Dl not working

hello
this is my first post i have a quick question
i have the new 4.05 dvdfab and when i burn rush hour 3 or good luck chuck on the dual layer i can’t get it to play.but i did get rush 3 to work on a single layer
is there a problem with the program or is it something else.
any help would be great
thanks in advance

Hi peppboy and welcome to cdfreaks,

It’s not a failure of the software, per se, but it could be a failure due to the way it’s configured. Since we’ve nothing to go on…my first guess is a media problem, but at this point it could be almost anything…

Please post a burn log. This will have your MID and other impt info.
The default location is:
C:\Documents and Settings[I]Administrator Name[/I]\My Documents\DVDFab\Log

Also, not sure if you have v.4.0.5.0 or 4.5.0.1 Beta. Either will work for “Rush”, but I haven’t tried “Good Luck”. Generally, it’s a good idea to stay as current as possible. Fengtao can have as many as 3 updates in 1 week…:eek:
He’s unbelievable.

You could try to reduce your burn speed to 2.4X, but frankly, I don’t think it’ll help.
Ritek D01’s are crappy media…sorry, don’t shoot the messenger.

The only consistently recommended DL media is Verbatim +R DL.
It’s almost impossible to find MKM 001 (MIS) anymore…:sad:
I’m using up the last of mine and moving to the MKM 003.
Faster and definitely more expensive.

Bottom line…make sure they are MIS (made in Singapore) and not MII (made in India). Unfortunately, verbatim is producing most of their media in India…and it’s crappy.

Best deal now on the good verbs is Buy.com (15 pk spindles).
Buy.com
$34.24/15 pk, free shipping and no tax…at least for me…:cool:

Pricey, but anything else is a crap shoot.

thanks alot for all your help

how do you do that, when all the web stores that I look at just say Verbatim ?

some web stores do also give a media code - but can you work out where the discs are manufactured from just the media code ?

This looks like the problem I have periodically with my LG burner. I think it doesn’t get along well with the VSO burning engine. The discs report that they are finalized and all is well (just like your log), but they are not. You can download ISOBuster to check them. Mine (even with Verbatim DLs) report track and session still open. Nothing I’ve tried will close the track/session and finalize the disc. I write to a folder from DVDFab and use IMGBurn to build and burn an image now with DLs to prevent more expensive coasters. This is not a problem with SLs (or with DLs from Clone mode in DVDFab). Not sure if this is a DVDFab or VSO problem but I suspect a VSO/burner firmware issue. But the others are absolutely right about the Ritek media.

saw this in one of the user comments … http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817130029

“usually denoted by the Orange label along with saying Made in Singapore”

oh, & BTW: the price there is apparently 25.99 USD + shipping

Two things to be aware of:

  1. Unfortunately, you have to look at the actual label on the spindle to determine where they are made.
    However…
  2. The good news is that Verbatim +R DL 8-10X max,
    at this point in time…
    are only made in Singapore.

This info comes from Jesterace.
He’s the mod in the CD Freaks Bargain Basement subforum
His information is always rock solid…:iagree:…Thanks Jesterace…:clap:

Thanks, I hadn’t seen the egg’s sale when I posted.
Figuring in the shipping, the egg is still cheaper by $3.26…:flower:

[QUOTE=peppboy;1977065]thanks alot for all your help[/QUOTE]
Glad we could help.

I wasn’t aware of the issue with DL burns and LG’s…at least some of ‘em.
Definitely, take my good friend signals’ advice to heart…he’s one of the most knowledgable guys you’ll find anywhere.
Hate to have you blow a bunch of $ on media and still have the same problem.
Maybe try 1-2 with VSO and if your problems persists, use Img as he suggests.

I just recently tried to make a dl back up of Transformers with the latest version of platinum. After two attempts I gave up. Using verbatim dl with much sucess in the past. Note I did split disc on dv5 and it worked fine. Just adding my 2cents incase there is an issue. Thanks!!

guys thanks for all the help but the disks i am using are not verb they are memorex

hey guys i did an experiment i tryed to burn bourne ultimatium with 4.0.5dvdfab and it did not work then i tried with 4.0.3.2and it would play but with some glitchs i used a memorex dl the same as on good lck chuck and rush hour 3 that did not work my burner is an lg dual layer gsa- h22n with up to date firmware.
anymore input would be great.
thanks

thanks, but do you mean the circular paper label on top of the spindle ,or the paper that is wrapped around the outside of the cake box.

As a test case, I’m looking at my part used pack of 50 verbatim +r 16x Sls, where I only kept the paper label that sits on top & there’s no info on that about where they were made . I didn’t keep the rest of that packaging.

I have a similar problem. I have previously burned several DVDs for backups. I didn’t test each one, but I spot checked them and it’s worked on all players. I have some iso, created using an earlier 4.0 version of DVDFab. I upgraded to 4.0.5.0 a few days ago. Since then the DVDs I’ve burned from these isos don’t work on any computer or player.

It could be the media. I bought several Memorex cakes when buy.com had a sale. BUT, I have another machine with an earlier 4.0 version of DVDFab, that I haven’t upgraded yet. I have a few isos (different movies) on that machine (disk space reasons), and I used media from the same cake to burn and those work fine too. Mind you both machines have different burners. The one generating the coasters has a Plextor PX-755A, the other machine has a NEC ND-3550A.

So many factors. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi starscapes and welcome to cdfreaks,

As the discussion above, try to hunt down some verbatim +R DL media…MIS, not MII. The 8-10X media is still MIS.

I think the Riteks you have are memorex brand…I couldn’t find them, but only took a quick look.
One thing that jumps out is that your burn speed is 8X…this is too fast.
Slow it down to 4X and see if this helps. The media you’re using is inconsistent, but you may be able to find a write strategy that’ll give you decent results. Sound like you were pretty successful previously. I don’t see a burn log from your NEC?

I don’t have time to look at your firmware, but recommend you take a look.
Sorry for the short reply…
Good luck.

Hi maineman

Sorry, I didn’t think to post the NEC burn log (see below). I ran a test yesterday. I transferred the iso I created with 4.0.1.2 and the Plextor drive (the one that’s now creating coasters with 4.0.5.0) to the NEC machine and burned the DVD using media from the same cake I’ve been using on the Plextor. This DVD works perfectly. The NEC machine is still running 4.0.1.2.

The NEC machine is also running Vista Ultimate, while my Plextor machine is XP Pro. Both are 64 bit I believe.

Is there a way I can revert my 4.0.5.0 back to 4.0.1.2? I just clicked the update software on the popup dialog so I don’t have an exe I can reinstall from.

Thanks,

starscapes

surely 4.0.1 & 4.0.5 are using identical burning engine ( same version of Patin_couffin) ?
so it’s unlikely that the difference in fab version is the explanation
Easy with hindsight but it’s a good ideas to download & save each new version of the fab installer so that you can revert as needed.
sometimes you can still get to an older version by finding its announcement thread in the forum & following that link
but if you can’t now get the older version try burning the ISO with imgburn
