I have wasted 3 of the DVD+R DLs I bought. I have done tons of searching and followed all the directions and this will not work. I know the book type needs to be set at DVD-ROM, but it still isn’t working. I used ImgBurn to create the image and then burn the image to a DVD with all the default settings. That didn’t work. Then I found the option to set the book typing and then I tried to burn another copy using the same image at 1x speed and it took 20+ minutes burning the lead in. So I tried to abort it and it wouldn’t stop so I used the task manager to close ImgBurn and then I had to restart the computer to get the drive to open. Then I burned it again the same with the speed to MAX (which I believe selected 2.4x) and it gave me a bunch of errors first (one was something about an option field wrong and a power calibration area) but then it retried it and it burned. I have two drives in this computer, the first is a gsa-h11n and came with the computer (Gateway) and the second is a NEC ND-3500AG. I used the first drive for the first copy attempt and the NEC for the second and thirt attempts. I’m using Memorex DVD+R DL media from Office Depot. I’m pretty sure the NEC drive supports the setting Book Type, but I also have a TSSTcorp TS-T632A drive in my laptop.
This DVD is from 2006 and is for the Delphi nav units.
So am I doing something wrong? I really want to make a backup of this DVD, these things are too fricken expensive not to have one.
