I’m Shelly and new to this site.
I’ve been having this problem for several months now but never had the time to find a solution. I did some research on the internet but I’m such a novice that I really don’t even know what I’m looking for . lol
Brother installed a DVD/CD RW Drive, downloaded software to burn these and left me with instructions and a stack of blank CDs and DVDs. I was completely successful. Not one dud DVD burn.
- DVD Decrypt
- DvD Shrink
Ok, since these work in conjunction with each other I forget the order but you get the idea. I do nothing else. I don’t change any settings or features. I wouldn’t know how to. I used TDK DVD-R, 8x, 4.7GB, 120 minutes discs.
When I finished those, went to the store and and bought two spindles of:
Verbatim DVD -R, 4.7 GB, 120 min, 16x.
TDK DVD -R, 4.7 GB, 120 min, 16x.
This is were the problems started. I would say it’s a usually a 80/20% chance with these new blank media. 80% of the time they don’t burn at all, 20% if I’m lucky. When I mean they don’t burn, I mean I pop them into the DVD player and they run for about 5-10 seconds and just stop.
They DVD player I use is a Panasonic DVD -RV32. I’ve never used any other.
So everything is exactly the same except the 8X and 16x which I don’t even know what that means. So I’m just guessing that what I need to do is change the settings in my software to accommodate the different blank DVD with the 16x.
Is this right and if so would anyone know how I could go about doing that?
Thank you so much for taking the time!
