DVD Decrypter 3.5.4.0

Hello all,
I don’t know what i did! I am using dvd decrypter to burn xbox games onto Dynex dvd-r media i burnt like 20 games all worked flawlessly! and then all of a sudden the dvd-r media won’t work so i tried dvd+r and they work. Which i had problems with before, i could’nt get those to burn. I just bought a bunch of dvd-rs (1200) and now i am having problems with burning to them. I tried changing the booktype setting in dvd decrypter but that hasn’t changed anything. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling dvd decrypter still no change. Is there anyway that i can change the booktype to a default setting? so that the dvd-r media will work again.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum

You can’t change booktype on -R (dash) media. Booktype is intended only for +R (plus) media.

Your problem may be the quality of the Dynex media. They use a variety of different media codes and some of them are real dogs. What is your media ID?

how do i find the media id?

how do i find the media id? sorry for the double post.

Download either CDspeed or DVD Identifier, and those should give you the Media ID.

DVD Identifier. It’s free but require installation.

Like said chas0039, your problem is due to the media. These seems to me fake Taiyo Yuden.

Can you post a scan with cd-dvd speed of your problematic media?

Is there a serial number in the edge of the dye near the hub? It will be backwards.

Sorry bout that, twitchy fingers… :bigsmile:

If it’s fake, a post in the Fake TY thread (in Blank Media) might be in order!

:doh:

krayz, your log file says you have an old firmware loaded on your benq 1640, get the latest! BSMB :slight_smile:

Question:
What is the program that you are using to burn after you have decrypted the DVDs? If it is DVD Shrink, then what you must do, is:

Go to Backup after you have opened the files.
On the Backup screen click on the tab labeled Burn Settings on this tab (for DVD-R only) UNCHECK the DVD-Rom option on Booktype .
After doing this, you go back to the original Tab that comes up ( Target Device ) and proceed to burn the CD.

If you are using Nero, or DVD Shrink check out this forum for pictures.
