if the DL is listed. Less common, but can also be caused by the confirmation just getting lost. Work is being done on the miners to re-submit nonces that don't get confirmed.

    • "Your deadline is good... for the previous block!": The pool received a nonce from you for the previous round, your miner hasn't seen that there is a new block, or the pool has moved onto a new block and your nonce was in the queue and hadn't been processed.

    • "The deadline for your nonce is REALLY BAD": This normally indicates a corrupt plot file. Check the log to determine what the nonce was and which plot file it came from - delete and recreate.

    • "Your Burst account's reward recipient (XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXX) does not match pool's account (YYYY-YYYY-YYYY-YYYYY)": As it says, your reward recipient doesn't match the pool. This is either because a) You've done a Reward Assignment but 4 blocks haven't passed yet or b) you're mining on the wrong pool.

    • "Your Burst account's reward recipient () does not match pool's account (YYYY-YYYY-YYYY-YYYYY)" : Note the blank reward assignment - this indicates a problem with the pool wallet - please inform the pool owner.

    • "Woah there! At least give me a couple of seconds to service other miners!": There's a problem with the pool server clock, please notify the pool owner.

    • "json format error": There's a problem with your miner.conf file. Double check the syntax, or use JSON Checker

    • "Warning <file1> and <file2> are overlapped": Your nonce calculations are wrong and you've ended up with the same nonces in two different files, wasting space, or, using the AIO you've moved files around or changed drive letters. In either case delete one of the files and replot correctly.

    • "File <filename> name/size mismatch": Your plot file actual size does not match the description of the file in it's name. Use the Plotschecker tool in the "Burst Software" section to fix it.

    • "File <file name> Error opening": The plot file can't be opened - normally means you're still plotting the file.

    • "stagger (XXX) must be a multiple of 8": One of your plot files is bad - delete and replot.

    @falconCoin Restart the miner, but every time I've had that, it's been an indication one of my drives is about to fail.



  • @haitch yeah i found the culprit... that is second one that failed on me... im using it now to plot some 15 gb files for googleDrive and play with that for a bit and see how that works lol... time to get more drives i see



  • @haitch Thanks heaps. Now I can work bugs out quicker than ever.
