Burning MPEG to DVD

vbimport

#1

Am having trouble burning a slideshow presentation to a disk to play on my DVD Player. Have saved an MPEG movie clip (640MB) which will play well on Windows Media Player on my PC but have tried a number of burners to put on disk but not successful. Slideshow came from PixPlay and its internal burner will not work. So then tried Nero Express, Img Burn and freedvdcreator which all fail in the burn process. Have downloaded codecs and updated my firmware. Have MS Windows XP Version2002 SP3. So any advice as to where I go from here please? :frowning:

#4

I removed all the entries that didn’t have any build/write action from the program.

The last one in the log (from last Friday) looks like a completely successful burn. I’m not sure why you are burning a cdrw at 5x though.


#5

Thanks for your comments, Kerry.
Are you saying I should not be using CD-RW? If not what should I use? And what speed should I use and how do I change the speed?


#6

The burn from last Friday…did it simply not playback? Some dvd players don’t play mpeg files all that well. They prefer them to be in dvd-video format. I don’t know if your dvd player is picky in this way or not. And dvd-video has to be burned to dvds, not cds.

You can change the burning speed in ImgBurn in Write mode. 5x is fairly slow. I might try a faster speed as a general rule, but I don’t believe it is the main problem here.


#7

No luck again. Tried DVD+RW but that was not recognised, so then tried CD-RW again which was recognised but into the burn it gave me an I/O error and would not continue the burn. You will see that I changed the burn speed to 10X. Also I am a little confused by the 6 options for burning in ImgBurn. So I “created an image from File” to start then “wrote image to disc” after that. Is that the correct process? Any suggestions? :sad:The updated log is below:

You’ve got a lot of different logs in there. I deleted many of the ones that didn’t have any burns, they were just opening and closing the program.

There are at least a couple of different errors in the logs I’ve left. Power calibration errors can be caused by a failing drive, or by poor disks. There are unrecovered read errors in the verification process at the very end of one log. They are due to a bad burn…and may be related to poor media or disks that don’t match up well with your burner.

The firmware in this drive is TS01. The latest firmware is TS05. You can download it here: http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/office/optical-disc-drives/cd-rw/SH-R522C/RSWN/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support
Upgrading firmware might help.

This drive is only a cd burner. It cannot burn dvds.

Thanks Kerry, but the Samsung site is most unhelpful when it comes to downlaoding anything. I am not able to figure it out at all! Have you used it lately? Any advice?:a

Click on the link I gave you in my previous post to go to the correct page at the Samsung site.

Then click on Firmware on that page. Then click the download for the TS05 firmware. I’m including pictures to show you those locations.

@Kerry56,
These are for comparison to yours to see if the ones I did post about like yours.I went to the same website & did a screenshot.To me they look about the same as yours.Mine might be a little clearer.
If you think they are I just used the keyboard “Print Screen” & pasted it into Ifranview.Cropped,resized & Saved as what I wanted.
