Burnt dvd has sudio sync issues

#1

I have converted avi to dvd using cucusoft. Burnt to dvd using cyberlink dvd suite. resulting dvd plays fine in pc. But in dvd player audio is out of sync am I doing something wrong…could it be a hardware issue Philips 8801 writer combo:confused:

Audio/video sync problems almost always stem from the conversion process, especially if the original avi had variable bitrate encoded mp3 audio. I would advise using something other than cucusoft programs.

You should look at a couple of free programs that give good results: DVDFlick and AVStoDVD

DVDFlick may be slightly easier to use for newcomers, AVStoDVD can make use of a superior encoder called HCenc.

Both can be set up to burn automatically using an excellent free burning program called ImgBurn, which is included with both packages.

I finally got my dvd drive back (somehow) I burned the converted file with cyberlink… The product was worse than when i started. Imageburn won’t work on my comp. i am usinf memorex dvd+r, philips 8801 with latest driver, window xp pro. I am at a loss.

Have you tried playing the converted dvd on the computer, prior to burning? If there is an audio/video sync problem in the video before burning to a disk, then you know for certain that the conversion process isn’t working properly. If it only occurs after you burn, then something truly weird is happening in the burn, or is due to using crappy Memorex disks.

If you don’t have dvd playback software, use VLC. www.videolan.org

I’ve never heard of ImgBurn not working on XP Pro. You have some issues somewhere in your system.

The movie plays just fine “on the pc” but in the dvd player (I have 2 different ones) video is a bit choppy and the video is way out of sync. I starting to think that the conversion process maybe is not the problem. it converts fine, output before burn is great. i am wondering if it could be a hardware issue. As far as the imagburn goes, i think it was conflicting with my Cyberlink suite, which contains my firmware. Any suggestions? All help is GREATLY APPRECIATED:iagree:

Since the converted video plays well from the hard drive, you might try using better quality disks and burning them at a moderate speed. Get some Verbatim brand 16x disks and burn them at 8x. See if that helps.
You can find Verbatim at Best Buy or Office Max in the US.

I will try the new discs. i burned this one at 4x, after i read that fast burning could effect quality. could that be too slow???


#10

It is possible to burn too slowly when using modern 16x media. 8x is normally a safe speed, unless it happens to be the top speed for your burner (like some laptop drives).

I wouldn’t use Memorex disks personally. They are unpredictable on quality, change suppliers often and seem to get lower grade disks.
