Hi Amanda and welcome to CD Freaks :slight_smile:

Are you able to find the log file for one of these burns and post it please…? There could be a few things causing the problems and it’ll be easier to look at what the program records whilst it is busy.

do you know im not sure if this one was a failed attempt how do i retrieve them when they all just look like one big log with no indication of where to start copying and where to stop

Amanda that file you are trying to burn is an illegal distribution so we can’t help with that.

Do you have a log file of a DVD [B]you own[/B], and have tried to convert?

oops sorry
