I just bought a lite-on (411s) DVD-+r drive. I have started to copy all my dvd’s (100+) so that I have an archive. Anyway, I use CloneDVD (The latest) and DVD Decryptor to make my copies. It seems for no apparent reason that 1 of 3 copies are bad.
What I mean by bad is that they get fragmented looking when I play them, and this only appears towards the 1hour + mark while watching them.
My DVD player is an older Panasonic A110, and I have used both Fujitsu and TDK (2x) and burned them at 2X-2.4X. Either media has the same issues. I have even tried to copy a copy that a friens made, and I get the same issue.
My Desktop PC is a Clone with 768MB Ram, 2.1 Ghz Processor, Running a fully patched XP. I have the Anti-virus software turned off, and the system shows very little resource useage.
Does any-one have some starter tips on what to do to decrease the amount of waste, or is it normal till I find the right media to lose 1/3. Also, is Ritek a better media for this then the TDK?
Thanks for any insight you may have,
