Heres my problem, I just went and got a liteon dvd burner 20x for my pc , my pc meets all requirements but I am still haveing a problem. When I go to burn it burns to previews just fine but when the movie comes on it does the ending first then freezes trying to bring u p the root menu. I dont understand whats going on and I am hoping someone can help me . the model # is DH-20A4P08C . I am so confused. I am trying to burn a few movies I have that my kid scratched and wont play in my dvd player . They play just fine in my pc tho. Can anyone help? let me know thanks!
Welcome to the forum
What brand are the blank discs, and what speed are you burning your backups at?
16x the dvd’s- nx nexxtech
You burned these Nexxtech DVDs at 16x? If so, maybe try reducing the burn speed to 8x or 12x.
If that doesn’t help, maybe try a better brand of discs.
But my neighbor has used the same ones at 20X and they burned just fine so I just done understand why would it burn the previews just fine and then put the ending at the start ? My neighbor has never had that problem with them and the ones I am useing are the same ones he gave me . I tried to check my DMA but when I click on the thing to chage that there is no advanced setting in my controler. I am so lost
OK, let’s start from the beginning, since you mention getting the end of the movie at the start
What program are you using to make your backups?
And your neighbour may have a different drive to you - different drives can behave very differently with the same media. I would still recommend lowering the burn speed to 8x or 12x
I have 2 I have tried , dvd shrink and nero burner 8.0 but my nero keeps saying everything is copyrighted so I gave up using that one
OK, as long as it can cope with the copy protection, DVD Shrink should be fine - it is an older program though, so can’t cope with newer copy protections.
Give reducing the speed a try and see how it goes.
ok will do thanks
I agree with Arahne. Try a different brand @ 8x.
Also, I’ve had real good luck using DVD Decrypter by Lightening UK. Make sure you read & write in ISO mode.
What do those Nexxtech’s code out as?
Slowing down burn speed is a great start. Upgrading to a more trusted name in blank media, Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim, is another good idea.
