5040 nothing but bad burns

vbimport

#1

I just upgraded to 5040 and have had bad burns 3 times I had no problems before this. There has to be something wrong with this new beta. Has anyone tried burning after this update?


#2

Perhaps some of your settings were not saved with the update.
Who knows???
I haven’t heard of anyone else having problems.
You’re going to have to give us some details in order for us to help.
Howzabout posting a couple of burn logs?

The default location is:
[B]C:\Documents and Settings[I]Administrator Name[/I]\My Documents\DVDFab\Log[/B]


#3

I used only the default settings in options. Here’s the burn log:

Hi again,

Two things straightaway…
Change from [B]Packet writing [/B]to [B]SAO[/B]
and
lower your burn speed to 8X

Let us know…

[Edit]
Will these discs play in your pc?
If yes, try to force “finalization”


#5

SUCCESS!

I changed from packet writing to SAO and slowed the burn down to 8x as you suggested.

Everything is now back to normal.

Thanks! :bigsmile:

I playing it now on my dvd player and it looks good.
