[quote=secretcodebreaker;2131805]I burned a DVD a few months ago (maybe it was a year :)) and ‘tested’ it by putting it in a DVD player. Loaded and played fine.
Took it out the other day and tried to play it on my PC just to see what was on it.
My PC told me it was blank (two different ripping programs).
Explorer told me it couldn’t read it (is not accessible Incorrect function)
I tried to Exact Copy it (using Sonic AND Nero) and both ran into ‘unable to read errors’ after reading 92% of the DVD.
Put it into a DVD player and it played fine.
I would like to understand why this is the case, if someone could explain it to me.
It’s not a problem in the sense that it’s a ‘coaster’ but I would like to know what is going on.
I don’t recall ever NOT being able to read a DVD on my PC that my players could load and play.
If you have nero Cd speed or DiscSpeed use it to scan the DVD most likely there are bad sectors on it and your drive is having trouble or can’t read or focus those sectors, DVD Players are not so picky.
This issue is most of the time if not always related to poor quality media that was used, these poor quality media may or will play fine when you first burn on them …BUT…over time become un-readable due to the dye that was used on them.
