Specs, well let’s see. I have a Gateway NX570X notebook, Intel Core 2 CPU T5200 @ 1.6GHz 1.6GHz, Microsoft XP Professional Service Pack 2, 1 gig RAM, 484.94 physical memory available, Intel Graphics Media accelerator for mobile, min 8 mb/max 128 mb graphics memory, LG GSA E60L burner. Signa Tel Audio which I understand isn’t very good. It isn’t a gaming machine obviously, it’s for business/school. Media: MBI Water Shield dvd+r dual layer hub-printable. The only half-way decent things I could find that’s hub printable (that doesn’t cost $4+ apiece). No digital breakup square thingy’s as it’s switching to the 2nd layer either.
So, thinking back to your first post I tried these in the system I never use in the spare room, popped some of the discs into my crappy little standalone Emerson DVD recorder and Magnavox VCR/DVD. The audio seems perfectly synced with the video! So I guess my widescreen TV with surround sound is the problem. What’s up with that? If the disk you’re copying is in sync regardless, why is the copy only in sync in some players? The discs I’m backing up work perfectly regardless where I play them, including my laptop which the copied/burned discs don’t do with any sound at all as it turns out. (Sorry I didn’t test them in every single thing I own - I really only want to watch them on the only system I use so it didn’t occur to me to try them all.)
By way of interest, it seems I’m not the only one having problems, here is a post from 2 wks ago which hasn’t been answered:
Here, on slowing down the speed, don’t know the end result:
Another one discussing VideoReDo vs something else:
Another question not answered:
And that’s just in the past couple weeks or so, picking a few off the 1st page of a search that turned up 40 pages. So I’m guessing it’s not all that uncommon but unfortunately I just don’t have time to search through all 40 pages.
Anyway, if I can’t get them to work on the only system I really use, this isn’t gonna work for me at all, and I’ve wasted a lot of time and money.
Any thoughts on how to get these to be of some real use? I don’t know about the posts I referenced above, but surely I’m not the only one who wants to watch their videos on widescreen TV with surround-sound? It’s not high-end, but perfectly adequate for someone living in an apartment, and as I said it works beautifully with the originals.
