I'm trying to take Mastered DVD's and copy them on my computer. My understanding is that the masters were done with Pinnical software. To this point I can get my copies to play on the computer but not on the set top box, which is where I ultimately want them used. The master shows up as a Logical Volume Identifier at the drive level. If I double click it I get an error message: Access to the specified device path, or file is denied. If I right click on it, I can open it. There is a folder named VIDEO_TS. When I open this I see all of the BUP, IFO and VOB extension files. From my research this looks correct. I have tried to burn to Maxell -R, and HP +R (RW), neither of which work.
I am using a computer with an Asus P4T533-C, 1gig 1066RDRAM, 2.26 533 P-4, Plextor PX708A, Seagate 36gig 10,000 rpm scsi160 drive for the video. I am using the Easy CD DVD creator that came with the drive. I have checked that UDMA is set, patched the easy CD DVD creator software, and updated firmware for the burner.
I am just trying to re-create these family movies which were mastered from VHS.
My questions are:
1) Is something not getting transfered when copied to trigger the set top DVD player?
2) Is Easy CD DVD creator not the software for doing something like this?
3) Would I be better off if I bought another burner and trying copying from one burner to the other?
4) I have also gotten at times in the process the error: Logical Block Address out of range 5/21/02. I see that this is a write error, but what does it really mean and how do I overcome this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
