Hello to everybody I am new here and like all newbies I have a problem ;))
I have recently bought an Emprex DVD writre from PC World, Using datawrite and Ritek disks I have burned lots of movies and most burn fine at 4X (however I have had my fair share of coasters) My problem is this:
Most of the video I burn are from divx files converted or I burn them as data (I have a divx DVD standalone player) A movie will burn ok and play fine for a week or so then it will run into problems, at first it will start skipping, or crashing, then it just wont be read at all, either by my stadalone or the PC. I have used different disks and still get the same problem, I used to use those sticky pressit labels but after advice from a web site stopped as I thought they could be the problem due to overheating or unbalancing but the problem still persists.
I figure its not a PC problem as its burned ok with no problems, So am left with the assumption it may be a disk problem…
If its a disk problem how do I find out which are the best disks to use?
If its not a disk problem anybody any ideas what is causing it?
If I burn over 2 hours of video on a blank DVD could this cause problems? either as divx files or Vob… I can fit 5 or 6 divx movies on 1 disk…
This is doing my head in as I must have threw away over a hundred disks in the last few month, anybody any suggestions?
