Can't burn iso to dvd

vbimport

#1

I am using Liteon Burner LH-20a1p, TDK RW Disk, and AnyDVD.
I am trying to backup several movies with the same problem.

The Machinist for one.
I can get file to hard drive using AnyDVD and DVD Decrypter, the DVD Shrink.
My problem is that at each stage of the process the video is fine, except when I copy iso to disk. Imgburn and DVD shrink do it but then the film pixelates and stops about 20 minutes in. When I check the disk with Nerocheck it shows many bad sections.

My question is if iso is fine, why can’t I copy to DVD?
I have been using TDK’s for some time without trouble, I don’t know what has changed.

Lower your burn speed to half the rated speed of your TDK discs. Also have you watched those iso’s on your computer to see if they copied fine. Get better blank media like taiyo yuden or verbatim discs.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I have checked iso file and it’s fine on pc.
Bringing write speed down to 2 instead of 4, made no difference, error happened in exactly same place. Will look at getting some of the media you mentioned but would sure like to know why TDK doesn’t work anymore.

I forgot to mention when showing movie on standalone, colors seem a bit weak, and about 20 mins or so in green pixelation occurs until movie either breaks up on screen or stops.


#4

As GJ suggested, use better media…Did your TDK’s work “perfectly” before now? What speed did you use when they worked for you? Were they from same batch?
2x burning is way to slow, IMO!..
But “weak colors and green pixilation”,is most likely the bad media used…


#5

Thanks,
Yes they did work perfectly before, the only thing that has changed was that in the past I was using DVD Fab, FreeDVD, and DVD Shrink, of course DVDFab is continually updated and it just seems to have gotten worse afyer a few updates. Mind I don’t know for sure what is causing the problem, just stating the facts.
All same batch max speed 4

Well since you say this,

"My problem is that at each stage of the process the video is fine, except when I copy iso to disk.“
And this,
I have checked iso file and it’s fine on pc.”

Then DVDFab or other tools used, are doing their job correctly…And Fab is not getting worse,on the contrary it gets better with every update…And the authors are quick to fix any previous bugs with every update…
I have many tools in my box,and not a single one is the perfect solution,or is w/o bugs…
Try the media tips first!..
BTW, IMGBurn is what I and others recommend for burning ISO’s …


#7

Yes, and that was my point I can’t understand why with perfect iso I can’t write to dvd using shrink. I will try the other brands, but tdk was always ok in the past. Someone suggested that my RW disks are not being formatted properly, but I have tried Imageburn, Nero and a few others with no better results. It’s quite mystifying.

[quote=valter2au;2103756] Someone suggested that my[B] RW[/B] disks are not being formatted properly, [quote]
Why don’t you try a dvd+r or a dvd-r single layer disc. As I think your problem is the [B]RW TDK’s[/B] you are using.


#9

please post an ImgBurn log found
help menu/ imgburn logs

or if you dont have a log saved please do another burn and post the new log.

thanks

edit// as GJ already said: yes most likely the media, dvdfab decrypts, dvdshrink compresses, imgburn writes, 20A1P is a good drive, TDK is no good. please reset dma and get some new -r or +r media.

and dont forget the log.

Try updating your firmware on that old drive.

#12

Something I just noticed.
Your first post stated you are using a Liteon Burner LH-20a1p.
Your burn log shows you’re using LG GSA-4167B.


#13

Dyalysis,
Well caught.
I have two pcs and after faioling on the Liteon I tried the other one with the same result.
Incidentally I downloaded the driver update and tried to update firmware, both versions came back with update failed and gave a few hex codes, didn’t know what to do after that.


#14

Over at CDRinfo your LG drive was tested back in 2005 and back then your firmware was not good for writing.
You can read about it here:
http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=14976
Try updating your firmware for the LG in the safe mode with no disc in the drive.
If you’re using 2 pc’s and getting the same results, I would question the ISO’s. How did you create them?


#15

its the media. have you tried to play the dvd in a dvd player? the verify may have failed but ImgBurn does tell you AnyDVD can interfere with ImgBurn’s ability to verify accurately, please ensure it’s disabled!

#16

Dialysis,
Thanks for your suggestions. iso was created using AnyDVD, and DVDFab. I say the iso was ok based on the fact that I can step right thru the movie on pc, but try the same using disc and it fails.

I will try your suggestion for updating firmware.

Troy. Noted - Stand alone dvd definitely can’t run backup. I agree it is media, but not sure why, I’m wondering if disks can only be reused a small number of times, instead of the 100 or so makers promise.

That’s pretty much the case. And even if the disc does get to that high number of rewrites, the disc quality will probably be horrible due to wear-and-tear, either at the dye layer or on the plastic bottom of the disc, or both.
