Corupted DVD's

#1

I am using nero recode to squeeze dual layer DVD’s onto one DVD. Lateley I have been unable to read DVD’s that are created this way. I am not aware of any changes that have been made to the system. Some DVD’s will play fine for say upto 20 minutes and then corupt and become unplayable. I was wondering if anyone else has had similar problems. Is this is a anydvd issue or a nero recode issue?

Thanks

Have you changed your blank media ?


#3

Yes…I got a good deal and got about 200 I still have 150 left. I know that this could be the case but is there anything else that it could be or is there a way to ensure that they will burn correctly?

A good deal is good quality at a good price. A bad deal is bad quality at any price. What is your media as if you start having such problems the media is the culprit most of the time.


#5

I guess I got a bad deal then. However is there any way to verify that its the media and not something else?

Thanks

@ Azzatar,

The problem that you reporting is usually caused by DVD media incompatibility between your DVD Burner and the particular DVD media you are using. If you are experiencing difficulty with your DVD media it is prudent to insure that your DVD Burner has the most current up to date firmware available for your DVD Burner installed.

To determine the current firmware of your DVD burner use a software utility similar to DVDInfo Pro (http://www.dvdinfopro.com/).

To obtain information on obtaining the most current up to date firmware available for your DVD Burner visit the DVD Burner Forum at CD Freaks located at (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=61). The folks at the CD Freaks DVD Burner Forum are very knowledgeable and have developed various firmwares that optimize the full potential of your DVD burner.

If after installing the most current up to date firmware available for your DVD Burner your problem still exists you need to pursue obtaining known good reliable DVD media.

A little help in deciding which DVD media to use.

Suggest visiting the CD Freaks DVD Recorder Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=61) for your particular DVD Burner and see which DVD Media other Forum members have reported that work for them.

Suggest visiting the CD Freaks Media Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=33) and see which DVD Media other Forum members have reported as good reliable DVD media.

Suggest visiting the Video Help DVD Media List (http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia) and see what other users have reported about particular DVD Media.

Concerning the quality of DVD media. The saying “You Only Get What You Pay For” fully applies to DVD media. If the price is cheap the quality is also probably cheap. Remember most dropouts, freezing, skipping and other related problems can be traced to cheap, inferior, substandard DVD media.

Some problems caused by poor DVD media can be overcome by taking a couple actions. Slow down your burning speed. Limit all background activity while Burning DVDs including Ant-Virus programs. Defragment your Hard Drive (Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Defragmenter). Check for Spyware by running Spybot-Search & Destroy (http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html)
