Greetings all, new member here.
Sony Vaio (Laptop)R505EL
1.13 GHz P111 (133Mhz FSB), 384Mb PC133 SoDimm
Intel Shared Video
HDD (Internal): 30GB, IBM/Hitachi TravelStar (4700RPM)
External Enclosure uses Firewire (Oxford 911 Chipset) plugging into Sony i-Link Firewire port
External Enclsure Devices:
HDD - 80 GB WD Caviar SE, 8MB Cache, 7200RPM
DVD Burner Sony DWD22A (which I take to be OEM LiteOn)
OS: Win XP Home Ed
The long and short is I have made 4 coasters already. I'm using Memorex 8x DVD-R media, with 8X Sony DVD-R on the way.
Burning programs WinAVIConverter (Native Burner, NOT linked to Nero) and CloneDVD.
Files are converted using WinAviConverter from various formats to DVD (vob, ifo, etc.)...
Programs do not tell me WHY, only THAT my burns were unsuccessful. I'm going to defrag my C: drive. I have my internal drive Partitioned into C: (16Gb with 10GB free and D: (12GB with 6GB free). However, my D: drive is burn only. If I want to burn a movie, I xfer it from my external HDD to my d: drive, convert it, then (attempt) to burn it. I just quick format the D: volume or defrag when I'm done. I keep my computer lean and mean, just reinstalled Windows a few days ago. I dnt run much in my SysTray (Netgear Wireless, McAfee AV. I dnt have any printers installed, so no HP/Lexmark resident programs...
I tried burning with WinAVIConvert at 8X...coaster
WinAviConvert at 4X...coaster
Nero Ultra at 4X...coaster
I ran KProbe2 and posted the results...
I'm gonna try to find a program that will let me burn data (<4X) to a disk to see if it can even work AT ALL...I'll try some smaller files and move up...
