I tried to burn a DVD of a movie recorded on a Media Center PC. I usually use Sonic MyDVD for this, but the movie exceeds 4.7G and MyDVD doesn’t compress. So I used Nero to transcode the movie - all seemed to go well - and then started burning with Nero Recode. Got about a third of the way through before it failed. Received “Failed to write files” error on VTS_01_2.VOB. Seems it failed to write files on 3 lines in that VOB.
I’m using Nero 6 Ultra - registered - and writing to an HP DVD Writer 300c, using Ritek 2.4X DVD+R media.
The writer is up-to-date on firmware and copies DVDs without any problems using CloneDVD.
Does this sound like a problem with my VOBs, or is it possible that recorded TV from a Media Center just doesn’t transcode well?
The Ritek media has been very reliable till now, and this is actually the first burn that’s failed in about 35 - 40 burns.
