Hello all. I'm new to this group and not a very tech-savvy person so I'm wondering if anyone can help with a problem by explaining as if to a 10-year old.
In the past I've had no problems burning DVDs, but my old PC died and I just had a new one built. Here are the hardware and software specs:
-ASUS Striker II Formula motherboard
-Samsung SH203N SATA burner
-Sony NEC AD 7190S SATA burner
-Samsung SH202J IDE burner
I use DVD Shrink/Nero, DVD Decrypter, or RipIt4Me to burn with AnyDVD running in the background. Since I've gotten the new PC, when I copy an original DVD, the burning programs run fine (i.e. they don't report any errors ripping or burning), but when I pop the copies into my (standalone) DVD player it will immediately go to the last scene of the movie and loop it. Menus and the rest of the movie are inaccessible. I've tried on both my OPPO DVD players (they'll usually play almost anything that's on a disc), and tried burning using all three of the programs mentioned above, with the same result.
This only seems to happen when I try to copy original DVDs. Copies
of copies work fine.
I use Verbatim or TDK 16X media and burn at 12X or 8X (both burners
Also - when I got the motherboard, the guy from the store (who recommended the whole setup) had to come back several times because
the blue screen of death kept popping up. Turns out the motherboard
had issues with SATA optical drives using the included drivers, and he had to reinstall Windows XP with different drivers. Everything else works fine now on the PC, I play games and music on it without any problems, and there's no more BSOD.
I thought maybe the problem was caused by some remnant of this
SATA optical drive issue, although there's no more crashes, but even using the IDE burner to burn I get the same loopy copy, and as I mentioned before copies of copies work fine.
Anyone out there know what's causing this problem?
I'd appreciate any assistance.
