DvD Fab Platinum Problem: unable to play disks

vbimport

#1

I had to reformat my drive and reinstall. Since reinstalling the latest version of DVD Fab Platinum, my DVD player will not play the disks. The process runs smoothly, but I receive the error “cannot read disk” from my DVD player. I am using premium disks, and the reading and recording process goes off without a hitch. I have tried different movies, so it is not the source disk. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Are you saying that you’re having a burning problem?


#3

DVDFab may have reverted to burning at the “Recommended” speed option, which is too fast in most cases. Go into Common Settings->Write and check the speed settings. While you are on that page, make sure that the Write type is set to Auto, the box for DVD-ROM booktyping is checked, and that VSO Burning engine appears as the burning engine in the top drop-down.

What do you mean by [B]“premium disks” [/B]?..is that the brand name :confused:
what is your oprating system ?
more system spec’s is really needed, also how long ago did you reformat ?


#6

Windows XP SP3
Premium means “Verbatim” in this case, not the no-name crap that you get for $5 per 100 at circuit city.
The burner is a lite-on dual layer, the reformat occured last week.

“Verbatim” that’s Premium all right, had to ask though :wink:
how often or when was the last time you scaned your system ? you know for viruses or rootkits…, …note…just trying to get an idea on your system status :flower: also is the firmware up to date for your drive ?

BTW…welcome to the forum

stormjumer-
It happened after making the changes that signals suggested (see above, third post). I went back and unchecked the “DVD-ROM booktyping”, and it worked to a degree. Out of 3 different movies burned, I only received the “cannot read disk” error once.

signals -
I received that error after making all of the changes suggested, after removing the booktyping box, I haven’t received it since.

Thank you guys for your continued assistance!

What brand/model & is it new, Dvd player? Are these Dvd+ or -R?

Thank you guys for your continued assistance![/quote]The drive may not support it, not all do, but it shouldn’t cause a crash. Other users have had strange problems like this with SATA drives that masquerade as IDE. Not sure how yours are configured. Good luck!


#12

beef barley - the drive can burn either, including dual layer

signals - my drive is an IDE, but since I was able to burn fine prior to my drive crashing (unrelated) it would leave me to believe it would be a software configuration error. It’s strange, though, since I didn’t need to touch any of the settings on any of my other reinstall/upgrades. But the fact that by changing the burn speed from “auto” to 8x helped, and I never touched any settings before, it makes me wonder, though…


#13

If you reinstalled everything related to the OS from the CDs/DVDs that came with the PC, it’s possible that some of the drivers may be out of date–you may have been operating with newer ones before the crash through normal updating. Or perhaps the reinstall put some driver or software on the machine that is causing a conflict. It is a strange problem.
