ConvertXtoDVD says its burning, but Blank DVD when done?

#1

Earlier today I made an AVI movie with ConvertXtoDVD and it worked fine. Later on I tried to make one with a couple 40 minute TV show episodes (that I have made before on same program) and when it was done the disk was still blank.

No error message.

Here is the log of the one that was Blank when done:

I tried it 2 times (1 time with 3 X 40 minute programs and the other with 2 X 40 minute programs) and both still came out blank.

If it is suspected it is a burner defect, is there a simple way test to make sure it isn’t software? (I know it still reads DVDs / CD’s just fine)

Thanks.


#2

It must be ConvertXtoDVD that is screwed up because I just burned a DVD using NERO Vision (but it still only gave me 4X burn speed as the highest, when I used one of the exact same disks, give me as high as 16X - like 1 week ago). The NERO burn turned out fine (it was a movie AVI), but nero has trouble with TV shows (audio sync problems I have tried 20 ways to fix and gave up)

It don’t think its the DVD-R disks, I ran DVD Identifier. Results in thread:
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?p=1686221#post1686221

Maybe its something in ConvertX when I have 2 or more titles (separate episodes) of TV show?

Maybe the file/folder name length is too long (what is max anyways?)

It’s just odd how ConvertXtoDVD would make a perfect disk with 1 episode, but then make blank DVD’s on the next 2 disks with 2 or 3 episodes on them (and the episodes are only 40-42 minutes.

Is there something I should know about burning multiple titles (AVI’s ) in ConvertX??


#3

The Ritek F1 media is relatively new & if only 4x is offered then the burners firmware doesn’t recognise the media so defaults to a 4x burn speed & strategy. The resulting burn is likely to be very poor. Plus Ritek media in general is crap. Possibly Memorex branded.

You need a firmware update but as your 4166 is a GWA model (OEM) , possibly from Dell , you need to contact the supplier as you can’t use the std LG firmware. I think there is a way toflash to a GSA model but I don’t honestly know how.


#4

If you have any problems burning to DVD-R use SAO mode. It usually fixes those problems.
Packet writing is problematic on many systems.


#5

I burned again using ConvertX last night and IT WORKED (inexplicably)!!! Either it is a come and go problem, or I found the answer

Didn’t really do much different:

  • I added the Video files *** 1 at a time**** (through the “add video file” in the “file” tab. Maybe if I click them both together it sees them as one episode (then fails to burn?)
  • Ran CCleaner before burn (plus emptied Explorer temp etc files)
  • Maybe that the NBmonitor.exe (Nero scout) programs were running (why would this matter?)
  • Maybe that it was only 2 episodes (tried that once before too and it didn’t work)
  • Maybe due to shorter File/folder name? (I shortened the folder name to BL 3)
  • I ran Defrag (but it didn’t free more space)

Thanks you guys for your help!!!

Here is the log of the burn that worked:

Another odd thing is that when I burned 2 episodes, the line with “has been removed” at the end is only appearing for episode 1? Does it just overwrite in the working folder? (I checked and the working folder is empty)

I still haven’t updated the driver (but I will now) and hopefully it doesn’t jinx my setup now.

Should I not be using DVD-R disks (and what are best brands of them?)

Should I be using DVD+R (or some other one? - I 99% burn DVD’s from AVI’s)

Thx


#7

I’d go for 16x Verbatim +R personally as these are generally very good and , depending where you are , easy to obtain. The Verb -R are also good but I just prefer +R media.


#8

Ok, next time tried to do the eact same thing (2 episodes X 40 minutes each) with the exact same settings (used saved project file to start) it created another blank dvd.

Should I try witchcraft / pray to Tom Cruise to get it to work every time?

Same program (ConvertXtoDVD) / same disks / exact same settings / AVI files work fine

Gremlins?

Nero Scout might cause problems, as it is watching for burner use.

But usually cleaning up your system gives better performance; that alone can be enough to fix this problem.


#10

You need a firmware update with this media as I said before. Try your computer manufacturer , I guess either Dell or HP , for support.


#11

I use ConvertX for converting, but use Nero Express for the final burn as I’ve found ConvertX’s burning engine to be twitchy. I too use Verbatim but only -Rs.

Hi.

using [B][X] Prefer burning SAO for DVD-R[/B] helps alot

Lots of people are having issues if they use “Packet Writing”

I’m curious to hear of kind of issues you had with the VSO Burn engine.

If I can reproduce, I would love to report them t the VSO Developpers and see if they can be fixed.

Thank you !
