Choppy or incomplete rips?

Hey all…

Questions:
I’m having problems here and there with my backups either being choppy (starting, stopping, jumping ahead, or even the last half of a movie not playing / stopping after a certain point.

Most recent “errors” are: Mir. St Anna (choppy/skippy) and Quarantine (stops half way through)

I use FabPlat 5.2.3.2 (purchased) - have path player always enabled and select Jump To Main Title and Remove Annoying PGC’s each time. I back up to externals and then burn to disc (Taiyo Premium 8x -R Lacquer) with Fab and IMGBURN with my BENQ DVDLS DW1655… only recently started having issues with my back ups…

Any clue what might be happening?
Any more info needed?

Frustrated,

The Buk

Do the files play okay on the computer?

Yeah,… they seem to be fine when they come up on Power DVD, just once in a while burned discs have issues??/

Clueless here

Can you post your ImgBurn log?

Are they stored somewhere? I don’t see any log files from previous burns in the obvious places on my HDD… I am still kinda new to IMGburn (used Nero before) … IMGBurn closes and goes back to Fab after completion, so I’d have to do a fresh burn and see if I can have it NOT close on completion to copy and paste the log - and then there’s no assurance it would be one of the anomalies with a problem.

Open ImgBurn.
Then go to [B]Help/ImgBurn Logs[/B].

Not sure what, if any of these you needed OR are the Discs I had issues with, but heres what was where you told me to grab

You state that you use Taiyo Yuden.
Your log shows:
[B]I 06:20:15 Source Media Type: DVD+R (Book Type: DVD-ROM) (Disc ID: RITEK-F16-01)[/B]
Your discs may be fakes.

Well… I was trying some Verbatims because some people said they were okay too, but have had a lot of errors with them too… I will do a fresh burn with my “Taiyo’s” (bought from Supermediastore.com) and see if it still says Ritek… if so I’ll be pissed lol

thanks for the help… maybe I’ll figure out why some are having issues eventually :stuck_out_tongue:

Your log also shows
W 11:30:04[B] Drive J:\ (FAT32)[/B] does not support single files > 4 GB in size.
W 11:30:04 [B]Drive K:\ (FAT32)[/B] does not support single files > 4 GB in size.

16X +R should read YUDEN000T03 or similar.
There should also be letters and numbers at the inner hub. You will need a very bright light to read them.

The MID(media ID) shown in your log is not Verbatim because the MID is [B]RITEK[/B]

So you guys are saying that these hundreds of “Premium” Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD-R’s I have been buying from Supermediastore.com are not even the real thing? grrrr

Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim doesn’t have the MID of RITEK :Z

Have you checked the markings around the inner hub?

clear inner markings are TG819B501269GG

There are also some just inside the silver “RING” area that read:
0305 and GG007074

… Supermediastore claims to purchase all their Taiyo’s directly from Taiyo (manufacturer) and have 99% positive ratings on these items… hmmm

I mean, the way I use Fab wouldn’t be a problem as far as the ripping/burning, etc would it? I always have path on, and click ‘copy non-dvd files’, change playback to ‘main title’, and remove PGC’s

and what does this mean? How do I fix it? no clue

“Your log also shows

Here’s my newest burn using Fab/Imgburn and the ?Taiyo’s?
